Testimonials From Our Happy Customers


Pot plants are considered fragile items in terms of moving as they are susceptible to damage in transit and take up significant space in a truck as they cannot be stacked. Too many pot plants can impact the space needed to fit in your other items. You may want to make your own arrangement for pot plants or ensure the office knows if you have a large amount of plants so we can work with you to make their transportation a smooth process. Please, for the safety of our staff, also ensure there are no infestations of insects on your plants. We will not move plants when there is an obvious risk to our staff of sting or scratch.
