What Are the Benefits of Working With Professional Movers?

Whether you’re embarking on a local or long-distance move, you already have a lot of things to worry about other than the transportation of your belongings. There are utility companies to call, rooms to clean, and neighborhoods to research. Working with our movers lets you focus on things like this while we handle the finer points of the moving process, such as packing, route planning, and unloading boxes.

Work like this requires more than time. Moving in an efficient manner also requires the right equipment and know-how, as well. There are moving dollies, furniture straps, sliders, ramps, lift gates, and trucks. Having access to equipment like this makes a world of difference on the day of your residential or commercial move.

Local Movers at Your Service

For local moves, we understand the importance of familiarity with the area. Our local expertise enables us to navigate neighborhoods efficiently, optimizing routes and minimizing transit times. This proficiency ensures prompt delivery and translates into cost-effective solutions for our clients.

Long Distance Moving Services

Long distance moves demand meticulous planning and execution. Our movers are well-versed in coordinating moves over extensive distances, considering factors such as transportation logistics, scheduling, and regulatory requirements. With a commitment to reliability, we prioritize the safe and timely delivery of your belongings, providing peace of mind throughout the journey.

What Can You Pack in a Moving Truck?

When the time comes to prepare your belongings for the moving truck, you might find yourself wondering which items are admissible or non-admissible. Unfortunately, some items simply cannot go into the back of a moving truck. Anything that has the potential to damage the truck's contents or a client's property are considered non-admissible. This might include flammable liquids, corrosives, fireworks, and things of that nature.

Will Movers Handle Your Valuable Items?

Our moving company has policies regarding the transportation of items of extraordinary value, such as valuable artwork, antiques, jewelry, and collectibles. If such goods worth $3,000.00 or more are carried without a special agreement, and if the nature of the goods is not disclosed, you are liable for losses or damages.

Do You Need Moving Insurance?

It's generally advisable to consider getting moving insurance when relocating, especially for long-distance moves or when transporting valuable or fragile items. Homeowners insurance policies typically include coverage for personal property, which may extend to belongings temporarily removed from your home during a move.

That said, this coverage is often subject to certain limitations and exclusions, such as coverage limits, deductibles, and restrictions on the types of losses covered. It's wise to reach out to your insurance provider in the weeks or months leading up to your move.

When is the Best Time to Move?

With peak moving season falling between the months of April and September, you might think that the best time of year to move would be in the fall and winter. While fewer people might be moving during this time, unpredictable weather and poor road conditions can result in delays and higher labor costs.

If avoiding peak season is not an option for you, we recommend abiding by a few rules. Monday and Tuesday are the best days of the week to schedule a move, rather than Fridays or weekends. The end of the month is always the busiest time for moving, as well, so you might have an easier time scheduling a move sometime before this.

If you'd like to schedule a move during a peak time, we recommend reaching out far in advance to get a spot on our calendar as soon as possible.

Can You Drive the Moving Truck?

Many people ask if they can operate a moving truck during a local, short-distance move. As confident as you might be behind the wheel, we only allow our trained drivers to operate moving trucks.

Allowing clients to drive the moving truck can pose safety risks and potential liabilities for both the client and our moving company. Inexperienced drivers may not be familiar with the operation of a large commercial vehicle, which can increase the risk of accidents or damage to the truck or other vehicles on the road. In the interest of safety, we deploy our skilled truck drivers during the moving process.

Can You Hire Movers for a Storage Unit?

Our approach to moving items to or from a storage unit ensures efficiency at every turn. We begin by assessing the specific needs of the job, including the size of the storage unit, the types of items being moved, and any special requirements or instructions from the client. This allows us to develop a customized moving plan that addresses these factors and ensures that the job is completed to the client's satisfaction.

Special considerations for moving items to or from a storage unit may include factors such as:

  • Accessibility
  • Security
  • Organization

Whether you're moving items into a storage unit for temporary storage or retrieving belongings from storage for a relocation, you can trust our team to handle the job with professionalism, efficiency, and care.

Fragile Item Care

From fine china and glassware to valuable artwork and electronics, certain items require special care and attention to ensure they arrive at their destination intact. We make sure to implement proper packing and handling techniques to protect them during transit. Count on us to use high-quality materials such as bubble wrap, packing paper, and sturdy boxes.

Each fragile item is individually wrapped and cushioned to provide an extra layer of protection against bumps, vibrations, and shifts during transport. For added assurance, we can double-box to minimize the risk of damage, as well.

Packing and Unpacking Services

Our packing services streamline the moving process and protect your belongings every step of the way. We rely on high-quality packing materials such as bubble wrap, packing peanuts, and plastic boxes to ensure that your items are securely packed for transport. Whether you need mirror boxes, China barrels, or furniture bags, we've got you covered. Our goal is to make the unpacking process as smooth and efficient as possible, allowing you to settle into your new home with ease.

Upon arrival at your new location, our team carefully unpacks your belongings, taking care to handle each item with caution. We follow your instructions and preferences to ensure that items are unpacked and placed in their designated rooms according to your specifications.

Should You Help During the Packing Process?

Movers are typically liable for any damage or injury that occurs during the moving process, so it's important that we have full control over the loading and securing of items into the moving truck. Doing so ensures the safety of your belongings.

There are always other ways that you can assist during the moving process, though. You can clear your home of any objects or debris that might pose an obstacle, for example.
