Move Scheduling


    • Schedule and participate in an in-home estimate. Ask questions and be as detailed as possible so we can identify your specific needs.


    • Schedule your move 3-4 weeks prior to moving day.


    • Reserve freight elevator if required by your building


    • Immediately communicate schedule changes.


    • Confirm your moving reservation two days prior to pick-up.


30 Days Prior To Moving


    • Don't move things that you don't want. Sell as many as you can with a garage sale or advertise online. Donate what's left to charities, such as the Salvation Army, Goodwill Industries or Amvets. If you donate items to a charity, be sure to get a receipt for a tax deduction.


    • Submit a change of address form to the Unites States Postal Service. Notify friends, family and employers of your new address.


    • Fill out an IRS change of address form. Depending on the reason for your move and the distance you're moving, many of the expenses may be tax deductible.


    • Get copies of your medical and dental records, if moving long distance.


    • If you're moving out of state, find out about auto licensing and insurance.


    • If you're moving in-state, find out where and how to change your address on your driver's license.


    • Notify your kids' schools and have their records transferred to their new schools.


    • Return any cable or internet equipment.


8 To 14 Days Before You Move


    • Collect all the items you may have loaned out.


    • Return library books or any other borrowed items.


    • Make arrangements to disconnect gas, electric and other utilities. Remember to collect refunds of your deposits from electric, water, telephone, cable, and oil and gas companies.


    • Make arrangements to connect utilities at your new place.


2 To 7 Days Before You Move


    • Get rid of all flammables.


    • Decide what you're bringing with you in the car.


    • Arrange for removal of "installed items" you're bringing with you, like a wall-mounted television or shelves.


    • Pack a suitcase with the clothes, medications and toiletries you'll need the first day in your new home.


    • Empty, defrost and clean your refrigerator. Make sure it has at least 2-3 days to air dry.


The Day Before Moving Day


    • Take down curtains and curtain rods.


    • Collect all keys to locking items. Put them in a safe place.

Bowie, MD to Crofton, MD

They did a very nice job. They showed up on time. They accomplished the job very quickly, and they were just very pleasant and very cooperative. I had a lot of furniture stored on my main level because I was redoing my upstairs, and they came to move all the furniture back to my second level. It was a small job, so they packed it onto the back end of a larger job, and it was just really well-handled. They cleaned up after themselves and finished in a timely manner. I'd give them an A.
