Close and tape Boxes - Closed boxes are easier to move, sturdier, and safer for your belongings. Movers can refuse to take open packaging and boxes. Label your boxes so they can be placed in the corresponding areas at the new location.
Books - Use appropriate size boxes for your packed items. Heavy items like books and records should be in smaller boxes. If boxes are to heavy they may need to be repacked.
TVs - The original box is always best for TVs, but if you don’t have it you can purchase TV box kits from many retailers. We move unboxed TVs all the time without issue, but if something were to happen we don’t carry any liability on unboxed TVs.
Electronics - Securely box electronics in the original box if possible. This includes game consoles, stereo components, computers, etc.
Valuables and Jewelry - Remove valuables and jewelry and pack them away in a safe place. You can never be too safe and there is no reason to leave items like this out on moving day. Have a plan on moving day for items of high value.
Lamps - Remove lampshades and lightbulbs from lamps. Lampshades and light bulbs should be boxed due to their fragile nature.
Awkward Items - There are always awkward items that you just can’t box. Gather these awkward items in a certain area together. Pick a corner of the room or maybe the garage. These items should not be fragile, if they are then box them. Think items like umbrellas, folding chairs, and luggage.
Be available - We understand you may have some loose ends to tie up on moving day and might not want to wait around all day for the movers, but don’t go too far and be ready.
Be onsite - Plan to be on site and available to the movers during the move day. The movers may have questions or need direction on where items go, and it can be frustrating if they must stop work to find a customer.
Snacks and Drinks - Movers appreciate when you provide snacks and drinks. They expend a lot of energy during the day so remember it is to your benefit to help keep them hydrated and energized.
Friendliness - The movers are your friends there to help. Yes, they are being paid, but friendliness and respect go along ways and it goes both ways. Treat your movers well and they will do the same.
Don't be shy - Don’t be afraid to let the movers know your expectations or what service you expect. Point out items that have special value to you or where you would like things. If something is off let them know or contact our office. Don’t be shy but don’t be bossy.
Sweaty - Moving is very physical hard work/exercise and we all know what that leads to, sweat! It is unfortunate but on a hot day there is no way around it. Your movers are going to sweat, some more than others, and they may smell a little too.
The movers did a phenomenal job carefully moving all my large furniture. Exceptional service, and I’ll definitely use them again in the future!

Great service, very professional. I appreciate the ease in setting up the move and the communication that I received prior to the move date. I would highly recommend this company.

Dierk & Jamell were fantastic and quick! I moved from a high rise apartment to a new house. They were on time and nothing was damaged in the cross town move! Thank you!!!
18:09 19 May 22
Courteous and efficient! Jamal and John are amazing!
15:37 17 May 22
Hired them for my move from overland park to blue springs. They did an awesome job! All three of the movers were really nice, professional, quick, and careful with everything. The price for the move was fairly priced and overall just had a great experience with them. Will certainly use this company on my next move.
20:09 10 May 22
We booked 2 weeks in advance and they were a pleasure to work with during quoting and came in 50% less than a previous company we had used. Dirk, Jamel (sorry if I spelled wrong) and Charlie were awesome and got us loaded and unloaded in less than 2 hours. Would highly recommend for any move your looking to do!
19:08 30 Apr 22
Dierk and Josh were AMAZING! They were on time, moved everything with care, responsible, fast, and we're the friendliest movers I've ever used. These guys truly live up the company name! Thank you so much!

