About Sarasota, FL

Sarasota, located in Sarasota County, is found along the southwestern coast of Florida. The region is known for its impressive culture, environmental amenities, resorts, and the Sarasota School of Architecture, amongst other key locations that bring in visitors from across the nation. The city is deeply connected to the Ringling family of circus fame, who invested heavily into the architecture of the immediate area, including the development of the keys and the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art. Thanks to these developments, the area is predominantly Italian architecture.

Each year, in an effort to remember the historical culture of the area and bring in tourists, the Sarasota Chalk Festival takes place. In 2010, the festival became the first street painting festival to take place in the United States of America. This is the type of art and culture the city has become known for.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I pack my own belongings?

Of course it is fully possible for you to pack your own belongings while moving to a new home or office. A Bekins agent will offer you suggestions to pack everything easier and more efficiently, and we can also offer an entire line of packing material at a competitive rate so you have everything you need for your items. Packing yourself does allow you some freedom as to what needs to be packed first or last, for example. However, it is hard, tiring work that will leave you rather uncomfortable and exhausted.

It is recommended to use a professional mover, as these trained professionals handle your household items with care and attention. By hiring a professional mover, you also gain the ability to take advantage of valuation coverage, just in case anything goes wrong along the way. Unfortunately, accidents can and do happen during a move, especially a long distance move. With a professional moving company handling the packing and unloading, you are covered should anything go wrong at any point.

What do I do about my car?

When it comes to a move, especially a long distance move that requires the efforts of a large moving truck, most homeowners are unsure of what to do with their vehicle. While some may be able to simply drive the vehicle to their new destination, other people have their hands full and cannot spare the manpower to transport their car or truck. This is where Bekins Moving Solutions can come in and shine. We currently offer moving services for a single vehicle or even an entire fleet of vehicles, depending on what you may need. This is perfect if you run a business that relies on vehicles to offer service to your customers.

The pricing for moving a vehicle will depend on the type/size of the vehicle itself and how far it will need to be transported. A moving consultant can go over all of the details with you during your consultation visit.

What is valuation?

Valuation is optional protection you can purchase for your items. Through this protection, the mover will be responsible for the repair, replacement or replacement value of any items lost or damaged. There are different plans with different deductibles and coverage. These will be explained to you by your mover. One of the great benefits of valuation is that making a claim has no financial impact. Certain homeowner’s insurance will cover damage from moving, but filing a claim with them has the potential to increase your premiums.

What time will the crew arrive?

The time the crew will arrive will be discussed when you book your move. Your moving consultant will do their best to take your schedule into account when establishing a start time for your move.

Why is there a delivery spread?

We provide a delivery spread instead of an exact delivery date to plan for unpredictable services. No matter how good our drivers are at their job, there’s nothing they can do about a sudden car accident that backs up traffic or crazy weather that makes travel dangerous. We find providing a delivery spread that takes these uncertain circumstances into account is better for customers than giving out an exact date we may or may not be able to deliver on.

Do you move out of state?

Of course! We are one of the largest agents of Bekins Van Lines. Through their network of moving companies, we can not only move you out of state, we can move you to anywhere in the country!

Bekins salesperson agent, John Renkawitz , was most helpful from the affordable rate to mover to availability to answering questions.He always responded in a timely manner. The mover/driver Francis, was very professional and managed local help well. A very positive experience.

I simply cannot say enough good things about Jack Skillin the driver. Jack was fantastic in all respects-- personable, professional, seeing that everything was loaded and unloaded with care, as well as keeping me informed on the move and prompt delivery. I have moved many times in the past and almost all have been bad experiences including hidden costs, broken and lost goods and overdue deliveries. Jack excelled in all those areas, this was my first move where nothing was broken or lost and delivery was way sooner than I expected. Bekins has a terrific driver and ambassador in Jack. I would not hesitate to use Bekins and Jack Skillin in the future!

William T. 10/17/2017

We are both thankful that we used Bekins Moving for our relocation from Florida to Maine. Needless to say, selling a home and moving is an extremely stressful experience. Bekins and its staff were professional, courteous, and patient throughout from administrative to packers to delivery and drivers. Thank you for a job well done. We will highly recommend you to our friends.

I don't know how to thank you and your team(s).  I was getting so stressed with the chaos of empty boxes & paper that I was going to fall apart.  Your crew came in and the mess was gone in minutes.  They were polite, respectful, timely, and overall incredible.  I will recommend Bekins A1 Movers to anyone who will listen!!!
