Why a moving company is necessary

Specialized and valuable items

Items like pianos and LED screens require professional handling since a simple mistake can be disastrous. A moving company is trained and has handled such items before. They have strong employees who use gripers on the edges of the items to avoid slipping across stairs and irregular floors.

Moving companies design a move according to your needs. They have the facilities and experience and hence they only require your item and specifications. They can move pets, glassware, bulky furniture and very heavy items like sculptures.

Optimum safety

Moving companies are in a better position to handle your items than your friends. They have professional training to handle any item the customer owns. They use corrugated boxes which are padded with soft linen on the inside. The items are wrapped with bubble wrap and arranged in a systematic position to save space and ensure safety.

The employees are well bonded and hence understand each other properly. They move in unison and rarely slip or miss a step. They also have vacuum lifting machines which can lift delicate items which are not easy to handle.

Items in the truck are strapped to the ground and hence don’t bump into each other in transit. Heavy items are loaded foremost while light and delicate items go on top. Very valuable items have a different compartment in the carrier. The trucks are monitored at the headquarters to keep the items safe.

How to find the best moving company in East Peoria

Search reliable moving companies from customer review sites like MovingScam.com. They review and rank movers based on the customer experience, quality of services and equipment.

Verify the company’s IDOT number at FMCSA. Key in the carrier number and view the type of insurance and permits the company possesses. Check the validity of the licenses and scope of coverage.

Moving companies who are members of AMSA and IMAWA have quality services. They educate the public about moving and deal with mover-customer disagreements.

The best moving practices

  • Plan your move. Begin at least three months in advance to factor enough time for a change of mind or unavoidable circumstances.
  • Downsize your move. It is more affordable to sell items of little value than pay the cost of moving them. Very old clothes and furniture should be discarded.
  • Create an inventory of all packed items. Compare it with the mover’s inventory after loading.
  • Separate items to be used for the first night and move them by your means. Begin packing from the room with most items and rarely used items as you proceed to everyday items.
  • Take pictures of all electrical connections and packed items. It helps when re-installing electrical set-ups in your new premises.
  • Place the packed items in a strategic location. Ensure the movers have easy access to all items. Moving companies charge by the hour, so the more time they spend in your premises, the higher the charge.
