Be wary of any mover that does not have this certification, as it was designed to protect the public from the predatory practices of “rogue movers.”

Both. Whether you need to move locally within your own community, out of state, or out of the country, Ace Relocation can take you there.

How much does it cost to move with Ace?
The price for interstate (moves across state lines) and long-distance intrastate moves are calculated using the weight of your belongings and the distance they are traveling. Additional charges may apply for extra trucks, crews, special needs, or storage. Local moves (within about 50 miles) are calculated by the number of men and trucks and the number of hours it will take to complete the move.

We will provide a more precise estimate after walking through your home and assessing what will be packed and transported.

Ace Relocation is an award-winning moving company that handles your goods with the best of care. However, for complete peace of mind, take a look at our valuation options. They’re not technically insurance, but they will provide coverage to repair or replace items that are lost, damaged, or destroyed while moving.
Am I protected against loss or damage while my belongings are in transit?
Minimal protection is automatically provided at 60 cents per pound, while Full Value Protection (FVP) ensures that your items will be repaired or replaced if they’re lost or damaged.
What is your claims process?
