PRE- MOVE PREPARATION

 Advance preparation is the key to successful moves. We provide a free no-obligation consultation where we will discuss your needs and how we can help meet them. We will give you a packet of information to keep that includes answers to commonly asked moving questions, handy checklists for change of addresses, last-minute move reminders, and how to prepare for packers in order to save time and money.


During this visit we evaluate your situation and give you personalized tips and referrals that will help make your move easier whether or not you decide to take advantage of our services. We are available for services prior to packing including sorting through closets and basements, assisting you with floor planning and choices of what to take, sell, donate, or keep in the family. If you are ready, we can pick up items you wish to consign and deliver them to our consignment store for processing. Any items not accepted by our store manager can be picked up for donation at our site. Our contracts will spell out this process for you.


After you have returned our cost agreement and signed our liability policy we are available anytime to answer questions or to visit and re-evaluate your needs based on how much you have been able to complete independently.

During the Move

For many people, the job of packing is physically and emotionally exhausting. Our experienced personnel can pack everything to be moved, shipped, or sold. We provide all the packing materials and the know-how so you can relax. On moving day, if no family is available, we can assist you in last minute tasks while the moving company is loading up. If needed, we can then transport you and/or the things you want to hand-carry to your new home. The same team that arrived to pack your belongings will be there to unpack and organize your new home, putting everything right where you need to use it. We will even polish your furniture, re-connect your computer, and make your bed! You can feel settled from the very start. Most people feel more comfortable when items in their new home are arranged (as much as possible) the same way that they were before the move. We will photograph your original arrangements and if you wish, we will duplicate them the day of the unpack. This saves you from having to make so many decisions on placement of items when you first arrive at your new home.

After The Move

Relocating to a new home is always an emotional and stressful time. There is so much to do....


After the move, our caring and talented staff will return to hang your pictures after you have had some time to get a feel for your new environment and think about placement.
We can scrub-clean your previous home to prepare it for sale, or help box-up items you left behind but want transported elsewhere.

We can do a complete clean-out of your previous home.  We charge only for the time spent onsite.  If a donation inventory is needed, this is done on site, or you can do this yourself.  At no additional charge, we sort cast-offs into donations, recyclable materials, trash, and hazardous wastes and deliver all these to the appropriate sites. 

We do everything we can to be a “green” company by reusing boxes and wrapping products and by proper recycling of everything possible. 


 We offer complete clean-outs of homes after move-out. This often entails having a dumpster on site, but if possible, we prefer to bag smaller amounts of trash and take all re-usable items to our warehouse at NEIL'S DISCO & FURNITURE CO., where it is inventoried and tagged for sale or donation. Several different charities pick up loads on a regular basis at our site and we can supply you with donation receipts if needed. We can do a light sweep clean after the clean-out or a thorough cleaning depending on your wishes.
