  • Being as organized as possible will always minimize the cost of a move.
  • Truck access is very important. The distance the crew has to travel at the load and unload location will affect the duration of the job.
  • Elevators should be reserved because availability during peak moving times and in certain establishments may cause unwanted setbacks.
  • Additional stairs or items not mentioned during the estimate
  • Weather conditions, construction, traffic congestion can affect travel time
  • Packing and cleaning during the day of the move will sometimes slow down the crew’s progress
  • If unable to acquire keys or former tenant/owner not yet vacated
  • Being uncertain of where things are going at the unload location
  • Label boxes ie. Kitchen, Living Room, Bedroom, Bedroom 2
  • Requiring additional set up assistance for appliances, electronics, beds etc

I bought a new fridge, and the delivery people said, "there's no way we can take your huge fridge up the stairs." So I called Hendra Moving and Andrew came out with his tape measure, double checked and said, "yes, we can!" Today, Kelly and Ryan showed up and got the job done in style! Took a bit of maneuvering, but they made it look easy (and I know it really wasn't easy!). Thanks Hendra!
