Local Moving

Let Us Take You Home

We manage residential moves of all kinds, whether it’s local, intrastate or long distance. The first step we take in assessing your move is understanding your specific needs. By understanding your requirements, we can adequately prepare you for what to expect and build a personalized moving strategy that secures a positive moving experience.

Tips Before You Move

Below we have compiled some tips that may assist our customers during the pre-move process.

  1. Do not pack with masking tape or slim cellophane tape. Use PVC (poly-vinyl chloride).
  2. Utilize newspapers just to cushion belongings, not for wrapping things. The ink on the newspapers may rub off and can recolor items, for example, fine china.
  3. Pack similar items together. Try not to pack a fragile china figurine in a similar container with cast iron frying pan, for instance.
  4. Wind electrical cords, tightening them so they don’t dangle.
  5. Seal containers firmly with tape, aside from those containing things that must be left open for the van operator’s inspection.

8 Critical Things You Need To Prepare For Movers

Getting ready to move? Here’s 8 tips on moving effectively while using a moving company like us.

Be Thorough

  • When hiring a mover, make sure you and the company are fully aware of all property to be moved
  • Often, a mover can do an in-home or video tour
  • Don’t always choose the lowest price, that doesn’t mean the best

Review Their Estimate

  • Even if you feel you talked about everything, review the estimate
  • Walk through your house and property to check off any line items
  • Make note of additional concerns and contact the mover

If Possible, Make an Inventory

  • The average American home has a lot of individual items
  • Inventory as much as possible, emphasizing your expensive items
  • This allows you to check your moved property at your new location to make sure everything made it

If You are Packing, Pack Smart

  • Avoid mixing items from different rooms in the same box
  • Give plenty of time for your kitchen
  • Pack important and sentimental in specially marked boxes for easy access
  • Make sure the movers leave boxes you need quickly closest to the door.

Establish a Set Moving Date as Soon as Possible.

  • You don’t want the date to be a guess.
  • You need to be mentally prepared for the move.
  • Make time to prepare your home and pack certain special, fragile objects. This is never good to do in a rush.

Know What Cannot Be Transported

  • Ask your mover for a list of things they won’t move
  • It’s usually chemicals or money and varies with each mover
  • Contact us to talk about items you might have concerns with

Create a Packing Plan

  • While the mover may do most of the packing, have a plan
  • We have done a lot of moves but we don’t know your preferences
  • If possible, email it to the mover before the moving day

Establish Knowledge about Insurance

  • Talk to your mover about insurance
  • Ask what it does and does not cover

Recently Alec and Jackson moved my son to Pensacola from Huntsville. They were great!. My whole experience with TSU was excellent from the time I made the initial call to Colby until Alec & Jackson left Pensacola. VERY PROFESSIONAL! The whole team worked with us, even tho we had given rather short notice. The type of people you enjoy being around. Will definitely use on our next move!

The movers, Mardrell Kirby and Colton (forgot his last name), did a GREAT job moving eight heavy pieces of furniture down some tricky stairs and landing. They even took on disassembling a task desk and removing a door just to get these and other bulky items out of the room. Once on the first floor, they staged furniture/items just right for donation pickup the next day. The rest they delivered to my storage unit and staged them in the right order as well! They were on time, worked within the timeframe of my estimate, and were cheery about it. They also laughed at my humor. From beginning to end, good job This Side Up! A+

I am in the middle of an "intrastate" move requiring all of my belongings be put into This Side Up storage building until the house I am renovating is done.. I have been working with Kristy from day 1 and she has done literally everything she can to be responsive, to make sure I had everything I needed on move day including boxes, bubble wrap, tape, and was there to answer all of my questions. On moving day, Jordan B and Spoon were sent to my house and my 6 year old son instantly fell in love with them. Both guys included my son, kept conversation going as they were also doing their work, let my son look inside the back of the truck. By time they had left and I had my son in my car ready to go, he was calling Jordan and Spoon his "bro's" and would not stop going on about how awesome they were. That whole day will leave a big impact on him through the years! My stuff is now in their storage facility so I'm sure I will have more awesome stuff to add as time goes on. But I am absolutely impressed by every situation and conversation I've had with every single person at this company. Would highly recommend!!

