What Movers Expect from you on Moving Day

Moving Time? Here’s what’s expected of you by the Movers!

Getting prepared for your move is incredibly challenging- employing the services of a professional moving company is a huge step in the right direction. Although professional movers will undoubtedly take a ton of stress off your shoulders, there are a few things to be aware of to ensure the process runs smoothly. Every mover handles the process a bit differently- here’s what to expect when working with the team at SETT Movers.

#1: Time Frames/ Deadlines

After being in the moving industry for over 10 years, we understand that dates and times get switched up without notice and it is completely beyond the customer’s control. When/if this happens to you, we will do our absolute best to work with you. We just ask that you inform us of any changes to your move as soon as you hear about them. This will give us as much time as possible to accommodate your needs. 

Before calling to find out about your move, it is recommended that you have an idea of both your closing date and when you would like to move. Our schedule can fill up fast, especially in the summer months. We operate on a first come- first served basis, so make sure you call us as soon as you find out these dates!

#2: Payment Terms

SETT Movers charges our customers one of two ways. If your move is local (150 air miles radius or less from Bayville, NJ) we will charge you an hourly rate. This will be determined by our estimator once she has taken inventory of all of your belongings. Your preparedness is key when dealing with this option and will certainly reflect on your final bill. The second way we charge for a move is a binding rate. This is most frequently done when doing an out-of-state move. 

 We prefer cash but also accept money orders, certified checks, or credit cards. However, we do charge an additional fee when paying with a credit card. It is best to establish a payment method and terms with your mover prior to your move.

#3: Preparing Locations for Unpacking in New Home

One great tip that seems to be a favorite among past customers is putting anything you will need for the night of your move in a suitcase. Some items you should put in your suitcase are bedsheets, pajamas, pet needs, toothbrushes. Having these items in something you can easily recognize can help you avoid sifting through a heap of boxes at the end of your move day. Another thing you should also be sure to do when unpacking (especially in the kitchen) is bringing your boxes up to a counter or a chair so that you are not bending down to your box. 

When we do your packing for you, we use a large sum of unprinted paper. Please be sure to unwrap every piece of paper you see as to not accidentally throw something away. Another thing we do when disassembling your furniture is shrink wrapping any and all hardware (such as screws, or nuts and bolts) onto the piece itself. It may not present itself very obviously, but please make sure you fully inspect your piece before discarding the shrink wrap.

#4: What Movers Should Expect at New House

We really appreciate it when our customers give us a heads up about anything that could impede our day. These things could include limited parking, access issues, or a long walk. While none of these things will necessarily make or break your move, they are certainly vital for our estimator to be aware of so she can be as accurate as possible. 

Apartment moving is very unique, therefore we are going to need some extra information about your building. We will need to know if there is a loading dock in your building or if we will be required to park on the street. We will also need to know what floor you’re located on and if there is an elevator or if it is a walk-up. It is in everyone’s best interest (yours and the movers) that we fully understand the walk from the truck to the elevator (or stairs), and from them to your apartment. Another major detail we require clear information on is your building’s specific Certificate of Insurance (COI). Lastly, we will want to know if hoisting is a necessity for any of your pieces of furniture. This will help us ensure that we are prepared to perform this task. 

#5: Packing

Although we are a full-service moving company and do offer packing services, it is not always the most cost-effective way to go about your move. If you are packing yourself, we ask that you pack no liquids. If you MUST pack them, please keep them in an open box so we can clearly identify that as the liquids box. If you are being moved into a storage unit, we strongly advise against packing any boxed food items. 

It is also important that you use the right box for the items you are packing. For example, when packing heavy things (such as books, records, pots, etc.) we strongly prefer that you use a small box, even if it means using multiple.

#6: Identifying Items that Require Special Care

Everyone has those special items they hold close to their hearts. We want to make sure we do everything in our power to ensure their well-being, as well as yours. We suggest writing “FRAGILE” or “HANDLE WITH CARE” on your box, in very large and obvious letters. If what is inside your box needs to be upright at all times, please label your box with arrows pointing up so we do not make the mistake of putting something on its side that shouldn’t be. 

Another piece of advice would be to take your valuable items, such as jewelry, and put them safely in your car. This eliminates any panic about missing your most prized possessions.

From the moment I called Tara I knew Sett Movers would be helpful in my move. She gave me a clear concise quote and set my mind at ease. John, Nick(Castro),Austin and Brian were fantastic !!! They were there on time, friendly and very careful with my furniture and my floors. Such an excellent job I’m so happy. They totally exceeded my expectations.

This is one of the best companies I've ever dealt with. Tara was amazing. I had a short notice container load to do in front of my house. Their crew Glenn & Rich were pleasant, polite and accommodating. They made sure nothing was damaged. They did everything right. I definitely recommend this company to anyone who wants a stress free move. Thanks!

