Full-service moving companies do a lot more than simply move you from place to place. Sure, that may be their main job description and sometimes that’s essentially all you see when you boil it down to their core responsibilities. However, when you actually look at how much full-service moving companies do for you behind the scenes, you gain a much larger appreciation for the job that they undertake. After all, everybody knows how painstakingly difficult to move is, especially one that requires the movement of a lot of very heavy furniture. So, let’s take a look at the obvious and less obvious aspects of what it means when you hire a full service moving company.
A Distinct Lack of Headaches
Stress is one of the biggest problems that people face when they decide to undertake the aspect of moving. Not only is it because you’re leaving someplace that you are likely comfortable with, but there’s a lot to do. Full-service moving companies are known for helping you to move and making that stress burden a lot less. This is a very obvious thing that everybody sees and is essentially the reason that most people decide to hire full service moving companies. Take me for example. If I ever decide to move later on in life when I have a few more things than I do now that are heavy, I will definitely consider a full service moving company because that means I don’t have to worry about finding friends who are willing to lift extremely heavy furniture for maybe a pizza. I know, that sounds like a college perspective on things, but even a few years from now I’m sure my friends will still love pizza.
On the road again
Now, during a move, one of the least thought of aspects of the entire thing, especially if it’s a long distance move, is what happens when the belongings are in the truck in transit. If you have ever moved by yourself, you know that things if they are not stacked properly can shift in the back of a vehicle. This causes the vehicle to toss things around and scratch a few things along the way. If you are unlucky, it’s quiz is things that you would rather not be squished. But, isn’t that how life works? Well, in the back of a vehicle that is being driven by people who do moving for living, you can rest assured that your belongings are going to be safe. So long as you pack everything into boxes in the proper manner and didn’t bury your glassware underneath your favorite collection of bricks, then you should be glad. To be honest though that parts more common sense. Think about it. Would you place a mirror at the bottom of an extremely heavy box facing upwards? Not if you’re sane. The same thing applies to what you should do when packing. Just make sure that all the heavy things are on the bottom and the breakable things are separate, simple as that
One, two, three and lift
Once you arrive at your destination, you expect a full service moving company to help you move things inside. This is essentially unspoken because it’s written up in the contract that they are supposed to help you bring things inside. Pretty simple. However, some of the more subtle things that you may not notice are the placements where they put things, how they stack things heavy to light, and ensuring that your heavier objects like couches and up in about the general room that they are supposed to be. It’s totally understandable if you don’t have your house completely set up how you want to. After all, your moving into a new home and you will need time to set things up to your liking. This is to be expected. However, the majority of the time when someone moves into a home they have a general idea as to where something is going to go and whether it’s going to be upstairs or downstairs. Even a subtle hint as to where you are going to place things could be of great benefit to the people who are helping you to move. Just make sure you help them out as much is they are going to help you. After all, they may be paid to do this, but they also enjoy it most of the time when the people they are helping to move our friendly.
