Packing is an important step in the process of moving. The packaging will protect things from damage during transportation. In addition, careful packaging will minimize the volume occupied in the truck.

Do not spare money on packaging, as the safety of your things depends on their quality. Remember, secure packaging is the key to a successful move.

If reliable packaging is the main guarantor of the safety of the property when moving, then mistakes in the choice of packaging materials are one of the most dangerous. There are so many types of boxes, films, bags on sale now. Everyone who plans to move should figure out in advance what types of packaging exist, what they are suitable for, and what features need to be paid close attention to while selecting packing supplies. Today All in Moving Systems will tell you about 5 moving supplies without which you cannot pack your belongings efficiently.

  1. Boxes

Cardboard boxes are the main attribute of any move! They are suitable for books and dishes, as well as clothes and children’s toys.

The hardest part is calculating the approximate number of boxes you will need. If you are not going to use the services and advice of professionals, but want to start calculating and buying boxes yourself, we advise you to multiply the number of boxes you need by two, because often in the middle of the packaging process it turns out that there are not enough boxes … Also, for a more convenient and accurate calculation, you can use an online moving box calculator.

What is important?

The most common mistake associated with the choice of boxes is their size. Very often people choose the largest possible boxes. It is wrong! The optimal weight of the filled box is under 50 lb. Otherwise, it will be difficult to carry the boxes, and the bottom may not withstand excessive load. Therefore, we recommend purchasing boxes of medium and small size. Also, you do not need to purchase all the available box configurations, as they will be inconvenient to place in the truck. Two kinds will be enough.

  • The strength of the box.

Here you need to pay attention to the density of the box. Products made of thin cardboard cannot withstand heavy loads and seriously ruin your move. We recommend choosing boxes made of corrugated cardboard of three-layer. In addition, be sure to check the joints and gluing of the sidewalls for strength.

If you properly pack and mark cardboard boxes when moving, all things will reach your new place of residence safe and sound, and finding the necessary clothes, dishes or other items quickly will not be difficult and will save you a lot of valuable time.

Basic rules for packing boxes:

  1. Get rid of unnecessary things that you do not need in a new place or that you have not used for a long time. This is especially true for kitchen utensils, clothes, and even cosmetics.
  2. Arrange items by frequency of use, so that it is clearer with which boxes to start unpacking.
  3. Do not stack items in a large box. Organize them by room, purpose, or any other criteria.
  4. Fold the belongings of all family members separately – this also greatly simplifies unpacking.
  5. Sign and label each box, use colored stickers and other markings. Make a list, duplicate all entries and mark everything in the same way during unpacking. So at a new place, you will know where is your favorite dress and not find yourself in chaos from boxes with unknown contents.
  6. Plastic Wrap

Plastic wrap is very important because you can wrap an object of any shape in it. It is very pliable and does not allow moisture to pass through. Sofas, ottomans, chairs, and dressers with drawers can be wrapped in plastic wrap when moving. It is used for wood, plastic, metal items. Using it, you will easily protect furniture and other items from getting wet, dirty, and “light” mechanical damage such as “rubbing” when touching different pieces of furniture in the truck during transportation. The plastic wrap will securely lock pull-out elements – for example, drawers at a curbstone.

What you should pay attention to?

  • Density. Our recommended values ​​are 17-20 microns. Denser films are more expensive, but budget ones may appear to be too thin and you will have to use them more (additional 2-3 layers). This will increase not only the cost of packaging but also your working time.
  • Winding – the amount of film on the roll. Always pay attention to this indicator, because in fact, you are not buying rolls, but meters of packaging material.

ATTENTION! Do not pack porcelain, glass, ceramics, and other fragile materials in plastic wrap. It is quite dangerous. We recommend using bubble wrap for more fragile items. Plastic film will protect fragile objects from dust and moisture only. It will not provide shock absorption and protection from mechanical damage.

Your electronics should also be wrapped in bubble wrap to protect them in case of an impact during loading. You should also pay attention to its density. Here are the metrics to guide you. The film should be three-layer with a bubble layer thickness of at least 0,16 inches. The thinner bubble wrap will have to be used in 2-3 layers to provide proper protection for your property.

  1. Carpet Protection Film

In the process of moving, your carpets can get serious damage. To avoid troubles, there is an inexpensive and effective option to protect your flooring when moving. This is a protective film!

