Peter Clarke, owner and founder of ANC Movers
We are Washington state’s ONLY Black minority-owned moving company.
Starting my business in 1998 changed my life. It has been a dream come true and I feel it’s my responsibility to give back to the community that has given so much to me. I actively support many great local causes, including Habitat for Humanity and Girlfriends Run For a Cure.
Moving is more than my business, it’s my purpose.
Your residential move from start to finish
Choosing residential movers in Vancouver, WA
When deciding on a residential moving company, start by asking your friends and neighbors who they used for their recent moves. They’ll be one of the best sources for up-to-date info on which residential movers are doing a great job in the Vancouver area.
Make sure to talk to a few different moving companies and get estimates in writing and make sure you understand all of the costs. Make sure to see their permit from the Utilities and Transportation Commission (UTC). Finding a residential moving company you feel comfortable with and can trust will make your residential move easier.
Scheduling your move
Sometimes you can’t plan a move months in advance. But if your schedule allows it, you’ll have a bit more flexibility if you can move during the spring, fall, or winter. That’s because summer is when most people move and it’s a busy time for residential movers. But no matter when you’re moving, ANC movers would love to help you!
Don’t forget to check local event calendars, too. You don’t want to move on the day of a big parade or marathon when roads may be closed.
Packing and labeling tips
If you’re handling the packing yourself, start earlier than you think you should! Last-minute packing on the day of the move really adds to the stress.
Make sure to use boxes that are designed for moving computers, TVs, and other fragile items. And don’t forget to label boxes! Use a big permanent marker and label boxes with their contents AND where they should end up in your new home.
The day of your move
Relax! With thorough planning and a great residential moving company, the day of the move really can be stress free. Get an early start and you’ll be able to enjoy your first night in your new home without any worries on your mind.
