FAQ


How much will it cost to move?

All of our moves are done on an hourly rate.  We determine that rate based on how many men and trucks you need to get your job done smoothly and in a reasonable amount of time.  Give us a call and we can ask you a few simple questions and give you a quick quote or set up a free in home estimate.

Should I hire a moving company or just do it myself?

You could do it yourself but if you have more than a car load it might be time to call us.  Once you add up the cost of a truck, gas and finding friends who will help you or hiring labor you’ll find it’s not much less then hiring us.  Plus you won’t break your back or your furniture.

How do I find a moving company I can trust?

We have found that asking your friends and coworkers for some recommendations is a good way to start. Once you get a few names check them out online and give them a call.  Go with who you feel comfortable with.  Beware of companies that will lowball the cost to get you to book.  Always get two or three quotes and don’t use the cheapest.  And always make sure that they are licensed with the state, insured and bonded.

What time will my movers arrive?

Most of our jobs are either half day or full day jobs. Full day jobs start between 8:30-9 and half day can either be 8:30-9 or 12-2.

What happens if I have more or fewer items on local moving day?

 We will only charge you for the time and men needed to complete the actual move. When we give an initial estimate, it is based on the amount and type of items that were discussed.  If you decide to move some yourself and it takes less time than estimated, then you will save some money. If you decide that you want to have our movers do additional work and it takes more time, then it may bring additional cost.

TAX INFO
If you moved due to a change in your job or business location, or because you started a new job or business, you may be able to deduct your reasonable moving expenses but not any expenses for meals. You can deduct your moving expenses if you meet all three of the following requirements:
Your move closely relates to the start of work
You meet the distance test
You meet the time test
Move Related to Start of Work – Your move must closely relate both in time and in place to the start of work at your new location. You can consider moving expenses incurred within one year from the date you first reported to work at the new location as closely related in time to the start of work. A move generally relates closely in place if the distance from your new home to the new job location is not more than the distance from your former home to the new job location. For exceptions to these requirements, see Publication 521,Moving Expenses.
The distance test – Your new workplace must be at least 50 miles farther from your old home than your old job location was from your old home. If you had no previous workplace, your new job location must be at least 50 miles from your old home.
The time test – If you are an employee, you must work full-time for at least 39 weeks during the first 12 months immediately following your arrival in the general area of your new job location. If you are self-employed, you must work full time for at least 39 weeks during the first 12 months and for a total of at least 78 weeks during the first 24 months immediately following your arrival in the general area of your new work location.