The main purpose of the film for carpets is to protect against dirt and mechanical damage during moving. Such a film is specially designed to adhere to rough surfaces, it will save the carpet from negative external influences. The practice has shown that the use of a protective film gives the maximum effect in terms of the safety of carpets.

Protecting carpets during a move should not be relegated to the last plan; a good owner must take care of the interior elements loved by the whole family. Preparing for the move, it is enough to cover the entire floor with a film and fix it, then the probability of damage to the interior is reduced to zero. The adhesive will firmly hold the surface of the carpet. The protective film must cover the carpet during the entire move.

The film is made from high-quality three-layer polyethylene obtained as a result of high pressure. Innovative technologies have significantly simplified the film production process compared to the past. The latest equipment regulates and controls all stages of the production process, minimizing time and material costs. The result is a product of impeccable quality. Due to the water-based acrylic glue, the film has high stickiness, after moving it will easily peel off without leaving the slightest trace on the carpet or furniture.

  1. Packing tape

Packing tape is needed to seal the boxes after you put things in them. But there are 2 non-obvious life hacks with the adhesive tape that will help make the move easier.

  1. When there are several people in a family, there are usually too many things. Buy some colored duct tape to wrap the boxes of each family member’s belongings in a specific color. So you will immediately understand which room to carry the box too, even without marking.
  2. The second idea of ​​how to use adhesive tape is to additionally glue the joints at the bottom of the box with it. Additional bottom protection is especially important for heavy boxes so that they do not burst during loading. Be sure to glue the bottom of the container in which you will transport fragile items (glass, dishes) and heavy items (many books, for example).
  3. Moving Blankets

Moving blankets are rightfully one of the most convenient and versatile packaging materials. They are very often used by professional moving companies. But this does not mean that they are difficult to use, even a person who is not at all experienced in moving a person can handle them without any problems.

The main function of moving blankets is to protect furniture and other items from damage during carrying and transportation. In most cases, they are made from a durable polyester/cotton blend. Sometimes microfiber, wool, or burlap are used for their manufacture.

Usually, there are 12 moving blankets in one pack, but you can also buy them one at a time. Moving blankets are generally available in two main sizes: medium (72 ″ x 54 ″) and large (72 ″ x 80 ″). Moving blankets are quite expensive. However, it is super profitable to use them. Reusability is their main advantage! Can’t figure out how to use bubble wrap correctly? Buy Moving Blankets! They can easily replace any wraps, can be easily washed in the washing machine, after which they can be used again and again. With bubble wrap, this will not work 🙁

There are two main types of moving blankets. They vary in density.

  1. Thick blankets

They are also called premium. These are the ones that are used in professional moving. As a rule, they are made of quilted material, so they are much heavier in weight than the second type.

  1. Thin blankets

They can also be called economical. They are usually made of non-woven material which makes them lighter in weight compared to premium moving blankets. Of course, many people are attracted by their low price but be careful, as they will not always be able to provide the necessary protection for your items.

By the way, Amazing Movers provides moving blankets for rent for each client for freeJ

Change of address when moving

Change of address when moving

According to US Census Bureau, Americans move on average 11.7 times in their lifetime… Is now one of this 11.7 times in your life? Then you should remember that moving is not only about preparing packing materials, renting workers and a truck. Even if you have hired a professional moving company, you should not relax, because there are things that only you can take care of. For example, notify relatives, services, and some authorities about changing your address. Of course, it is better to do this as early as possible, so that later you do not face such problems as unpaid bills, absence of electricity and so on.

Are you not sure where to start? Here we have made a list of the main people who should definitely know about changing your place of residence!

Post office

1. Of course post office! You need to start with it because otherwise, all your letters will come to the old address. And the redirection can take up to 12 months. It is very easy to notify the post office about the move now. You can change the address online and even set a start date. We advise you to do this at least 10 days before moving, because changing of address, typically, takes approximately 7 business days.

2. Utilities

Take care of gas and electricity first. Make the transfer of electrical service as soon as you know your new address. Otherwise, you risk being left without heat and electricity for several days. Try to make sure that the electricity in your old residence is turned off at the end of the day of the move, and on the new one on the evening before the move, or on the day of the move in the morning. Then you won’t have to move around your new home in the dark.

Don’t forget about the internet and your phone. Contact your phone and internet service provider and give them the updated address so they know where to send your invoices now.

In some cases, you also need to notify the waste disposal company, water department, and sewerage company.

