When should I call Slater Transfer & Storage?
To receive a written in-home estimate for our packing and moving services, call us about 7 days to 2 weeks before your move.

Usually no more than an hour. Your project manager will arrive promptly checking what all needs to be packed up and loaded into your moving truck. Based on the number of items, he or she will be able to give you an upfront estimate for our affordable moving services.
What are my responsibilities?
Packers and movers at Slater Transfer & Storage will take care of the heavy lifting for you and your family or your commercial business. However, we do ask that you:

So what can or can’t I take with me?
Generally speaking, dispose of all flammable items, liquids, foods and other items that should not be shipped. Anything that can deteriorate should not be shipped. If you have a question about something, just call and ask our local and long-distance movers.
Anything that is definitely a no-go area?
Well, mainly those things you might expect: drugs, alcohol, weapons, ammunition, etc. Shipping certain high value items or collections may require you to purchase extra coverage.

Most of the time we can take your car(s), truck or SUV with the rest of your belongings in the trailer or container. If this is not possible, we can arrange for an alternate method. We do not transport cars as part of a regular local moving services.
Suppose I pack myself?
