    Home Residential Movers

    Once you’ve decided to move out of your home, you face a daunting task: getting everything safely packed up and transported to your new home.

    Or maybe things have been going very well with your partner, and you’re finally ready to take the plunge into cohabitation.

You’re terrified, though, that your combined efforts won’t be enough to get your dresser up the stairs and into the bedroom…

    Or maybe you’ve found a charming house in the suburbs where you can finally start your family. It’d take quite a few trips in your SUV and your husband’s sedan, though, to deliver even a fraction of your things from your old apartment to your new home…

    Internal Movers Service

    Although so many of our services revolve around helping you move from one place to another, we know that life calls for many types of change—and occasionally smaller actions are called for. Sometimes, the move you have planned is just of the furniture inside your living room.

    You could spend all day clearing the shelves of your bookcases, dragging your sofa across the wood floors, lifting the side tables and walking them to their new locations–and end up exhausted, sore, and still needing to tweak and turn your chairs and lamps to fit just right.

    You could, in other words, spend all day on what feels as if it should have been a simple task–and then need a couple of aspirin, an ice pack, and a chiropractic visit to recuperate fully.

    Or you could call in Bates Moving & Storage’s expert team of movers and get the job done quickly, effortlessly, and with absolutely no discomfort.

    If you need a hand with rearranging your couches and bookshelves, switching your children’s bedrooms, or any other internal moves, Bates Moving & Storage has you covered. No job is too small–so don’t strain your back dragging your loveseat or sprain your ankle tripping over the coffee table. We’d be happy to help you move all your items, bulky or small, at a fair price.

    Plus, if you find that your old settee no longer shines in its new spot (but you just can’t let it go), you can rely on our storage services to keep it safe and sound until the next round of redecoration opens up a new place for it to, once again, light up the room.

Our service capitalizes on open communication to best keep you informed on how your move is progressing and to allow for you to freely contact us with any questions or concerns you may encounter; quality service from our highly-trained and vetted staff (we never use outside contractors); prompt delivery; and pricing transparency.

    We know government agencies have better things to focus on than moving logistics, so Bates Moving & Storage makes efficiency and professionalism paramount. It’s our way of supporting the important work you do for us all.


    Bates Moving & Storage provides packing materials for those who need quality materials and expertise. Yes, you can buy packing material from big box stores, but ours come with expert advice, support, and guidance. Let us know your requirements and needs, and we’ll let you know how many boxes, and what sorts of other materials you should use for maximizing safety, space, while ensuring a smooth move.

    Moving Apartment / Condos

    Relocating from or to an apartment or condo can require a different type of care than moving in or out of a home. With a safety deposit at stake, extra care is needed to ensure your move doesn’t damage walls, doors, or floors. Navigating stairs and narrow hallways can be a headache, too, as you wonder how you got your bed frame into your apartment in the first place. Last of all, you’ll have a strict schedule to adhere to if you want to avoid all hassle with your building management!

    We’re dedicated to helping our clients move without any loss or damage to either their items or their living spaces. We respect your items and your money and do what’s necessary to prepare your furniture, kitchen supplies, and other items for a safe move–whether that means boxing, wrapping, or securing items.

    Many apartments and condos lay at the end of a hallway or up a set of stairs. If you’re worried about getting your couch up and down the stairs, we’re ready to help. We’ll move all your bulky, heavy furniture for you, from bed frames to recliners. Moving is a challenge enough; let us do the heavy lifting for you–and then deliver them to your new home.

    Time is of the essence when you’ve told your management company that you intend to leave. We’re dedicated to promptness and punctuality in all steps of the moving process, so we can help you get out of your old unit and into your new one swiftly and avoid any extra fees.

    Mover Storage

    Sometimes you may need a place to put some things after ending a lease or selling a home and before moving into your new space. You’re welcome at your mom’s house for a week, but your vinyl collection and living room set may not be… And you’re not quite ready to auction off your favorite albums like you promised your wife you would one day…

    Or perhaps you may need to vacate a room or two while remodeling and need a short-term space to store your possessions. You could stack them all in your bedroom, but things already feel a little cramped, and you hate the feeling of clutter…

    Or maybe you found a new apartment for the upcoming year but know that you’re going to have a gap between move-out and move-in dates that leaves all your stuff homeless for a while… Last time, you put it in a friend’s basement, but you’re pretty sure that ended up with you losing a box or two, and the water damage to your books when their pipes leaked was a little upsetting…

    These scenarios can be scary, but Bates Moving & Storage is always able to help. It doesn’t matter your situation; we provide world-class storage solutions for all. Your possessions, even fragile or valuable ones, will stay safe. So don’t worry about your records, or your furniture, or your library-in-the-making. Don’t worry about pests, humidity, theft, or misplacement. While your items are with us, we take care of all those things.

    Just as with our local and long-distance moving services, our dedication to customer service and careful handling of all items in our care set us apart in the Delmarva area. We will always treat you and your possessions with regard and care, making sure that your items are safe and you feel satisfied, heard, and respected.
