In a perfect world, moving is a stress-free, enjoyable experience—not only for the people moving, but for everyone involved. Friends and relatives cheerfully volunteer to help you push your heavy belongings up steep staircases or unload them into vans, neighbors offer you the use of their trucks, and children carefully organize their belongings into tightly packed and labeled boxes.

In the real world, however, the reality of moving is just a bit different. At AMS Bekins, we understand how stressful the moving process can be, whether you’re relocating halfway across the world or moving just down the street.
