For example, “Kitchen – Plates”. That way when you’re unpacking, you know exactly which boxes go where.

Moving For All Ages

We welcome clients of any age who want to have that “extra” help to insure a smooth and orderly transition.  If we can help seniors sort through a lifetime of possessions from a home they have lived in for 40 or 50 years and set them up wonderfully in a new place, WE CAN MOVE ANYONE!

“Thank you and your merry band of wizards.” Ann Marie C.

The moving process can be like a “black hole.” Just when you think you’re caught up, it demands even more time. There is so much to tend to on all levels. Dual careers, small children, distance, and the pace of life today can make moving assistance extremely helpful.

We have handled numerous “VIP” corporate moves over the years including: moves to 6000 square foot homes, a single move involving more than 800 boxes, and a move that involved hundreds of museum artifacts dating back to 2500 BC.

We are delighted to help with as much or as little as you like including:

  • floor planning
  • organizing or rightsizing
