Frequently Asked Questions

How do I schedule a move?

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!
