Philagorilla Movers, Llc Frequently Asked Questions


Should We Empty the Drawers?

PhilaGorilla Movers, LLC residential moving services are often asked this question.  In fact this question is #1 of PhilaGorilla Movers, LLC frequently asked questions.  When a dresser is full and it is moved that way it puts a lot more stress on all the drawers and small joints.  The stress of the added weight may compromise the stability and safety of a piece of furniture.  When handling the piece or transporting it, lighter furniture will be easier and safer to move for our crews.  


Will You Hoist Furniture?

Many Philadelphia homes have spiral staircases, narrow hallways, or other issues that prevent a piece of furniture from entering a home or reaching an upper floor.  In some cases our teams are able to bring the furniture through a window or over a balcony.  This will be done at the discretion of the crew.  If they feel that it will not be safe for the piece, your home, or themselves they will will refuse to perform the hoist.


Are You Licensed and Insured?

Yes, household goods movers in the Keystone State are required to be licensed by the Public Utility Commission (PA PUC) and must maintain adequate levels of insurance coverage