My company used SETT Movers for our move and we couldn't be more pleased with the service provided. From the start, our communications with Tara were great. We had to reschedule our move a couple times and they were always accommodating. The team that came the day of our move were awesome...on time, professional, extremely hard working and efficient. They made the whole experience less stressful. Thank you!

I was in a serious bind due to the fact that two moving companies had cancelled on me due to double bookings. After calling around to multiple moving companies with no luck SETT Movers was suggested by one of those moving companies I had called. I was told that SETT Movers was a "family owned company and caring". No truer words were ever said. I called SETT Movers and they said not to worry. They would help us move. SETT Movers called us the day before the move confirming everything then called the morning of the move to let us know they were on their way. The movers arrived on time and told us that the job was going to be four hours. They came in at 4 hours on the dot. It was raining hard on the day of our move but the guys moved fast and protected the furniture from the rain. For many reasons the move wasn't an easy one for us but the guys from SETT had such a great attitude that it really helped us get through a tough day. I can't thank SETT Movers enough for what they did for us. Thank you for your humor and your efficiency. If I ever have to move again-my first call will be to SETT Movers. Thank you SETT Movers-you are a life saver!

What a great company! Tara was fantastic she made a short notice move happen. Their crew Glen M, Mitch, Rich, and Jean were top notch. No damage to either of my homes or my wares. They did everything we asked them to do. Cleaned up and explained the total cost. I’m very happy with them and next year when we move to Florida they’re our choice. I definitely recommend this company.

This company was extremely accommodating. We’ve had to change our moving date a couple of times and Tara was very helpful. The moving staff were very caring when handling our furniture and boxes. Out of one home and into the other very quickly. John, Austin, Mitch, Glenn and Castro were amazing, they handled it all very efficiently and made us feel confident that all would be cared for safely.I recommend Sett movers to anyone who is in need, Tara will take good care of you, she’s exceptional.

These guys were exceptional. We were moving a piano and some heavy pieces of granite and they made us feel comfortable every step of the way. Every part of the process with SETT was handled well and professionally and i couldn't more highly recommend them to anyone planning an upcoming move. John, Dave, Mitch, and Castro all were fantastic.

Just had the nicest moving experience with John and Nick from Sett Movers. They helped us pack our car and moved our things to a storage facility and managed to fit everything perfectly with room to spare. Nothing was too difficult for them and they were cheerful, pleasant and courteous throughout the time they worked here!! We would highly recommend them. Tara who was the point person we spoke to was equally as accommodating when booking us for the move. John and Nick are masters at fitting all items together to save space!!

I recently hired Sett Movers to move my furniture about 25 miles. They were on time, very friendly and very careful with my stuff. Tara was a pleasure to deal with, from start to finish. Awesome customer service and very responsive. It kinda feels like its your family or your friends moving your stuff, if that makes any sense. Watching my couch get shrink wrapped was very enjoyable - highly recommend! I will be moving again in about a year and I already know I will be calling Tara again. One less thing to worry about. No reason to call around for quotes. This is your mover.

Really wonderful experience. The gentleman who helped us the Nicks and Glen were not only professional but human and during these crazy times that was truly appreciated. They communicated during the whole process and made us feel comfortable and in control while making it effortless. Our only suggestion would be please do walk throughs prior to sending crews to properly scope the project. I would recommend to anyone in need of movers! Thank you!

Highly recommend this moving company! I contacted a few local companies and Tara was by far the most helpful, friendliest and you could definitely tell she knows her job very well.My girlfriend and I moved to a place together and had this company go to both of our separate apartments and move everything into one. Tara’s estimate was completely spot on and she helped to relieve any anxiety I had about our move. I even needed to change the time last minute and they easily accommodated us.The day of our move we worked with John, Bryce and Rich. All of them were professional and super friendly. They worked efficiently and handled all of our belongings carefully, not even a scratch on anything they moved for us.I’ll definitely be recommending SETT Movers to anyone looking for reliable and affordable movers.

This company was a pleasure to do business with. Tara (owner and hands on) is very involved in making sure everything you need is taken care of for a professional move. We were moving our senior parent from one state to another. She provided the services we needed at a fair price. No surprises and communication is excellent. The movers were very friendly and professional.

Set movers was recommended to me by the storage unit I was using. Being new to the area I was not in the know of local movers and they came highly recommended. I could. It have been more pleased with their services - Tyler, Nick P and Dave W were wonderful. They were on time, efficient and personable and most importantly handle all my items with care as if it was their own. Not only were the movers great , the office staff (Tara) was great as well with communication!Definitely 5 star service!!!

