White glove moving services are a term you may hear thrown around a lot in the moving industry, but it may not always be clear what it actually means. To put it simply, white glove moving refers to services that cater to people with expensive, delicate, or valuable items that prefer a more careful and attentive moving option. Customers that choose white glove services, for example, may have furniture pieces made of glass or antique wood that are particular susceptible to breaking during the moving process. In this article, we’ll explain some of the finer details of white glove moving, as well as how it differs from standard moving services.
White glove moving can also overlap with what you may know as “full service moving.” Services that fall under the banner of full service moving can include things like packing and unpacking help, or furniture disassembly and reassembly, all of which are often a part of white glove moving as well. Additionally, white glove movers are often called upon to help with staging houses for real estate agents, or the redesign of a particular room in a home if the owners prefer it be done by professionals. White glove movers can do all of the things a full service moving company can, but with a more delicate touch to ensure that furniture, walls, stairwells, and other parts of the house are not damaged during the process.

As you read the paragraphs above, you may be inclined to wonder what the actual difference is between standard moving companies and white glove movers. It’s a fair question and the answer definitely goes beyond being more careful and handling items of higher value, though that is definitely part of the job. Another aspect of white glove moving is the equipment we use, right down to the type of moving truck. For example, a normal moving company would put your belongings in a moving truck and do their best to protect them (ideally) from damage during the drive to your new home. A white glove mover, by contrast would have a truck with a padded interior to protect against the potential for damage due to shifting furniture. Additionally, they may even have a temperature controlled truck so that extreme temperatures aren’t a concern when you’re moving furniture that could be affected by excessive heat. Crating is also a service that can be provided by white glove movers in order to protect anything that needs an extra level of care when moving, such as a pricey mirror or a piece of fine art that needs to be guarded from the possible contact from other items as you move.
