Professional Moving Services
Many of your household items may need to be broken down or taken apart to move safely or to fit through doorways. This can be time consuming and difficult especially for those who have limited tools at their disposal. You can count on us; the licensed and insured pros to give you peace of mind that your things are in the best care. Some good examples of items that need to be disassembled are large storage shelves, desks, beds, dressers (especially those with large mirrors), pull-out couches, futons, bunk beds and certain hutches. Having these taken care of by professional movers will make your experience much less stressful and ensure that your items are not damaged.
Packing and wrapping items is an important part of any moving job. Most people have little experience with this. In the moving business, experience is key. After years and years of doing hundreds of moves, professionals learn what methods keep items the safest. As a moving service it is important that our movers take care and pay attention while packing and wrapping household items. Friends and family may be in a hurry when helping you move, which can turn out to be a disaster. You will be disappointed if not heartbroken when your cabinets or hutch arrives with enough scratches to need fully refinishing. In order to prevent this type of damage you should consider hiring professionals to wrap these items for you.
Taking inventory of everything that gets packed is a part of the job, and is one aspect that is mentioned in our moving tips section. This ensures that your belongings do not get lost in transition. It is often the smaller things that get lost while moving, but by taking inventory there will be a paper trail of everything that came out of your residence. Not only does this make it easy for movers to keep track of your things, it makes it easy for you to layout your possessions when you arrive at your new residence. This step also alleviates confusion and other problems that could come from multiple people handling items. With an inventory sheet there is no mystery as to where your things went.
One of the most overlooked aspects of moving is the actual transportation of your belongings. While some companies may take proper precautions and care when packing items into boxes, disassembly, and tacking inventory – they lack care in ensuring safe travel. When your belongings are inside of the truck, it is important that they are packed in a fashion that will limit moving around, and prevent large and heavy items from clashing or damaging smaller items. Not only will we provide transportation to all of your belongings, but we will also make sure that they are traveling as safe as possible.
Once you arrive at your new residence you will need to get your belongings out and unpacked. Professional moving companies can work with you to create a floor plan or work of your independently created floor plan to make certain all your things go where you want them. This step will save you and our movers a lot of time and energy. Following this step will also limit the struggle of moving large items from room to room once the movers are gone. Re-assembly also falls into this category. Anything that was broken down or taken apart to move will now need to be put back together. Once again, the peace of mind of having a bonded and insured company help you with this should eliminate all of your stress.
We are not only talking about the safety of your possessions but also the safety of your body and your overall well-being. Lifting and moving heavy items is dangerous work for anyone. Once you add in stairs and ramps, the danger increases. If you were to hurt your back, knees or elbows while moving yourself, the money you saved by not hiring a professional goes out the window. Not to mention the permanent damage you could endure from your injuries. Professional movers are trained to lift properly and they take care of themselves as much as they take care of your things, assuring a smooth move for all involved.
You can rest assured that full service moving companies such as us right here in Lansing, can handle any moving job you can bring our way. Think of our professional services as an investment to make sure that you stay safe, and your items do too. There are a lot of aspects to be considered during the preparation and execution of a successful move and with the right planning and movers on your side, it will go much smoother than you may have anticipated. If you’re moving, don’t put your health or your belongings at risk. We know how hard you’ve worked for the things that you own and we will make sure that they are handled properly from their original pickup, all the way to their final destination.
