Even though you are ready to move, your belongings might not be. For whatever reason, you don’t have the time, strength, or organizational skills to pack everything and load it into the moving truck. Family and friends offer some help, but if no one is around you’ll need to look elsewhere, you’ll need professional moving assistance.
Since no two professional moving companies are exactly alike, customers should call and research what sort of services the companies have to offer. Smaller moving companies will only load customer items onto the truck and move them across town. While other companies do more, including supplies moving equipment direct to the customer should they choose to load the truck themselves. Such equipment can be anything from appliance dollies, loading ramps, pulley systems, strapping and webbing, carts, to runners.
More experienced moving companies supply moving boxes and necessities that are included in a price package. Usually, the company offers premade packages that include boxes of various sizes, packing tape, and dispensers, with labels and markers. They may also include protection supplies for dishes and breakables, such as packing peanuts, plain paper, tissue paper, thick or thin foam corner protectors and sheets, or cardboard grids.
On the other hand, some professional movers require the client to purchase moving boxes and supplies separately from the labor price. This allows the client to buy needed supplies either from the moving company or from another company that supplies moving goods.
Some companies have expert movers who will consult the client on everything from organization, to how to pack and what materials to use, even on how best to fit everything into one moving van. Larger, established companies have movers who will do all the packing, loading and unloading for the client with little time to do it his, or herself.
More and more companies with web presence offer online how-to articles on everything related to moving clients’ belongings without adding unnecessary stress. Some, like John D Moving, write articles on subjects like finding the right apartment, decorating tips, how to find the perfect house, and what to expect when moving a piano.
Find moving companies in the phone book, or search online for moving assistance. Web-based catalogs are available from many professional mover companies. These websites supply moving merchandise lists, pricing, and quotes for most services. Also be sure to visit the company’s FAQs (frequently asked questions), About, and Contact pages to learn more about the company and the services they offer.
