Call Us for Your Last Minute Moving Needs: (800) 226-4663

At Modern Movers, last minute moves are never a problem. Whether you're closing quickly on a new home; shipping possessions from an estate settlement; or left stranded by another moving company, we'll be there for you.

We can schedule your move within 24 hours, in most short notice situations. To provide you an accurate estimate, we make every effort to perform an on-site inspection prior to your move, but depending on your situation, this might not always be possible. Rest assured, however; our highly skilled moving coordinators are experienced in providing fair and thorough estimates of our fees by phone.

As with any move, preparation and organization are crucial to ensuring everything goes smoothly. But if you don't have that luxury, we're always ready to roll up our sleeves and help you pack and move on the same day if you need us!
