SETT Movers plans to remain fully operational during the COVID-19 situation. We’re taking all necessary precautions, and our commitment to our customers remains paramount. Please direct any questions to 877-690-SETT (7388).
Congratulations! You're moving... now what?
We’ve compiled a list of tips to help prepare your belongings and expedite your move.
Find a place near to you that will accept donations of household goods.
Make practical decisions, don’t pay to move what you do not use.
If the items you wish to donate are difficult to move, give us a call to make arrangements for your movers to assist that effort.
#2-PREPARE TO PACK
Think ahead, where will you stage your packed boxes? (you may need to pull a couch out from the wall to stack boxes safely out of your living space.)
Make your staging area as near to the door as possible, time is money.
Use the items you already have in your home as packing fodder, some of these may include linens, plastic grocery store bags, or shredded paper. (Hint- for less mess on the unpack, put your shredded paper into a tied grocery bag to create a cushion for your items.)
As you gather your linens, consider putting a set of sheets for each bed in the drawer of its dresser, or a suitcase. This will be a time saver on move day, you will not have to search for the box with the sheets in it.
Save your back and your time by creating the space you need for packing. Folding tables are a great aid in this.
Gather all the supplies you need before you start.
Tape the bottom of each box before you begin to pack it.
Remember, SPACE BREAKS! each box should be filled. pay special attention to the corners of the box as you move it. the corners should not give.
For the safe transport of liquids, plastic, preferably see through totes work well. (Hint-placing each item into a plastic grocery bag and lining this tote with a towel can help reduce the damage caused by a leak if one should occur.)
If totes are not an option, label the box “liquids” and put arrows to indicate not to place this box on its side, or simply leave the box open so the movers can see what they are transporting.
Label not only the top of the box, but at least one side as well. Once they are stacked, the top will not be visible.
To properly pack your plates, they should be padded and placed in the box vertically.
Remove any items from dresser drawers or armoires that are not cloth.
When you’re sure your packing is complete, consider the oft forgotten spots in your home like the cabinet above your stove, or the back shelf in a closet.
Look up! not everything is at eye level. scan your walls ceiling to floor in every room.
Look down. Treasures such as door stops can be easily overlooked.
#3-PREPARE FOR YOUR MOVERS TO ARRIVE
Know what you do not want your movers to touch, and designate a spot for these items. (Hint-your vehicle or your bathtub is an excellent spot to use. a shelf in a closet or corner of a room are also good spots.)
Anything personal or irreplaceable should be kept with you.
Any medicines you need should be considered.
Before the movers arrive, to the best of your ability, clear your driveway and the road in front of your home, to allow the truck maximum maneuvering space. This will avoid wasted time at the start of your move.
Table tops should be cleared.
Beds should be stripped.
Everything that can be in a box should be, unless packing arrangements have been discussed.
If possible, enlist a person who does not reside with you, to walk the entire property to make sure no statues, planters, benches, wind chimes or other small treasures are left behind.
Following these few steps can make a big difference to your experience. If you have any other moving related questions, please feel free to ask!
WITH SETT MOVERS YOU ARE FAMILY
A few of the kind words we’ve received from our extended family:
Do your research, call others, then call SETT Movers. You won't feel violated like you are dealing with a "Tin Man" ... SETT will be the last moving company you call. One of the most stressful experiences in life is moving. Add additional family health crisis two weeks before the actual 1000 mile move and there is no normal. Tara and her crew were responsive, professional, and supportive when the melt downs (plural) occured. We have many family herilooms and my collector car (yes, they put my car in the truck too), all were handled with care. I shared my SETT Movers experience with a friend who has moved long distances several times and his response was, "I have never heard someone say anything good about their movers, especially a month later". They are worth every penny, take that from someone who still has the first penny I ever earned!

My second time around using SETT Movers - just about a year later - and I am just as impressed!! While I could have gone with a closer option, Tara at SETT Movers was my first call and I am so thrilled they were able to accommodate us. I have now had the pleasure of working with Tara (who is wonderful) twice and a total of 6 SETT Movers professionals - 2 the first time around and 4 others this time. I can happily and easily describe all the same way - professional, careful, conscientious, friendly, hardworking, knowledgable, and more. Shout out to Castro, Jack G, Paul, and Austin for making our most recent experience not only easy, but also truly a pleasure. Thank you for taking such good care of our belongings! You are all terrific and SETT Movers is the best in the business!!