Sett Movers were phenomenal. I had my reservations about any movers considering the trouble I had finding others. Sett movers were extremely professional, and set our minds at ease. The day before the move, they contacted me to let me know that we would have more than the agreed upon number of movers at no extra cost. The day of, they arrived on time, and were efficient and careful with all of our things. They reassured me that things would be moved without a problem despite the potential of a snowstorm looming. They were careful with our new home and made sure our things were in place without any issue. A special thanks to the movers: John, Mitch, Castro, Nick P, Glenn, Dave, Jean. Steve and Tara also provided wonderful assistance from the office and reassured me despite how many times I called to make certain changes. Finally, even after being provided an estimate for the move, Sett Movers ended up charging us a lot less and provided us with a refund. We were extremely thankful for their service and commitment. This is a company worth dealing with. We can never thank them enough for their service. Thank you!-Jim & Paula B.

Sett movers turned a stressful situation into a very easy experience. We were moving from NJ to Florida permanently. Tara was very responsive and reassuring. Her guys were professional and hard working. They wrapped our stuff like it was there own. I couldn’t have been happier. Our things are currently in storage awaiting the completion of our home. I will absolutely call them when it is time to move into our new home. Thanks to the whole team. Lou and Dina

I can't say enough good things about SETT movers. We used them for a cross-country move from NJ to CO. From start to finish Tara and team were professional, courteous, communicative...the list goes on and on. In a very stressful time for us, we didn't have to worry about getting our stuff properly secured and across the country. AND to top it off, they are genuinely nice people, who go above and beyond and support great causes like Move for Hunger and donating blood to save lives. If you are trying to choose a moving company, I promise you will not go wrong in working with SETT.

Thank you for a great first moving experience. Thank you Tara for coming to the house and making it seem so easy and for calling back when you saw I had called.The group of 5 men were friendly, professional, punctual, polite and treated all of my items with respect. They called before and at arrival at my house. They were efficient and quick from my home to the storage units, which by the way were neatly packed. They even carried items to the curb I no longer wanted.This was the first part of my move and hope to have the same 5 man team when the second part happens. Job well done!

Tara and the moving team took excellent care of us from the initial phone call all the way until the trucks pulled out of our new home’s driveway at the end of the day. Everyone was responsive, professional, and took the time to walk us through the process every step of the way which was crucial being our first time using a moving company. Couldn’t recommend them more.

I cannot say enough about SETT Movers and their team that came to our house. The team of John, Castro, Mitch, Dave, Glenn and Nick P were AWESOME! Moving is such a stressful time, culminating on moving day. These 6 guys made the day so much fun and stress free. Just a great group of gentlemen that worked well together, were funny, took great care of our items and we never heard a complaint about how heavy something was nor any fighting over who had to carry what. The whole move was so efficient that it only took 6 hours total! I will be recommending anyone and everyone to use SETT Movers. Tara and everyone were super chill and kept it all calm, with a great price to boot. Ready SETT go call them for your next move!!!!

Had the opportunity work with 10 great guys on a big emotional move for my little family. It was a pleasure to work with them for two days with an overnight hold and I'm looking forward to working with them again! All 10 men couldn't be nicer, more helpful and CALM! John especially, kept this neurotic mom and her assistant cool calm and collected! Thanks again team!

From the time of booking to moving the final piece of furniture, Sett Movers provided outstanding service. Booking was very efficient and pleasant. Tara was outstanding with the booking process and even followed up on thanksgiving to to confirm the moving date! The gentlemen (Mitch, Tyler, Dave and Nick C.) that handled my move were courteous, efficient and handled the move as if they were moving their own possessions. During the day, they were able to manage any of the request we had during the move. I intend to recommend them to any friends who need moving services in the future.

We used SETT Movers for an office move recently. I cannot properly express how professional, positive, efficient and easy to work with they were. Our plans changed more than once during the move and the SETT team took every change in stride. A big high five to Mitch, Glen, Dave, Nick and the rest of the team. This is the company that you want to facilitate your move. Five stars all the way!

I used SETT for a long distance move from NJ to NC. They did a great job. Here are some comments:* They had a good price. Most others were more expensive, and the couple that priced similarly did not lock in the price. If the cubic footage was larger than their estimate, the price would go up. So SETT offered good pricing and lower price risk.* They used a truck plus trailer. Other companies just offered truck only, thus requiring 2 trucks to move us. This flexibility allowed them to lock in the price without driving up their costs (more efficient).* Tara (the second "T" of SETT) was great to deal with on the sales side. Very pleasant and accommodating. Even offered reasonably priced lump disposal services versus piecemeal pricing for disposal (for furniture not coming on the move).* Steve (Tara's husband, and "S" of SETT) was the foreman and packer of the move. He was polite, helpful, and organized. He ran a very customer-focused and accommodating crew. He packed the truck very efficiently and tightly, so that there was little opportunity for boxes and furniture to shift or move during transit. Prior to arrival for both pickup in old home and unload at new home he called to confirm and advise ETA. Everything was clear.* Extras were minimal and related to boxes and tape purchased by me day of move.I would recommend SETT for your moving needs.
