We are taking extensive precautionary measures including the adoption of all CDC guidelines and the establishment of our own policies intended to minimize health risks for all customers, employees, contractors, vendors, and community stakeholders. We are proud to be able to support the needs of our customers during this crucial time but are prepared to quickly change course as required.

Stay safe together with Peasley Moving & Storage

The COVID-19 crisis is fluid and there are many uncertainties and factors outside of our control that may, with little or no advance notice, impact our delivery of moving & storage services. Please be aware the current crisis could potentially result in small inconveniences such as a delayed project start time or significant inconveniences such as the complete rescheduling of services.

Although there are many unknowns to be navigated, you can be certain that Peasley Moving & Storage will be timely and transparent in our communications regarding servicing your moving & storage needs, and our professional relocation consultants will work diligently to offer creative solutions in the event your project is impacted by the current health crisis.

Steps Peasley Moving & Storage is Taking:

  • Company-wide Implementation of all precautionary measures recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
  • Office staff and moving crews are being monitored daily for symptoms and/or known exposure by management and asked to go home, contact their healthcare provider, and self-quarantine as directed. Staff members that experience symptoms and/or aware of exposure when not at work have been directed to stay home and notify their supervisor.
  • Office staff and moving crews are receiving daily briefings on precautionary measures and have been directed to follow them on and off the job.
  • Office staff and moving crews are being instructed to maintain appropriate “social distance” of 6 feet minimum between one another, customers, and all other people.
  • Office staff and moving crews are being provided with appropriate hand sanitizer and surface disinfecting supplies. They have been directed to disinfect truck cabs and moving equipment between each move to the best of their ability. These supplies will continue to be replenished as we are able, based on availability from retailers.
  • Moving crews will be furnished with work gloves to be worn during the moving process and disinfected both during their work and between customers.
  • Moving crews will be furnished with appropriate masks (when available) to be worn during the moving process as circumstances require.
  • Peasley Moving & Storage is limiting visitation to our branch offices. If you wish to purchase moving boxes or supplies, please simply call in your order and we will happily deliver to your vehicle outside.
  • Peasley Moving & Storage is offering Virtual Estimate Appointments! For more information, please visit our Virtual Estimate Appointment page or ask about this terrific option when speaking with one of our professional relocation consultants.

Steps We’re Asking Customers To Take Prior To Our Arrival At Your Residence:

  • Please notify us immediately if you or any members of your household have been exposed to COVID-19 or are experiencing symptoms including cough, fever, or difficulty breathing.
  • Please use disinfectant/cleaner to wipe down commonly touched surfaces, objects, door handles, etc. at your residence.
  • Please make a sink, hand soap, and paper towels available to your outside salesperson and moving crew for handwashing during their time within your home.
  • Please keep residence and office windows open throughout the moving process as this allows for greater airflow and less potential containment of germs.

We are all in this together.  The team at Peasley Moving & Storage is proud to continue offering our wide range of services in accordance with the necessary precautions outlined above. Whether you or your business will be moving down the street, across the country, or around the world, we are here to make the process seamless & safe for you, just as we’ve done for well over a century.

Free Moving Estimate

Peasley Moving & Storage offers our customers a wide variety of packing and crating services to best meet their needs. These services range from packing all household goods (a “full pack”) to packing only select belongings of a delicate, sentimental, or highly valuable nature (“fragiles only pack”).  A major cause of moving-related stress is whether your possessions will arrive at their final destination intact and without damage. Utilizing Peasley Moving’s professional packing services will ensure that your belongings are properly handled and packed for transporting, greatly reducing your concerns about this aspect of the moving process.

Full Pack

When Peasley Moving performs a full pack, we take responsibility for ensuring that all your belongings are properly prepared for a safe move. Our trained professional packers use the highest quality packing materials and supplies available, ensuring that your belongings are well protected and the packing process is as efficient as possible. We wrap dishes and glassware in clean newsprint and then they are densely packed into special double-walled dishpack containers. The key to avoiding damage is packing densely so that the movement of packed items in the box is prevented.

How awesome her job went! This is the first time I've used movers, so I was a little apprehensive about how everything would work. The guys were quick and careful and they covered everything. They were friendly and represented Peasley Moving really well. They should be proud of their movers...they're awesome young men!

See What 96 Customers are Saying

Specialized attention is given to large mirrors and hanging artwork.  Such items are properly wrapped in paper pads and carefully placed in specialized mirror packs which are adjustable to accommodate a wide range of dimensions while providing multiple layers of protection. Peasley Moving employs a wide range of carton types and sizes to best accommodate your belongings.  These range from large cartons for bulky light-weight items such as pillows and bedding to small cartons for heavier items such as books. We also provide wardrobe cartons with bars for hanging clothing directly from your closets. Using cartons of the proper size and structure ensures that your items are properly protected for transit and serve to inform the moving crew of the contents for proper handling and loading.

Fragiles Only or Partial Pack

There are circumstances in which a customer may elect to have Peasley Moving perform a partial pack instead of a full pack.  For example, as the cost of a move is based on time and materials, some customers choose to save money by packing some or all of their belongings themselves. In such cases, Peasley Moving can provide professional packing of those items that are either fragile, difficult to pack, or will require more time than the customer has available. When it comes to packing fragile items such as glassware, fine china, lamps and mirrors, we have the proper materials, methods, and experience to set your mind at ease.

Crating

Whether you are making a local move, interstate move, or international move, our goal is to take the necessary steps to ensure the safe transportation of your highly valuable artwork, specialized furniture, and other oversized and valuable belongings. With this in mind, there are circumstances where the best means of protection is to pack such items in specially constructed crates or wood boxes. Several examples include; slate pool tables, marble or glass table tops, oversized or priceless artwork, fragile antiques, and chandeliers. Peasley Moving has the expertise to construct customized wooden crates and boxes to accommodate any item requiring this enhanced level of protection. Your Peasley Moving Relocation Consultant will identify and discuss any crating needs during your free, no obligation estimate appointment.

Boxes & Packing Supplies for the Do-It-Yourselfer

Although one can certainly gather and use boxes and packing materials from recycling dumpsters, supermarkets, and liquor stores, this approach can be both time consuming and costly in the end.  Although it seems like a great way to save money on a move, these boxes and packing materials can present challenges if they turn out to be soiled, infested with insects, or structurally compromised.

Peasley Moving & Storage has a wide range of high quality packing boxes, packing materials and packing supplies.  Thanks to over a century of high volume purchasing, we are able to offer highly competitive prices on these items, allow you to both save money and pack like a professional without the concerns associated with using second hand boxes and materials.
