Terms and Conditions

1+MOVERS is here to help you! That’s why with little time and much to plan, 1+MOVERS is at your service through your entire moving journey. The terms and conditions below are guidelines that will ensure your household goods and property are relocated efficiently and safely. Our number one priority is to deliver excellent service and full satisfaction of your needs and requests.

Moving Terms And Conditions

Moving Terms and Conditions

A successful move consists of an organized plan and a custom strategy fit for the needs of your particular moves’ requirements. Therefore, proper planning will reduce the pains and worries throughout your move and help lower the probability of surprise. Give yourself 90-120 days in which you plan and organize your move. You can also follow the guided plan that we have included below these terms and conditions. Remember, more organization = less worry. It is our recommendation you call your 1+MOVERS agent 30-60 days before your moving day.

1+MOVERS is always here to help. So, call us for any same-day moving needs and we will take care of you. All moving terms and conditions, and guideline details disclosed apply so we can offer the highest level of service and quality control. Your satisfaction is our priority.

Moving with Children

Moving Terms and Conditions

Yes, a move can be challenging for the little ones. It helps ease the transition and keep a low-stress level to include them in your plans. 

  1. Get them involved by packing a portion of their things to move.
  2. Talk to them about all the great opportunities moving brings.
  3. Get them to open up about any concerns.
  4. Remember this is a great time to strengthen family bonds.
  5. Highlight and build up all positive and favorable things in the new environment.

It is best to plan for children not to be home on moving day. Often this increases anxiety. Hence, it is much easier for them to spend that time with a friend or a family member, away from the moving scene. Also, this helps keep the work area safe and clear of extra bodies. A smooth transition into their new environment should help them adapt to the community rhythm with ease.

Moving Your Pets

Moving Terms and Conditions

Make prior arrangements to have a pet sitter while moving. Going to the veterinarian for anti-anxiety may be a good idea if they are not used to driving or have a difficult time with unfamiliar places. We love all pets but (if possible) ask your pets not be present for many reasons, including tripping hazards and other dangers. However, the main reason is your pets’ comfort and ease of transition. They deserve it,  for they give us so much love!

Moving Plants

Moving Terms and Conditions

Make arrangements for the moving of plants. Notice, due to laws and procedures we must follow we are unable to assume responsibility for damages during the moving of plants. It is best to move them prior to your moving days. Nonetheless, exceptions are made when you release responsibility.

Delicate and Extremely Heavy Items

Moving Terms and Conditions

If you have an item that is considered delicate, like an antique, let your booking agent know so we can asses whether the piece or pieces should be prepared prior to your moving day. If they require the extra wrapping, packing, or disassembly, it is best to prepare them beforehand.
Life is happening and 1PlusMovers.com knows all about it. So, if your plan changes and at the last moment there is a piece that is too delicate, of extreme weight, or in poor structural condition, your movers will do their best to take care of your needs.

Transferring/Establishing Utilities

Moving Terms and Conditions

Transferring your utilities is a must. If you are short on time there are online services that help you transfer all your utilities. Fortunately, these services help you save time and pay more attention to taking care of all the other endless things.

Stairs and Elevators

Moving Terms and Conditions

When stairs and elevators are involved it is best to keep your boxes at a reasonable weight. Remember, you are human and multiple boxes, up multiple steps, are challenging even to the best of athletes. Excessive weight becomes extra hazardous when stairs are involved. So, let your movers handle these items as they are professionals and experienced lifters. Don’t be mistaken. Even if you are the best performer at the gym, moving is a league of its own. 1+MOVERS has been practicing for a long time and are here to push the limits of human ability to get your things safe and sound to their new home and during transport. They know how to take care of your things and take special care of those special items.

Packing Materials Guide:

Moving Terms and Conditions

Proper packing is a key part of reducing damage. Therefore, there is a specific way to pack things for a successful move.
