Move Discounts for Veterans

At McGuire Moving & Storage, we are always looking for ways to help our movers in St Louis to keep their total move costs down. We know that moving your lifelong belongings long distance can really add up. Last week we shared about our Move Discounts for Seniors 50 + moving long distance. We also provide Veteran discounts on long distance moves for our movers in St Louis.

Veterans’ Program

McGuire Moving & Storage participates in the Arpin Van Lines’ Veterans’ Program. The Veterans’ Program is designed specifically for those who proudly served our country. This program provides for complimentary products and services, as well as special discounts on long distance moving for movers in St Louis including:

  • A reduction of 20% off of any full valuation declaration.
  • A mini packing kit of up to 15 various size packing boxes (not to include mattress boxes), plus a roll of tape.
  • Guaranteed pickup and delivery dates—subject to a 4,000 pound minimum shipment weight.
  • If storage-in-transit needed, 1 free day for every 2 days paid (excluding the first-day charges)

In order to qualify for the Veterans’ Program, one member of the customer’s household must have served in a branch of the U.S. Military or the U.S. National Guard. A retired Military ID, Form DD214, or a membership card in a military veterans’ organization must be furnished as verification and provided to the agent prior to the signing of an Order for Service.

Taking advantage of our Veteran’s Program if it applies to you, can save you a substantial amount on your long distance moving costs. We are proud of and look forward to serving our US Veterans. If you have any questions or are ready to take advantage of our Veteran’s Program, simple contact us.

Check back next week as McGuire Moving & Storage continues with ways movers in St Louis can save on moving costs.

Move Service Discounts For Seniors

Moving can be expensive. You want to make sure that you are keeping your costs down as you go through the process.  One of the ways we at McGuire Moving & Storage  suggest our St Louis moving customers can  lower their move costs is by lightening the move load and donating and recycling as much as possible before move day. We featured many ideas and resources for donating and recycling in our April blogs in support of National Recycling Month.

There are other ways to save. Did you know that there are often move service discounts offered to special groups? As your affordable St Louis moving company, McGuire Moving & Storage offers money saving discounts to Seniors who are moving long distance. These savings can really add up and get you where you need to be with your move budget.

Seniors 50+ Program

As a proud Arpin agent, McGuire Moving & Storage is pleased to offer the Arpin 50+ Program for our St Louis movers over the age of 50 who are planning a long distance move. Services include:

  • Complimentary Mini Packing Container Kit-Upon request, we will provide you with a “mini” packing container kit at no charge to you. This kit consists of up to 12 various size packing boxes (not to include mattress boxes) plus a roll of tape.
  • Complimentary “First Night” Unpacking Service-We provide you with complimentary “First Night” unpacking at no cost to include: 3 containers of any size (except mattress cartons), 1 dresser mirror carton, and complete unpacking and set up of 2 beds of any size (excludes waterbeds and canopies).
  • Discounted Valuation Protection-Protecting your possessions is a critical part of your move and the chief responsibility of a respectable St Louis moving company. Our 50+ Program also provides a thirty percent (30%) discount off of our Full Replacement Value Protection Coverage (with zero deductible). This represents a considerable savings to our 50+ Program participants.

*Proof of age of one household member moving is required.

Cool Moving Facts This Hot July

Here we are in the middle of the warmest month of the year. It’s a hot July. Movers in St Louis are looking for ways to keep cool and calm as they prepare and carry out their St Louis move. We here at McGuire Moving & Storage do not have control of the weather, but we would like to offer a time out from the heat of the day to offer some COOL moving facts with our movers in  St Louis.

Fact #1-The moving industry took hold in the 1800s surrounding the expansion of the railroad system. The first specialized horse drawn moving wagons were introduced at the turn of the century.

Fact #2-Hiring a local moving company to handle your move can cost less than renting a truck and moving yourself.  At McGuire Moving & Storage, we cover labor, packing, insurance and transportation including gas and tolls. It really adds up when you cover the entire moving process yourself.

Fact #3-According to the US Census Bureau, the average American will move 11.7 times over a life-time. We are proud to report that many of our customers choose us again and again for their moving and storage needs.

Fact #4-43 million Americans move each year. That is the same number of people that enjoyed camping in 2011. That is a lot of movers and campers! Are you camping this summer to stay cool?

Fact #5 According to the Employee Relocation Council, moving is the third most stressful life event following death of a loved one and divorce. At McGuire Moving & Storage, we feel that it doesn’t have to be. We pride ourselves on delivering a stress-free move.

Fact #6-Ok, this one is not a moving fact but we just had to include it! In 1984 President Reagan announced July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of July as National Ice Cream Day. Movers in St Louis, why not take a cool break from all things moving and enjoy an ice cream?

At McGuire Moving & Storage we are dedicated to providing all the support and resources our movers in St Louis need to ensure you keep your cool during your move. Enjoy that ice cream!