I’ve used several moving companies throughout the years and this one is the best by far! Amazing customer service from the moment Tara walked into my house to give me an estimate to the final delivery of my items. John, Jon, Tyler and Austin were the best! These guys didn’t stop for a break. They packed the truck with such precision and every item in my house was wrapped to prevent any possible damage to the furniture. Excellent customer service! In fact, when we pulled up to my storage unit a couple people saw how the moving truck was packed & asked for business cards. I would highly recommend this company to anyone who is considering moving! You’ll be very satisfied & the pricing was extremely reasonable.

I cannot be happier with the experience I had with Sett Movers! In the chaos of selling our home and moving out of state, they helped make the transition a smooth one. Tara was always pleasant to speak with and timely with her responses. Glenn and Castro were wonderful, taking the time and care to unload our things as if they were their own. I 1000% would use them again, if it weren't for being 3 states away! You won't be disappointed.
01:36 04 Nov 22
Sett is one of the best Moving co. I've ever used. I've recommended them to everyone I can.

20:47 24 Oct 22
Tara was great at setting up and scheduling my move. Pricing was very fair. Moving day went smoothly. Castro, Tyler W., and Jack worked fast and efficiently. All my items were taken care of during the move and the guys made sure everything was placed where it needed to be in my new place. So happy I found a good moving company. Thank you for making my move easier!

SETT Movers sent Glenn and Mitch in a handsome new truck to handle our move into a condo in Michigan. They were nothing short of amazing --friendly, professional and very hard working. Tara was a joy to work with throughout the process which included a year of storage after moving us out of our home in New York state. I have no doubt SETT Movers can efficiently execute any kind of move -- long or short, easy or complicated.
02:23 28 Aug 22
I can't say enough about SETT Movers. From the first contact with Tara, through the estimate process with Tyler and finally the move with Dave W., Austin and John C. 2ho were amazing. I'm only moving local but had to have my belongings moved into storage until my new home is ready. They took care with all my furniture including an antique. Dave and his crew were able to properly care for all of my things. I would recommend them to any one who needs to move whether it be local or out of state, I can't say enough good about the whole team.
23:18 24 Aug 22
Excellent moving company. Tara was easy to contact and very thorough. The team, Dave W, Nick D, John C, and John G did exactly what we asked and more while being extremely careful with all our furniture. This is an all around professional group whom I would definitely hire again in the future.
16:20 16 Aug 22
I could not have been more satisfied with Sett Movers. Paul. Castro, Nick P and Austin were professional, courteous and very efficient. They worked tirelessly, as a well oiled machine, on one of the hottest days of the summer!! Attention to detail insured that every box and piece of furniture arrived without incident!My biggest concern of the day was that they stayed hydrated!! They made a stressful day almost enjoyable.I would highly recommend the company without reservation!
17:03 15 Aug 22
Fantastic moving company! Tara was quick to respond and went over everything in detail. The team, John, Jack, Mitch & Nick were incredible, handled everything with care, they were punctual, caring, courteous, and professional. I have to move again in 8 weeks and plan to use them again.
00:44 05 Aug 22
My mom used this company to do a local move and was extremely happy with their service. The team she had - John, Nick P, Paul, Austin and Dave were fantastic and very quick
00:45 31 Jul 22
Tara at Sett did a fantastic job coordinating our move from New Jersey to South Carolina, Bryce did an excellent job making sure the truck was loaded so that nothing would break, This was an 11 hour move and we could not be happier, Nickolas Castro and Steve did an incredible job unloading and setting up everything. Nothing was damaged or broken. If your looking for awesome service and a fair price do yourself a favor and go with SETT, thank you so much for everything!!

We recently had some furniture moved from Tom's River NJ to North East MD. Jon C., Paul and Dave W. we're great. The furniture was quite large and they did a great job. They were on time, friendly and very professional. Tara was great to work with 👍This was my second time in a month using SETT MOVERS.If I could give SETT MOVERS more than 5 stars I would. Tara was able to help me out when the local movers in Maryland called the morning of the move didn't have enough staff nor trucks. She was able to arrange to have SETT MOVERS move us on their way back from another move. I had to wait a couple of weeks but it was well worth the wait. Glenn, Austin and Dave W were great. They kept us updated on eta and arrived at the storage unit exactly on time. It was raining that day but our furniture was kept safe and dry. The guys were so professional and polite. I would recommend SETT MOVERS to anyone that want true knowledgeable, professional movers. Thanks guys 👌👍
13:40 18 Jul 22
Sett Movers is exceptional in every way. From the very 1st phone call with Tara down to the very last box moved. SETT Movers and their entire team made us feel very comfortable in what could easily have been a very stressful time. John & Castro took great care in packing and loading our things. Very professional & courteous. When it came time to unloading the truck they made sure that every box was in the right room as well as every piece of furniture was exactly where I wanted it to be placed. The entire team goes above and beyond. I highly recommend- you will not be disappointed!Sett Movers A++

