Why you need a moving company
Moving involves lifting and transporting heavy items. You need to have the strength and stamina to handle such items.
In case you were to move a pool table from the third floor, you would need at least 5 people. Moving companies can use fewer personnel and advanced equipment to move the same item. They can also dismantle the item and move it in bits.
Professional movers have a wide experience in the moving industry. They know:
- The best packing methods
- The routes with least traffic and good roads
- How to load multiple items in the vehicles
- Creating inventories for all items
The right equipment
Professional movers have materials used to pack items safely. They wrap delicate items with bubble wrap and pack them in corrugated boxes. The boxes are taped on the outside to contain the items.
Moving companies also have trolleys, winches and ramps to transport heavy items from the house to the moving vehicle. The trolleys can move stacked boxes in shorter timelines. Ramps are used to connect two different elevations.
Winches are used for very heavy items and delicate items. Such items include pool tables, pianos and refrigerators.
Some items like spherical art pieces are difficult to lift. They are moved using vacuum lifting machines.
To ensure maximum efficiency, the equipment is operated by professionally trained personnel. Experienced drivers transport items using modified vehicles. The trucks can withstand extreme weather conditions and long hours on the road.

The best moving practices
- Schedule a moving date months in advance. Make time for sourcing for moving supplies, getting a walk-through done and packing.
- Downsize your move by selling or donating items you no longer use. They only serve to reduce the hauling efficiency and increase the moving cost.
- Smartly pack all the items. Label the boxes according to the room number and destination. Use boxes of similar colors to pack items from one room. Place all packed boxes and items in strategic positions.
- Create an inventory of all packed items. Also, remember to make a copy of the mover’s inventory and make sure they align with yours.
- Take pictures of electrical cable connections. It helps when re-connecting them in your new premises.
