How much will the move cost?
The best way to find out is to request a quick quote. If you’re moving in town or within 150 miles of the Cedar Rapids area, we’ll calculate a flat travel fee based on the crew size and distance between our office and the job-sites. We then charge by the hour for the loading and unloading. We strive to make this quote fair and easy to understand. We’ll follow up by email or phone after receiving your information.

Why Spine Moving over the other guys?
The “big-box” moving companies are part of a national network of drivers, so they may not know who the load or delivery crew will be on your move, whether or not your things will get transferred mid-move for the sake of profit, or even when they’ll make delivery until a day or two before they arrive.
When you hire Spine Moving to perform your move, you know that the same experienced, full-time crew who load your possessions in Cedar Rapids will unload your stuff in, say, Atlanta. You know that once your precious cargo is loaded onto our truck it will stay safe and secure for the whole trip. And you know that should you have any questions, or something isn’t quite right, you’ll be working with one of the most honest and ethical small local companies in Iowa, instead of navigating several departments in different corporations spread across the United States.
Our movers and drivers use professional packing and delivery methods to make even the most stressful move near or far seem simple and easy. But what people say makes us truly unique is the local business, boutique touch we bring to every move. We’re a rare thing in the moving world: a homegrown, locally owned, independent, award-winning Iowa City and Cedar Rapids-based moving company that also performs long distance jobs all across the country.
Will you help with packing and storage?
When we say full service moves, we mean it. We offer full packing, crating, and storage services. We’ve got the experience, training, and top-notch materials to keep your irreplaceable and extraordinary value possessions safe and sound on their journey from Cedar Rapids. We can help with as much packing as you would prefer, from just the precious art work hanging on the walls to every knick-knack in the house.
If you’ve got an especially valuable piece of furniture or art, we’re happy to custom crate it for you to make sure it’s extra protected. The rates are based on overall crate dimensions.
And if you’ve got some extra time between your moving dates, we’ll gladly store your belongings in our climate controlled warehouse. Storage charges and associated labor costs are based on shipment weight, and we can pro-rate your charges down to the day.

I’m moving from Cedar Rapids, now what?
If you’re ready to move away from Cedar Rapids, there are a few things that you’re going to want to take into consideration before the big move.
Changing Mailing Address
You’re going to want to officially change your address with the US Postal Service before changing it across the web. You can all set a forwarding address for any mail that might still come to your Cedar Rapids address.
Once your mailing address has been changed with the post office, you’re going to want to update your address with your bank and any institutions who send you monthly bills or statements.
Updating Drivers License/License Plate
You’ll want to make sure that your driver’s license is up to date before you start driving in your new town. Find out how to update your driver’s license and license plates with your new address on the DMV website.
Turning Off Or Transferring Utilities
Turning off your utilities in your Cedar Rapids home is as easy as going on the City of Cedar Rapid’s website. If you’re interested in turning off or transferring your electricity, you’ll have to contact your service provider which is most likely MidAmerican Energy or Alliant Energy.
Whether you’re with Mediacom, CenturyLink, ImOn Communications, or Big Dog TV & Internet, you’ll want to make sure that your service gets turned off in your Cedar Rapids home before you move. Check with your service provider to see if they can continue service in your new location, or if you will have to get set up with a new service provider in your new town.
We’re movers by chance, but also by choice.
