Movers by the Sea

About Us

Experience and Professionalism


Anyone can throw boxes into a truck but our philosophy is to make sure that everything being moved stays in the same condition from start to finish.  We practice proven techniques and our attention to detail will help make for a smooth transition.  No matter what it is or how far it's being moved each item will be gently handled.  We make sure to wrap your furniture for its protection when carried & traveling inside the truck.  



Our services include office, apartment/condo, house, intra-complex moves to/from any type of storage unit &/or truck (i.e. PODS, Units, Pack Rats, Cool Boxes, U-boxes and other portable storage containers; U-hauls, Budget, Penske, Ryder trucks; and ABF trailers); packing &/or unpacking; and disassembly &/or reassembly of complex pieces (i.e. custom bedroom sets, glass furniture, dining tables, trampolines, etc. - just let us know what you have -- we can do it). We are also experienced with moves involving senior communities and have awareness of the need for extra care in those surroundings.

Money & Time Saving Tips

Plan Ahead

As much as possible pre-plan where you would like your boxes and furniture placed in your new location before moving.

Self Packing

 Pack and label on the top and all four sides of each box according to where it will be unpacked in your new home. Also boldly note "FRAGILE" on boxes with glass and other breakable items. Empty all contents of all furniture drawers into boxes. It is best to individually wrap dishes with packing paper before placing into boxes. Figurines, crystal, china and other extremely fragile items should be bubble wrapped individually. TIP -- start with the kitchen, it takes the longest to pack. Use up refrigerator/freezer contents well before moving.

Use small (1.5 cu. ft.) boxes for heavy smaller items such as books, dishes, DVDs, breakables, small appliances, canned goods and tools. TIP - 20 small boxes (rather than 10 large heavy boxes) are more efficient, less damaging and easier to handle.

Use medium (3.0 cu. ft.) boxes for small household items such as pots and pans, medium appliances, plastic organizer containers and toys.

Use large (4.5 cu. ft.) boxes for light weight items such as lamp shades, stereo speakers, board games, stuffed animals, pillows and clothing.

Use wardrobe boxes for hanging items still on the hangers. Can also be used for shoes, bedding, and miscellaneous light/bulky items.

Use mirror/picture cartons for protecting these glass items as well as glass tabletops and shelves. These special cartons can be customized to fit any sized piece. 

Large furniture and appliances

 Our movers will handle the wrapping of these items. (The movers will unhook washer/dryers and refrigerators but will not re-hook up at new locations for liability reasons.) 

Prior to Move Day

Have all walkways/pathways clear of clutter or obstructions.
Clean out grills of oils and ashes.
Do not water plants.
Remove all light bulbs from lamps.
Optional: disassemble large furniture such as beds, desks and T.V., stereo and electronic connections with cords wound up securely. 

Moving Day

Be fully packed, organized, and ready to go when your movers arrive.
Jewelry, prescriptions, light bulbs, flammables and paint should be transported by owner.
Have young children and pets off the premises for their safety and the most efficient move.
Before the moving truck leaves be sure to double check closets, cabinets, and drawers to ensure that nothing has been left behind.
