Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. How do you move heavy and bulky furniture items?

We are furniture removal experts.

We have a range of equipment and tools like moving dolly, slider, forearm forklift, ropes, and ramps to move furniture items safely and efficiently.

Q2. Do I need to arrange for packing supplies?

No. Our local moving company in Kent, WA provides everything from bubble wrap to moving containers, packing paper, cushioning material, and other supplies to help you pack small to large household items effectively.

Having said that, if you have old packing materials, we can also use that in addition to ours.

Q3. How much time does it take to pack a house?

All homes are different and thus the packing time varies depending on that. It can take 1-2 days of studio apartments, 2-3 days for 2 bedrooms and nearly a week for a lavish residential property.

The good news is that you do not have to do it at all. Hire Academy movers to pack your belongings and get you ready for the move.

Q4. How much do you charge for local moving in Kent?

The moving cost mainly depends on the following factors:

Location: The cost will multiply depending on whether moving across town or street.

Distance: Larger the moving distance the higher the cost will go.

Weight: Moving heavy and big furniture items like a piano can cost you a bit more than regular household stuff 

The number of items: It will cost you more if there are more items to relocate.

The moving day: The moving cost is nominally high if you are moving during peak times like weekends.

What They Say About Academy Movers

THANK YOU SO SO SO SO SO SO VERY MUCH!!!!! Oh man- I have NEVER had a move like that before. It was absolutely unreal, I was completely blown away. I am amazed at the lightning speed the guys worked, and while keeping everything in perfect condition! I didn’t know that was even humanly possible to do a move like that! Leaving raving reviews all over the place is on my to do list just as soon as I’m able.


Jordan and the crew from John Volken Academy Movers did an exceptional job for us . The were on time , careful and very pleasant to work with us . The move was complicated as we were moving furniture from two locations to one locations (a two story home) . I would recommend John Volken Academy Movers for your next move .


This is by far THE BEST moving company I have ever hired. For the same rate as most moving companies, you get 3 guys instead of 2. That’s not the best part though. The best part is the 3 gentleman who came were THE MOST kind, polite, helpful, warm, energetic, communicative, hardworking and understanding.


John Volken Academy Movers are fantastic! They are timely, great communicators, ensure you completely understand the logistics (contracts, insurance, etc) and answer all questions you may have. My personal experience was over the top amazing.
