For out-of-town jobs, we offer a base rate to cover all included expenses + hourly rate for the loading and unloading time.
If you opt for a truck option, included will also be blankets, ratchet straps, dollies, and plastic wrapping as needed.

It is preferred to have drawers empty, however, it is not required. If drawers contain breakable items we do ask that they be taken out in advance to avoid any damage.
Firearms, whether loaded or unloaded, may not be moved under any circumstance. We cannot move anything flammable, hazardous, or toxic. This includes, but is not limited to, propane bottles, gas cans, pesticides, paint, etc. We will not move any power equipment unless it has been emptied of fuel and/or oil.
We match the State of Texas standard for compensation for loss or damage, which is $0.60 per pound, per item. Although we have this match in place, we have never had to use it!

We generally offer a 1-hour start window for the first job of the day and if you need a job in the afternoon it will be set to start after the first so time will be an estimate, not a guarantee.
We do not charge extra for these things.
Moving times vary significantly and with a wide variety of factors. If given an estimate it is just that, we work to complete the job as safely and quickly as possible, but in some circumstances, the moving time can be affected.
It is best to move your personal items of great value in your own vehicle when possible, however, our team will safely secure the items in the truck as needed.
Depending on the severity of the weather, we may work with you to determine a new move date/time, however, if the weather isn’t too bad we can continue as planned.
