Common Questions People Ask Bay Area Moving Companies

Will movers disassemble and reassemble furniture?

AMS Relocation movers can disassemble, protect, and reassemble furniture at your new home. Furniture assembly and disassembly can be included in your long distance quote or provided at an hourly rate with a local relocation.

Can movers handle all the packing?

Our moving team provides full and partial packing services and unpacking. We can pack your entire home, only fragile or challenging items, or specific rooms you don’t want to pack. We will even arrive with all the packing supplies needed!

Are there items a moving company won’t move?

Bay Area moving companies can handle almost all household goods, but there are some items we cannot load or transport due to government regulations and safety or insurance reasons. Prohibited items include:

  • Perishable items
  • Plants
  • Ammunition
  • Live animals
  • Flammable grill or barbecue supplies including filled propane tanks, charcoal, and lighter fluid
  • Most cleaning supplies
  • Nail polish
  • Some high-value belongings

How much should I tip movers?

You are not required to tip movers, but your team certainly appreciates the recognition for a job done well. A common guideline is $5/hour/mover, 15-20% of the moving cost split among the crew, or $50-100 per mover for large jobs and $10-$25 per mover for smaller jobs.

What’s the difference between a local and long distance move?

Every moving company has its own local and long distance moving parameters. At AMS Relocation, a local move is within 100 miles and covers San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Contra Costa, Alameda, and Marin Counties. Long distance moves are relocations outside this radius.

Will I get a detailed estimate before my move date?

Absolutely. California law requires movers to provide a written estimate after completing a visual inspection of your goods which includes a “Not To Exceed” price. You will also receive a copy of our moving services agreement and notices about your rights as a customer.
