How It Works

Deliveries: Our staff will load and properly protect your items with blankets, cardboard, etc. Delivery is curbside, meaning that we do not carry furniture into your house. You’ll need to recruit some family or friends for that. Your items will be fully insured while in transit and until such time that they are removed from our truck. Tipping our drivers is customary and appreciated if you feel they deserve it.

Pick-Ups: Our staff will load and properly protect your items with blankets, cardboard, etc. Smaller items should be well-packed. Note that damage in transit that is attributed to poor packaging by the owner may not be covered by our insurance, so make sure to pack carefully. We can provide the service of packing smalls if you need it. Depending on the number of items requiring packing, we may need to send a 2nd person for which you will be charged accordingly. You will also be charged for any disposable packing materials consumed such as bubble pack, peanuts, cartons, etc.
