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:
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
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 👍
11:15 11 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
Glenn, Mitch,Rich,and Dave W we’re tremendous! Smart and professionalGot the job done fast!Thanks so much. Will be calling you againThanks againBrian HanlonIsland Heights
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 used SETT movers and hands down the best crew and experience ever!! The team of Glenn, Mitch, Dave W. and Jack were amazing and Tara was perfect to work with. They were friendly, professional, fun and efficient!!! I will use them again and strongly recommend them!!!
17:54 22 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!
22:38 02 Apr 22
Sett movers were great to work with. I’ve used them for multiple moves and they were professional and very careful with our stuff each time. Making sure all furniture was wrapped securely and handled with care.
14:44 01 Apr 22
If you are looking for top notch movers to make your move, look no further. These guys are awesome! They moved us twice in a span of about 3 months since we had a gap in between our home sale and our new home. They are super professional and do not stand around and are in constant motion. Super careful, we had no damage at all to anything. They professionally wrapped our stuff and unwrapped it. They went above and beyond. I will use them again in a heartbeat. I rarely leave reviews for anything but this was so good in an industry that leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to customer service. They made our moves a breeze. Special shout out to Glenn, Dave W, Dave Z, Mitch, Paul and Jack. Well done!!
16:21 30 Mar 22
Superb customer service. Great attention to detail. You can't go wrong.
13:11 29 Mar 22
We had a very daunting move ahead of us, we had never moved so far before. Tara was kind and responsive and addressed our concerns. When the day came, Glenn, Castro, Mitch, Jack and Nick P were great at packing up our home and everything went smoothly. What a wonderful experience! Thank you!
03:00 24 Mar 22
I have to give Sett Movers two Thumbs up!!! the price was fair and the service was excellent!! Glenn, Dave W. and Jack took extra care in packaging our items for the move. Glenn and Dave W. went the extra mile when completing our move from NJ to SC. They were professional, courteous and truly a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend this company for all your moving needs!!!
19:45 17 Mar 22
John and Castro were swift with their moving. Being extremely careful with our things and listening to our needs. Respectful the Entire time and finished the job quickly but professionally
18:02 05 Feb 22
A wonderful company worth every penny spent. Highly recommended!! Professionals with genuinely good hearts.I hired them to move furniture that was all very cherished, very heavy antiques out of a big house with lots of stairs. I called 19 other moving companies before choosing SETT Movers. 100% the best choice.They worked with me from out of state and made it happen. Even with all the chaos happening, their help made the entire process stress free. They knew how to disassemble what needed to be, wrapped and labeled everything with such care. Everything was so organized. The entire team is amazing. I am forever appreciative. Thank you!!
19:55 04 Feb 22
Had an amazing experience with Sett Movers today. John, Castro, and Paul were an amazing crew. Had a move from Toms River, NJ to Hillsdale, NJ. The crew showed up early, were very professional, were very fast in loading and unloading, explained all matters of the move, and were a pleasure to work with. Would definitely recommend this crew and company to anyone. Absolutely would use again in any future moves.
21:43 03 Feb 22
Everything about our move was WAY beyond our expectations. Moved from NC to NJ and called Tara who was referred by our realtor and she was able to work some serious magic and got us moved with in a week and a half. Extremely professional, extremely helpful, and extremely reasonable and the guys were awesome! Thank you to Glenn, Nick, Castro, Rich, Jack, and Ryan, who did a great job unloading the many boxes we had, and a special thanks to Steve and Tara who did an amazing job from start to finish! I will refer you anyone and everyone I can! I can’t thank you enough!
18:54 03 Feb 22
SETT Movers is wonderful! The teamJohn, Castro, Nick P. and Paul were awesome! They took such good care of all of my things from 2 storage units. A lot of it was valuable and antique. Kudos to this great team of guys and SETT Movers! 😊
21:33 02 Feb 22
My experience with Sett Movers was fantastic from beginning to end. Setting up the moving date was easy and the team was very accommodating. Moving day couldn’t have gone better. John, Castro & Nick P were so efficient, professional, and careful with the items. I would highly recommend using Sett Movers, and now know who to call in the future for my next move!
01:23 26 Jan 22
If you're looking to make a move either within the state or long-distance, I highly recommend SETT Movers! I relocated from New Jersey to South Carolina and the entire move was seamless. Steve and Tara are friendly, professional, and accommodating. They are quick to respond, which I truly appreciated throughout the moving process. Any anxiety I had about the move was quickly alleviated once SETT Movers arrived. The moving crew was highly efficient and organized. All of my items were handled with the utmost care. Each item arrived perfectly and my new place already feels like home. I could not have asked for a better moving experience. If I need to move again in the future, I know that I will be calling SETT Movers!
