FAQs & Tips

Do I need to empty my dresser drawers?

You can leave your clothes inside but do not keep breakables, heavy objects or things that may spill in the drawers as this could cause damage to the dresser. If it is a fragile antique or made from particle board, it would be best to move them empty.

Do I need to take my beds apart?
The more you do in preparation for your move, the less time your move will take and therefore the more money you will save. We are happy to do as much or as little as you would like us to. Our men come prepared with the necessary tools to disassemble and reassemble any items that may need to be taken apart.

How should I pay for my move?
We accept cash, money orders, cashiers checks, Visa, MasterCard.
