When should I get an estimate for my move?
The best time to get an estimate is about 4 to 6 weeks before your planned move date. We offer free, no obligation estimates that are valid up to 60 days. However, we understand that sometimes things happen more quickly than expected. If that’s the case, we’ll work with you to accommodate your short-notice move.
How much notice do you need to schedule my move?
If you’re moving during a peak period, such as the end of the month or during the summer you should schedule your move as soon as you can to ensure you get the date you want. It’s best to schedule about 3 to 4 weeks in advance. However, as long as we have availability, we will book your move regardless of how much notice we get.
How much will it cost?
Interstate move prices are based on the weight of your household goods and the distance that is traveled. Local moves are done based on an hourly rate. You can get a ballpark price to determine costs However, the best way to get an accurate estimate is to have us do a visual survey of your home. Click here to request an estimate and in-home survey.

How long will it take to move?
Interstate move time frames vary depending on the size of your shipment and how far you’re moving. Once we’ve estimated the size of your shipment, we can give you a schedule for your move.

Additional days will be used for packing if necessary.
