Immediately prior to the move we will then label/tag all contents on the origin side and hang destination placards on the destination side to ensure proper placement of your contents.

3. Move Prep

Immediately prior to the move our team of professional movers will prep your contents for the actual move. We will protect all furniture that requires it and disassemble all furniture that requires it.
