Basic Household Moving Services
- Loading - We find the balance between speed, effectiveness, and safety that works best for you. Each of your belongings are loaded in a systematic process to optimize valuable space. We want to ensure that all of your items fit with little wasted space. We ensure that all furniture is wrapped in furniture pads. On upholstered furniture, we recommend shrink wrap, a strong, clear plastic that completely covers the furniture, protecting it from dirt and damage. Each truck is equipped with its own roll of shrink wrap.
