Many people only think of long-distance moving companies as movers who show up on a moving day, load your belongings onto a truck and transport your belongings to your new home. Today, however, full-service long-distance moving companies offer more options than ever, including the following:
The following is a brief list of services available to you through us.
Whether you need to pack everything or just the most fragile items, most long-distance moving companies offer your needed services. Hiring movers will mean unpacking and being ready to live in a day, not weeks or months.
Having your moving company handle the packing and unpacking often also means less opportunity for valuables to be damaged. Professionals know how to pack and move items that may seem impossible to you.
In your current home, you need anything large and bulky – including waterbeds, swings, furniture, etc. –to be taken apart and reassembled in a new location. It takes the stress out of thinking about assembling and disassembling large items and can improve your overall moving experience.
Ask your moving company if they provide short-term or portable storage for your belongings while you wait. Or it would help if you had a more permanent storage solution. If this is the case, many of the best long-distance moving companies have storage services for rent or at least have affiliations with reputable storage facilities.
Some things just won’t fit in a traditional box because they’re too big, fragile, or oddly shaped. Find a moving company that can offer shipping services like framed artwork, sculptures, or electronic equipment. The company will pick up your items and ensure they are packed to withstand the move.
The essential part of moving is how the company loads your belongings onto the truck. Finding a moving company that can adequately load your belongings and do all the loading and unloading for you is vital. Everyone offers, but some moving and storage services force you to load things, and you can’t ensure the safety of your belongings like the professionals can.
