We put the most frequently asked Questions here to save you time.
If you don’t find the answer to your question here please call us today.

How much does it cost to move?
Every situation is different of course but we can say that our price for your move is based on three primary factors.

  • What is the total cubic size of your belongings? Our estimator will measure and offer you a FREE estimate based on this information.
  • How long it will take us to pack, load and unload our truck and if you choose to take advantage of our unpacking service.
  • How far are you moving? The cost of moving across town is significantly lower than moving across the country. We will need to know how far we are moving your belongings.

 

Do I need to do anything?
Not if you don’t want to. We can pack everything from precious heirlooms to your pets dish. While there are some things you may want to keep with you at all times like your laptop computer, important papers or an urn containing the remains of someone special, we can help you decide what to have us pack for you.

How long does it take to pack my belongings?
Packing your things can take from a few hours to an entire day. The sooner we get started the sooner you will be on your way. If you are moving across town or between Milwaukee and Chicago or South and central Wisconsin we could complete the move in the same day.

How early can you get started loading?
We need as much sleep as anyone else but we will make every effort to begin loading our truck on your schedule. Our estimator will discuss how early you want to get started with you. Some of our team members prefer to begin as early as 6:00 AM. We can make special arrangements if you want us to get started on your move earlier. Be sure to indicate your needs to our moving estimator.

I am moving to another state can I follow the truck?
You could but you may find that a better use of your time would be to explore the sights along the way. Our drivers follow the rules set by the Department of Transportation and take frequent breaks as required. Our drivers do not exceed the lower speed limits for trucks set by state law. If you are moving across the country you may want to fly to the new location and prepare for our scheduled arrival.

Will the truck arrive on time?
We do everything possible to ensure our trucks arrive at their destination within a narrow delivery time window. Our estimator will work with you to determine a delivery time that works for you.

Can I save money by packing my belongings myself?
You can. Just be sure you understand that trucks bounce up and down and side to side. While we fasten everything down as tight as possible, things inside of boxes can shift and crash into each other. Use extra approved packaging and bubble wrap to ensure your belongings aren’t damaged.

Can you provide all the packing materials?
Of course! And it will save you time scrounging up boxes from grocery stores and other retailers. All packing materials including tape, boxes, bubble wrap and everything else you need are available at reasonable prices. Our estimator will advise you on how much you will need and we can deliver everything to you.

What happens when the truck arrives at the new location?
The driver will find a safe place to park the truck that won’t inter-fear with traffic flow in the area. An inspection of the location will happen next and a plan will be developed to transport everything from the truck inside while maintaining security while our team members enter and exit the location. Our team will work quickly to move everything and if you have chosen to have us unpack we will begin immediately. Unpacking is generally completed in a few hours and we will re-assemble any furniture that was dis-assembled and move it where you want it to go.
We won’t leave until you are satisfied.
