A Real Prince Charming!

Hoosier Mover did a phenomenal job in moving my son's apartment contents to a storage area - in a snow storm - in record time - and on a holiday, with very little notice. I was in a bind, and Hoosier Mover came through as a real prince charming to rescue this old lady! Yes, of course, they were careful and professional and all that, but even more importantly to me, they were so very easy to work with - flexible with really open lines of communication. I never had to wonder whether they would come through and be on time - and they did, exactly! They are real professionals, and they sure do know how to efficiently pack and load a storage area. They arranged it so that everything fit in. All of that at a surprisingly low cost - these guys are definitely a best buy!

Professional!

I want to thank you and the crew at Hoosier Mover. They were able to come out within days of my call and moved my commercial treadmill (like 500 pounds of steel) with ease. Professional, easy to work with, and did I mention they were about half the cost I would have paid with the other guys?

Moving Expenses

Why Should I Hire a Professional Mover?

Hiring a professional mover delivers exceptional value on a day that can be otherwise very stressful. Moving can be both emotionally and physically draining, and handling delicate or bulky items with care requires specific moving skills. We highly recommend turning to professionals for this, as you would for many of your households needs such as plumbing and electricity.

With years of experience as a  local moving and long distance moving company,we can tackle moves of any size or complexity. We treat every move with the personal care that you would expect from friends and family. However, unlike friends and family, we guarantee satisfaction.

Is Moving Labor the Only Expense I Should Expect?

Moving labor represents the majority of the moving expense. However, you should also budget for packing supplies, such as moving boxes and tape, and for additional valuation (moving insurance) as needed. Hoosier Mover takes special precautions with delicate or oversized items, such as flat screen televisions and chandeliers. These items often require a custom wooden crate, which will incur an additional fee.

How Accurate Will the Moving Estimate Be?

With years of experience, our sales team prides themselves on providing the most accurate moving estimates in the industry. Our sales system ensures that we work closely with every customer to fully understand his/her moving needs and to provide a moving estimate that reflects those needs. Be sure to offer as much information as possible at the time of the estimate – this includes reviewing the inventory for accuracy. Neglecting to mention additional items, or difficult areas of access, at the time of the moving estimate almost always results in unexpected costs for the customer.

Should I Tip My Movers?
As with other service industries, you may wish to thank your movers for a job well done by offering a gratuity. While the movers do not expect a set tip amount, we suggest a tip based on your satisfaction with your crew and the overall move, with a broad guideline of $4-6 per man, per hour. If you feel that your movers went above and beyond in their efforts, you may want to increase the amount accordingly.

Preparing To Move

How Far In Advance Should I Schedule My Move?

We recommend scheduling your move as far in advance as you can. The farther out you can plan your move, the greater the availability you will have in choosing a date and time that is convenient for you. Though the earlier the better is certainly best, we realize advance planning is not always possible; we do ask, if at all possible, for a minimum of four days before the move.

What day of the week/date is best for a move?
Because complex events, such as a home closure or completion of construction, can be delayed due to unforeseen circumstances, we don’t recommend scheduling your move for the same day. Save yourself the stress of rescheduling and plan your move date for several days after your closing date.

Demand for moving services is generally at its lowest during the middle of the month and, in particular, the middle of the week. If your schedule allows for a move on one of these days, movers often offer their most competitive rates during those times.

I want to do some packing and moving before the movers arrive. What areas would be most helpful?

Focus on packing, instead of moving. Smaller items and moving boxes can be moved very quickly by professional movers. Don’t spend time trying to move these items yourself. Rather, focus on packing boxes, so when the movers arrive, you are 100% ready.

What can I do to ensure that my belongings end up in the correct room during the move?

Choose a simple labeling system (i.e. MBR for Master Bedroom) and make sure that all of your boxes are clearly marked. Boxes should be labeled on the top and 3 sides. Your movers will work closely with you at the destination to make sure everything ends up where you want it.

Can I leave clothing in my dresser drawers when I move?
It is generally fine to leave your clothing in your dresser drawers during the move. Be sure to remove anything from the drawers than may roll around or shift during transport, as this can cause damage. If the dresser is particularly large (a triple dresser or part of a large armoire), it is best to at least partially empty it.
What do I need to do to prepare my appliances for the move?

You should make certain that your dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, washing machine, and dryer are empty. Additionally, movers are not trained electricians or plumbers – you need to arrange for the appropriate professional to disconnect your washer, lighting/chandeliers, and refrigerator from any electric and/or water connection. Most importantly, movers are not licensed to disconnect gas, which power many dryers and ovens.

Are there any items that you can not move?

Hoosier Mover will not move hazardous or combustible items such as propane tanks, paint, and aerosols, as the temperature in the truck could cause these items to explode or ignite.

Moving Day

How will the movers know what items to take and what to leave behind?

When the movers first arrive, they will do a walk through of your current home, confirming which items are going and which are not.

What if I haven’t finished packing by my scheduled moving day?

If your moving day is rapidly approaching and it becomes clear that you will not be fully packed, it is critical that you inform your move coordinator as soon as possible. He/she can work with you to make the best possible “plan b” for packing. This may mean having the movers finish your packing or, if you have the flexibility and we have the availability, pushing back your moving day in order to allow more time to pack. If you have only a small quantity of items left to pack, your movers can often complete this on moving day; however, it is important to understand that this will add time to the job and, therefore, add to the total cost of the move.

Can the movers arrange the furniture to my liking in my new home?

Absolutely. When we deliver your items to your new home the movers will work closely with you to make sure all furniture and boxes arrive in the correct rooms, and we are happy to arrange and rearrange the furniture exactly as you would like it.

I have a few prized possessions that I need treated with extra care. How can I guarantee this?

For your own peace of mind, you may want to consider moving jewelry and other small valuables yourself in your personal vehicle. As for larger items – such as art, antiques, musical instruments, special collections, or other items of great personal meaning and value – point these items out to your movers at the start of moving day so that they can take the necessary steps to ensure for their proper care.

Can I keep moving expenses down by having a family member or friend help on moving day?

On moving day, you should let the professional movers handle the job entirely – they are highly trained and the best suited to carry the weight and negotiate the loading of the truck. Generally speaking, having non-professionals work alongside the professional movers slows things down and costs you more in the long run. Your friends and family can be most helpful in preparing for the move – packing moving boxes or caring for your pets or children.

Can the movers transport my pets?

Unfortunately, there is no safe place in the moving truck for pets to ride. They can not be transported in the cab of the moving truck for liability reasons and the back of the moving truck is inappropriate due to lack of climate control and the danger posed by potential shifting of heavy objects.

Can the movers dispose of trash on moving day?

No. We are not equipped to dispose of trash. However, if you wish to have something transported to a waste disposal location, we are able to transport it at the hourly rate plus any fee imposed by the disposal facility. If possible, talk to your move coordinator prior to moving day to make these arrangements.

Can my movers clean my home on moving day?

While professional moving companies may vary, at Hoosier Mover we clean up any clutter we make during the moving process, but we do not do general house cleaning. We recommend asking your friends, family, and neighbors for a referral for this type of service.

Is it possible to move during inclement weather?

Yes. Our professional movers and moving trucks are prepared to move during rain, sleet, or snow. They come equipped with supplies to keep your belongings safe from the elements. However, in order to keep costs down, we recommend that you shovel, rake, or otherwise clear the access ways in preparation for their arrival.
