Understanding Our Cancellation Policy

1. Cancellation Window

  • Advance Notice: To ensure you receive a full refund of your deposit, we recommend providing us with as much notice as possible if you need to cancel your move. Typically, a cancellation notice given at least 7 days in advance is required for a full refund.
  • Short Notice: If you need to cancel within 7 days of your scheduled move, the refund policy may vary. We will do our best to accommodate your situation, but please be aware that some or all of the deposit may be non-refundable due to the short notice.

2. Rescheduling Options

  • Flexible Rescheduling: If you need to reschedule your move instead of canceling, we offer flexible options to adjust your moving date. Rescheduling with sufficient notice often allows you to retain your deposit and apply it to the new moving date.
  • Impact on Deposit: The impact on your deposit when rescheduling depends on the notice period and availability. Our team will work with you to find the best possible solution.

Reasons for Deposit Policies

1. Reservation of Services

  • Booking Resources: When you book a move with us, we reserve resources including vehicles, equipment, and personnel specifically for your move. This preparation incurs costs and commitments on our end.
  • Compensation for Reserved Time: The deposit helps to cover these costs in case of last-minute cancellations, ensuring that our resources are utilized efficiently.

2. Ensuring Availability

  • Commitment to Customers: The deposit policy helps us maintain a high level of service availability for all customers. By securing a deposit, we can better manage our schedule and ensure that each move receives the attention it deserves.
  • Reduced Cancellations: A deposit also reduces the likelihood of cancellations, allowing us to serve more customers reliably.
