Why a professional mover is necessary
Professionally trained employees
Moving companies have personnel that are specialized in different moving tasks. There are packers, loaders, drivers and customer service personnel. This ensures all tasks are handled by experts. Packing personnel know the different techniques to squeeze additional items in limited spaces. Loaders begin with heavy items and finish with delicate and everyday items. The customer service experts listen to your suggestions and queries and offer solid solutions.
Moving companies provide cargo cover, workers compensation scheme and general liability cover when handling each move. All items are insured at $0.60 a pound. They also have affixed insurance which can be used for delicate and valuable items.
Moving companies have consultants who advise on the best moves for customers. They also help in designing moves according to your requirements. Moving managers coordinate the personnel on moving day.

Tips for a flawless move
- Set a flexible moving schedule which is convenient for both parties. You may have additional items on moving day or you may change your mind days before the move.
- Pack most of your items days before the movers arrive. It reduces the time spent handling your move which results in reduced moving charges.
- Pack your items room by room. Use towels and blankets to wrap delicate items. You can also use anti-static peanut to pack LED screens. Use free quality corrugated boxes from com to reduce the moving cost.
- Take clear photographs of packed items and electrical connections. It comes in handy when re-installing and justifying compensation.
- Label all the boxes along the sides. Avoid the top since they aren’t easily recognizable in a stack. When loading ensure you do not stack more than four boxes.
- Ensure you are well hydrated on moving day. Play some music to avoid boredom which may result in inefficiency.
