Estes SureMove

Moving company Estes SureMove is a division of Estes Express Lines that provides out-of-town household moving services to the general public. SureMove offers an economical alternative to both full-service household moving carriers and traditional moving truck rental. Company works like U-Pack or PODS. Customers do their own packing, loading and unloading in a moving trailer and Estes does the driving. Founded in 1931 by W.W. Estes and still owned by the Estes family, the company has grown from a small, local freight transportation service into one of the largest provider in the moving industry.

How moving works in their words:

  1. After you schedule a move, we bring one of Estes’ 28-foot rental trailers to your residence, along with a security partition and a ramp. It’s okay if you need either more or less space on the rental trailer than your original estimation—you only pay for the space you use.
  2. You have 3 days to load the rental trailer before we pick it up. Just as you would if you were renting a truck for moving, be sure to brace your things tightly using tie-down ratchet straps, bungee cords or rope. Also, wedge softer items (pillows and other bedding in a large plastic bag) between boxes and furniture to fill in the gaps and keep your belongings from shifting while the moving truck is in motion.
  3. Once you have all of your belongings loaded in the nose of the rental trailer (right behind the cab), you install the simple-to-use partition to keep your freight separate and secure.
  4. When the rental trailer arrives at our regional service center nearest your new location, we contact you and schedule a time to bring the rental trailer to your new residence
  5. You have 3 days to unload your freight before we come and pick up the empty rental trailer.
