Why moving companies are necessary
Large furniture like L-couches and king size beds are common when moving. These items are too large to fit most doorways. They need to be dismantled and moved in bits. This requires skill since they are delicate and expensive.
Moving companies have the skill and equipment to safely disengage the furniture and load it in bits. In case the items can’t be disengaged, moving companies use forklifts or winches to move the items.
A moving company provides the option for the customer to design their own move. If you have several pets that you want moved, a moving company has the capacity to safely move them. They can move delicate items like heirlooms and fine china safely.
Movers can also conduct fragmented moves. This occurs when the customer:
- Lacks the required finances for a full move.
- They want to move a few items so as to book an empty space.
- They are moving into a space that can’t accommodate all the items.
- They are suddenly required to relocate in days.
When moving, you require friends and relatives that you can rely on. They need to arrive on time and well prepared. But most often, this is not the case; your friends may arrive on time but will work at a slow pace. These delays will result in additional expenses.
A moving company works according to the signed agreement. They know delays on their part mean a reduction on their paycheck. The team works swiftly in unison and the tasks are accomplished in record time.

How to find the best mover in Marion
Check with IMAWA. 95% of all movers in Illinois are registered members. The association has a strict code of ethics and a record of top performance. They educate the public about moving and deal with customer-mover disagreements.
Ask for quotations from several companies and make a comparison. Check how they charge for extra services and consolidation of moves. Prod for better terms such as free discounts for certain items.
- The amount or resources the company owns.
- Confirm the company’s physical addresses.
- The number of crashes a company has.
The best practices when moving to Marion
Have a company representative perform a thorough walk-through. Ensure the representative factors in all moving items including any specialized items. Underestimating the move may lead to a serious budget overrun.
Make necessary moving preparations such as:
- Reserving a parking spot for the company vehicle.
- Acquiring moving supplies in advance from U-Haul and com.
- Be 75% ready when the movers arrive. Since they charge by the hour, ensure they spend only the required time.
Take note of the condition of all your items when packing. It helps when justifying compensation.
Create an inventory of all packed and loaded items. Alternatively, you can make a copy of the company’s inventory.
Inform the movers of all the rules and regulations at the new premises.
