Services Covered 

Safeway is a long-distance moving company that offers professional-grade moves across the country. You can also have your belongings moved to Canada if that piques your interest. Safeway has auto transportation as well, in case you have a car or motorcycle to move. 

Safeway also covers local moves if you are just going a short distance and adjusts the prices accordingly. All moves are covered with the company’s $1 million insurance policy, and Safeway movers use strong, protective blankets to wrap all of the furniture items.

In addition to short and long-distance moves, Safeway has another convenient feature: storage. In fact, you’ll get 30-days of storage for free with your move price quote.

Pricing

Price quotes will vary depending on the distance you are moving, how much stuff you want moved, when you are moving, and the locations you’re moving from or to. One downside is that you need to speak to a rep directly in order to get a price quote. That’s a little annoying since you might want to have some pricing information online to use for comparison shopping. 

But you’ll get a customized quote based on your move details. And once Safeway gives you a price quote, it’s locked in. This means that the price won’t change when you go to close. Best of all, the quote is all-inclusive. Safeway covers all your bases, including a ton of things that other moving companies don’t give you or charge extra for. 

Here’s a sample of quotes real customers received for their moves from Safeway:

Move Size
Move locations 
Cost of Services
2 bedroom home
Illinois to Louisiana
$4,167
3 bedroom home
New Jersey to Michigan
$6,500
4 bedroom home
Ohio to Florida
$3,902
3 bedroom home
Connecticut to Arizona
$3,344

In addition to the moves, your price quote includes a lot of extras like:

  • Loading and unloading your belongings
  • Full-service packing
  • Transportation of fragile belongings (for example, pianos)
  • Taking apart bulky furniture items
  • Putting furniture items back together for you

Additionally, Safeway also covers all taxes, tolls, mileage, and fuel that are needed during the move. So you don’t end up paying for a lot of extras. The price includes everything, plus labor and transportation charges. 

Safeway’s quote gives you basic liability coverage, but you can purchase additional coverage if you want to play it safe. 

Moving Process

The Safeway moving process is pretty straightforward. Here’s what that looks like:

  • You’ll get in touch with Safeway for a price 
  • They’ll assess your belongings and give you a quote
  • Agree to the quote, enter payment details, and finalize the move details

On the day of the move, Safeway pro movers will arrive at your home or business. They’ll pack up all of your belongings, including padding the fragile items and furniture with protective padding, disassemble the larger items, and pack up your other belongings onto secure moving trucks.

At the other end, Safeway movers will also unpack and reassemble your home for you. 

Fleet Details

Safeway has a large fleet of moving trucks, over 100 in total across the country. Trucks are manned by professional movers who are insured and licensed.

Testimonials 

“I found a gem with Safeway Moving. They were the best price and the highest rated company out of all the companies that called. They were professional and understanding. Some of the other ones called me over and over asking if I was ready to make a deposit which turned me off. Safeway gave me time and they called only when I asked for a call. I like being able to think before making a decision which costs me thousands of dollars and they respected that. I also read many good things from past customers. I got my delivery in 1 week and nothing was missing. Satisfied with the quality of work they provided and I would use them again.” Michael Taylor

“Thrilled! This team right here was absolutely amazing and so professional. I couldn't be any happier. I searched and looked all over the internet for a company that could suit all my moving needs. It seemed complex to my family and I but not at all to Safeway. They made me feel as if there was no issue whatsoever handling what we needed done. Everything went so smooth and I couldn't recommend a better moving company. They fulfilled all ur relocation needs. Thank you Safeway.” Sean Gule

“Thumbs up!! From the initial consultation, quote, and follow up and day-of service, I was highly satisfied. The entire experience was quick and painless. If we ever need to move again, we will be sure to contact Safeway Moving Systems, and will not hesitate to refer them to others.” William James

Bottom Line

Safeway is as professional as they come. The movers are all highly-trained and licensed workers. The company has positive reviews across the web. And Safeway Moving System has steadily built a name for itself in the industry. With fair pricing that includes loads of extras like packing, padding, and storage, Safeway is certainly a great option for long and short-distance moves anywhere in the US or Canada.
