I just got done today with these guys and moved into my new home. Raymond and his team showed up with great attitudes and I watched how each piece was wrapped. At the end they asked if there was anything else they could do. I had someone else come quote the job and after reading the reviews and speaking with John who sold me the job, I was much more at ease at eases with them.. It cost exactly what I was quoted. Thanks John and Raymond and all the guys. I almost forgot Nancy who calls through out the job to see how I was feeling about it. I would use them again without question.

Very impressed with the services received from Davi & Valenti Movers. Our initial contact with John gave us a very good idea of price and work schedule. Good communication throughout the process. Kenny and his crew were exceptional people. They were friendly, efficient and extremely hard-working. Nancy, from their office, checked in during Move-out & Move-in to see how things were progressing. A 5 Star Review from me! Couldn’t have gone any better! Highly recommend.

Made a fair estimate on my move from Florida back to DC. Followed through with the move in a timely manner. Few items were damaged beyond repair. They were friendly and courteous during stressful times. They used Stevens movers and that crew were very professional also. I have moved many times and as moves go this was above average.

I have moved many times over the years. both local and long distance. I was completely satisfied with Davi and Valenti movers. they were always on time and have very fair prices. the men who did the load and unload showed were on time, neatly dressed and professional. William and Tim were all business. they loaded the truck without breaks and turned down my offer to buy lunch. th on the they followed us to our new house and repeated their performance on the offload.they took beds apart and put them backtogether. pur mattresses in protective bags and wrapped all our furniture in blankets and shrink wrapped them. I am happy to say nothing was missing or broken, and we got to sleep in our beds that night.I highly recommend them for any move you have.Philip and Paola HanaburghNorth Fort Myers, Fl.

In 52 years I have moved 14 times and no mover is more effective, willing and cooperative than Davi and Valenti. From the first contact on they were professional, accurate and actually quite pleasant. Davi and Valenti deserve a 10 on a scale of 1 to 5.

We had a very good experience with D&V. They were on time in Bradenton on moving day AND on time with delivery in Vero Beach; within 30 minutes of closing. Joey and J.R. We're very professional and really great people. Joey went out of his way to make us happy and they busted there behinds. The furniture was all very well protected with pads and shrinkwrap. Thank you John, Joey and JR [The Load Master]. One warning however: Be ready to MOVE when they get to you; they do not waste time but still treat your possessions like there own. Pro movers and at a very reasonable price. P.s. If you get yourself ready to MOVE, and help them a little it will get done well an quickly.😀

This was the most amazing group of magicians not movers. I went from a 5k home to a 2500 townhouse with ONLY a circular stairway and there was nothing they could not do. From huge bedroom sets upstairs to a piano, pool table and 20 years worth of stuff nicely divided for storage and delivery. They did not lose anything and everyone was more than helpful making sure all was ok before leaving every day. A weeklong project that could not have been handled more professionally. It was not cheap, neither is my belongings. I got what I paid for and more. Thank you again, especially Mike and John.

Company was very accomodating when my moved date changed at last minute. Price was reasonable and garanteed in writing. Movers were efficient and with the exception of one very disagreeable man, the rest made a difficult day as good as possible. I did have a small bit of damage as men were moving a huge amount of furnishings and trying to work quickly on a very hot day. I would recommend this company and would use them again.

Mike and Walter did an excellent and careful job of moving my furniture from a condo to my new home. All furniture was wrapped in quilted pads or shrink wrapped. They had to negotiate 19 stairs and never bumped a wall or the furniture. Carpets were covered and they disassembled and reassembled all of the beds for me. All work was done within the estimated time and cost. Highly recommended.

Last-Minute Movers

Moving for the First Time?

