Full Service Moving

What Full Service Movers Means

Full service means our crews will do everything involved in your move for you. They will follow a moving checklist to ensure that you have an accurate cost estimate, your special needs and questions are handled, and that your pickup and delivery dates are set accurately. The crew will then pack all your belongings properly, we will provide all the boxes, wrapping paper, tape, padding, furniture blankets, and any other equipment deemed necessary to move your household items efficiently and safely. A team of packers and loaders will swoop in and before you know it, everything will be on the truck and on the road. A full-service move is the very definition of “all-inclusive” if that’s what you need.

Full-service movers will transport almost everything you own. However, you may have to transport firearms and ammunition yourself. You also will not be able to ship flammable liquids like gasoline or propane, household chemicals like paint thinner or drain cleaner, aerosols, and other flammable or explosive objects – like fireworks.

Generally, moving companies can give you an estimate over the phone. In some causes, movers may need to visit your home in person to give you an accurate quote. If you answer yes to any of the following questions, you may need an in-home estimate:

  • Is your home 1,500 square feet or larger?
  • Do you have any large or bulky items (e.g. safe or pianos) that may be difficult to move safely and securely)?
  • Does your home have any narrow hallways, doorways, or stairways that furniture cannot fit through?
  • Will movers have difficulty parking a 26 ft. truck close to your home?
  • Are you moving out of state?

Use a tape measure to measure the length and width of the room. In order to get the most accurate measurement, be sure to clear objects out of the way. To determine square footage, multiply the length of the room by the width of the room.

If a tape measure is not available, you can also measure the area of the room with your own two feet:

  • Measure the length of your foot with a ruler.
  • Pace off the length of the room stepping heel to toe. If you need to, you can use the wall for support,
  • Multiply the number of steps by the length of your foot.
  • Divide that number by 12 to get the approximate number of feet from wall to wall.
  • Repeat steps 2 – 4 to measure the width of the room.
  • To determine the square footage, multiply the length of the room by the width.
  • Block off time in the days before your move to pack. Give yourself enough time to pack carefully without feeling overly stressed out.
  • Decide the order in which you’ll be packing up your home. The most common way is to pack up each room separately.
  • Begin packing the room in your home that gets the least amount of use.
  • Save essentials for last. You won’t want to pack items you use daily, such as a toothbrush, until the last moment possible.
  • If you don't have time to pack yourself, you can hire professionals. Most moving companies offer packing services as well.
