We are relocation specialists. In addition to being professional movers, we work with a lot of people who are moving, exasperated or overwhelmed by the process and need someone to step in and manage the move. Our services involve far more than moving a truck and involves making moves as easy as possible. We can tackle moving jobs that are typically harder or more challenging.

We move large or awkward objects

As relocation specialists, we know how to move large items such as boats, trailers, and RVs. Essentially, our company can move anything that a family has by way of fun or recreational vehicles. This is very important for a family because of how difficult it can be to move the large objects while also trying to move household items and regular vehicles across town or the country.

For example, if there are only two adults in the household and there are already two or three vehicles, there are more vehicles than the adults can move. Moving boats, collector cars and ATVs on top of that can add significantly more stress. By hiring our company to do it, the moving process can be far easier.

Moving heavier household objects safely

We can also move heavy household objects. Pianos, organs and any heavy musical equipment can be virtually impossible for people to pick up and get into the truck. We can move them carefully and place them in the new home, in the correct spot. We can also move everything that makes up a game room.

For example, a billiard table, arcade games, foosball table, and bar can all be incredibly heavy. Not just heavy, these objects can also be awkward and difficult to lift. Rather than risking breaking or selling the objects, we recommend giving our company a call. As professionals, we know how to move everything from the game room safely. We can even set up the object in the new home so that everyone can start playing again.

As relocation specialists, we can also move outdoor equipment. Pool furniture, gazebos, lawn tractors, etc. need to be moved to the new location. These objects can be awkwardly shaped and bulky, making them that much harder to fit inside the moving truck. However, we know what it takes to get them to new home safely and securely.

Creating a plan

A successful move begins with a plan. There must be a strategic plan for what will be moved to the new home, how it will be broken down, packed and physically transported. It takes time to create this level of a plan but it is necessary to ensure that everything can make it to the next location, especially if it is large, overly heavy, a recreational vehicle, toy or something that is awkwardly shaped. Working with relocation specialists makes it much easier to create and execute such a plan.

Call for help

We are available to provide assistance before and during your move. As relocation specialists, we know how to get the job done right.

Moving can be far easier when using professional relocation services. We are here to make your move stress-free.

Why use relocation services?

There are many different reasons why people consider using relocation services when moving to a new address. For most people, moving is already a stressful activity. Due to dealing with a new location, new work, new schools and a new routine, moving can be much more difficult than some people believe. Many folks do not want to have to take the time and trouble of actually relocating all of their possessions.

Additionally, relocating is a lot of work. Not only does it involve big life changes, but it also involves having to pack up a complete house, only to unpack everything at the new home after. Without professional movers, there is a greater risk of breaking equipment, not meeting timelines and not knowing where to begin. In situations like this, it is far more advisable to simply use professional moving services.

Convenience

One of the most common reasons why people state that they use our services is the convenience that it offers with the move. People who are relocating already have a great deal on their plate and not having to deal with moving their stuff is a burden that they are delighted to give up. The best way to think about it is to look at each scenario.

The first scenario

In the first scenario, the people relocating are going to have to pack all of their stuff, figure out the best way to protect their breakables, rent a truck, load all the stuff onto the truck, drive it all the way to the other location, unload the truck, unpack the stuff and then put it away.

This involves a great deal of meticulous planning and implementation.  All of this while also having the non-physical elements of the move.

The second scenario

In the second scenario, the same people could simply have a professional company do all of the work for them, while they only focus on moving the things most personal to them. Convenience is a critical reason to consider relocation by a professional moving company.

Planning

When it comes to relocating, there is a great deal of planning that goes into the process. This planning of the move splits into two even parts. There is the physical relocation, which involves moving all the stuff. And there is the actual relocation which involves planning life once the family has moved. On the physical element, it is far easier to simply have relocation services move all of the stuff for the family.

This allows them to focus on the second aspect of relocation which could involve things like finding new schools, meeting the neighbors, hooking up the cable and all of those tiny details that we all tend to take for granted in our everyday life. All of these need to be relocated to the new home and all of the services need to be canceled or changed at the old location. In other words, there is a lot of planning that goes into a move, outside of the actual physical relocation.

It is possible to remove the stress and effort required for the physical move so that your family can focus on planning the non-physical aspects of the move more effectively. To get help, give us a call. 

A to Z Moving Tips From a Relocation Specialists

As relocation specialists, we can help you relocate for work, school, or just for fun. Regardless of whether you need to move your family to take a new job or you are trying an adventure far from home, relocating requires far more than it does to simply move out of the neighborhood or across town. This is why it helps to have a relocation specialist in your corner. We can provide you with a quote and help you get where you need to be without stress and without incident. In the meantime, here are a few moving tips to make the process far easier:

#1 - Ask your employer if they offer relocation assistance.

If you are moving for your current job or are beginning to work for a new employer, ask about relocation assistance. Many employers offer this, and the money can be put to good use to pay for your moving expenses. This allows you to receive the help you need to move and not have to worry about packing and moving on your own.

#2 - Move what you need and get rid of the rest.

Too many people will pack everything in their house, only to find that some of the boxes are never unpacked and take up space in the garage. When you are going through your house, identify things that you and your family no longer need, and sell or give them away. For example, your five-year-old no longer needs their crib or bouncy chair, and if you haven’t played bocce ball in 20 years, there is a good chance you never will. While it does take time to go through your things, doing so will ensure that you are not carrying clutter into your new home.

#3 - Research online.

Once you know where you are moving to, it is time to look for a neighborhood. Conducting research online can help you identify areas with good schools and the amenities you are looking for. Some real estate sites will give you a quick snapshot of what is around the homes you are examining. By narrowing your search down to specific neighborhoods, you will have parameters to give your real estate agent.

#4 - Work with a local realtor.

A local real estate agent can help you find a new home to buy or rent, even if you cannot see it in person. With features like virtual tours and most people having smartphones, your realtor can even walk you through the home remotely. Some people prefer to rent for the first year so they can make sure it really is the neighborhood they want to stay in.

#5 - Hire movers who are

We work with individuals, couples, and families who are in the midst of relocating within their state or cross country. Regardless of where you are, we can help. Moving can be stressful, in part because of how much work it is to pack everything up, load the truck, drive it where it needs to be, and then unload it. Overall, that is a great deal of work, and when you are planning for a new job or securing new schools for the kids, that can just add to the stress. As professional movers, we can pack everything, dismantle your furniture, load the truck, move it, unpack it, and even put your furniture back together again.
