Moving FAQ

Moving can be a stressful process, and many people have questions about how to make it easier. Here are some frequently asked questions:

General

Plan thoroughly before moving – consider timeline, budget, packing, movers vs DIY, transportation, address change, and contacts.

Generally our schedule usually fills up 2-3 weeks in advance. Saturdays tend to fill up in less time. However, we’ve had customers book a move 1 day in advance! We understand that moving is hectic and Shannon Moving will do our best to accommodate your needs in scheduling your move. Contact us today for a hassle-free experience. 

Shannon Moving offers packing and unpacking services. We are expert packers. If customers prefer to pack their own goods, we have a wide variety of materials available to purchase for packing.

Shannon Moving can provide storage for you in San Francisco, California. If you require storage in the area you are moving, we can make arrangements for this too. Storage is available for as little as one month to several years.

We have a wide variety of packing material available to purchase. Additionally, on local moves we provide wardrobes on move day at no extra charge. We also have used material available at reduced costs and frequently at no charge when available.

We have 8 – 10 wardrobe boxes on the truck at any time. They are great for your hanging clothes.

99 times out of 100 you do not need to empty dressers, unless of course, they contain breakable items.

Be sure to remember to inform all necessary parties such as your post office, banks, and utility companies in order to ensure a smooth transition.
