What to expect
on the move day


Walkthrough and Parking the truck:

Walkthrough and Parking the truck:

Our friendly crew will arrive within the scheduled time frame and introduce themselves to you with a smile. We'll ask you to show us which furniture needs to be moved and which will stay. We'll also note any pre-existing damage to furniture for liability reasons. We want to ensure efficient transportation of your belongings, so we'll typically park the truck after the walkthrough. This allows us to position it optimally for a streamlined loading process. Please let us know if your driveway is freshly poured, paved, or painted, as it may affect our parking options.

Protection and Loading:

Protection and Loading:

We are experts at safeguarding your precious belongings. Our movers will cover and protect your furniture, doorjambs, floors, banisters, and other high-traffic areas of your home. Some large items like beds and desks may be taken apart before being protected. We follow an efficient system to utilize every inch of space. Starting at the front of the truck, we create a solid base with items like dressers and nightstands. We then gradually stack boxes and square-shaped materials on top. Lighter objects that can't bear weight, such as artificial trees, chairs, and large miscellaneous items, go on the top tier. This process is repeated until the truck is loaded, and items that don't stack well, such as bicycles or yard equipment, are added at the end.

Pick up Walkthrough:

Pick up Walkthrough:

After loading the truck, we'll go through your home again to ensure nothing is left behind. Feel free to point out any additional items you'd like included in the move.
Once you've confirmed that the home is clear and the unloading address is correct, we'll head to your new home. Please ensure someone capable is present when we arrive.

New Home Walkthrough and Unloading:

New Home Walkthrough and Unloading

Similar to the home you moved out of, we'll need your guidance to go through each room and determine where you want your furniture and boxes placed. We'll continue to protect doorjambs, floors, and banisters.
We'll bring your belongings into the new home and place them in the designated rooms with your direction. Some furniture may be unpadded on the spot, while others may remain padded until the end to protect them during unloading. Unpadded items will have their pads folded and brought back to the truck as needed.
We'll transport your moving boxes to the rooms where you want them to go. Properly labeled boxes make the process much smoother, so make sure they are labeled correctly. We can also take boxes to specific rooms of your choice for your convenience.
Once beds and other items requiring assembly are placed in the home, our crew members will handle the assembly and final placement. Your new house will start to feel like your home.

Final walkthrough, truck inspection and payment

Final walkthrough, truck inspection and payment

After the truck is completely unloaded, we'll go through your home again with you to ensure all items are properly placed. If you need furniture moved within rooms or minor adjustments, we're here to help. After the walkthrough, you can check the inside of the truck to ensure it's empty and all your belongings have been safely moved into your new home.
Congratulations on successfully moving into your new home! We'll present you with your moving paperwork, time-stamped with your signature. At this time, we'll also provide the bill, which can be paid in cash, credit card, or check. If you prefer to save more, we offer a discount for clients who pay in cash.

Great movers!! We’ve hired them twice to move locally and they did a great job both times. They’re fast and efficient, even with multiple flights of stairs and in ridiculous July heat. Also one of the more affordable movers in the area. Definitely recommend!

We used Smart Penny Moving for a local move and the company has been clear and communicative throughout from giving the initial quote, locking in the dates, calling ahead of the moving day, through moving day itself. Their movers have been professional and efficient and I would recommend them.