20:38 27 Jun 22
The movers: John, Castro, and Jack were terrific!
16:56 25 Jun 22
I worked with Glenn, Nick P, Mitch & Paul who did an amazing job for me during a tricky move. Their pleasant personalities made this experience wonderful. All four men were extremely hard working, they were quick yet careful and I have nothing but good things to say about them-- I will be using them for future moves!
19:35 21 Jun 22
Glenn, Mitch, John C, Young Jack and Paul were amazing to work with. Had a really heavy item to move and they did a great job, thanks again!
17:45 21 Jun 22
From the beginning Tara was very easy to work with, she went out of her way to help make this stressful move as easy as possible. On move day Glenn, Mitch, Paul, John C & Jack were on time and ready to go. The entire process was handled with the utmost professionalism. They were friendly as well as courteous, you can tell they take pride in their work. I even joked that they took better care of my furniture than I do. I would recommend them a million times over.
02:53 21 Jun 22
Today was our second experience with Sett Movers. We thought the first was outstanding and could not be rivaled but then today happened. John, John C. and Castro were absolutely exceptional. They arrived exactly on schedule, worked quickly and professionally with a helpful and friendly approach. I have already recommended Sett to friends and will continue to sing their praises .... they deserve it !!
00:05 14 Jun 22
I had a great experience with John, Castro, Nick P, Jon and Jack. I moved out of state and couldn’t have asked for a smoother experience. They were on time a, professional and took great care of my things. I highly recommend them.
20:09 31 May 22
The movers, Glenn,John, Mitch and Daez, did an awesome job with very heavy furniture and a difficult staircase to maneuver in. They took great care and were very cheerful to work with. Highly recommend Sett and will certainly use them again in the future.
16:20 29 May 22
Highly recommended! Totally professional and reliable. Thank you John, Paul, and John 2. my cousin is moving from out of state and helped me coordinate getting some furniture in their new home before they arrive! I know I will be referring them to my clients.
00:02 27 May 22
Raising a broadcast for the team at SETT. Had a great experience with them 8 years back, so when it was time to move the greyhaired parents down the East Coast to my neighborhood, I called them up yet again. They did a full on pack-move-unpack from NYC to Richmond and were yet again fantastic. Kudos to the entire team, especially Castro and Glenn on the move and unpack, and Jack the packer who at 61 is still getting it done!Beyond courteous, and so patient with a pair of 82 year olds who were a little terrified of moving from their house or 35 years. Competitive pricing and all the spit and polish you could ask for. You would be doing yourself a HUGE favor if you had SETT help you move. Family owned and operated too, so no feeding a huge faceless corporation, a nice bonus!
14:31 22 May 22
These guys are the BEST by a long shot. They followed up on everything they agreed to do, from arriving on time to the care they showed in handling our belongings. No way I could have expected more! John, Mitch, Jack and Dave were were pleasant and helped setup and arrange our furniture. Work was done properly and quickly. This is performance as it should be! DON'T EVEN THINK OF CALLING ANYONE ELSE!
15:40 18 May 22
I hired SETT movers to move my items from an outdoor storage unit into my new home. From start to finish, everyone was professional, personable, and took care of my items as if they were their own. I will always use SETT movers for any future moves.Thank you Tara, Glenn, and Jack!
12:38 18 May 22
John, Castro and Dave Z were amazing! They took great care of our mom and all of her belongings, which included special packing for a grandfather clock. They were both professional and caring. A big thank you to the three of them!
23:52 15 May 22
SETT Movers are lifesavers!! My Mom and I needed furniture moved within our home, but we were having trouble finding a mover that would help. Tara from SETT was so wonderful and easy to work with! She got us all set up with an amazing crew, and we didn’t have to wait! Dave W, Mitch and Jack were amazing and had everything moved and in place well within our window. They went above and beyond in helping us and we can’t thank them enough! Don’t move without calling SETT!
12:31 08 May 22
This was our third move and SETT Movers were absolutely the best moving company we ever experienced. From our estimate by Steven to our communication with Tara, it was a seamless experience. They went out of their way to handle an unexpected delay. Our movers John, Castro, Nick P, Dave Z and Paul were true professionals, taking care with our property and finished the job in record time! Highly recommend this moving company.
19:02 07 May 22

