Are you moving to a new home? Moving companies don’t just do the heavy lifting and driving anymore. Now, you can find moving companies which help with all aspects of a move. Here are some of the top moving services you should know about before planning your move.
Many moving companies are flexible about their packing services. This means that you don’t have to hire them to pack up everything. You can have the movers’ just pack up 1 room (kitchens are particularly tough to pack), or just pack up fragile items, or come over the day before the move to finish packing anything you didn’t get to.
Most moving companies offer storage service in case you can’t move into your new home right away. However, few moving companies actually have their own storage facility. They simply rent space at a 3rd party facility. Make sure you understand where the facility is located, its security, and conditions. If possible, go check out the storage facility yourself.
Large Item Moving
Have an item like a piano or pool table? Some moving companies will be able to move these. More often though, the moving company will hire a 3rd party service which specializes in the task. You might be able to save money by hiring your own specialist to move the item – but it is also less of a hassle to just have the moving company arrange for the services.
This service is commonly offered by moving companies. You usually don’t even have to tell them ahead of time. Just be warned that each moving company charges for furniture dis-assembly/reassembly differently. With local moves, it just might be counted with the normal hourly rate. Or it may be an extra fee. Be sure you understand the costs so you can determine whether it makes more sense to take furniture apart yourself or have the pros do it.
