  • When should I call Mid-West Moving & Storage?

If you need to move today, we can probably do that. If you require a written in-home estimate, you should call about 4 to 6 weeks before your move. We generally just ask you to give us as much notice as you can.


  • How long does Mid-West Moving & Storage need for an in-home estimate?

Usually no more than an hour.


  • What are my responsibilities as the person being moved?

In brief …

  1. Be present during the packing of your belongings.
  2. Take personal responsibility for jewelry and other high value items.
  3. Check and sign the inventory of your belongings.
  4. Ensure that no prohibited items are packed.

  • 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.


  • Anything that is definitely a no-go area?

Well, mainly those things you might expect – drugs, alcohol, weapons, ammunition. Shipping certain high value items or collections may require you to purchase extra coverage.


  • What about my car?

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 move, however.


  • Suppose I pack myself?

Why not? But be aware of the potential problems. For instance, valuation coverage will not pay out on goods packed by their owner, unless the exterior of the box is damaged.


  • How long will Mid-West Moving & Storage take to pack my goods?

Every home is different but we can normally pack a home in 1-2 days.


  • Can I leave my clothes in their drawers?

Yes, you can. Just be sure not to leave anything solid that can damage the piece.

"Excellent experience with Midwest Movers. Meticulous, organized and expedient! Ask for Rick. He has moved us twice and we love him. Josh and Marco were equally as good. How often can you say moving was painless?!"

"I had a great experience with Midwest. The movers arrived early, set up my entire home with protective pads and flooring, effectively moved all of my home items, and cleaned up afterward. I have actually used them twice. I had different employees each time, but both crews of men were equally prompt, professional, and efficient. I would highly recommend Midwest."

"Midwest Moving worked with me and my grandmother to move her entire house across the country. Very professional and efficient. My family has a history of moving with Midwest and each time they have taken care of our belongings until we settled in. 5 stars and heavily recommended for moving across the Midwestern region."
