MOVING TIPS

We believe that the best move is a informed move. Take a look below for moving tips and other useful information.

APPLIANCES

Are you moving a washer, dryer, or a refrigerator that is connected to a water line? If so you will need to disconnect these items. Insurance regulations do not permit our employees to disconnect or reconnect these items. If you are unable to we can arraign a third-party service to do so for you. If your washer is a front load you will want to make sure you have the locking kit to secure the drum.

FLAT SCREEN TV'S

Your flat screen TV will need to be packed for transport. If you are unable to pack it let us know and we can take care of it for you, no problem. If your TV is mounted on the wall, we will gladly remove it for you. Please note, we are unable to remove the mount from the wall or replace a mount.

ATTICS AND CRAWL SPACES

If you have a pull-down attic or a crawl space, you will need to pull those items out for our movers. If it is a walk-in attic or crawl space, no problem, we can handle that for you no problem.

VALUATION

When you move you will have multiple options regarding valuation. You have the same options on local on long distance moves, however the pricing is different. The basic valuation is included at no extra cost to you. This option covers your items at $0.60 per pound per article. You can purchase additional coverage that will cover your items at Full Replacement Value. On load day you will select which coverage you would like. Ask for pricing and more details.

PAYMENT TERMS

On local moves we accept MasterCard, VISA, personal check, and cash. On long distance moves we accept all major credit cards, certified bank check, money orders & cash, no personal checks. On a local move payment must be made at the completion of your move. On an interstate move payment is required prior to unloading the truck. 

We never require any deposits.

ITEMS THAT ARE ILLEGAL TO MOVE

It is against DOT Regulations for us to transport certain items. Some of these items vary between local and long distance moving. Some of the items that we cannot transport are Gas Cans, Propane Tanks, Aerosols, Paint, Batteries, Chemicals, and explosives such as ammunition (we can transport firearms however). This is not a complete list but is the most common items. Please contact us with any questions.

LOCAL MOVE PRICING

The way moving companies charge will vary between moving companies and their individual tariff. Mark I Moving & Storage charges hourly for all residential local moves. Packing is charged per box plus the hourly rate. Local storage is monthly, and the monthly rate will be dependent on the amount of items you need stored.

LONG DISTANCE MOVING

If you are moving long distance (crossing state lines) we price your move based on miles moving and your shipment weight. If you are moving across state lines we highly recommend either a virtual or on-site survey of what items you are moving.