14:29 05 Jan 22
I really can't say enough Great things about this company. The crew that moved us was excellent. The prices were awesome. They made sure we had a stress free move. Steve and Tara ( owner's) are Rock Stars. This company knows how to treat your belongings and there customers. The gentleman that came out to handle the estimate was also awesome. We did a local move but have a long distance move in March and we will definitely be using them. Thanks SETT!!
18:44 31 Dec 21
I recently had the pleasure of having 2 moves in less then a month. The first was 11/24/21 from old home to new home. John,Mitch,Nick P and Paul did a fantastic job. They were quick, efficient and treated everything with care. Even though it was a long day they were courteous and careful with all of my property.My 2nd move was shorter from storage unit to new home on 12/15/21. Glenn,Mitch and Dave W were courteous, careful and moved everything into the space efficiently so I am able to move around and get the boxs down safely to unpack. They even asked if I needed anything moved around from the first move before they left.Even though it's stressful to move having a great group of movers helps makes it a great experience. Thank you to all
00:50 27 Dec 21
We had a very stressful move but an amazing experience with this company. The crew was incredible, the owner was incredible, the price was amazing but quality and service were not sacrificed.
13:23 21 Dec 21
I hired Sett Movers to move some furniture I purchased from a private home. Glenn and Castro were very professional, careful and courteous. I would highly recommend them.
17:33 20 Dec 21
We were very happy with our total experience. The people who came to move us, Glenn, Mitch, Rich and Dave Z., were very professional, each had a specific job to do and they did their jobs very well. They worked nonstop and they worked very hard. They were personable and respected our things and the house. They really knew their stuff! We were concerned that the house would be damaged - but they were very careful. All our things were moved to a storage facility and we were wondering how the moving truck would be able to fit around the building, but they made it work! We will be using Sett again when we move from storage to our new home in a few weeks.
14:28 21 Nov 21
Wonderful moving experience from the initial phone call to the truck pulling away. John, Castro, Paul and Nick were great considering a really difficult stairway on the delivery end and some less than cooperative used office furniture. Grateful they were able to accommodate our need for and ASAP office move. Everything was as promised and well cared for along the way with only one minor ding to a metal desk drawer. Would highly recommend.
18:12 12 Nov 21
What a fantastic company to work with!!! We have done 2 moves in the past week and the team showed up on time, they were very responsible and careful with our items; quickly loaded our storages. Tara was wonderful and provided us with excellent communication. Very reliable movers! Definitely recommend
19:05 29 Oct 21
I just wanted to take a minute to thank Sett Movers for the incredible job they did for me moving my apartment. They were polite, careful, neat, efficient, and on time. And they did everything they said they would do!Tare and Steve really managed to take a lot of the stress out of moving and set my mind at ease. I would highly recommend them to anyone planning a move.
15:46 19 Oct 21
Tara is an absolute pleasure to work with and a rarity among movers - honest, communicates often and completely delivers on her promise. She and her team have handled both a local and interstate move for me and I continue to recommend them to friends. She understands customer service!Glenn M and Dave W made today’s move so easy and they were on time, efficient and very professional!
02:35 14 Oct 21
Sett movers moved us not once but Twice from Jersey to Florida and back again! John was awesome, and his team came in and worked TOGETHER! For the second move back Mitch and the team were fantastic too! Tara has the patients of a saint, We will always recommend this company. Thank you from The Lauriano Family
15:46 11 Oct 21
I want to start off by saying I NEVER write reviews online. I often will read through others reviews, but I felt strongly enough about Sett Movers that I wanted to share our experience. My family and I were in a really tough spot having to find help moving on short notice, within 10 days. We contacted Sett Movers after receiving one of their post cards in the mail. I spoke with Tara who was the only one out of several other companies we contacted that was willing to help us on such short notice. After setting up the appointment, I had unknowingly underestimated the amount of boxes and items that would need to be moved. What Tara had thought would take one afternoon would actually require over two full days. We were extremely nervous that Sett Movers would not be able to help us, but Tara assured us that they would still be able to help and would move some of their staff around accordingly in order to do so. With everything going on in the world and how poor some customer service has gotten lately, it was so refreshing to find a company willing to go the extra mile to ensure their customers were taken care of no matter what.Glenn, Mitch, David, and Steve were extremely professional and helpful throughout the entire process. They packaged everything in methodical and safe manner. All our stuff made it safe and sound, and we were delighted that they reassembled all the furniture that required disassembly for moving and placed it exactly where it all needed to go, as that was not something we expected. I can honestly say that Sett Movers made a very stressful time for us as easy as possible. We will definitely be contacting them in the future when the time comes and I suggest anyone reading this to do the same.Thank you Glenn, Mitch, David, Steve, and Tara for your professionalism and courtesy! We look forward to speaking with you all in the future when your services are required again!
