International And Overseas Moving To Or From Grand Rapids
While you can move on your own, hiring a professional company is usually worth the price. Movers will help you save a lot of time, especially when you're moving overseas. Instead of driving a truck over a few weeks, you can simply get on a plane or take a mini-vacation until we arrive.
If you’re a senior or have a bad back, then we can lift the furniture for you. We also offer a onetime deal of placing your furniture in its designated spots. However, you must decide before our arrival where you want everything placed, since our staff will only do it once.