My daughter needed to move from Madison, AL to Lubbock, TX recently. She was able to do her own packing, but we wanted a company which could move her belongings quickly to her new location. We arranged to move with This Side Up's smaller local service instead of the National Van Line they also offer.She wanted to be there before the movers got there, so she left a day early, and I handled the move on the Madison end. Deshawn arrived promptly, and he and his partner worked quickly, efficiently, and carefully. They were considerate and professional. They arrived in Lubbock just a few hours after my daughter did. They made a trip to the storage unit and then moved the rest of her things to her new 2nd-floor apartment.My daughter was very pleased and impressed with the quality of the move and the courtesy of DeShawn. She was so grateful everything went quickly and smoothly!The final moving cost was actually lower than the low end of the estimate I got when I planned the move with the owner and manager. Deshawn said she did a great job of packing and organizing her things, and I think that helped. But the men also worked quickly on both ends. I highly recommend this company for their professionalism, care, and efficiency! We would definitely use them again!

I literally can't say enough good things about this company. I've had so many unpleasant experiences with moving companies in the past that every time I move I get a little skittish.. I am so happy I chose this company. I had the pleasure of having Madrell and Zack as my movers. To say that they are a powerhouse team would be an understatement, these young men moved my entire home with such passion and precision you would have thought that they were moving their own belongings. Madrell & Zack were on time (in fact a few mins early), professional, and the quality of their work should speak volumes for the entire moving industry. If you are looking for the best value for your money, choose this company. I promise you will not regret it.

My husband and I had been in the moving business for over 40 years. This was the first time we were the shippers. Our crew was Shayne and Jackson. They arrived on time and were very friendly and professional. Our stuff is going to storage and we hope that we get them on delivery out. Thank you Shayne and Jackson for putting us at ease with your great attitudes and professionalism. We truly appreciate it.Thank you again!!Chip and Toni

So let me tell you a story about how we booked movers from Steadfast Moving who showed up on a 3 hour job, worked 40 minutes and bailed on us with no notice. The guys at This Side Up Moving completely stepped up the plate and bailed us out. I could not be more thankful or appreciative for their efforts, professionalism and courtesy. They helped us out of an extremely tight spot in the best way possible. Would absolutely recommend and use again.

Spoon, tyler and Ben really came through for us in a pinch today and saved us. Our scheduled movers from steadfast movers worked 30 minutes on our apartment and ghosted us without even saying a word, up and left the job. abandoned Furniture in the hallway of the apartment, truck open, keys in it. total unprofessional job. This side up moving came in with a clutch rush job, got a crew of guys out there and these guys killed it. They were fast, organized, professional, clean, and courteous. I just have nothing but wonderful things to say. 10/10 recommend.

Mardrell Kirby and Nate were outstanding in our 3 bdm move! We were supposed to have 3 movers, but due to unforseen issues, it was just Mardrell and Nate. They quickly got to work, and never stopped moving. They were very careful with our goods and were very efficient at the same time. Can't say enough good about these movers!

Recently, my wife and I had a 2-truck team help us with a big items move. We could not have been happier with their overall helpfulness, attitude, and professionalism. Each team member went over and above to make the move successful. Despite unforeseen hurdles like a steeply graded driveway preventing them from normal loading, they simply parked in the street below, hauled things down the grade, and never complained/never wavered in focus. This individual attention to detail/attitude reflected tremendously on ThisSideUp, as a company. We will be sure to recommend this company to anyone in our circle of influence needing help with a move.

Top-notch moving company and crew at This Side up. I just had my first move with them today for some heavy equipment and inventory for my business. I needed a very on-time move, and am on a tight budget. Matt texted soooo many times helping me figure out something just right, with prompt and helpful responses. What really impressed me, too, was how thorough the intake call was- making sure they understood the need.The crew (Alvin and Devin) showed up exactly on time, worked hard and fast, and were very kind. My only wish is that the company make sure to support them with really good shoes! I have never seen any moving companies do this - but I think TSU is of the caliber to do so.