16:23 09 Apr 22
The movers were friendly and knew exactly what they were doing! I was able to get my things to my new place with no damage, great service!!
18:29 01 Mar 22
We used A Friend With A Truck movers to help move our things into two PODS and then come back about a month later to unload the two PODS. They were very professional, friendly, easy to communicate with, and did a great job. Would highly recommend them!
17:37 01 Mar 22
John and his crew we absolutely wonderful. They were friendly and professional. They made a day that wouldn’t normally be pretty stressful for most people, smooth and a nice transition.
17:33 01 Mar 22
Had a great experience with these movers. They were quick, friendly, and very responsive. Would use again and give to friends/family to use!
15:29 28 Feb 22
good guys great job 👍
05:39 19 Feb 22
The move went very smoothly. The movers (Nick and Issac) were great. They navigated a narrow and corner filled staircase with no problems.All of my items made it into the new place with no damage. There was an initial issue with a billing discrepancy, but that was resolved. If I move in the future, then I will use A Friend With A Truck Movers again.
06:34 02 Jan 22
Great move! My movers were Hasson and BJ. They were professional, polite, and prompt. They worked great together as one team, and got the job done. On my next move, I want Hasson and BJ.
15:27 01 Jan 22
I can’t say enough nice things about this company. Hassan, BJ, Charlie, and Tristan went above and beyond. They were professional, organized, fast, helpful, good, and kind. They showed up exactly on time and gathered everything with such speed and packed it into their truck so carefully.I highly recommend they each get raises because they were truly so courteous, solid, and helpful!!
21:30 29 Dec 21
Hasson and BJ were fantastic, incredibly professional, efficient and friendly. Kudos. Highly recommend.

I had my big move today and was worried all week on how it was going to go. A Friend With A Truck Movers was so awesome! They made it go so easy. The crew they sent was the best! Lucas, Spencer, Tristan, and Vance. They were very professional, knowledgeable, and organized. They took care of my things very well and were very careful. I strongly recommend this company for moving and will definitely use them again.
03:37 19 Dec 21
My experience with this business could not have been better! Tristan and Hasson were absolutely great! They were on time, friendly, professional and quick! They even helped us move some things that we were planning to try to move ourselves. I will be using this company again.
03:50 13 Dec 21
Lucas & Issac arrived when expected. They were friendly, fast, efficient, and professional. The job was completed in less time than expected. I would definitely hire them again...worth every penny. Thank you Lucas & Issac.

Outstanding job today by Isaac and Justin! Took great care in moving my things and worked very fast. Don't dilly-dally around like some movers. When new house is ready in few weeks, we'll be calling them again. Highly recommend A Friend With A Truck moving company. Melodie

BJ, Hasson, and Lucas did an awesome job. Responsive, quick, and very polite. Will be calling them again for next move.
02:08 20 Nov 21
When I scheduled my move I needed help asap, and they definitely delivered. I was moved by Tristan and Charlie who were very professional, fast workers, and friendly. They took great care of my things, didnt break anything, and got my move done by the estimate time even though I underestimated my job accidentally. If I ever move again I'll be going through this company and requesting these two. Thanks guys.
04:34 16 Nov 21
They were very professional and were careful with all my items. Their price is also very good, I won't mind using this company again.
13:18 15 Nov 21
These guys are the real deal. Extremely professional and careful with your belongings. Spencer, Jamell, and Vance went above and beyond to make sure we had a fantastic moving experience. Everything went perfectly smooth and they were able to get us moved in two hours! I would recommend this company to anyone in KC who needs to hire movers.
03:16 14 Nov 21
A great experience from start to finish. Quick and accurate quote. Charlie and Dan were so nice and very helpful. Thank you!

I contacted A Friend with a Truck regarding my moving, they were very responsive on getting back to me and gave me a quote that I couldn't turn down, the best one I had out of 3 different companies. There were at my house promptly at 800am as they said they would be and they worked quickly and efficiently and were all done with my move in less than 3 hours. I had Isaac, Charlie and Alex, all were nice guys and hard workers. Thank You !
15:44 22 Oct 21
HASSAN, DAN, CHARLES ARE THEEEEEE B-E-S-T Team EVER! Thank You so very much!!!! Highly recommend!
18:25 21 Oct 21
BJ, and his team were absolutely amazing. They got off to a late start due to a previous job running over, but they kept in contact, and were wonderful, and prepared when they got there. I had concerns on if what was going to be moved would fit into the area I had designated for it, but they made it happen efficiently and safely. I will use them for any future moves personally and professionally. Thank you for making this so easy:)
21:25 17 Oct 21
Wow! Moving is so much less stressful using these guys! Our movers, Jamell, Vance, and Alex, were outstanding! They were hard workers, professional and courteous in every way. From start to finish, it was an easy process. Highly recommend!
