We are an agent for United Van Lines, America's #1 Family Mover.® Our experience and commitment to quality allow us to offer dependable household moving services both local and long distance that is unsurpassed in the moving industry.

Local Moves are based on an hourly rate depending on the number of crew members needed.

Starting at $95.00 per hour for two men and the truck and all equipment needed, you can save the hassle of finding a rental truck, renting the extra equipment to protect your home and goods and relying on friends and family to help!

Moves within Michigan are regulated. Which mainly means we use a Michigan published tariff for moving costs and we uphold all rules and regulations for Michigan. We will provide you with the information to help you plan an intrastate move and provide you with an estimate of cost.

Interstate Moves, or moves from one state to another, begin with a free onsite estimate and consultation. With a network of our fellow United Van Lines Agent's, we can move you anywhere and provide excellent service along the way. We start by giving you information to help you plan your move from packing your own things, storage options, and transportation timelines. One call and we will get you moving in the right direction!
