Are you ready for your new flooring installation? Preparing for new flooring is exciting but it can also be a lot of work. Maybe you’ve gone for the hardwood you’ve always dreamed of in the dining room, or maybe you’re refreshing the carpet in your much-loved family room. Perhaps you’re giving your entire home totally new flooring. Whatever the project, it is important you prepare for the installation by moving any necessary furniture. Please let us know if you need assistance moving the contents from one room to another. We offer contents moving as a service to our customers so please let us know if we can help. 

Keep in mind, we are flooring installers and not professional movers. While we take every precaution when moving your furniture, we cannot be held liable for broken or damaged property. We’ve put together a list of the things we do and do not move. Please see below.

Things we do NOT move:

  • Pictures
  • Knick Knacks
  • Lamps
  • Personal papers
  • Books
  • Clothes/shoes
  • Bedding
  • Pet enclosures
  • Dishes
  • Pianos
  • Pool Tables
  • Electronics

Things we DO move:

  • Sofas
  • Dressers
  • Beds (minus linens)
  • Desks
  • Chairs
  • Empty bookshelves
  • Hutches (empty)
  • Armoires (empty)
  • Ottomans
  • Side/end tables
  • Tables

Don’t see something here? Feel free to ask! Exceptions can be made to move the small items if the small items are inside of boxes. Additional charges or possible job rescheduling may apply if we arrive to install and find additional or unknown contents moving is needed before installation can begin.

Also, please note that clothes and shoes are in the list of things we do NOT move. We do ask that all closets are cleaned out from 4’ and down prior to us arriving for installation. Wire shelving as well as their supports to the floor need to be completely empty from top to bottom.

Moving Fees

Moving fees will vary depending on the amount of furniture to be moved and the size of the pieces. Typically, our price ranges from $50-500. Our measure professional will determine the amount when he is out measuring the space for flooring.
