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.

It's rare that you find any company that is efficient and retains excellent customer service. Cloud9 Moving Company is a minority-owned small business that exemplifies what other companies only strive for. 
Our son faced a last minute move from his apartment, and he contacted Irene towards the end of the month, the busiest time in the moving business. Irene was very hands on from the beginning, tracking timing, updating him and physically helping her able guys with the move.
They took their lead from her, and all of them moved with consistent and polite efficiency.
Irene and Cloud9 Moving put customer service number one, and if this is the norm and not the exception, this moving company will be a standout in a competitive market.
We highly recommend them without any hesitation.

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.
