What comes to mind when you think of a good moving company? Chances are you think of a company that’s reliable, timely, transparent, and affordable. Whether you’re moving your home, apartment, or your entire office, there’s no way to overstate the importance of having a reliable moving company at your side through the whole process. In this blog, we’re going to talk about what it means to be a great moving company and how you can find one.
The first thing you should look for in a moving company is that they’re a full-service packing, moving, storage, and delivery company. Think about it, why would you spend the extra time and money calling up multiple moving companies just to get the services you need when you could call one company that does it all? Local moving, storage and delivery are the essentials, however, a full-service moving company will do much more:
Packing: The first step in any moving project is planning and packing. If your belongings aren’t packed properly, or at all, you won’t have an efficient move, and you’ll be wasting time and money. Packing not only improves that rate at which you can move to your new destination, but properly packed items will be protected on the drive over. Some fragile items that you may need moving include:
- Glass and marble tabletops
- Glass shelving and doors
- Portraits and paintings
- Statues and sculptures
- Lighting fixtures
- Fine China
A well-trained mover will provide you with all the materials you need to pack your belongings, assist you with packing them, then load them onto the moving truck in a way that won’t damage anything.
Local and Long Distance Moving: When it comes to the moving process, efficiency is key. Whether you’re moving locally, long distance, or internationally, a great professional moving company will know exactly what truck is needed for the job as well as how many movers it will take. They’ll work around your busy schedule to find a moving time that works best for you, then get all your items to your new destination as soon as possible without damaging them.
Depending on whether you need residential moving services or commercial moving services, your needs may be different. Where residential moving may only require the company to move everything to the new destination and unload, commercial moving may be more complex. Often times, whole companies will need to relocate, requiring more organization on the part of the moving company. Reliable movers will work closely with you and understand your company’s goals in order to be a greater asset to you. They’ll make suggestions to make your move more efficient and take the work off your hands so you can focus on running and growing your business.
Storage: Depending on your time schedule, you may need a storage facility to keep your belongings at while you wait to move into your new home or office. Most dependable moving companies will have storage solutions available to you and have flexible options.
Senior moving: If you have a loved one who needs to move into an assisted living facility or into your own home so you can take care of them, you may need special moving services in order to make the transition as smooth as possible. These services include things such as:
- Detailed inventory of all items
- Securely packing belongings
- Crating rare and valuable items
- Disassembly and reassembly of furniture like beds and tables
- Unpacking, sorting, and placing belongings in their proper place
- Disposing of trash, packing materials, and other unwanted items
Additionally, if you or your loved one would like to get rid of or donate belongings that you don’t want in the assisted living facility, we would be glad to take them to a donation center or dispose of them.
Transparency: Transparency is an essential characteristic of just about any business. A transparent moving company will provide you with free estimates and consultation services for your move. They’ll want you to know exactly what you’ll be getting and how much you’ll be paying for it.
Affordability: If you’re moving to a new destination, chances are, you’ve already spent a lot of money on your new lease or down payment. You should look for a moving company that will provide you with the best value for your move without cutting corners.
Experience: As with any business, you should look for a company that has experience and knows the ins and outs of the industry. Look for a company that has a proven track record of successful moves and isn’t afraid to show it.
