What does the travel fee cover?
Our local flat rate, one time 30 minute travel fee covers us getting to your move location, and getting back to our office from your drop off location. If you are moving out of town, the actual travel time to/from our office will prevail. We pride ourselves in giving upfront pricing, no surprises.
What happens if my items are damaged during the move?
We are federally mandated to pay $.60 per pound for any “damaged” item. We do reserve the right to fix any item, or replace any item if it is not able to be fixed. Additionally we offer insurance for your whole move. Inquire about insurance when you are scheduling the move.
What happens if my home is damaged in the move?
We will fix any cosmetic damage to walls, floors, and ceiling. Structural damage if not easily fixed will be subcontracted out through our insurance agent or a settlement will be arranged.
Do you move in the rain/snow? If so how do you protect my items?

Speedy Movers have different size trucks to serve you. Our clean, shiny trucks range from 17′ to a 26′ mover’s box.
What happens if all of my items don't fit on one truck?

Do you provide fixed rate quotes?

We don’t start the clock until we arrive at your home, and we stop the clock once you confirm we’ve moved everything you need us to move.
Can you move plants?
Yes, however plants can be tricky to move and susceptible to dying with temperature fluctuation, so we recommend you move them ahead of time so they don’t get damaged.
Can you move boxes with no lids on them?
All boxes need to be covered, if no cover is available, we ask that you re-pack, or allow our movers to shrink wrap your box for a small charge.
How is my furniture protected when you move it?
We used shoulder harness straps and dollies to help prevent any damage to large furniture items. If necessary our movers will wrap your items with stretch-wrap and/or moving pads before we move them to further protect them from any damage.
