Frequently Asked Questions


Whats your #1 packing tip?

We suggest you find out the value of the item before you pack it.


Whats the strangest thing you've ever had to move?

The most interesting moving experience for our company was moving a glass table with the following dimensions: 12’ x 7’ by 6”. This table was located on the 24th floor of a condominium complex in downtown New York. The piece of glass was supported by two golden eagles. The difficulty arose when we started talking about the logistics to actually remove the table from the room. Apparently the table had been purchased and installed prior to a complete renovation of the condominium. The table could not be moved out of the apartment either via the doors, or the dining room windows. It was just too large. The only plan available to us was to have the glass top scored by a glass technician and literally taken out in pieces. The technician scored the table into six equal pieces and literally snapped the cut. Because the pieces were so thick the process was very dangerous and very loud. The sound of the breaks was deafening and incredible to watch. These pieces of glass along with the golden eagles were then removed from the condominium via the windows ( too big for the elevator ) and a local drayage company swung them out twenty four floors. All in all the process was successful.