19:31 05 May 22
Sett Movers moved us in 2017 and again in 2019. Recently we needed some heavy furniture moved within our home and they accommodated us within days of our request. Each move was handled professionally. Never any hidden costs. Hoping we don't move any time soon, but if we do, I wouldn't hesitate to use Sett Movers again!
23:28 02 May 22
You would be crazy Not to use SETT Movers for Your Moving Needs. Tara was an absolute professional, she was always easily available to answer any questions about our Move, and made sure our move went smoothly. I also can’t say enough about our movers Glen and David. They were on time , friendly, professional, and hard working. They made sure our move went as easy as you could possibly ask for. Great Job SETT Movers! I will definitely be recommending you to friends and Family.
14:00 29 Apr 22
Moving with Sett movers was the best decision we made. John, Castro, Nick P and Dave Z were absolutely phenomenal. So professional, clean, caring, organized and highly motivated and enthusiastic. They made a crazy day, Not so crazy and way less stressful. Everything was handled with care, nothing was damaged and every box was placed where we asked. They wrapped our TVs, our furniture and even took apart and put back together our baby’s crib. Absolutely recommend this company and we already have to many people. You guys made our moving day so relaxed and we cannot thank you enough. Not to mention, pricing was incredibly reasonable and so so worth it. Thank you so much!!
13:34 28 Apr 22
I called and Tara was so amazing. She knew exactly what I needed and was very accommodating ❣️ I had a fire in my house and was so upset and her guys Glenn and Dave W were so nice and did a great job. Ty Sett Movers❣️
20:44 20 Apr 22
My entire experience with Sett was excellent. All of the personnel were professional and upbeat. From scheduling with Tara a walkthrough for the estimate, the actual walkthrough with Tyler, and ultimately the move, with Glenn, Dave W and Jack, it was a great experience. Thank you, Sett. You wowed me for sure!
22:33 13 Apr 22
We had to move twice within 6 months. I cannot give enough praise for this moving company! From the courteous, clear and accommodating communication with Tara...who walked me through quoting a price (which was very reasonable) arranging the move and following up on everything...to the movers who handled everything so professionally. The guys were prompt, efficient, professional and friendly. Absolutely nothing was damaged and they placed / moved everything the way I wanted. Thanks again Glenn, Mitch & Nick P.! I would highly recommend SETT to anyone I who needs to make a move.
11:46 10 Apr 22
I was incredibly pleased with my experience with Sett Movers especially with Glenn and Mitch. All went extremely smooth from beginning to end. Glenn and Mitch were extremely accommodating, careful and exact in handling and placing the piano. I highly recommend Sett movers.
17:31 09 Apr 22
I and my wife have had to move several times in the last two years and every time the Sett crew showed up on time, were professional clean and fast, i’ve had almost the same crew every time,Dave W.,Nick P.,Paul,Jack,and Castro. They are friendly and certainly know their business,The price is more than fair and I would recommend this company to anyone. In this day and age it’s very hard to find a business that puts you first…and thank you Tara also RCK
14:00 09 Apr 22
I would be remiss if I didn't mention Sett's staff: 2 Apr 2022, like a military operation, called, arrived, loaded, told to go; they'll handle storage closure, swept out and provided key for me, unloaded, took serious care as to my wife's concerns as to placement of boxes, furniture, etc., and newly constructed house.Sett is the complete team-thank you again I do appreciate you-Glenn, Rich, Dave W. and the ever social Jack-hope you enjoyed the Seaside parade-like I knew this nice guy all my life. Tara is the first one to offer my military discount and I do appreciate her for that as well as Steve. Class act... I will always use them, even for small jobs, I trust them that much.Stop reading this and hire these fine folks-second to none.....Best DBMs.Tara and Mr. Steve are just professional, socially skilled and address all need based issues seamlessly. I'm a veteran, moved a many, these folks should simply do it for the military. I would be remiss if I didn't mention that Ms. Tara is so attention-to-detail, responsive and her ability to appreciate you and your business is so uncommon today. Just use these fine folks..... I thank Sett again. Best regards, DB
00:13 05 Apr 22
Glenn, Mitch, Rich, and Pavez moved my entire 3 bedroom beach bungalow into a 10x10 storage unit in just under 4 hours. Nothing broken, crew was super helpful and careful. Thanks guys!
