  • HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO MOVE?

    Every time you move, there are several factors that determine the total time it takes to complete your move. How long does it take to move your house or apartment? Here are a few factors:

    • How many boxes.
    • How much furniture
    • How many odds and ends (unpacked items)
    • How many flights of stairs
    • Size of elevator.
    • Long hallways/long carry out to the truck
    • How many items need to be disassembled & reassembled.
    • How close we are able to park the truck to your location.

    When Planning for the cost of your move it’s important to understand whether or not your move fits within the average move. Remember, an average will contain people who are moving furniture only as well as those with a full house. The following is what we have found to be the average amount of time it takes to move:

  • WHAT TYPES OF INSURANCE WILL I BE OFFERED?

    LIMITED LIABILITY:This is the basic coverage required by law and doesn’t cost you anything. Under limited liability, the mover is responsible for 60 cents per pound per item for an interstate move.

    ADDED VALUATION:This type allows you to collect the amount based on the current replacement value of the item, minus depreciation. The amount you pay for this coverage depends on how much you declare your goods are worth.

    FULL VALUE:This insurance costs the most and covers the actual cost of an item’s replacement or repair, without any deduction for depreciation. Before purchasing coverage from the moving company, check your homeowner’s insurance policy to see if it will cover your goods during a move and compare plans.
