Frequently Asked Questions

1. Can movers move in the rain?

If the weather is not on your side on the day of your move, don’t fret. Your movers are specifically trained to provide you with an impeccable moving service even with a little bit of rain in the way. Your movers will most likely bring additional wrapping materials to protect your items additionally, so they don’t get wet or damaged during the process of loading and unloading. This is why it is vital to hire competent movers that know how to handle even the trickiest of moving situations.

2. Will movers take my bed apart?

Your professional movers will most likely provide you with the service of disassembly and reassembly of your furniture at no additional cost, and on top of that, they will bring their own tools and equipment to do so. This means that your movers will disassemble your bedroom set, and other heavy furniture that is easier to handle in parts. They will also reassemble your furniture in your new home, which will ultimately save you a lot of time and effort during the process as well.

3. Will movers move IKEA furniture?

Your movers will move IKEA furniture with no problem at all, however, they will most likely advise you to disassemble your IKEA pieces before they arrive. The reason behind this is that IKEA furniture is extremely difficult to both disassemble and reassemble, which will also result in your move taking longer than it needs to. Another reason for this is that IKEA furniture is made to survive up to approximately two relocations, which makes it much more delicate than any other furniture you might own.

4. What happens if movers damage my items?

If you have hired a professional moving company that is reliable, licensed and insured, there is no need to worry if they will compensate for any damage that might occur during your relocation. The interest of your movers is to provide you with a pleasant moving experience with no damage or loss of your items, so you can rest assured that they will take the extra steps to provide you with exactly this. However, accidents do happen, and if anything unpleasant does come to happen during your relocation, your moving company will compensate for the damage.

5. Are movers usually late?

The professional moving company you have hired for your relocation will provide you with a certain time for your move to take place in – and if they are reliable, they will do everything in their power to get there on time, every time. It is also important for the reputation of your movers to always respect their clients’ time and schedule. Keep in mind that your movers also have a schedule to follow, so the chances that they will be late are low, when moving with reliable movers.

6. Can movers move one piece of furniture?

Most moving companies wouldn’t have an issue with moving one or a couple pieces of furniture on your behalf, however, keep in mind that most local moving companies do have a minimum charge regardless of the number of items or time that it took for the move to be completed. You can always call your movers and ask them about their process in this situation, which might be your best option.

7. When should I tip my movers?

Tipping your movers is not mandatory when moving with Upland Movers, as we believe that our clients should tip our movers if they wish to do so, and based on how well they did their job. It is always nice to commend your movers for a job well done, and when doing so, you are free to tip them as much as you would like. You can tip your movers when the move is completed, and the payment for your relocation is collected.

8. How many movers do I need?

Your relocation is a unique situation, you might have a tight living space with more items than anyone could imagine, or a large home with only a few pieces of furniture. Since this is individual, it is best to give your moving company a complete list of items that you are relocating, or a general idea of your move size, and they will recommend the appropriate number of movers for your relocation.

9. When should I hire movers?

Hiring your movers should take place as soon as you have a date in mind. Even then, it is best to reserve your movers at least three or four weeks in advance, to ensure that they have an open spot for your move to take place. Give your movers a call once you’ve found the local moving company that best fits your moving needs and gathered an exact date.

10. Why hire professional movers?

Hiring professional movers simply means that you won’t have to go through the hassle of relocating everything you own by yourself. Moving is probably no one’s favorite activity in the world, and when it comes to packing and heavy lifting, most people would rather not deal with any of this. Hiring professional movers will enable you to sit back and enjoy your relocation, rather than stressing out and going insane during the entire process. Finding reliable movers to handle your relocation can make the world of a difference, and leave you content and relaxed when settling into your new living space.
