Safebound covers every type of move. Here’s a closer look at each service and what is available:
Safebound is based out of Florida, so these moves are the most well-known. However, Safebound is able to do local moves in any area across the United States. You can have a 1-on-1 planning meeting to discuss options and what you’ll need to prepare for the move. Safebound includes services such as packing, loading, transporting, unloading, and unpacking within its moving plans.
Long-distance and cross-country moves
Long-distance moves require even more care and planning. Safebound long-distance moving plans include everything a local move does plus a more detailed planning stage, particularly a more calculated transportation route for greater efficiency.
Commercial moves are tricky, especially when you have expensive or valuable equipment to transport. Safebound has worked with some impressive names including Versace, Balenciaga, and Fendi. So that’s a pretty good endorsement for quality of service.
Safebound also has storage warehouses available for both short-term and long-term storage. The storage service is full-service, which means Safebound comes to your home or place of business to pick up your belongings, stores them in their warehouse, and delivers the items to you upon request. You can opt for self-packing or professional packing, depending on your needs. Warehouses are climate-controlled and under 24/7 security surveillance.
Safebound uses modern equipment that is DOT-certified, a big deal in the industry. The crew also uses top-quality packing materials for a safer, more reliable move. Safebound also offers additional services such as cleaning, setting up electronic systems, and debris pickup.
Safebound doesn’t publish a specific pricing guide on its website, as is the case with most online movers. Pricing will obviously vary considerably depending on the size of your move (how much stuff you’re moving), how far you are moving (local, long-distance), and the conditions of the move (e.g. first floor, tenth floor, specialty items, etc.). So Safebound doesn’t want to give you an inaccurate estimate based on a generic scenario. Instead, you can get a free price quote from the company and make your decision according to a relevant figure. What’s great about Safebound is that it offers a virtual tour estimate. This means that it can remotely assess the quantity of belongings you are moving (over the computer) and give you a price quote based on that. This is instead of visiting your home and manually assessing the situation.
Moving costs can range from around $1,200 to up to $6,500 or more depending on all the factors involved. Safebound is known to be accurate with its pricing quotes which removes concern about being informed of additional costs at a later stage. In fact, according to real user reviews and testimonials, Safebound stuck with the quoted price down to the last dollar the vast majority of the time.
As mentioned, Safebound will sit with you to discuss your options and customize a plan based on your needs. Here’s a general overview of the moving process:
Fill out the form online (it takes about a minute)
Speak to a representative who’ll discuss your options
Arrange a virtual tour of your belongings and give you an estimate
Close on a price, set up a moving date, and finalize any other details
Safebound will arrive on the day to help you pack up (if that’s part of your plan), move your belongings, and help you unload and set up your new home (again, if part of your plan).
Safebound is proud of its equipment. It uses the highest standards in the industry and keeps both equipment and crew up to date.
You can reach a Safebound customer service rep via phone or email. There’s no live chat option unfortunately. In terms of valuation, Safebound has 2 options:
1) A basic level that comes with every move. This covers up to 60% of the value of items.
2) Alternatively, Safebound also has a Full Value Protection plan. This will cover the entire value of your shipment in the event that items are lost or damaged.

“I had a great experience with Safebound Moving during my recent move to West Palm Beach. The crew couldn’t have been nicer. They loaded my boxes and furniture in the 10 degree weather up in Maine and everything was waiting for me 6 weeks later when I finally made it down to Florida. Thanks guys!” - Matthew Plianites
“These guys were great! Would recommend them highly. Great people who know what they’re doing! They were on time, worked hard, took great care in moving our pool table, & presented a well received integrity. You need something moved contact them & they’ll get it done.” Boyd Emanuel
