After moving in you may have a large number of moving boxes (we provide new and used boxes here if you need them). Unless using a dumpster, St. Peters requires all boxes to be broken down and bundled together... if they are filled with rubbish items and left out on the curb, they will not be picked up. So make sure to dissassemble them!

Code Regulations and Permits

St. Peters resides in the jurisdiction of St. Charles County and follows similar guidelines. Here’s a link to the searchable city ordinances. In general, standard rules on trucks and vans apply.

Regulations on portable storage units: If you need a portable storage container as part of your move, we have them available and ready for you.

Verified Customer Review

“I was impressed with all of the personnel related to the move. Donna Howell was knowledgeable and efficient... also very pleasant. My movers, Mike and Gary, were incredible. Everything was carefully protected and they handled everything with great skill. I couldn't believe how well the two of them were able to move my 7'5" grand piano, a job that usually requires 4 men (and they usually struggle!). Everything arrived safely - nothing damaged, lost, or misplaced. Great job.”
