should I call our Metro Detroit mover services to
book my moving date?
If you require a written in-home estimate, you should call
about 2 – 4 weeks before your move (weeks ahead for
estimate depends on the severity of date needed to move on).
We generally just ask you to give us as much notice as you
can. Now for moving. If you need to move today, we can probably
do that. To schedule days ahead - If you’re flexible
and you can work with our schedule, you may give us 1 –
3 days notice to move. If you’re in need of a particular
date to be moved, we then ask for you to allow us 8
– 10 days or more notice to reserve your move date.

a battle plan of where every piece of furniture is going

really speeds up your move and could translate into big
savings in the overall cost of your move.
- Lay some type of protection over any light colored carpet.

all electronic equipment disconnected before the movers
- Do not over pack boxes in weight.
Is there anything that is definitely a no-go item to be moved?
mainly those things you might expect - drugs, alcohol, weapons,
ammunition, flammables, explosives, corrosives, fireworks,
flares, gasoline, kerosene, fuel oil, lamp oil, oil based
paints, thinners, varnishes, lighter fluids, starter fluids,
fire extinguishers, nail polish, nail polish remover, bleach,
aerosol cans, matches, bottles with corks, all propane tanks
(empty ones may be moved for local moves only), car and truck
batteries. Shipping certain high value items or collections
may require you to purchase extra coverage.
I packed my home myself?
Why not? But be aware of the potential problems. For instance,
standard/full valuation coverage will not pay out on goods
packed by their owner (PBO) (unless the exterior of the box
is heavily damaged) Our standard and full replacement insurance
policies will not cover such boxes because all insurance companies
classify these boxes as PBO/CU which means “Packed by
owner / contents and condition unknown”. Only time there
is coverage for this is if we do the packing of the boxes.
long would Metro Detroit moving services take to pack my goods?
home is different but we can normally pack a home within a
couple of hours.
I'm on a limited budget for my relocation, what are some ways that I can get my cost down?
This is a very good question. For starters, one of the most effective ways to save money and cut costs is to simply have a garage sale. When you begin packing, look for the items that you dont use anymore or havent used in a very long time and place them in a quick garage sale. Selling these items can add up to a substanital amount of money that can be used to lower your relocation costs when you are ready to move. Another way to sell your unused items is to place them here on Metro Detroit Mover's website for FREE! Click here for more information on this awesome selling tool! If your move is a local move, be sure to have things disassembled before the movers arrive. And again, another trick is to have a laid out plan of where everything is going to be placed in your new home's rooms. This will aid the movers in efficiency when the unload your household items which translates into less cost to your pocket book in the end.
I leave my clothes in their drawers?
Yes, you can! Just be sure not to leave anything else but
clothing inside. Anything else that spills, breaks or shatters
please have removed. Desk drawers should be empty and drawers
left in or have them removed and moved by you.
you move my computer(s)?
but please have them disconnected BEFORE your moving day and
try to have them packed in their original foam lined boxes.
If you do not have these boxes available, then please move
your CPU unit on your own and have the keyboard, mouse, printer,
ect. packed in a box. Monitors however we may move if you
wish as is.
Washers, Gas Stoves, and Gas Dryers. Will you disconnect and
Refrigerators, Washer Machines with water connections, we
can if you wish, disconnect your water line. But it is your
responsibility to turn the water valves off/on. Our movers
are not permitted too nor can they reconnect them per our
Gas Stoves and Gas Dryers. The answer is no. Although we would
like too, our insurance policies DO NOT permit us to handle
these situations. Please have these machines disconnected
and gas lines capped before we arrive.
have a grandfather clock. What should I know to prepare this
father clocks are very easy to move. However, it is your responsibility
to remove the weights and pendulum out of the cabinet and
move those on your own. On most clocks, you will be left with
chains and/or wire line. For this, if you wish, take a paper
towel and bunch up the metal into the towel. Then take tape
and wrap the paper towel and tape around the loose chains.
This prevents the chains from hitting and possibly breaking
or scratching the glass. After this, we can take over and
move it professionally.
