Answers to Moving FAQs

Courtesy of Your Trusted Professional Movers in Modesto

While exciting, moving can also be stressful, especially as your moving date gets nearer and nearer. If you are still unsure where or how to start, let Pete’s Moving Services help you. To get you started, our professional movers have gathered the most common questions we hear from clients throughout Stanislaus County and the surrounding areas about moving in general and our company. We hope that you find our answers helpful, especially if this is your first time moving.

If you have other questions, please feel free to reach us at (209) 442-4949. A member of our team will be more than happy to enlighten you.

When is the best time to move?

If you have children, the best time to move time to move is between the months of May to September. Moving during late spring or summer break allows your child to adjust better in their new surroundings before school starts again. Additionally, since several people are moving at these time, there are more housing options on the market, giving you and your family better options for a new home. Just make sure to start looking for professional movers as soon as you sign your lease or close escrow as this period is also when moving companies are more in demand.

When should I start contacting moving companies?

At Pete’s Moving Services, we always tell our clients to book as early as they can. Getting this done in advance can help lessen the stress of moving and let you focus more on other important things like packing. Postpone booking a moving service for long and you might end up with shady moving companies that are more expensive but less efficient.

Do I need to do anything before the movers arrive?

Our professional movers are ready to help make your move as seamless as possible. However, there are also some things that you can do before we arrive to ensure a stress-free move.

These include:

  • Labeling your boxes properly, especially those containing fragile items
  • Making sure to have an inventory of all your boxes and furniture for easy tracking
  • Disassembling or removing the legs of your furniture if you can
  • Informing us early about where we can park our trucks, the elevators or stairs we can use, or how we can access your home in case you live in a gated community

Can you help move delicate items?

Pete’s Moving Services takes pride in our ability to transport any items safely and efficiently. Whether you are planning to move a piano and other delicate musical instruments, valuable paintings, or glass furniture, we have the necessary materials and expertise to keep them protected. Our movers will always make sure that all fragile and delicate items will reach your new home in the same condition as you left them with us.

Do you offer free quotes?

Yes. Pete’s Moving Services offers a free, no-obligation quote to all our customers. Most of the time, the quote we give is the price you pay upon completion of the service. In situations where additional fees apply, we tell you right away to avoid any misunderstanding.
