The movers can handle many common items that are considered "heavy", as detailed below.

How we Define "Heavy"

For the majority of moves we consider an individual item as heavy when the weight exceeds 250 pounds. While weight is a primary consideration, other factors, such as the dimensions and access conditions, are also factors. For example, an armoire may weigh less than 250 pounds, but if its dimensions are bulky and awkward we may categorize it as heavy to ensure it can be moved safely.