3. Financial services

Of course, your bank and the credit card issuer should know about the change of address. You can change the address online, in some cases. For more information, you should contact your bank specifically.

In addition, you should change your address in the various loyalty programs, if you have such.

It is important for students to keep their loan providers in mind. They should also be notified of the change of address so that they don’t miss you.

4. Online services

Take care of changing your address on such popular services like Amazon and eBay. Do not forget about other online stores where you shop very often. We advise you to change the address at an early stage because you can easily forget about it later and problems with deliveries, etc., could not be avoided.

5. Insurance

You should also report the change of address to companies that provide you with health, car or home insurance, and so on. If you have federal health insurance, you can find detailed instructions on changing your address at

6. Memberships

All clubs and organizations in which you are a member should also know your new address so that they can easily contact you at any time.

7. Personal service providers

These may include a dentist or veterinarian. They need to be aware of your address change in order to bill you and send you letters. It may be that they will no longer be able to assist you if you move quite far away. All this you should discuss specifically with them.

8. Your Social Security Administration

You also need to notify the SSA of the move, if you receive any benefits from it. This can usually be done online or by phone.

9. Tax Agencies

First of all, you need to report the change of address to the federal tax agency. For this, there is a special form from the Internal Revenue Service. The only thing you need to do is fill it out. Moreover, do not forget about your state’s specific tax agency. In most states, this can also be done online. Just go to your state’s website and check.

10. Friends and family

Remember about them too! It’s very easy today. You don’t need to send out change of address cards or call everyone personally … You can just create a template email and send it to friends and family in a few minutes.

Of course, you need a lot of time to change your address, but it is better to take care of this in advance than spend even more time later solving problems that may arise due to the fact that you did not notify the required services in time. If you change your address at the bank, you need to immediately change it in all stores and services that take money from your bank account. Changing the address everywhere and at once is difficult, but even more difficult is to track down lost items.

Transportation of furniture is an art!

Do you think that furniture is very easy to transport? Then you probably never tried to cope with this task yourself. This is the art, about which we will tell you in this article!

The very first stage is preparation. First you need to calculate how many items you are going to transport, and then choose the appropriate packaging material for each item. Many people think that this is very simple, but it’s far from it. Just remember all the furniture stored in your home or office! These are tables, and chairs, and soft sofas, and dressers, and wardrobes, and bedside tables, and many other little things. And all this property must not only be calculated, but also measured, and also determined what each item consists of! This is necessary in order to know how much and what kind of packaging to buy, because for wood products you need one material, and for soft chairs – absolutely different.

The preparation stage includes the release of numerous shelves from books, clothes and commemorative trinkets. In addition, you should disassemble all the furniture into separate components. Do not forget to draw up a diagram at the same time, so that when all the things need to be returned to their original state, this process could go faster. If you think this is all you need to do,you are wrong! In fact, you still need to separate all the small parts (table handles, nuts, decorative objects, etc.) from the main structures, isolate the glass and mirror elements (for example, shelves), lay them separately, purchase the necessary packaging, and also order a car suitable for transporting furniture and determine the most convenient route. And this is just a preparation!

The next step is directly packaging. At first glance, nothing complicated: take the material and wrap it around each item individually. But you need to stack objects so that they are protected as high as possible, which means that they will not be able to cope with the task very quickly. Firstly, you have to remember what kind of packaging is intended for, and only then proceed directly to the process. And be sure to be prepared for the fact that some material may be in excess, and some – not enough. Therefore, you will have to urgently go to the market to make up for the shortcoming. In addition, you should decide in the beginning how much time you have to spend.

When you finally finish with the second stage, the turn of the third will come – loading. Sure, its complexity does not consist in correctly calculating something or carefully wrapping each thing. Its main difficulty is in hard physical work. It’s great if everyone in your family has good physical form and is able to drag a bunch of boxes. But if not, then you will have certain difficulties. After all, furniture weighs a lot, and to find people who will carry all things carefully (if they are not movers, professionals, of course) is quite problematic.

Did you cope with this task? Well done! Now you can relax a bit while the driver of the ordered car performs the next step – transportation. But even in this case, you can relax only when you are confident in the person to whom you trust your property.

After you unpack the furniture, you need to assemble it. The scheme that we talked about at the beginning of this article will help you. But even with her everything can be far from as simple as you think. After all, all these bolts and nuts are so similar, and there are so many. Amazing Movers Company was created to give a really professional help on each stage of a move. Call us and enjoy your move!

