Read on to learn more about our moving services.
Tips on how to make the move easier
- Pack an overnight bag the day before the move. You might need to carry an overnight bag with warm clothes and personal effects, just in case you run into any delays during the move.
- Sort all your items. While you are packing for the move, it would be wise to sort all your items. Saving on space goes a long way in making the move easier and reducing the cost of the move. Any old or damaged pieces of furniture should be donated to charity or even thrown away.
- Get help. Long distance moves require a lot of time and manpower. You may not be able to do it all on your own. For a fast and efficient move, hire a moving company.
- Get to know as much as you can about your new town. Get to know the weather patterns, the transport routes, and any other details that can make the move easier.
Why you should hire a moving company
Here are some of the benefits of hiring a moving company:
- You will have more time. Moving companies provide labor. They have enough skilled and experienced manpower to make that long-distance move to or from Ketchikan easy. They will do all the work for you.
- Movers are faster. Since the mover has experienced personnel, chances are that they have moved people to/from the same area and they know the transport routes better.
- Moving companies are safer. Moving companies are required to provide security for all the items they transport. Therefore, you can be sure that all your office equipment or household items will get to their destination safely.
- Your delicate furniture will be in safe hands. If you opted to move on your own, then you might find it hard to carry delicate pieces of furniture like family heirlooms, piano tables or pool tables. Movers come with the necessary equipment to carry such pieces..

Qualities of a good moving company
Here are some of the things you should look for in a moving company:
- Valid license information. You should hire a moving company that is licensed by the FMCSA. Make sure they have a valid USDOT number.
- Full value protection. Movers are required by law to protect their clients from any cases of theft or damage. Most of the time, this comes in the form of a full-value protection policy. You should only go for a mover that provides this type of policy.
- Experience. A good moving company is one which has been in the moving business for a decent amount of time. They are better at handling any challenges that may occur; they are less likely to make mistakes.
- Affordable pricing. Go for a mover that offers pocket-friendly prices without any additional or hidden charges.
- Positive reviews from previous clients. Check out what previous clients are saying about the company. There are so many online platforms like Yelp and the BBB where clients recount their moving experience with the company.
