Frequently Asked Questions

How are local moves priced?

We charge for local moves on an hourly basis, based on the number of men and trucks involved. Packing is charged by the hour as well as the materials involved.

May I leave items in drawers?

In most cases, non-breakable, light weight items can remain in the drawers. We address this by padding the item with a quilted, fabric pad and shrink wrapping the pad to the item. In a few cases of antique, fragile pieces (especially French antiques) or extremely large pieces, they do have to be emptied to be moved safely.

What sequence of events can I expect on moving day?

If we are packing your home and possessions, a specialized crew normally comes a day or more in advance. The first thing a crew supervisor does on the move day is protect the home by placing pads on stair bannisters and by doors, putting runners over the pathway of the floors, and putting cardboard over fragile surfaces such as stone, stair edges. Then, all furniture is pad wrapped in the residence. When you look on a properly loaded truck, the only thing you should see are pads and boxes. We try to load the trucks with boxes first, then furniture. Rugs go on last so that they come off first.

What is the experience level of the crews that do household moves for Classic Design Services?

All of the crew members that enter your home are employees of Classic Design Services. They have been through background checks and drug tested. All of the supervisors have multiple years of experience moving high-end furniture and antiques. Most of the supervisors have been with Classic for 15 to 20 years and have industry experience prior to their hiring here. Each employee is covered under Classic's Worker's Compensation Policy while they are working in your home.

What is your liability for the items you are moving?

This varies based on if the transportation is local or long distance. In most cases the liability for the household goods is very minimal unless additional valuation is declared and paid for with the carrier. This is an important issue to discuss with your customer service representative and your insurance carrier or agent.

What should I do to prepare for a move?

The most important thing you can do to prepare for a move is to have your home as organized as possible. It is important to remove items you do not want to go on the shipment so we do not pack them. You can put post-it-notes on closets and cabinets to identify how you would like the boxes labeled, especially if there items are going into a different room at your new home. If you are packing yourself, label boxes for the room you want them to go when offloaded.

There are certain items we do not transport and certain items we do not cover with liability to transport, it is a good idea to check with your representative regarding these items. Before the packers arrive, it is a good idea to have a suitcase packed with the items you want to find right away after the move. These items include: change of clothes, toiletries, cell phones and chargers, medications, and possibly something to open boxes with at destination.