Self-Storage Units

To get started you will have to find a Storage facility that is most convenient for you near your home or work
 Most storage unit standard sizes range from 5’x5′ to 20’x30′ and about 8′ high, but many facilities also offer smaller and larger spaces, from storage lockers to extra-large units. You can bring your own lock or purchase one at the storage facility. Make sure the storage company you choose has climate-controlled units, which are designed to maintain a set temperature range.
A drive-up unit has a roll-up door, which is similar to a garage door, and has its own loading area.
Indoor units are protected from the elements and may have elevators in multi-story facilities.
Outdoor units are usually all on one level and have easy access to moving trucks.
Most storages are designed to store personal or business belongings, some facilities offer spaces for parking vehicles or vessels.
Most units can be reserved up to 30 days before the move in.
Rental contracts are usually month-to-month agreements, if long-term lease is required, please contact the storage facility associate.
Most storage facilities are open 7 days a week, but hours of access may vary by location.
You can use your gate code to access your storage unit anytime during access hours.
During office hours, a manager is available to provide in-person customer service and answer any questions you might have, collect rent etc.
All things you store are your responsibility and insurance for your stored belongings is required. A majority of the facilities offer that service.
Portable Storage
Using portable storage services could be a convenient way to move your household goods or business equipment.
The process of moving is very simple: the company drops off crates at your location, you load your belongings and furniture inside, lock the crates up, and the company comes to pick them up and will bring the crates to the new location as scheduled. This is not recommended by most professional moving companies in the Bay Area. The main reasons are for cost and assurance that items will be undamaged when they arrive.
Good, reliable companies provide secure, weather-proof and climate-controlled portable storage units, and you should read reviews of companies before you start looking.

Moving your office? 5 tips on how to succeed

During an office move, the level of stress is very high for both the owners and the staff. You have to worry about what to do and how to do it in the shortest period of time. And the staff is trying to have work done amid ballyhoo and distractions. The loss of productivity can lead to missed deadlines and bad client relationships. You shouldn’t admit such issues. In this case it is really very important to have a plan. Another important thing for you to remember is to start your planning ahead of time. Ideally, try to start doing this 3-6 months before your moving date (depends on how big your office is). Here are some tips you can follow to avoid difficulties and confusion when organizing a commercial move: 

  • Determine who is going to be in charge of your move. Whether it is a professional moving company or your business team. You should analyze all the pros and cons of each choice. Relocating requires the understanding of the whole picture of your business, as it is closely connected with the company’s image, productivity, and your budget. Also it would be better for you to have a point person being in charge to navigate the process.

  • Set your moving budget to help prevent overspending. Start getting estimates from different moving companies to find out the best possible services and value for money. Don’t forget about moving insurance. The perfect option is to have complete value protection. It can help and protect you in the case some incident should it occur during a move.

  • Once you have confirmed the moving date, notify your property manager, staff and local partners about your future plans. Send out an announcement to your team members to keep them in the loop about all of the changes: the moving date, new office address and everyone’s zone of responsibility. Create a detailed moving day plan for your staff to follow. Maintaining the communication and awareness is essential for a successful office move. 

  • Start your moving preparations. Consult with furniture companies, designers and IT-managers on the matter of improving and the ways of decorating your new space. Create an inventory list and create a floor plan of your new office and send it to your movers. Hire packing specialists or start wrapping your office items by yourself. Adhere labels to all the boxes, so when unwrapping things will be much easier. Plan to move non-essential items first, and after that more important items can be processed. 

  • Talk to your building manager to see if you have to clean your old space after the move. If you have to leave your old office cleaned, arrange for cleaning services ahead of time. Some moving companies provide cleaning services for an extra charge. 

    Congratulations, you did it! All your office moving preparations are finished and you are ready for some stress-free relocation. And the last responsible step depends on the movers you have chosen to work with. Office moving can be a challenge for you but not for our moving team!

What if your stuff is lost or broken during a move?

