Having the right kind of packing boxes can make a world of difference on moving day. It’s probably not surprising to hear that having small, medium, and large boxes is necessary. However, it’s also extremely helpful to have specialty boxes like wardrobe and dish boxes. Learn more about how to pack like a pro!
The best way to protect your flooring during your next move is to cover it. You can cover your floors with linens like towels, sheets, or blankets, broken down cardboard boxes, or with commercial floor coverings. Other ways to protect your floors during a move is to never drag your furniture; use a rubber-wheeled dolly to move your belongings. Learn more!

What People are Saying About Bekins
This was our first move by a professional moving company and it turned out to be perfect in every way. O’Brien Moving and Storage was our local contact team and they were amazing. The entire process from beginning to end was professional, on time, on quote, and our possessions were expertly packed, stored, and delivered in perfect condition. Communications with both O’Brien’s and Bekins was efficient, courteous, and timely. My husband and I cannot say enough about what a great experience this was and we highly recommend both O’Brien’s Moving and Storage and Bekins. The two companies provide the best customer service we’ve ever experienced.
The team from St. George, Utah is fabulous. Jake, Whitney, Greg were the leads and we wish we could always work with people like them in any undertaking. They cared about how our move went, they listened to us, they did what they said they would. We appreciate them
The driver and his two helpers arrived early in the morning and completed the truck loading in 3 hours, much less than I expected given the packing involved of items we could not physically pack ourselves. They all worked very hard and fast and clearly had the experience to do the job in the most efficient way. I was extremely impressed and would recommend Bekins (Wheaton) highly.
I am thankful for their work which helped make the difficult process of moving to a new home in a new state a little easier.
We had a smooth and professional experience with Bekins. From the initial contact through delivery, the team was responsive and helpful. Our quote was fair and reasonable, and our packing experience was clean and efficient with all items being safely delivered for our out-of-state move. We highly recommend the team of Richard, Rich, and Nick. Thank you!
We hadn’t moved in over 20 years and this time it was an out of state move. The Bekins Van Lines Forman (driver and guy in charge) was Marco and he was fantastic! He (and the crew) were professional, friendly and prompt in moving us out of our home and on the delivery end as well. They were amazingly efficient and conscientious as they packed up and loaded/unloaded the moving truck with all of our “earthly possessions”. The crews on both ends of the process were hard working, friendly and clearly knew what they were doing. I highly recommend Bekins Van Lines and would chose them again if the need were to arise.
We had another cross-country move and Bekins Van Lines did another incredible job! Our family adored our driver, Carlos, and his team. They were SO incredibly kind and helpful. While I was signing paperwork, one of the guys grabbed a broom and swept out my entire empty house. I was floored! He had just spent hours loading our things and then he helped me even more!
Bekins will always be our first call when we move again, Richard and Frank always take such great care of us. It truly makes moving a breeze!
We highly recommend the Bekins organization for moves both local and long distance.
Bekins Van Lines did an exemplary job getting my mom moved from New Jersey to Florida from beginning to end. The price that she was quoted from Bekins could not be matched by any mover, even U Haul. The movers themselves handled everything with care. We could not be more pleased. I highly recommend them!
