“Why pay a mover, when I could do this myself?”

STOP! Avoid the hassle of driving across town to rent a truck, purchase wrapping supplies, tools & equipment. Don’t punish yourself with hours of heavy lifting. Save your back. Stop calling friends and family to help you. When everyone is sending you to voicemail on “moving day”, give us call. We’ll pick up. We’ll do all of the huffing and puffing and heavy lifting to ensure your small move is easy-peasy stress-freezy.

Furniture delivery/specialty items/donation drop off

Is that newly purchased couch too big for your car? Are you in need for a delivery from HD Buttercup, Ashley’s, Macy’s, West Elm, Rooms-To-Go, IKEA, Sam’s Club, Costco, Big Lots, Craigslist, OfferUp, Letgo or a local Consignment Shop? Or would you like to donate unwanted items to Goodwill, The Salvation Army or a local donation center? We’ve got’cha covered! (wink)

Loading/unloading help

Do you really want to do this yourself? I don’t think so. Loading /unloading a moving truck or storage container is hard work. Phew! We’re not saying you’re out of shape, but you’re probably not in The Small Delivery Co shape. Considered by many in the moving industry, but mainly ourselves as “moving wizards”, we will utilize every cubic inch of space on your rental truck/container. Simply put, we’ll maximize efficiency.

In-house move/same building/complex/ hoisting

Need to swap furniture from one room to another to accommodate those pesky (ahem) I mean wonderful in-laws? Whether it’s de-cluttering your garage or staging your home for an upcoming event, we’ve got your back. Moving within the same building or moving between buildings that are in the same complex? Check! We can do that. “The couch doesn’t fit through the door, now what?” No worries, we can hoist that big son of a gun up one floor. We can get it where it belongs.

Furniture assembly/appliance installation

Taking apart furniture is one thing, but reassembling so as to ensure your bedframe doesn’t collapse while your sleeping, well, that takes some skill. Good news, we offer disassembly and reassembly for the following items: Daybeds, entertainment centers, bedframes, bunk beds, baby cribs, dining tables and office furniture. We also offer the removal and basic hook up of all freestanding appliances (e.g., freestanding refrigerators, ranges, washers and dryers)

Moving

Use appropriate size boxes (Keep boxes under 45lbs).

Place heavy items, like books, canned goods in small boxes; light items, like linens and pillows, in larger boxes. (Large boxes packed with heavy items are the number one complaint of all movers)

Empty all drawers from dressers and nightstands.

We need furniture to be as light as possible when transporting.

Place heavier items on the bottom of boxes and lighter items on top. Don’t leave empty spaces in the boxes.

Fill in gaps with clothing, towels, or packing paper. Boxes that feel loosely packed or
unbalanced can easily be crushed.

Avoid mixing items from different rooms in the same box.

It will make your packing / unpacking a lot easier.

Label each box with the room it’s destined for and a description of its contents.

This will help you and your movers know where every box belongs in your new place. Numbering each box and keeping an inventory list in a small notebook is a good way to keep track of what you’ve packed―and to make sure you still have
everything when you unpack.

Tape boxes well.

Use a couple of pieces of tape to close the bottom and top seams, then use one of the movers’ techniques―making a couple of wraps all the way around the box’s top and bottom edges, where stress is concentrated.

Bundle breakables.

As you pack your dishes, put packing paper around each one, then wrap bundles of five or six together with more paper. Pack dishes on their sides, never flat. And use plenty of bunched-up paper as padding above and below. Cups and bowls can be placed inside one another, with paper in between, and wrapped three or four in a bundle.

Let the moving begin!
