Fantastic moving company!!! 

I called around for quotes and these guys responded quickly, were friendly and knowledgeable and gave me the best rate for my 2bd/2bath apartment move. 

On the day of the actual move the crew (Alex and Sasha) arrived on time, took utmost care of my belongings, were so fast that they finished earlier then estimated.

I have done a serious research while looking for a company that could provide full packing and moving of my 4 bedroom house into my new home few miles away. I spoke with different moving company's managers, received different quotes and in the end decided to go with Cloud9 Moving because of the best quote and most importantly the most friendly and professional moving coordinator, Irene. Btw, I also didnt want to worry about time and supplies cost (those can really add up) so Irene offered to provide me with an all inclusive flat rate and it worked out perfectly! Everything from the first in-house estimate to planning of where each piece of furniture will be placed in my new home to the actual moving day was masterfully coordinated and executed.

Tape: Every box needs to be taped, top and bottom, with 2 – 2 1/2 inch gummed or masking tape to give it additional strength and prevent opening, so you’ll need approximately one roll of tape for every 15 to 20 boxes.

Boxes and SuppliesBlankets: All furniture should be wrapped in blankets for its protection. Cloud9 Moving provides the use of blankets free of charge. You can also purchase blankets from us if you wish to keep some of your items in the storage.

Original Packing: Whenever it’s available, use the original packing material for your electronic items such as computers, stereos and screens.

Shrink Wrap: Used for extra protection against dust and other materials if you plan on storing your items for a long period of time, and for bundling items together. Shrink-wrap wraps around any item without leaving any sticky residue.

Floor Runners: Rug runners used to protect hardwood and marble floors.
