HOME MOVES

At Eagle Moving, we’re here to help you get your stuff wherever you need it to go.  And we’ll move on your terms, meaning you can do the packing, or we can do the packing. Or maybe we can share the job. We can move a few heavy things from one room to another, or move everything you have to a new location across town — or a long distance. And we’ll schedule your move when it is most convenient for you. Learn more about our:

Quick Packing Tips / Frequently Asked Questions

Want to avoid casualties and unnecessary stress on your move? Here are some quick tips for self-packers to help keep your possessions safe from damage during transport and make your arrival easier.

  • Start packing the items you don’t need as soon as you know you are moving.
  • Pack one room at a time and note the room and detailed contents of the box on labels on the tops and sides of all boxes.
  • Do not over-pack boxes — the heavier the item, the smaller the box.
  • Pack heavier items on the bottom of a box, and lighter items at the top.
  • Be sure to securely seal small, loose items in a bag or small box before placing them into a larger box. 
  • Do not interlock box tops. Instead seal them safely with packing tape.
  • Pack the things that you’ll need right away in the same box and have it loaded on the truck last so things are immediately available at your new place.
  • To minimize the chance of breakage, pack and unpack over a padded surface so that if you do drop an item, it will land on a cushioned surface.
  • Do not pack lampshades and fine breakables in newspaper as the ink can permanently stain them.
  • Place screws, bolts and other loose items in a bag and tape them to the underside of the furniture and or items they belongs to for quick re-assembly.
  • Keep any tools you’ll need to reassemble furniture in a separate box that is clearly marked.
  • Plan to transport important records yourself. Do not pack them away and move them with the rest of your household goods.

Out-Of-State Moves

Interstate moves can get complicated, but the right mover can help smooth the journey. Eagle Movers is an independent moving company and not affiliated with any major van lines. This means that we can provide more personalized service and the consistency of working with the same people throughout your move. Even better, we typically offer more competitive pricing and faster turnaround than larger companies such as Mayflower, Bekins or North American.

Why trust Eagle for your out-of-state move:

  • Eagle owners are hands-on in all aspects of the business, so your entire moving experience is managed by an owner of the company.
  • We offer free, no-obligation estimates in your home.
  • Large moving companies have to pay franchise fees. We are local and independent — which can save you money.
  • The big guys typically have a 2 -3 week service window. Eagle can schedule your move in a matter of days.
  • The movers who load your possessions also unload them. We never hand off your move to anyone else.
  • When you call, you always talk to someone who knows you and understands your needs.
  • We offer a full assortment of packing supplies and services.

Interstate Moving

Tips for Choosing an Interstate Moving Company

  • Be sure your receive an in-home estimate for your move. Never accept a bid over the phone. It will be inaccurate, and it is illegal.
  • Use a registered mover. Make sure the mover you select has been assigned a U.S. D.O.T. number, is licensed in interstate transportation of household goods and has proper insurance.
  • Be cautious if a moving company representative seems to be in a call center. This is an indication that your move will be brokered out to someone local and your bid will include an unnecessary mark-up and lack the consistency of service you need.
  • Choose a local company from the city you are moving from, so that you can check references and have an in-home consultation and estimate.
  • When comparing quotes, carefully examine the services offered, and make sure all estimates are apples-to-apples comparisons. Not all moving companies calculate costs the same way. If you are unsure ask questions.
