Frequently Asked Questions

What should I keep with me on my moving day?

On moving day, keep essential documents, valuables, and medications with you. Pack a bag with basic toiletries, a change of clothes, chargers for electronics, and a first-aid kit. Also, include snacks, water, and if applicable, essentials for children and pets.


How do I pick the right mover in Emerald Coast?

  1. Create a list of local moving companies you plan to research.
  2. Get a quote from each mover. Make sure to get moving quotes directly from a company’s official website or phone number. Working with movers directly cuts out any middlemen and will result in the lowest price.
  3. Get a feel for each moving company’s reputation by reading reviews from real customers.
  4. Ask whether each company is licensed and how they’re insured.
  5. Determine how each mover’s schedule works. Is your delivery date guaranteed? Will the same person who loads up your belongings transport and unload them as well?
  6. Make sure you’re comfortable with how each mover charges, their cancellation policy, and whether or not a deposit is required.
  7. Choose whichever company best fits your move; everyone’s needs are different.

How much should I tip my movers?

Although our movers are trained to never ask or hint for tips from customers, they are allowed to accept tips should customers feel inclined for the hard work they received.
