Need an Auburn moving company? Our comprehensive residential moving services include, but are not limited to:
Take all factors into consideration when deciding on the best time for you to move. Keep in mind, however, that the summer months (mid-May to mid-September) and the beginning and end of each month (regardless of the season) are particularly busy for moving companies and may require more flexibility and advanced scheduling.
Ask your neighbors, friends, coworkers and family members if they can make recommendations. Investigate each of the movers you select with the Better Business Bureau. Good service is the best measure of a good mover.
Try to provide moving companies with as much notice as possible, especially if you are moving during the summer months. We recommend at least four to six weeks before your desired moving date. This will increase your likelihood of securing the pickup and delivery dates you desire.
The relocation consultant will arrive at your home to perform a visual survey of your items. The consultant must be able to clearly see what is being moved in order to provide you with an accurate estimate. If you know of items that are out of view or will be eliminated, be certain to point them out to the consultant. Once the visual survey is completed, the consultant will calculate the weight, packing cost and any other charges related to your move.

The cities of Auburn and Opelika have a combined population of just over 153,000. Officially known as the Auburn-Opelika, Alabama Metropolitan Statistical Area, our cities have managed to retain a small-town feel with amenities you could only ever associate with much larger cities. In fact, Auburn has the motto of “The Loveliest Village on The Plains”, and that’s a pretty accurate description.
The Auburn Metropolitan area is one of the fastest growing in the country and is also one of the most educated regions in the United States. Our cities have continued to grow and develop, even during the last recession. Why? We have a highly educated workforce, solid infrastructure and a diverse employment base combined with an unemployment rate of just over 5 percent. Over $1 billion has been invested in commercial development here since 1994, which continues to pay dividends in the economic growth of the city.
The people living here understand the value of education and knowledge, which is why more than 60% of local graduates hold a bachelor’s degree or higher. Many of the schools in our public education system are recognized as some of the very best not only in the state of Alabama, but across the United States. For example, Auburn University ranks in the top 60 public universities in the United States by Forbes.
Employment in Auburn and Opelika is a mix of commercial and non-commercial, with our largest employers including Alabama Power Company, Auburn University, Wal-Mart, Mando American Corporation, Briggs and Stratton, Daewon America and a number of hospitals and healthcare facilities in the region.
Real estate here is also very affordable, with a modest home costing around $230,000. An average family income of $95,000 also means that families living here enjoy an enviable lifestyle – they can afford to buy a home and still have disposable income left at the end of each month. For those of you who have worked your entire lives and are now ready to slow down, you might be surprised to hear that Auburn and Opelika have been voted as some of the best places to retire anywhere in the country. We’re not the least bit surprised however – we know just how friendly and welcoming the citizens of our fair cities are.
We also have tremendous physicians at the 340-bed East Alabama Medical Centre, which cares for 150,000 patients each year and offers a broad range of services from oncology (cancer treatments) through to assisted living.
Auburn and Opelika are connected to the rest of the nation and the rest of the world thanks to our robust and growing infrastructure. This includes two international airports: Jackson Atlanta International Airport and Shuttlesworth International Airport. International shipping is also catered from three major ports in the region: the Port of Mobile, the Port of Savannah and the Port of Brunswick.
The best is yet to come for the cities of Auburn and Opelika, which is exactly why so many people now want to relocate here, either for employment opportunities, or simply to retire in a peaceful place they can call home.
