Let the Experts Do the Work: Full Service Movers.
Many individuals and families who relocate enlist the help of friends, family members, and neighbors to get the job done. Others hire a moving company to help with loading, transporting, and unloading their boxes and furniture. However, sometimes the best route is to work with a full service moving company. These companies send a crew of movers to your home, who put their experience to work packing all of your items safely, moving them to their destination, and unpacking them again. While full-service movers can be costly, they are very convenient, and in some situations, it is the best way to get the job done efficiently and safely.
Who Benefits Most From These Services?
The ideal candidates for hiring full-service movers are those who are unable to put in the significant time and work investment necessary to pack and unpack their household items. These include:
● Elderly or handicapped individuals.
● Single parents with no family to assist at the old or new home site.
● Corporate employees relocating while conducting business.
● Families who simply can’t fit packing into their work/school schedule!
The military and large companies are often willing to pay for a full service moving company to relocate servicemen and employees. This is a welcome relief for these individuals and families, especially when the move is to a new country and there are many other responsibilities to address.
Your Part in a Full Service Move.
While full-service movers take care of all the packing, loading, and unpacking, they still need the homeowner to be on site or easily contacted during the process. The movers invariably have questions about how you want certain items packed; whether certain things should be left behind; or what to do with objects like plants, candles, flammable liquids, and perishable foods, which sometimes can not be transported by professional movers. The better prepared you are for a move by clearing out clutter, disposing of trash, and removing questionable items, the more quickly a full-service company can get everything else into the truck.
Advantages of Full Service Movers.
Besides the obvious advantage of convenience, full-service movers have a lot to offer. Their experience gives them the ability to know just how to safely pack your fragile items, and they use high-quality packing materials to protect your belongings even further. If you are moving internationally, there are specific requirements about what items can be transported and how they must be packed. Full-service movers know these requirements and can make sure that your load complies, saving time and confusion at checkpoints.
