How do I Move My Car?
It’s common to need help moving an automobile, especially over the course of a long interstate move. At Wheaton, we’ll make sure your vehicle arrives safely to your destination. We offer in-van service, or the use of a third-party carrier, among other options. If you choose in-van service, your vehicle will be transported on our moving truck along with the rest of your goods. Your Wheaton agent can advise you about which of our options best fit your needs and budget. Please note that there may be a charge for choosing to use a third-party automobile carrier.
How to Move Pianos and Other Specialty Objects
Items like pianos, pool tables, and appliances aren’t just heavy, they’re also delicate. You don’t want them shoved or jostled onto a truck by someone that doesn’t appreciate the care they require. Wheaton’s air-ride trailers are equipped with furniture pads, straps, decking materials, and walkboards to ensure these items are protected and cared for during your move. If you’re moving major appliances (freezers, stoves, etc.), they must be properly disconnected prior to the arrival of the mover. Authorized service firms can disconnect and prepare appliances for transport. Please be sure that refrigerators and freezers are defrosted, cleaned, and dry before the movers arrive. Your local Wheaton agent can help facilitate these services.
