Moving Terminology

Let’s make sure we’re on the same page. This moving terminology guide explains the terms that we use.

Packing – Using the latest industry packing methods and moving materials, our experts will pack your entire home in detail. Each mover is trained to pack your home with the utmost professionalism and respect for your belongings.

Loading – Prior to loading your furniture and belongings, Allied takes the time to make sure that each item is properly packed, listed for inventory and labeled for moving. For upholstered furniture, we use a durable, plastic Stretch wrap to guard against potential damage from dirt and scratches. For other items, we use special packing to protect against shifting. Once prepped, your personal contents are systematically loaded onto our moving trucks where they will be transported to their new location.

Delivery Window – The distance and weight of your shipment will be factors that are used to determine your delivery window. Please pick a window of dates that work with your schedule as you will need to be available to take delivery any day within the window. The driver will call you 24 hours before they arrive at your new home; please make sure you have the keys to your new home the day before your delivery window begins, and do not schedule any activities on delivery day.

Unloading – At delivery we take inventory during the unloading process to ensure that each item is counted for. With your guidance and instruction, our trained movers will carefully place all of your boxes and furniture into each room, and we will provide re-assembly services of any items dissembled at loading.

Debris Removal – You are approved a box and paper pick up that must be completed within 30 days of delivery, we ask that the boxes stay dry and you can breakdown the smaller boxes and use the larger ones for paper and tape; please be aware we cannot take any trash.

Unpacking – Once delivery and set up has been completed you are approved unpacking – that is the removing of items from boxes and placing them on a flat surface. The crew will not place items in cupboards, closets or drawers. If you would prefer to take your time and unpack yourself you are approved a box and paper pick up that must be completed within 30 days of delivery, we ask that the boxes stay dry and you can breakdown the smaller boxes and use the larger ones for paper and tape; please be aware we cannot take any trash.

Automobile Moving – Automobiles cannot have any personal items in them and they must have less than 1/4 tank of gas in order to ship. You will do an inspection of the car before it is loaded and then again at time of delivery to ensure the condition is the same.

Professional, flexible, accommodating and friendly!
I can't thank the Rose team enough for their support installing and removing an enormous event installation. The team worked for days, at all hours of the day, to help complete a large scale, time sensitive project. From the back office, to the onsite leadership and their team of movers, everyone was a pleasure to work with. They did a quality job with smiles on their faces. I couldn't recommend a group of movers any more! A job well done!

Rose Moving was excellent, start to finish! Jim was so easy to work with and assured us every step of the way. The moving staff were all very professional, arrived on time and worked amazingly quick and efficient! The move went perfect! What a pleasure to work with Jim and Team! We'd highly recommend Rose Moving.

The experience with Rose Movers from the quote, to you with all your help and logistical planning, and to the movers, was easy with no hitches at all. I would recommend you all to anyone planning a move.

They showed up on time for the packing and delivery. Everything arrived in excellent condition. The furniture was placed exactly where we wanted, as were the boxes to be unpacked by us. Beverly was wonderful about keeping us informed. Dave and his helpers did a fantastic job.

We have traveled to many continents before retirement and this crew is the best. They are presently loading the first container to Europe. Very professional, prompt and considerate. Compelled to recommend even while in process.

We have used Rose Moving twice now. Both experiences were great. Jim was friendly and helpful in quoting the jobs and always answered any questions promptly. The movers handling the jobs were all professional and courteous and they took great care with all of our property. I would definitely recommend Rose Moving!

Sara D.

Our move experience was great! The crew who loaded our stuff to put into storage was extremely professional. The team lead even saw the stress in my face and put me at ease by saying, "Don't worry, this is easy! It'll be great!" That really helped! The crew who unloaded our stuff was top notch as well. Jim and Beverly were both very responsive and great to work with. I definitely recommend Rose!

Sheevani

From start to finish Rose Moving handled it all. What could have been a very stressful move could not have gone smoother. All of our belongings arrived in perfect shape. The movers at both homes were very professional and made sure they placed the furniture exactly where you wanted it.

We were very pleased with Rose handling our move. Our treasures spent 10 months in their warehouse waiting for our new house to be ready and they all arrived safe and sound. Beverly and Jim were wonderful to work with. I thought the crew that moved us out was wonderful...but the crew that moved us in was even better. If we were to do this again, we would definitely use Rose, they are the best!
