Your Crew Arrives

  • When we arrive, introductions will be made and we will ask and answer some questions.

    • Safe parking of the truck.
    • Disassemble of all furniture needed to complete the move.
    • Individually tagging each and every item coming, and logging them on the bill of lading.
    • Blankets will be applied to all wooden, metal, and plastic furniture.

    • Packing: If desired, our staff will professionally pack your items, accepting liability for the goods that we pack.
    • Answer any questions you have regarding your move, or interstate moving in general.

Loading

  • Your items are quickly and carefully removed from your home.
  • Stocking: Each item is expertly positioned in the truck in a pre-determined loading sequence. Our truck are guaranteed to be clean and sanitized.
  • Padding: It is Best Price policy that each furniture item be covered on all exposed sides with protective padding. We use the heaviest moving blankets available.
  • Walk through: We walk through the house to make sure we did not leave anything behind and to confirm that all the items you are looking to move have been professionally loaded onto our moving truck.

Transit

  • Our professionally trained drivers carefully drive to your new location. Did you know, most damage arises during transit from the turbulence of the road? Note: all Best Price trucks have “air ride suspension” which is the softest suspension a truck can have.
  • Professional navigation software guarantees that our crews travel the most direct route to arrive promptly at your destination

Unloading

  • The crew quickly tours your new residence; taking notes where and how your items will be placed. The truck is then carefully unloaded.
  • After all items are unloaded, the crew members will walk through the home and re-arrange everything exactly where you want them.

Closure of the Move

  • We will ask you to fill out a report card on how we did. Note: The higher scores you give our Best Price, the more raises and bonuses they can receive. We will provide you with a copy of your shipment weight and collect the final balance.

After the Move

  • You will receive a phone call from your original Move Coordinator to discuss how the move went. We will also see if we can assist you in anyway depending on what your needs are at that time.