Are you planning on moving soon? You are not alone! Did you know that more than 35.5 million Americans move each year? Everyone has their own reason for relocating, and everyone wants to be provided with the best moving experience, stress free and claim free. No one wants to face difficulties, damages or losses. Unfortunately, they do happen sometimes, so it is important that you know how to act and what steps to make first of all. So, if one time you find yourself with the words “movers damaged my stuff…”, be prepared to follow the next instructions, which can help you to resolve everything in a short time:
  1. Negotiate with your moving company, if you are sure it is their fault, and you know you have good insurance.
  2. Take pictures ahead of time. It is very helpful to make a full inventory list of all your stuff before a move. Examine your furniture, doors, window frames and floor before the relocating and take photos or videos of their condition. If damages occur, you will have proof that your items were without any damages prior to the move.
  3. As soon as you notice any damage, take pictures and estimate the value of the broken items. Contact your moving company to notify about the incident. Reputable companies will do their best to resolve the situation in a short time. They may also want to see your damaged stuff. If we speak about the lost items, you should use the pictures as the evidence. If you have no photos, describe the lost items in details.
  4. Keep damaged items until the inspector can examine them. Usually, the specialist should be sent out by your moving company in purpose to analyze the damages and do all necessary paperwork. If you are dealing with any hazardous broken pieces of glass, wires or sharp damaged plastic details, clean up everything and isolate in a special box or area, so that they can’t do any harm to your family or pets. Even if an adjuster has already inspected your damaged stuff, don’t move or throw away anything until your claim will be fully covered.
  5. File the claim in writing or in the electronic form. Nowadays, many moving companies have the option to file an electronic claim if any damages or losses occur. It can help you to save your time, which is really very important. Remember that your claim must be field within nine months after the delivery.
  6. Review your contract with the moving company very carefully. It includes key information about the liability insurance you have registered for. If you have chosen the additional coverage through your movers, you should receive more than just a standard reimbursement – $0.60 per pound.
  7. The law states, the moving company has 30 days to respond to your claim. And within 120 days of receiving the claim from the customer, the movers must deny it or pay for it. It will not be easier to deny your claim if you have all proofs, like pictures and “before” inventory list of your belongings.
Keep calm and carry on following the steps above, and you will be surprised how easily you can resolve the situation with any damages or losses with the movers. Enjoy you day and your move!

What Public Storage Facilities Don’t Want You To Know.

Understanding how to use storage space takes a clear focus on what is trying to be achieved. However, once a plan is prepared do not begin mapping out the storage space until items have been entered into an inventory list. Some examples of how people use storage; a person may choose to store snow supplies for winter trips if they live in a studio apartment by the beach, another person might be remodeling their house and cannot store their furniture anywhere else for the duration of the project, or someone may have sold their house and are waiting to move into the new house so they store their furniture, and boxes of belongings, for the time in between residences. These three scenarios are common among people who use storage facilities. The person renting a studio who would like quick access to items in the storage will most likely get the smallest storage space possible and rent the storage for the duration of their time renting in that location. The person who is remodeling their house may possibly require a large storage space depending on the scale of the remodeling project, the size of their home, and the number of items to be stored. The person moving out of their old house before moving into their new one will most likely use a service offered by moving companies, like us here at Amazing Movers, where their goods are stored not at public storage facilities, but at non-public access facilities. This service is deemed Storage-in-Transit where the movers will store the goods in a non-access storage facility for the duration of the time in between residences.

Most people want to ensure that the condition of their items will remain intact going in and coming out of storage. Here are a few precautions that can be broken down into several factors. Take an inventory list. A simple project like an inventory list can be time-consuming, however, having an inventory list is just the beginning of any moving project. A condition list can be made only after an inventory list is prepared. A condition list is important to note and record the condition that each item is in before and after handling by any service provider, or before and after the item is stored in a storage facility. Also just having an inventory list helps you keep track of everything and also helps anyone else dealing with your project envision the whole scenario. Inventory lists are official and when you present an inventory list to anyone working on the job with you it indicates that you are in control of the project and people are more likely to follow your directions. Moving on, check reviews of any moving company that will perform a move in, and move out of storage. Be sure to move with a company that has good reviews to ensure that you don’t experience any hiccups. Some moving companies offer services for storage and charge certain monthly fees for storage. The vast majority of these moving companies that offer storage have non-public access facilities. Inquire with your company of choice and ask about storage options. The main reason you want to do your research on a company, however, is to see what other people are saying about them. Maybe you find a review where someone’s property was damaged, read the response from the company and ask yourself a few questions. How did the damage occur? How did they handle the claim? Was the customer satisfied with the claims process of said company? What sort of value was the item and what type of valuation did the customer pay for? It is important to realize that companies who handle claims with efficiency are trustworthy companies who do not leave the customer high and dry when it comes to loss/damage, however, it is important to also consider the client’s decision and what type of valuation they chose. The type of valuation determines how the company will payout for loss/damage. In California, there are three types of valuation; Basic Valuation, Actual Cash Value Valuation, and Full Valuation. They work in similar ways as they all require reimbursement and define how much will be reimbursed by a moving company to a client in the case of possible loss/damage. It is important to inquire about valuation with the moving company that will be performing your move in and out of storage as the basic valuation is free by law and always included when you are moving with any licensed and insured moving company, but the other types are usually an additional cost. Another big precaution you can take to keep your items intact going in or coming out of storage is to have your boxes professionally packed. Lampshades, glass/porcelain items, crushable items, and items subject to easy wear and tear should be packed neatly and carefully into boxes and the space in the box in between the items must be filled up with packing materials like styrofoam, packing paper, bubble wrap, or packing peanuts. Use caution when packing boxes to ensure that they will be safe when handled.

