Short Moves started in a garage in February of 1990. Founder, George Burns worked in the Moving Industry throughout the 80's and realized that there were a majority of movers that took advantage of people during their most vulnerable times. George and his brother-in-law Charlie Dean decided to start a company treating people how they would want to be treated. A quarter century later, Short Moves has earned a wide base of repeat and referral customers and continues to grow locally.
We are dedicated to our customers. In the history of Short Moves, we have never missed a single commitment. We still to this day get calls from a few people at the end of the month because a company they hired did not show up, or will not answer their phone. We at Short Moves stay with you every step of the way from booking until the end of your move. You will always talk to a live person when you call our office during business hours. Our goal is to make your move smooth and stress free.
Leave it to the Professionals. Moving your furniture safely and efficiently is a craft that takes years to perfect. Any employee of Short Moves is a full-time skilled professional. Each employee must have years of prior experience and pass a nationwide background check before they can work for our company. Some moving companies think it is OK to overbook their schedules and use cheap temporary laborers, leaving someone inexperienced with an unknown background to walk in your home and handle your personal items. We could not imagine sending someone we have no knowledge about into our customer's home.
We work for you honestly. If you call and explain your move situation, we will see what we can do to get your move done as cost efficient as possible. We do not have any hidden fees or surprise charges, and we do not purposely low-ball an estimate just to get business. In our opinion, lying to someone is not a good way to establish good customer relations.