Sometimes, a move can come out of nowhere and must happen quickly. Unexpected moves can be extremely stressful, so it is essential to partner with a moving company that can help relieve some of that stress for you. When you request a last-minute moving estimate, you will immediately be paired with a moving specialist. They will work with you to get a price estimate and moving plan done quickly so they can put your move on the calendar as soon as possible. Then, your moving specialist will provide you with an Order of Service listing all of your required services with their fees. If scheduling allows, your moving team can be at your home or office as soon as possible to start packing if you’ve requested packing services or start loading your items onto the truck for transport. Your moving crew will list your items and their current condition on the Bill of Lading as they are loaded into the air-cushioned moving van. Once the truck arrives at your final location, your movers will unload your items, checking them off on the Bill of Lading as they go. After your moving team has placed your items to your liking, you will do a final walk-through with the team leader. During the walk-through, you will survey the condition of your items and sign off on the Bill of Lading with the team leader.

How Much Do Moving Companies Charge for Last-Minute or Same-Day Moving Services? Are There Any Extra Fees for Expedited Service?

According to our research, an average local move in Florida averages from $1,000 to $3,000. Depending on how far away your long-distance move is, the average long-distance move from Florida ranges from $2,200 to upwards of $5,000. Based on your individual moving requirements, the cost of your move may very well be above or below that range. However, most moving companies charge an additional fee for expedited moving services. This fee varies widely based on several factors, including how soon you need to move, the availability of moving trucks and moving crew, the amount and weight of items moved, and the distance traveled.

At Davi & Valenti Movers, we understand that time is of the essence during an expedited move. This is why we don’t only provide you with an estimate quickly, but we also are completely transparent with our pricing. While we may charge a little more for last-minute moves, we clearly detail our pricing without any hidden fees. This way, you know exactly what you are paying for upfront before signing on with us so that you can make your decision quickly and efficiently.

Do You Cover My Current Location and Desired Destination?

Almost all moving companies can do both local moves, which are moves within state lines, and long-distance moves, which cross state lines. However, some moving companies only travel up to certain distances, so verify that your moving company can move your belongings to your final destination. It is also important to note that both federal and state laws require moving companies to have a state license when moving in state and a USDOT license for long-distance moves.

Many moving companies are interstate agents of different van lines, such as Wheaton World Wide Moving. Most van lines have hundreds of agents nationwide that partner together to make your long-distance move seamless. Therefore, if the moving company you are looking at is an interstate agent of a nationwide van line, they can move you anywhere in the country.

As an interstate agent of Wheaton World Wide Moving, Davi & Valenti Movers can quickly move you anywhere you need to go nationwide. We are fully licensed and insured, so you can rest assured your move meets all legal requirements and industry standards. We have a State of Florida license (IM #2185), a motor carrier license (MC #87113), and a USDOT license (#2388113). We also operate under Wheaton’s USDOT (#70719) for long-distance moves.

At Davi & Valenti, we are international moving experts specializing in U.S. and Canadian customs. However, international moves take much longer to plan than moves within the United States. Therefore the timeline of “last-minute” international moves is usually longer than the timeline of “last-minute” moves in the United States. Whether you need to move to Canada, South America, Italy, or anywhere in between, we can help facilitate your move anywhere in the world. Check out our International Movers page for more information.

How Quickly Can the Emergency Move Be Completed?

When moving, timing is often a significant concern, particularly for those facing unexpected, last-minute moves. The timeline of a move heavily depends on factors such as move size, the distance involved, and the availability of movers and trucks of the moving company. While the leading companies in the industry make every effort to accommodate rapid relocations, the precise time frame is always a variable contingent on these elements.

For those in the Sarasota and Bradenton areas, Davi & Valenti Movers rises to the occasion, no matter how short the notice. No matter how tight your timeline is, we will give you an accurate timeline estimation and delivery date for your move with your estimate. This way, you will know how quickly your move will be completed, without any disruptions or accidents, before choosing your moving company.

How Will You Ensure My Belongings Are Kept Safe and Undamaged During the Move, Especially When Working on Short Notice?

The success of a professional moving company lies in its ability to keep its customers’ belongings safe and secure throughout the move, no matter how last-minute the move is. Though every moving company has slightly different procedures, it is industry standard to disassemble furniture and wrap furniture and more oversized items in moving blankets to protect them during the move.

