All of our moving quotes include blanket wrapping and padding of basic furniture. This does not include any items that may contain glass or marble. Be sure to clarify with your moving coordinator if this applies to any of your furniture.

In the case you do have glass or marble table tops,shelves or doors we can help. We have the equipment, materials, and expert know-how to move your items safely. If you find yourself to be more of the DIY type, no problem! Follow our tips on how to pack them yourself.  

If you want to safely pack your fragile glass or marble items there are a few easy steps to follow.

  • Remove the glass or marble from exsisting structure if possible
  • Fully bubble wrap both sides and all edges of the glass or marble
  • Secure cardboard with tape around front,back and all edges of the glass or marble.

Boxes

We can supply any materials your move may require. From wardrobe boxes to book boxes and everything in between we come prepared to meet our customers needs. If you have your own boxes that works too! Just be sure that all of your belongings are in secure boxes or plastic bins with proper tops. Make sure none of your belongings are in trash bags as this is not an acceptable secure container.
