Moving Tips & Guides
How to Get Moving Labor
If you only need help loading the moving truck you rented, or you’re not comfortable driving the van to your new home across the state, consider hiring moving labor. Fill out a free quote form and you’ll be connected with the help you need for your move in no time.
Only consider in-house estimates ...
Moving companies that only give estimates over the phone could be fraudulent. Even if you describe things in painstaking detail, there is always something that you forget or some unknown feature of your home that could present a problem for the movers, which could end up costing you more for the move. In-house estimates are more accurate because the moving company’s representative can access the actual size and weight of the shipment and the layout and location of your home.
Understanding the Roles of Your ...
Every individual involved with a move has a specific role to play; whether you are the one making the move, or an employee of the moving company or a truck company that was hired to help. There are different responsibilities assigned to each member of a team of movers.
Do You Require Packing Services?
Have a lot of belongings and not a lot of time? Do you own many valuables, antiques, or fragile items? Professional packers will properly and quickly wrap and pack your goods for your move.
Moving During the School Year
Many people who have children opt to move during the summer when school is out for the year, however sometimes the circumstances don't allow for easy planning and schedules to fall into place and you must move in the middle of a school year. While there are many hurdles that come with moving your kids during a school year, it can be done painlessly if you know what to expect and how to tackle the challenges as they come.

It was good, they came on time. They packed everything within the time and they delivered on time. I actually ended paying less than what they quoted me. It was a good experience.

Awful and hear twrenching
Premier Relocations
They were supposed to pick up my stuff on December 31 between 11 and 12 and did not come until 3:30 they spoke super fast when discussing costs. Charged me a fee for a second floor that they promised me wouldn't happen. Barged through my front door they wrapped my mattress and I asked if it was going to warp the mattress and they promised it wouldn't and it did. They charged me for tape. They didn't know how to remove the vinyl covering on my bed frame and charged me for a box. They helped themselves to my water and my juice. When they were supposed to return my stuff less than a month later, they wouldn't return my phone calls. It took eight calls before they finally delivered my stuff (some broken items) and they even charged me extra and they didn't know what it was for.