Dollies and leverage straps are also commonly used to keep your items safe during your move. No matter how tight your moving timeline is, it is essential for moving companies to follow the procedures above to ensure the safe arrival of your belongings. These pre-loading and loading processes are not something moving companies can skip to save time without negatively impacting the quality of the move.

With Davi & Valenti Movers, the safety of your possessions is non-negotiable. Even when tackling last-minute movers’ challenges, our commitment to top-tier customer service remains unwavering. This is why we include free disassembling and reassembling of all furniture and bulkier items with our moves. Our professional moving crew is highly trained to carefully handle your possessions quickly without compromising the safety of your items. Your relocation specialist and moving crew are happy to answer and address your questions and concerns along the way.

Do You Have the Necessary Equipment and Manpower to Handle My Move, Especially Large Items like Furniture and Appliances?

When considering a moving company, it’s essential to ensure they are equipped to handle all aspects of the move, especially more oversized items. The right equipment and a skilled team are prerequisites for safely transporting heavy furniture and appliances. All moving companies should offer furniture disassembly for loading and transportation and then reassemble the furniture pieces upon arrival at the final destination.

At Davi & Valenti Movers, we’re more than prepared as your last-minute or even same-day mover. In addition to expertly disassembling and reassembling large furniture items, our seasoned crew is proficient in handling bulky items, and our resources are top-notch. From pianos to appliances, there’s no challenge too big. Plus, given our broad range of services, including international moves and specialized tasks like auto transport, you can rest assured that we have the right tools and expertise for every facet of your move.

Are My Items Insured During the Move? If Yes, What Does the Insurance Cover?

In the moving industry, “insurance” during a move is often referred to as moving valuation. It’s a misconception that it’s a default insurance policy. Federal law mandates all moving companies to provide Limited Liability Protection at no additional charge. However, this only offers a compensation of 60 cents per pound for any item damaged or lost during transit. For example, if your 50-pound flat-screen TV were to be lost or damaged during the move under the Limited Liability Protection plan, you would only be compensated $30 for it. However, that is only a fraction of what that flat-screen TV costs, which is why this plan is usually not enough coverage for those with many valuable items.

Since this basic level of coverage does not satisfy the needs of all customers, many moving companies introduce enhanced valuation plans at an additional cost to better protect your high-value items. The most common paid valuation plans are Full Value Protection and Items of Extraordinary Value Declaration. If an item were to sustain damage or get lost during a move under the Full Value Protection level of coverage, the moving company would have to repair, replace, or reimburse you for the affected item’s fair market value.

The Items of Extraordinary Value Declaration protects items valued at $100 or more per pound. These items, such as jewelry, artwork, and electronics, are listed on the declaration, along with their condition and value. This is for your safety and protection, but taking as many of your valuable items as possible during the move is also recommended to avoid potential damages and lost items.

When you partner with Davi & Valenti Movers, you’re selecting a service that understands the worth of your possessions. We proudly offer all the valuation options mentioned above programs, allowing our customers to choose the level of protection that aligns with their needs. Whether it’s the free Limited Liability plan, Full Value Protection, or covering special items like jewelry and antiques, we’re here to offer peace of mind every step of the way.

Do You Offer Packing Services for Last-Minute Moves? If Yes, What Are the Costs Involved?

Access to packing services can be invaluable for those facing a sudden move. Depending on your moving timeline, many moving companies do offer packing services at an additional fee. For a two-bedroom home, packing services typically range from $280 – $1000, while the cost of packing services usually ranges from $1000 – $2500 for a three or four-bedroom home.

However, these prices are extremely variable as they are based on factors such as the amount and weight of items that need to be packed and the size of your home. Some moving companies also charge extra for expedited packing services in last-minute moves.

Davi & Valenti Movers is equipped to handle your last-minute moving needs and is proficient in providing efficient packing services if your moving timeline allows. Our professional packers use specific packing techniques to best protect your items. In addition, we provide top-quality packing supplies with our packing services for no additional cost.
