Our Policy:

  • To make a reservation for your move date, you need to deposit $250. This needs to be done over the phone with a representative from Monroe Moving Pro who will verify your information and availability of move date or through our online portal. Please don’t email us your credit card information to avoid any security breach.
  • PACKING YOUR GOODS: All Customers are responsible for packing their boxes and delicate items (mirror,glass, marble, and electronics) EXCEPT noted differently on this Quote. All mattresses, futon pads, and box springs should be protected properly in mattress boxes or plastic covers for health and sanitary reasons. Personal belongings that are stored in plastic bags are not allowed on the truck. Note: Packing your supplies is not included in the transportation cost and will be charged accordingly.

  • PARKING RESTRICTIONS: The Customers have to verify parking limitations with the building/s management or local police department at the current and new locations to avoid any parking violations by the carrier.
