Helpful Tips for Your Local Move

Moving yourself vs. choosing a professional mover

  • How will your back feel after a day of moving furniture? Why risk injuring yourself or your friends or family. As your residential movers, we take care of the heavy lifting, literally. We know how to move large items safely. Let us lighten your load.
  • What is your time worth? Professional movers can pack your entire residence in two days or less.
  • Do you have fragile items that need special care? Our experienced packers and movers know how to keep your belongings safe throughout the moving process. We also offer comprehensive protection plans that cover the cost to repair or replace, whichever is less, any household item that is properly documented as lost, damaged, or destroyed.

Money saving tips for local moving

  • Since local residential moves are priced by the hour, you can save money by moving the small items yourself.
  • Pack what you can. The more household items you pack yourself, the more you save. Wondering what should be boxed up? Here are some tips:
    • If it's the size of a microwave or smaller, it goes in a box.
    • Glass tabletops, paintings, mirrors, all go in boxes.
    • Table lamps? You got it! Put them in boxes.
  • Boxes, boxes everywhere? Save even more money by putting all your boxes on the first floor or in the garage. You would be surprised at how much time and money this saves.

Helpful Tips For Your Long Distance Move

Safe Travels For Your Belongings & Peace of Mind For You

  • Preparing for the Long-Haul: When moving long distance, it is especially important to pack your belongings carefully. One option is to have your Allied Van Lines agent pack for you. At Piepho Moving & Storage, our long distance movers have years of experience wrapping, padding, and packing so that your household goods are well-protected for the long trip.
  • Moving Protection: While we have an outstanding record of moving belongings safely, we suggest purchasing coverage for your move. As an Allied Van Lines agent, we make it easy and cost-effective to get protected. Once you're covered, any damaged items will be repaired or replaced hassle-free.
  • Online Shipment Tracking: You can gain additional peace of mind knowing where your moving truck is at any time during your long distance move. Simply log onto the Allied.com website and use your order number to track where your belongings are as they're moved anywhere in the United States.

Money Saving Tips for Long Distance Moving

  • Weight Conscious: When considering your residential long distance moving strategy, remember that these moves are priced by weight. So, if you have old and heavy items that you've been thinking about replacing, it may be cost effective to leave them behind. Leaving behind your old washer and dryer could save hundreds of dollars.
  • What To Pack: You can choose to pack yourself, have us pack for you, or both. You can pack smaller items that don't break and leave the fragile items to your Allied Van Lines agent. This can save you money while also protecting your belongings. Items you might consider packing yourself:
    • Pots and pans
    • Books
    • Clothes, sheets, towels
  • Insider Tips: If you have the option to choose the time of year for your move, you'll find that pricing is often better for long distance residential moving in the winter. Or, if you have flexible moving dates, you may find that you can save some money.

"We couldn’t have asked for anything better!"

I am writing this on my mother's behalf. My mom is 86 and the move from Minnesota to Michigan was a huge undertaking for her. Carly was fabulous. She was polite, competent and very helpful. The driver and the crew were equally great. They treated my mom with respect and thought of her needs during the actual move. They saved a chair for her while the rest of her belongings were moved onto the truck. They were extremely polite, courteous, and respectful. We couldn’t have asked for anything better! This crew showed your company proud. I would recommend them to anyone at any time. Thank you for helping this move go so smoothly. Thank you for making this transition so easy for my mom.

Warm regards and highest respect, GM
