Why Start Moving Is the Best Choice


  • Guaranteed Rates: You’re locked in with us, most other companies give you a rate that fluctuates based on how much weight or space you take.


  • Guaranteed Dates: Unlike competitors, we don’t put other families on the same truck, our trucks are dedicated to your shipment. Putting other families on the same truck causes delays, if one move is delayed all moves are delayed. This also allows us to give you the fastest possible delivery time because we take each move from start to finish and we don’t have to wait for a full truck before we head to your destination.


  • Top Level Movers: You only work with the best movers, uniformed in Start Moving attire and properly trained to complete your move safely. Other companies may use temp labor and van line drivers are responsible for finding their own help so there’s no telling what quality of people they will find. Our dedicated team is with you from start to finish.


  • Moving Trucks: We use box trucks up to 26ft in length. With our trucks we can easily get in and out of hard to reach locations. Other companies may use semi-trucks and often need to charge customers to shuttle furniture from the semi to your door or storage with a smaller truck. Using box trucks also prevents damage because the lower ceiling height means there is less weight on your furniture at the bottom of the load.


  • Reputation: Start Moving has the highest reputation out there, we maintain an A rating on the better business bureau, Angie’s list, and Google. The most important thing you can do when choosing a mover is scour the internet for reviews. This will tell you how a company treats people and handles issues. You’re safe with Start Moving.


  • Furniture Protection: The key to a successful move without damages is in the preparation. Some companies cut corners by using oversize boxes to pack with or loading furniture that isn’t wrapped. Start Moving knows how to keep your items in top condition. We wrap everything inside the home before putting it on the truck and we use the correct size boxes for the job.

Start Moving towards veggies!

Start Moving, it’s a lifestyle! (not just a moving company) We love our clients!

Start Moving

Start Moving towards veggies!

Forget about the statistics and the percentages, our bodies are made up of mostly water, our muscles need water, and the earth is made up of mostly water. We need lots of water, and when we do not get enough bad things happen such as dehydration and chronic inflammation. You must drink lots of water daily and you already know that, but today we are going to take that one step further and try to include water based veggies into at least 2 meals per day so we can reduce inflammation and strengthen our immune systems even further. If you are like me and you would rather eat french fries and green food scares you… GET OVER IT… suck it up and start working these magical necessities into your diet… YOU MUST! Okay that was bold but I am forcing myself to eat more veggies, my health has improved rapidly and my mind is sharp enough to write this blog for you. You can start with green leafy lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumbers because they are some of the veggies with the highest water content.  It takes some getting used to but after a few weeks it becomes a lifestyle and you will never go back to daily french fries.

Top 3 Scariest Moving Horror Stories

Vegas strip unload

The moving industry is ripe with rogue movers and posers that have criminal intentions. Here are 3 of the worst stories published on the web that made the news.

Vegas strip unload

Pictured above: A man’s day took a turn when after loading up his truck on moving day he was served with divorce papers. Frustrated he decided to unload his truck directly onto the Vegas strip in front of everyone. He then resisted arrest and ended up in jail.

rego park couple

This couple above thought they were in store for a normal move. They got a moving quote for $275 before the move began, then once the final bill came the price inflated to $2100 and included many bogus charges such as an elevator charge of $100 per man. The couple bargained the price down to $1800 while the movers attempted to hold their belongings for ransom. The movers were working under several different company names, one of which had a “F” Rating on the BBB.  The couple planned to take the movers to court, however that may just cause the couple even more headaches.

illegal movers

This might just be the worst case scenario, Komo news from Seattle Washington reported on Karl Johnson who was moving from Florida. Long story short, Kyle paid movers nearly $1500 when they loaded up the truck. They ended up stranded for over 6 weeks without their possessions, when the movers arrived they demanded to collect an additional amount of $4192 or they would not release their stuff. When they got the movers to agree to $3000 they soon found out that 50% of the items were stolen or damaged.

Finding a good moving company requires serious investigation to ensure safety. It is good practice to seek out reliable reviews, insurance & license information, and meet personally with representatives of the company you are working with if possible. Usually if a company has treated people badly in the past it won’t be too difficult to find some complaints online. Beware, some companies even hire people to write fake reviews making it even harder to trust information found online.

Moving DIY Dangers, here are 3 things you shouldn’t do on moving day.

Moving your own stuff can be dangerous, here are 3 thing you should not do on moving day.

1) Do not wear flip-flops. You might drop something on your foot, going backwards without them falling off is nearly impossible, and they usually don’t provide much traction for going up a moving truck ramp with heavy items.

2) Don’t rent a large truck that you are not familiar with, without getting the extra insurance coverage. Accidents happen.

3) Don’t lift heavy or large items without help to avoid injuries and damages to property and or furniture.
