How do you protect the furniture in the move?
Our crews will wrap furniture such as tables, chairs, desks, or dressers with our moving pads, shrink wrap and tape. This will protect the furniture and walls during the move.

Can you pack our home and/or office?

Do you move outdoor equipment or heavy items?
We move gun safes, pool tables, pianos, golf carts, cars and trucks, playground equipment, gazebos, and more!

Do you have a delivery service?

Do you offer storage?
We have two storage warehouses. Our largest warehouse is located in North Charleston, and we have another warehouse in Myrtle Beach. We offer climate controlled storage in a secure environment with storage vaults. The vaults are made out of oak wood, and they protect your items from dust or dirt. They also keep your items separate from other storage client’s goods.

Can you move us across the country?
We move residences and businesses wherever you may need to go. We have moved clients all over the United States as well as international destinations such as South Korea, England, Holland, and Hungary.

Is there a "transportation" charge?
No. The transportation is included in the hourly rate. If you require additional trucking more than the 24 ft moving truck, additional charges may apply. Most homes can be moved with one truck.
