Church Furniture Delivery, Moving Pews and Pew Work Services
Moving Church Furniture
You can call your brother in law Vinny, contact a moving company or freight company if you’d like, but you are better off to rent a truck from U-Haul or Ryder.
Think about it for a minute…
You can send a guy in an airplane anywhere in the US for $300 or less, rent a truck and drive it home loaded with furniture. Pews can be stacked up in a truck, using blankets or cardboard between. The selling church will usually provide volunteer labor to help load the furniture, if you ask. That’s the easiest way. More options are listed below.
