Why should I choose Garrett’s Moving and Storage over all the other movers out there?
Moving companies are not always looked upon highly and with good reason. In this day and age where anyone can put up an ad on Craigslist and call themselves a “mover”, too often we see people end up using moving companies that show no respect for their home or belongings. They damage the home, leave sweat marks on the furniture, and generally leave possessions in worse shape than they found them.

Will my belongings be covered while they are being moved?
Moving companies provide extended coverage plan your items at a rate of $0.60 per pound. This is the industry standard, and required offering by every moving company. We highly recommend considering supplemental insurance for your move. Be sure to discuss this with our representative as they prepare your free estimate.