We could not have had a better experience with our crew from This Side Up Moving. Shayne Mitchell, Alec Higginbotham, Antonio Brown and Jackon Davie were careful with all our belongings, professional and kind to our family. They worked quickly and carefully and got the job done hours sooner than I had thought.

Our team consisted of Shane, Dee, Alvin, Nate and Alec. They were all professional gentlemen that were eager to help out in any way and went the the extra mile in doing some extras for us. Unfortunately the inventory assessment by email was probably not the best idea since it took two days to move us out rather than the one day scheduled which put us behind a day in moving in to our new house. From past moving experience, I believe in-home evaluations are more accurate. We had a few small pieces arrive broken due to the boxes marked “fragile” being packed into the trucks too tightly. Overall I would recommend TSU moving company!

I called This Side Up at 4pm the day before we started moving. My husband and I thought we could handle it but it quickly turned into a job too big for us. They got us a team out the next morning at 8am and we were done and unloaded in just a few hours. Very great team! They wrapped everything and made sure they unloaded everything wherever I wanted it. 10/10, we couldn’t have done it without them.

The moving personnel were absolutely professional. They were so carefully in moving furniture up and down our stairs, never bumping the walls or the furniture. Even more appreciated was their patience while I decided on where several key pieces should go in the room. They moved them several times and offered suggestions. Always with a calm attitude and a smile, they made sure I was completely satisfied with the placement of all items. I would definitely use them again and again.

We had our household moved from Alabama to Tennessee and our team was great to work with. Nathan and Jordan both, were very professional, accommodating to our specific needs, and moved all of our possessions with ease. From our first contact at the office with Chelsea, through the entire move process, everything was a great experience. I would highly recommend this team and company to do all your moving needs. Thanks again for all your help, it was greatly appreciated.

Being a Supervisor at Alabama A&M University I’ve learned to notice good work ethics and qualities something that came to mind as soon as I’ve had the chance to supervise Antonio and Spoon. They always accomplished every task in a timely professional manner. I couldn’t ask for a better crew with assisting us here at Alabama A&M University. As you may notice I labeled two guys as a crew and there work speaks for itself.

Alec and Shayne went above and beyond what was required of them. I can’t say enough good things about how kind, professional, and meticulous they were. I could tell they are passionate about and committed to their job. Not only did they move everything with care, but they also helped me move another piece of furniture that another company failed to place properly. I would recommend this company (and these two men, specifically) to anyone!

I manage all logistics for Huntsville City Schools and TSU Moving has been our partner for over 6 years. I depend on TSU to handle special and routine moving projects, both big and small. They have helped us close, move, and open entire schools/facilities without issue. Also, TSU has consistently been the best value for our dollar, beating out several competitor's prices. Today, I want to give a special "shout out" to Nathan, Spoon, and Kenneth for their recent work at the School Board Headquarters near downtown Huntsville. Five Star effort by all these gentlemen! - Lontrell Harris, Huntsville City Schools

This company has been a life-saver for us. They were dependable, on time and within budget. Their staff was extremely professional. Tone and Spoon were both so helpful, friendly, and courteous...not just to our staff but also to our business processes. They did not get in the way of business! And I think that's what we appreciated the most. They came, did their job with excellence, and made life easier for us. I would hire them again in a heartbeat!

We moved from Madison To Harvest - so, not too far - but we had quite the load. From the first phone call to set up an appointment for an estimate to opening the last box, this moving company was superior. Friendly and courteous, they all seemed to genuinely enjoy their jobs. It made for a very pleasant experience. No issues with breakage or missing items. They arrived according to the schedule - so we never had to wait around. We have moved a few too many times. I wish that the previous times we had used This Side Up Moving. Thank you to Brent and Alvin and to the entire team of professionals.

This Side Up completed our October move from home to storage unit in as efficient, courteous, and professional manner as possible. When one of the storage units we had wasn't able to hold more, one of the movers was able to navigate to the back of the other nearly full one to place our remaining belongings while keeping them in pristine condition. I cannot recommend this company enough.
