Why hire a moving company?
- Hiring a truck and driver
- Sourcing for moving supplies
- Switching addresses, utilities and cancelling subscriptions
- Getting interstate permits
- Hiring a babysitter for the kids and pets
- Packing numerous items in corrugated boxes
These tasks are many, expensive and time consuming. You can easily forget some tasks which may result in inefficiency.
Moving companies can swiftly handle the difficult tasks. This leaves you with ample time to design your move and ensure nothing has been forgotten.
You do not have to take time off to assist with your move. Moving companies have full-service moves that handle every bit of the moving process.
They also have extra services such as pet transport and emergency moves. This confirms the company can handle any your needs.
Equipment and trained employees
Moving companies have the appropriate equipment to deal with any item. They have dollies which move stacked boxes. Ramps are used across irregular floors or high grounds to reduce the time used to navigate such difficult areas.
The company also has winches and vacuum lifting machines which deal with bulky items. They can easily hoist a pool table several storeys high. The team can also dismantle large furniture and move it in bits.
The equipment used is only as good as the hand using it. Moving companies have employees who are built to handle heavy lifts and work for long hours. The employees are professionally trained to ensure they provide remarkable services. They divide themselves into teams to handle different tasks simultaneously.
Working together for long periods increases their efficiency. They know the weaknesses and strengths of each team member. They can anticipate dangerous situations and avoid them or tread cautiously.

Steps towards finding the best mover in Cedar Rapids
Ask for suggestions from colleagues or real estate agents. Professional moving companies may have served someone within your vicinity. Real estate agents have useful information since they regularly deal with moving companies.
Iowa Moving and Warehousing Association has the most reliable moving companies in the state. They thoroughly vet all members before registration. Look for movers with more than 10 years of experience.
Use customer reviews from verified sites like Yelp. They validate each review since some companies are known to generate fake reviews using fake accounts.
Tips for an easy move
Schedule a move with a reliable moving company months beforehand. Inform the company representative of all items you want moved during the walk-through.
Break down the moving days into activities. Allocate adequate time for each task and ensure the schedule does not conflict.
Acquire moving supplies from U-Haul or Freecycle.com for free or at subsidized rates. The equipment is in constant use; hence you need to book early.
Label all boxes along the sides. The label should state the destination and type of items contained. Avoid labeling the top since they can’t be identified in a stack.
Move personal items using your means. You can also make copies of important documents.
