What coverage is available for my move?
Coverage for your shipment in the moving industry can be a tricky subject and many movers are happy to skew the truth to make clients feel better before moving. The truth about what ANY moving company can offer you is below.
- Valuation Coverage: Any moving company without you purchasing anything additional is required to provide each move with valuation coverage. Moves within the state of New Jersey have standard valuation of $1.00 per lb. per item , $0.60 per lb. per item for long distance moving and $0.30 per lb. per item for moves within the state of NY.
- Full Value Protection: Full Value Protection (FVP) allows your moving company to repair or replace your items with something of similar aesthetic value and functionality. Should you wish to purchase FVP, please check with your sales associate for pricing or feel free to refer to your order for service.
- A third option, which is the most comprehensive and we consider it the best possible option for your shipment, is to hire a third party insurance company. Our recommendation is Baker International (www.bakerintl.com).
Will you disconnect and reconnect my appliances?
While we are highly trained in moving services, we are not licensed electrician or plumbing professionals. Our client services team members are available to help you in finding the right licensed professional for the job or are able to coordinate the service on your behalf. Please speak to your sales associate for more information and pricing.
What about my gas powered tools, can you move them ?
Gas tanks and Propane tanks should not be transported. Any equipment that has fuel in it (Lawnmower, weed whacker, etc) should have the gas emptied prior to the moving company arriving.
May I choose the date that I want my items delivered when moving long distance?
White Glove Moving does offer guaranteed delivery options. Please speak with your sales professional to see if that option is available for your area and to inquire about pricing.
Is there a minimum distance for a move? What if I am moving across the street?

Do you move cars?

Do you offer packing services?
Gladly! White Glove Moving and Storage has many packing services available. Let our moving professionals pack your home worry free! Contact your sales associate for more details and pricing.
Do you offer full packing services?
The term “full packing” means that White Glove will provide home packing services for the entire contents of your home, including your moving boxes. If you are interested in full packing services, we strongly recommend that you allow one of our friendly, knowledgeable, and professional sales representatives to come out to your home for a free in-home estimate. He will walk through the home with you as you point out to him the items that are being moved and the items that are staying. We recommend an in-home estimate for a full packing quote because the price fluctuation from in inaccurate full packing quotes can be substantial if not done properly.
How much am I supposed to tip my movers?
Thank you for asking! Tipping is a personal decision and our movers always appreciate your generosity. The average tip is between $50 – $100 per day per mover.
When will my shipment be delivered, I am moving long distance?
All long distance moves are assigned a delivery coordinator once the shipment is picked-up.

You will be informed along the way of any and all updates available.
