Mobile: (406) 499-2155

How can I know the exact box count if I have not packed yet?

A very good estimate needs to be figured with a room by room guesstimate. An updated box count can be called in as move day approaches.

Are my household items covered by insurance?

Yes, the Upper Columbia Conference has insurance for damages on move day as well as in transit.

What if something is damaged during the move?

Make good documentation of it, including pictures and contact us within 10 days after your unload.

What happens during the move?

When the moving day arrives, the van operator will go through your home to review what will be moved. Be sure to alert the van operator to any special concerns you have. You will also have to make arrangements for delivery, including an accurate address and contact numbers at destination. At destination you or your representative will need to be present to answer questions and direct placement of furniture and cartons into the right locations.

Do I need to empty all dresser drawers, file cabinets, etc.?

If you have books or other heavy items, it would be a good idea to pack them in boxes. Bigger dressers are easier to move with empty drawers. A good rule of thumb is: If you can't lift one end by yourself, it may be too heavy to be moved without empty drawers.

Will you move automobiles?

Yes, if there is space available it is covered by the Upper Columbia Conference insurance while in the moving van.
