Your move can still happen. Arrange to keep moving boxes covered if you are placing them outside in the rain. Furniture and electronics can be damaged by rain. Ask your mover for advice on how to protect them. Shrink wrap may be an option. Be careful of wet slippery surfaces inside and outside your home. Finally if lightening is in the area, take a break for everyone’s safety.
What’s the best way to pack?
Start small. Experts say you get small stuff organized and boxed before tackling larger items. Also work room by room to make unpacking easier later on.
How do I pack last minute household stuff I need to use until moving day?
One smart idea we saw: keep a wardrobe box in your residence. Use it to pack your bedsheets, towels and other items you needed up to moving day. Mark it so you can unpack this box as one of the first at your new home.
What if my new residence isn’t ready?
Many movers can arrange to store your items near your destination. But you will be charged a storage fee and also for your eventual delivery. You may wish to ask if items will be stored in the company’s own facilities or if they use third party storage.
Why should i hire a mover?
Hiring professional movers reduces the chances you’ll get injured moving heavy and awkward items twice, once on the packing and once of the delivery end. Also, movers will have the right equipment to move your items. Hiring them also frees you up to finish all the last minute details of your move.
What if my stuff is damaged during a move?
Your moving company can explain the coverage they offer on moves. But the basic limited liability coverage is typically paid by weight (30 to 60 cents a pound) not by the type of item. You may also be able to purchase full or declared value protection. This can make movers liable for the replacement value of any damaged or missing items.
How much will it cost to move?
Most movers will offer a free estimate prior to your move. A representative will visit your home to see the items you plan to move. For an intersate move they will estimate a cost based on approximate weight and amount of items you are moving. Your actual cost on move day for an interstate move will be based on the actual weight and the distance traveled, plus any insurance or additional services you add or that are required for your location.
How far ahead should I call a mover?
Experts advise four to six weeks ahead of your scheduled move. Or longer if it is a complicated job.

Chad and Peirre were very professional, worked quickly even though I was moving out of a basement apartment and the poor guys made a hundred trip up the steps. All I have to say is Desinged to Move should be your only choice.

When I booked our move, I received a 2 hour window when the movers would arrive. Then the day of, I received a text of their more exact timing of arrival and that they were on their way. They showed up on time and were extremely personable and were professional. They introduced themselves and were friendly to work with. The guys loaded and unloaded our things at our new house without any issues. We had an overall stress free and easy move. They even moved a treadmill from our old basement to our new basement with ease. I highly recommend this company!

DTM was great! The movers arrived on time, were polite, nice, and got everything from point A to point B. We moved from a one bedroom apartment to a bungalow house and the entire move took ~4 hours. We insured some high value items and nothing broke, they took good care of those for us and were prepared to wrap them in moving blankets. They were efficient and very helpful in our move. I would definitely recommend them!

Unbelievable service and Professionalism . Pierre and his crew are the best around . Worked all day in the 90 degree heat , had great attitudes, friendly , careful and courteous all day long

Jim the owner was always available during the moving process. The workers were very professional and had great attitudes the hole time. I was local move and the guys did a great job and everything went perfectly. Nothing damaged and could not have been happier. I highly recommend Designed to Move.
21:54 17 Aug 20
Jim, the owner was good at answering all my questions beforehand. I had a few issues that came up during the move (I moved multiple times locally & across country-no move is perfect), Jim was responsive in handling them.I would recommend him & his company, he keeps the line of communication open.
22:21 14 Aug 20
I can't say enough good things about the 3 men who moved us from designed to move, Jalen, Damion and Jordan. They moved a house full of furniture, most of it antiques, and did not damage to the walls or the furniture. They were friendly, polite and professional. When asked to move some of the furniture to reconfigure a room they were pleasant and accommodating. I would hire them again without hesitation.
18:29 22 Jul 20
Couldn't say enough about the 3 gentlemen that came to my house and helped me move large pieces out. They did arrive late but they still showed up after working all day in the 90 degree weather. Would highly recommend then for anyone need things picked up and put down (lol) Thanks guys!
11:25 07 Jul 20
This company is excellent. I had to move thousands of pounds of lab equipment the next day. They were one of the only companies available to move in such a short time frame and they did an excellent job. They showed up on time and moved the equipment efficiently and safely. I fully recommend them for all your moving needs.

This was a fantastic experience from start to finish. Jim was very friendly and gave me excellent service over the phone. He was very helpful in answering all of our questions and concerns. The delivery guys, Will and Jalen, did a great job! They were on time and handled everything with care. Two thumbs up!!! We would recommend this place no doubt! Thanks Designed to Move!

I had a local move (about 30 mins away) with 2 stops and contacted ~6 different moving companies for quotes. After dealing with each company, Designed to Move impressed me with their professionalism, and quick response time. While they were not the cheapest movers I found, they were close and these 2 factors played a roll in my choice. Originally I scheduled an appointment for a Saturday, the next morning Jim (owner) called me an apologized that there was an error and Saturday wasn't available. He offered me a 5% discount and we rescheduled for Sunday. Sunday morning arrived and the movers where scheduled to show up between 9-11am. They showed up at 10:45 and immediately got to work. Jay and Billy worked hard, knew their stuff, and took their time when needed on delicate items. I was extremely impressed with the 2 of them. They were friendly, but got down to business. The rest of the move went the same way. When it was time to pay the bill, they were aware of the discount and included it without me even bringing it up. I would recommend and will use Designed to Move for all future local moves I have. Thank you to Jim, Jay, and Billy for a great experience.

Needed a large bar moved from my dining room to the basement. Could not get any moving companies to call me back. Called these guys they came out the next day and did a great job at a great price. Very polite and careful. Would not use anyone else
17:14 04 Dec 19
I’ve used this company 3x now and I’m about to schedule my fourth move with them and realized I’ve never written a review. These guys are amazing! Always prompt, efficient, and faster than any humans should be. I’ve had them lug heavy furniture up 3 floors of stairs and tight corners and they somehow always smile when cursing me would be appropriate. Great coupon on yelp for them that they always honor.
15:02 04 Dec 19
I have used other movers in the past but these movers stood out. From the initial phone call experience to the actual move, everything was exemplary. I received prompt return phone calls and honest and detailed planning. The two movers, Dylan and Sean, were very caring and took great care of all our property. They were efficient and equally caring at the destination and made sure the furniture were in the locations we desired and boxes were in the optimum areas so that we wouldn't have to further move the boxes in order to unpack them. Furthermore, Sean and Dylan were very pleasant and funny. They made a usually dreaded moving experience a fun one.