There are several reasons why self-storage is an inconvenient system for storing your belongings. Time, money, and security all play into your decision-making process when you are looking for a storage facility. The time at which you can access your goods may not be convenient for you, some places are only open 8 am-5 pm and open fewer hours on weekends, leaving you high and dry when they are closed yet you need something important from the storage, or service from their office that day. Most self-storage businesses have what seems to be cheap rates or promotional offers but can soon grow into a money-sucking expense. The industry of self-storage is within the category of real estate and is well into the billions. Estimated at $38 billion in revenue as recent as 2017, the self-storage industry is thriving right now. Self-storage saw growth during the recession of 2011 as they rely on several factors for revenue such as displacement. For example, if someone loses their home, they have to store their stuff somewhere right? Security at self-storage facilities has never been a staple of the industry. Common stories from self-storage customers include rates being changed (increased) on a monthly/quarterly/yearly basis, locks being changed or removed and belongings found missing, storage personnel auctioning off goods without getting proper consent, and even personal safety violations when moving about the storage facility. The best way to prevent all of this from happening is to avoid dealing with self-storage facilities. There are options available to you with non-public access storage facilities which are climate controlled, have security patrol personnel in addition to security cameras, and give you firm rates based on your volume, not the size of the storage locker.

Relocating around San Francisco and Burlingame CA

San Francisco and Burlingame are a great places to live. The breweries, the restaurants, the Victorian homes that line the streets packed with residents and visitors on electric scooters, skateboards, and of course, in thousands of Ubers and Lyfts. There’s just no places like living here in San Francisco or Burlingame, but we would be remiss if we didn’t warn you about the potential pitfalls of ignoring some great advice that the movers at Amazing Movers has put together for you to help you before and on the move day.

• Arrange parking – parking can be a difficulty in San Francisco, San Mateo and some part of Burlingame, so with large trucks the problem is accentuated. Visit the city’s website on temporary signage to order for signs to be put in place that prohibits parking except for you and your moving vehicle(s) on the move day. (

• Talk to your neighbors and ask them if you can use their spot for on your moving day.

• Realize that parking tickets/violations are the responsibility of the customer.

• Arrange use of the building elevator – if you live in a building that requires an elevator to access high level floors, then it is imperative that you check with the building manager to ensure that the movers will be able to access the elevator on the day you wish to move. If the movers have to share the elevator with customers, the completion time may be significantly extended due to residents having priority over the movers in terms of who can ride it first. If there is not an elevator for a high level floor, stairs take considerable amount of time just to move a few items. Please make sure that you figure this out with the proper member of your building management team before your move date.

• Be considerate about heavy/bulky items being moved to high-level floors. If you have no choice then you have no choice, but you should keep in mind that due to the safety surrounding the movers, a bulky and heavy item being moved to a high elevation can take a lot of time and it can be exacerbated if the hallways around the stairs are narrow. There was once a customer who spent a great deal of time trying to move a bulky and heavy item to a high floor number, and she had to end up hiring extra people to try, and it still would not fit. There was nothing that could have been done to move that solid piece onto her preferred floor, and she discovered it hours after her request to move it (against the advice of the professional movers).

Help your professional moving process go smoothly by following the above advice. And of course, you can always call Amazing Movers 800-523-6090 with any questions you may have about moving or visit our website for more info
