FAQs

Some of our most frequently asked questions

How do I schedule a move?

Once you have decided to move with Trend Moving & Storage your moving consultant will collect a down payment to lock your place on our calendar. When a down payment has been secured, you will receive a confirmation email. Now that you are officially on the schedule, you will receive a call from your moving consultant the day before your move to ensure everything is still on schedule and ready to go. If you have any questions between booking day and moving day please feel free to call your consultant with any questions, we are here to help!

When do I pay for services?

Payment is collected on the same day after the completion of your move. If your move is a multi-day move, you will be responsible to pay your bill upon completion of the last day of your move.

How do I pay for services?

We accept Cash, Check, Certified Check, and Credit/Debit Card. There will be a 3% processing fee associated with all card use.

What happens on moving day?

On moving day, your moving crew leader will call you to give you an ETA at your first location. When the crew arrives, they will park the truck and begin a walk-through of your property to assess the best and most efficient way to move your belongings. If you have any questions during the move, please ask your designated crew leader and they should be able to help. If they do not have an answer, they will call our offices to get you the information you’ve requested.  You can now sit back and relax while our team completes your move.
