We are proud to keep our moving damage claims the lowest in the industry, and we take pride in keeping our clients happy every step of the way.
Can you move on the weekend?
Of course! Weekends are the most popular time to move, so you should try to schedule your move as far in advance as possible to secure your preferred moving date and time.
Can you move at night?
Sometimes we’re able to perform moves at night, but we perform the majority of our moves during daylight hours. If you need us to move you after hours, there may be an additional fee in addition to our standard moving charges. Be sure to contact our friendly, professional moving coordinators at (833) 626-1326 for more information.
Can you provide last-minute moves?
Although we can’t guarantee it, we are often able to come to the rescue of clients who need a mover at the last minute. This can happen for a variety of reasons that are outside of your control, such as delayed home closings, unreliable moving companies, unexpected relocations for a new career, or urgent personal life changes.
We understand how stressful these situations can be and we do our best to accommodate each and every last minute moving request.
Can you move from an apartment on the 5th floor?
We can move you from an apartment or condo on any floor! In most cases the only limitations are the availability of the service elevator, or the property management company rules regarding what hours move-ins and move-outs are permitted. Our teams are willing to go above and beyond to ensure that your move is fast and efficient from the bottom floor to the top!
Can you move during the winter?
We may not be the US Postal Service, but our professionally trained, hard-working movers will move you in rain, sleet, snow, or any other weather conditions. We know how important moving day is to you, and we will do whatever it takes to get your move completed, so long as the conditions are safe for our team of movers.
Can you move to a new home in the same state?
YES! We can move you from your current home to a new home that is in the same state. We offer only the highest quality intrastate moving experience in the industry.
Can you move and store my things until moving day if my new home isn't quite ready yet?
YES! Some of our locations have on-site storage options, and we have a national partnership to offer additional storage solutions for our clients. Of course, your reliable College H.U.N.K.S.® movers will be there to load your storage container so that you can keep both your back and your heart from enduring the stress and risk of strenuous physical labor.
Can you move from state to state?
College H.U.N.K.S. Hauling Junk and Moving® currently offers limited interstate moving options, however, we have partnered with a logistics and trucking company to provide you with a full-service long distance moving experience at a fraction of the cost of national van lines and other national moving companies.
Can you move my family in the moving truck?
We’re pretty sure you’re asking if you can ride in the moving truck with your belongings. If that’s the case, unfortunately, no. As much fun as that may sound, it would not be safe to ride in the moving truck with your belongings. We know what you’re thinking, and our local movers can’t let you ride shotgun either!
Don’t worry though, we will drive carefully and safely to make sure your items arrive on time and in the same condition they were in when we moved them out of your home!
