Professional Home & Apt Moving Services

Choose the services you need to move your home or apartment with ease:


Full Service Moves

A full-service moving company will do everything for you, from packing to hauling to unpacking. Usually, these are long-distance moving services. Qualified movers know exactly how to pack your items for the long haul.


Hourly Moves

An hourly mover is usually a local moving service. These movers usually prep furniture and then load the truck, haul, and unload. Be aware, local moving companies typically require a two or three hour minimum.


Apartment Moving

Apartment movers are very familiar with the challenges of moving from or to an apartment. They will also help you navigate the rules and regulations set by your building’s management office. (All building rules are different.)


Condo Movers

Like apartment movers, these movers also know how to deal with the building management office and will work to make your condo move go smoothly, without causing neighbors aggravation.


House Moves

Moving the contents of a house is hard and time-consuming, so hiring a moving service that specializes in this type of move expedites the process and lightens your load.



This service is great if you do not have the time or you’re too busy to pack. With this moving service, movers will pack everything, crate items that need extra protection, and prepare and wrap furniture, significantly reducing the time you spend on your move.


Piano Moves

This is a specialized service, because pianos are not just furniture. These instruments have many moving and interconnected parts and need to be handled by people who understand their inner workings.



If you want to pack, wrap and prepare everything yourself, and you just want a service to load and unload, then hire a service that will do just that.

Movers you can trust. Pricing you can afford

Quick Moving Check List of What to Do and When

3 Months Before You Move

  • Plan a budget, create a spreadsheet or set up a file folder or notebook to keep the financial information organized. A few dollars here and there add up quickly. 
  • Sort and inventory everything. 
  • Gather quotes from moving services. 
  • Collect shipping boxes, newspapers, packing material (don’t forget your liquor store – many keep boxes just for people who are moving).

2 Months Before You Move

  • Start using up food that has accumulated in the house and don’t accumulate large quantities of household or kitchen supplies when you shop. 
  • Book your moving service, preferably for off-season. From late summer to early spring is the best time to be assured your desired moving company will be available. 
  • Pack seasonal items and items not regularly used. 
  • Give away and discard items that you sorted – (for giveaways: contact favorite charities, friends and family; for discard items: contact recycle centers, or your town about special trash pick-ups)

1 Month Before You Move

  • If you rent, give your current landlord your 30-day notice. 
  • Schedule a change of address with the U.S. Postal Service. 
  • If you are moving into an apartment or condo, inform the new management office of your move and if necessary, reserve the loading dock and freight elevator. 
  • Get all your packing supplies together (boxes, tape, bubble wrap, filler material, markers, labels). 
  • Designate an area for all your packed boxes. 
  • If you can, get access to your new location to measure rooms and identify locations of switches and outlets. Make rough sketches, so you can plan your furniture set up. 
  • Set aside items you do not want to pack, to keep available until move day. 
  • Pack a first day box (pajamas, sheets, blankets, toys, games, books, snacks, pet food/treats, pet food and water bowls). It will travel with you for a long-distance move, or will be put on the moving truck last, to be unloaded first, if you know the truck will arrive the same day. 
  • Decide what furniture you will bring and what you will replace. Place orders for new furniture to be delivered after your move-in date. 
  • Pack all your other items – being sure to keep them organized, by room, by person or by type. 
  • Get all your important paperwork together (bank statements, passports, insurance papers, rental agreements or mortgage papers, etc.). They will travel with you.
