Frequently Asked Questions

When should I call G.E.T. Moving?

We generally ask you to give us as much notice as you can. If you need to move today, we'll do our best to make that happen. If you require a written in-home estimate, you should call at least 7 days to 2 weeks before your move. 

How long does it take G.E.T. Moving to do an in-home estimate?

Usually no more than an hour.

What are my responsibilities?

In brief . . .

  • Be present during the packing of your belongings.
  • Take personal responsibility for jewelry and other high value items.
  • Check and sign the inventory of your belongings. 
  • Ensure that no prohibited items are packed.

So what can or can't I take with me?

Dispose of all flammable items, liquids, foods, and other items that should not be shipped. Anything that can deteriorate should not be shipped. Watch our video and check our list of prohibited items for more information. If you have a question about something, just call us at 903-238-2427. We'll be glad to help.

Anything that's definitely a no-go?

Mainly the things you might expect: drugs, alcohol, flammables, acids, explosives, weapons, ammunition, and important personal documents that you need to keep in your own possession. Shipping certain high value items or collections may require you to purchase extra coverage. 

What about my car?

Most of the time, we can take your car(s), truck, or SUV with the rest of your belongings in the trailer or container. If this is not possible, we can arrange for an alternate method. However, we do not transport cars as part of a regular local move. 

Suppose I pack myself?

Why not? But please be aware of the potential problems. For instance valuation coverage will not pay out on goods packed by their owner unless the exterior of the box is damaged. 

How long will G.E.T. Moving take to pack my goods?

Every home is different, but we can normally pack up a home in 1-2 days.

Can I leave my clothes in their drawers?

As long as the wood or material is sturdy, yes, you can. Just be sure not to leave anything solid that can damage the piece or become damaged itself.
