Do you move heavy items?

We are happy to move items categorized as heavy in conjunction with our heavy items policy, as described below.

International Containers: We have a separate heavy items policy for customers using an international shipping container.

What determines if an item is "heavy"?
For the majority of moves we consider an individual item as heavy when the weight exceeds 250 pounds. While weight is a primary consideration, other factors, such as the dimensions and access conditions, are also factors. For example, an armoire may weigh less than 250 pounds, but if its dimensions are bulky and awkward we may categorize it as heavy to ensure it can be moved safely.

Examples of heavy items
Piano, safe, gun safe, furniture with marble/granite/stone top, large pieces of glass, aquarium, pool table

Examples of normal items
In most cases the items listed below would not be considered heavy. Remember, if you are ever unsure it is best to make us aware of the items in question so we can make the appropriate determination.
Bed frame or mattress, couch, sleeper sofa, recliner, television, bookcase/bookshelf, washer/dryer, dresser, night stand, table

What are the requirements to move heavy items?
250 - 400 pounds: We require a minimum of three movers when an individual item is within this weight threshold.
400 - 600 pounds: We require a minimum of four movers when an individual item is within this weight threshold.
Pianos: View our current piano policy.

The weight thresholds detailed above are our base guidelines. Our staff may consider additional factors, such as the dimensions and access conditions, before approving the movement of certain items. Based on these unique factors we may modify our requirements to ensure the safety of the movers and your property. We recommend that you submit a quote request or contact Customer Support at (888) 354-8303 to inquire about your heavy items.
