Do you require a moving company to handle your move?
With the advent of specialized and long distance moving, professional companies are a necessity. Movers have the required experience to cover the distance. A long distance move is often hampered by many risks; road accidents, delays, personal injury and theft.
Out of state movers know the best routes to use and the appropriate hours to move. Some roads have very heavy traffic and covering a short distance may take hours. Using satellite coverage, company drivers are alerted on the less held up roads. This saves on time and potential accidents.
Movers have insurance. In case the heavy pool table is broken when loading, the cost is recovered fully.
Movers have the right equipment. They can handle very delicate items with ease. All glasses are moved using suction machines. The brittle plastics are padded using blankets and bubble wrap. The items are transported under keen eyes. This ensures no scratches on your LED screen.
Professional moving companies use an inventory to keep track of all items. This accountability ensures no losses when items are being transported and unloaded.
A-1 Auto Transport can help you move your household goods nationwide. Call 888-509-3213 to get a free, no obligation to buy price quote on interstate moving services.
Tips for a smooth move
- Contact the moving company months prior to the move. Have a company representative come and do a walk-through with you. They should give an estimate based on the weight and special requirements.
- Sign the contract after you agree on favorable terms. In the contract beware of dubious clauses that may lead to price increase. Establish that failure to adhere to the agreement can result to charges on both parties.
- Use reusable boxes that can withstand the weight of the items. Test the boxes to ensure they don’t give in to the weight upon impact. Drill handles on the boxes to make lifting easy.
- Use boxes of the same color to pack items from one room. Label all the boxes according to the room they originated from. List the items they contain along the side of each box.
- Tightly seal liquid bottles when packing. Little spills can ruin expensive items. They can discolor your sofa or favorite clothes.
- Do not pack flammables and illegal items since the movers will inspect before loading.
- Use an inventory to note all items as you pack. Compare your inventory with the movers to confirm they are in sync.
- Place all the boxes in a strategic location for easy access by the movers.
- Use soap to cover those nail holes on the sides of walls.
- Change your address and inform all concerned individuals.
- Lastly give the movers some refreshments and tip them appropriately.
How to find a reliable mover
