  • How do I book a move with Pleasant Moving?
    Booking a move with Pleasant Moving is simple! You can either use our online quote form to get an estimate, fill out our Items inventory form for a more accurate assessment, or call our customer care center directly at 612-221-2050 to speak with one of our representatives. Your assigned move coordinator will guide you through the process and help you select the appropriate moving services.
  • What’s involved in an in-home estimate?
    During an in-home estimate, one of our experienced professionals will visit your residence to assess the size and weight of your belongings. They'll discuss details such as move dates, packing services, and any specific requirements you may have. Afterward, you'll receive a customized written estimate outlining the cost and scope of your move.
  • When will the movers arrive?
    The timing of your move will be arranged in coordination with your assigned moving coordinator. We offer three arrival time slots: in the morning (8 am–9 am), in the afternoon (12pm-1 pm), and in the evening ( 3pm–4 pm). Rest assured, you'll receive a call 30 minutes before our movers arrive at your location. If an early morning arrival time is required, this can be coordinated with your assigned moving coordinator.
  • How is drive time calculated?
    At Pleasant Moving, we only bill for drive time when your items are on the truck. Drive time starts when our movers arrive at your origin location and ends when they complete unloading at the destination. Long distance drive times are calculated when the movers leave our shop and return back to it.
  • What’s the minimum number of hours for movers?
    We do have a minimum charge of 2 hours for all our services, regardless of the duration of the actual job. Any time exceeding the initial 2-hour minimum is billed in 15-minute increments. Importantly, you will only be charged for the exact amount of time used beyond the initial 2-hour threshold, ensuring fair and transparent pricing.
  • Am I protected against loss or damage during transit?
    Yes, we offer valuation coverage options to protect your belongings during transit. Our valuation coverage options vary in cost and coverage level, so be sure to discuss the best option for your needs with your moving coordinator.
  • How many boxes will I need?
    We recommend having more boxes than you think you'll need to ensure a smooth packing process. It is always good to order about 20 percent more of packing material in case you need them. Use our handy chart to estimate the number of boxes required based on the square footage of your home.
  • When should I schedule movers?
    It's best to reach out to us as soon as you know your moving date, especially during peak seasons. We recommend scheduling local moves at least 1-2 weeks in advance and long-distance moves 4-6 weeks ahead to ensure availability.
  • How is the estimate calculated?
    Our moving consultants use proprietary software to calculate estimates based on factors such as weight, distance, and number of items. You'll receive a comprehensive and customized Move Plan tailored to your needs and budget.
  • What payment methods do you accept?
    We accept payments via cash, debit or credit cards for your convenience. In some cases we have taken Venmo, PayPal and CashApp.
  • When will my move be charged?
    For local moves, payment is due upon completion of the job. However, we require a $100 deposit upfront to secure the time slot for you.
  • How is the cost of your service determined?
    At Pleasant Moving, we prioritize fair pricing, ensuring you only pay for the time you use. Unlike many other companies, we commence billing when our movers arrive at your location and conclude it once they've placed the last item in its designated spot. We don't charge for travel time to and from our headquarters, offering you transparent and equitable service.

    No, we do not impose any additional fees beyond the initially agreed-upon price. Your quoted price remains constant throughout the duration of the move, barring any changes in services requested during the process.

    Yes, we do have a minimum requirement of 2 hours for all jobs.
  • What is your cancellation policy?
    You have the flexibility to cancel your booking free of charge up to 48 hours before your scheduled moving time. However, cancellations made within 48 hours of your moving appointment will incur a charge equivalent to 1 hour of the moving cost, as this helps offset schedule disruptions.

  • How will the movers know which items to relocate and which to leave behind?
    Prior to your move, we will provide you with an inventory list containing common appliances and items. You can indicate on this list which items you want to relocate. Additionally, upon our arrival at your location, we encourage you to give us a brief walkthrough, highlighting which items are to be moved. This ensures that our movers have a clear understanding of your relocation needs.

  • What if I haven't finished packing by my scheduled moving day?
    If you find yourself unable to finish packing by your scheduled moving day, please contact us as soon as possible to discuss your situation. We offer two options: you can hire our movers to assist with packing, or we can reschedule your move date. Additional charges may apply for packing services, but there will be no extra charge for rescheduling the move date.
  • Should I assist movers with moving tasks?

  • Do I need to be present at the site during the move?

  • Should I empty the drawers of bedroom furniture such as dressers, nightstands, and chests of drawers?
