We take care of your valuable items as if they were our own. Our team is trained on the best ways to wrap, pack, and transport antiques and fine art.
Pianos can be heavy, fragile, and difficult to move. Our trained teams use professional equipment to move your piano up and down stairs safely and efficiently.
We aim to always respectfully show our appreciation to the men and women who serve our country, which is why we offer discounted packing, unpacking, and other services to members of the military.
If you are downsizing or want to keep some items in storage, we can help. One of our core services is secure storage.
As you pack up and move overseas, we can help you along the way. We offer several relocation services to meet your needs.

Everything You Need to Know About Moving From NJ to NC
Are you ready to trade New Jersey’s city skylines and bustling crowds for North Carolina’s rolling Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountains and picturesque beach towns? Many New Jersey residents leave the Garden State in search of more job opportunities and sunnier weather. After all, North Carolina has a relatively healthy economy. But, it’s important to know exactly what to expect before you relocate.
Consider this: Do you like warmer weather? Do you value your space? Whether you end up in the pristine mountains and hills on the western portion of the state, the urban centers or suburban communities in the Piedmont region, or the charming coastal towns — here is what you can expect when moving from New Jersey to North Carolina
Winters will be warm(er)
Weather is an important consideration because North Carolina is warmer and more humid than New Jersey (NC’s relative humidity is 70.6%, while NJ’s is 68.5%). North Carolina has a moderate climate. It is warm or hot most of the year, but the temperatures cool down in the winter months. The average high temperature in Raleigh, NC in the winter is about 51°F, and the average low is 32°F. On the coast, those temperatures are higher. If you find yourself missing snow, drive west into the Blue Ridge Mountains. It usually snows in the mountains, although not as much as it does in New Jersey.
You’ll have more money in your pockets
Many New Jersey residents have no option but to move because of the expensive cost of living and steep property taxes, which are some of the highest in the nation. In North Carolina, you get respite from financial strain. Property taxes are low, and the cost of living is much lower.
The median home value in North Carolina is $174,380, less than half of New Jersey’s median home value of $360,084. Food and gas prices in North Carolina are also lower than the national average. But, it’s important to remember that the personal income tax rate in NC is higher than in other states. On pay day, your check might be less than you expected.
The Coast Hosts Hurricanes
If you’re living on North Carolina’s coast, you’ll likely have to deal with hurricanes and tropical storms. Hurricane season is from June 1 to November 30. Be prepared for hurricanes — including purchasing hurricane insurance — and always pay attention to hurricane warnings.
Goodbye diners and bagels, hello BBQ and sweet tea
While bagels and diners still exist in North Carolina, they simply aren’t the same as they are in New Jersey. In North Carolina, BBQ and sweet tea are staples, and almost everyone has an opinion about where to find the best BBQ. Say hello to new culinary experiences!
