Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I hire a professional mover?
How much will the move cost me?
Pricing for a long-distance move is based on a flat rate, fixed price. Once we have taken an inventory of your furniture and other belongings and identified a timeframe for delivery, we are happy to provide a binding price for your move.
What other expenses should I anticipate?
You shouldn’t anticipate any hidden costs with Elite Moving Service Co. That said, you should also budget for packing supplies, such as moving boxes and tape, and for additional valuation (moving insurance) as needed.
Should I tip the movers?
Do I need to empty my filing cabinets?
When the cabinets are made of metal or plastic, two-drawer filing cabinets can be left full. The top two drawers of a 4-drawer cabinet need to be emptied. All lateral file cabinets need to be emptied entirely.
Can I leave clothing in my drawers?
Do I need to do anything to prepare my appliances for my move?
It would help if you made sure your dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, washing machine, and dryer are empty. Additionally, movers are not trained electricians or plumbers–-you need to arrange for the appropriate professional to disconnect your washer, lighting, and refrigerator from any electric and/or water connection. Additionally, movers are not licensed to disconnect gas, which powers many dryers and ovens.
Are there any items you won't move?
We will not move hazardous or combustible items such as propane tanks, firearms, paint, and aerosols, as the temperature in the truck could cause these items to explode or ignite.
How will the movers know what to move and what to leave?
When the movers first arrive, they will do a walkthrough of your current home with you, confirming which items are going and which are not.
Is it possible to move during inclement weather?
Yes. Our professional movers and moving trucks are prepared to move during rain, sleet, or snow. They come equipped with supplies to keep your belongings safe from the elements. However, to keep costs down, we recommend you shovel, rake, or otherwise clear the access ways in preparation for their arrival.
The guys were great. They were incredibly professional & took great care with all of the items. They worked quickly and were personable & friendly. It was great being able to leave them to take care of everything while I worked from home for the day.

The two guys I used to help move by stuff were very professional, very hardworking, fast, polite, and helpful. Organized the boxes and sofas and all other equipment very nicely and neat inside the rental truck. Very happy and glad with their help. Would definitely recommend them and hire them again anytime
