Use Your Moving Stipend to Hire Professional Movers

Written by Rosalyn Smith on . Posted in Professional Movers


Is your employer giving you a moving stipend to hire professional movers? If so, it may be tempting to complete the move yourself and keep the money. Many people think that it would be fairly easy to handle the move and use the money for things like new furniture. We are here with a piece of friendly advice - hire movers anyway.

Make a list

When relocating for work, it is important to make a list of everything that the family needs to do. This list needs to include boxing up everything in the home, cleaning the house, loading the truck, driving it to the new location, unloading, and unpacking everything. All of these tasks are in addition to doing things like signing up for new health insurance and finding a school or daycare for the kids while getting settled and accustomed to a new environment. The list is probably far longer than one would anticipate.

Start off on the right foot

Completing all of the tasks associated with the move can be incredibly exhausting. It can be difficult for anyone to manage all of this activity while also preparing to start a new position or to work for an entirely new company. It can be overwhelming and leave a person feeling exhausted when they should be on their "A" game for a new position.

By hiring professional movers, it is possible to alleviate the burden of the packing and focus on other factors of adjusting to a new home. For example, no one else can make the final decisions on which home to purchase or rent.

No one else can make decisions regarding finding a school for the kids or a new doctor. These things take time and only you can do them. What can be delegated, is the move and that is what we are here to assist with.

How professional movers can help

When moving a client, we like to have a conversation ahead of time to discuss our various services and how we can be supportive. We can handle as much or as little of the move as is necessary. When a client hires us to handle the move from start to finish, we can come into the home and pack everything into boxes, labeling each of them with the specific room they came from.

We can even pack up valuables and breakable items to ensure that they are transported safely across town or across the country. On moving day, we can then load up the truck and take apart furniture to help everything fit securely. We can then drive the truck to the new home and unload it once there. With everything properly labeled, we can put the boxes and furniture into the correct rooms at the new home. We can even set furniture back up and unpack if necessary. This makes it possible to begin enjoying the house immediately.

Professional Movers Can Get You to School

Written by Rosalyn Smith on . Posted in Professional Movers

professional-movers317Going to college for a BA, or to graduate school, may mean a move across the country. Going to the best possible school is often at the top of the list. If that school is out of state, moving may be the best option. The challenge is in finding a place to live while also moving in before the school year begins. For someone living in a furnished dorm room, this is relatively easy. Since grad students and Ph.D. candidates rarely live in a dorm, they will need to find a house or apartment that they furnish. Professional movers are the best people to help you move your belongings in an efficient time frame and keep them safe.

Size considerations

When moving for school, consider the size of the new space. If it is similar to the size of home or apartment the client currently lives at, we can transport all the furnishings and prevent the need to buy new ones at the new home. If it is smaller, it may be necessary to place some things in storage until school is complete.

Deciding what to move

Once it is clear what belongings we need to move, a professional moving company can visit the current home to pack everything up, load it in the truck and move the belongings to the new home. This is far easier than tackling the entire move without assistance. With the need to mentally and physically prepare for the school year, dealing with the hassle of moving can become a distraction that negatively influences school performance.

Imagine trying to mentally prepare for a semester at a new university while trying to struggle with packing belongings and loading a couch in a truck. Moving is a hassle which can be incredibly distracting and we can reduce the stress one may feel.

Benefits of working with professional movers

The main benefits to keep in mind are:

  • You do not have to pack. We can pack your belongings for you, including packing small objects and labeling the boxes.
  • Furniture is taken apart. If there are large pieces to move like dining room sets, beds, and side tables that come apart, we can disassemble the furniture for you. We will then put it back together at the new location for easy transportation.
  • The truck is loaded by someone else. Furniture and even boxes can be terribly heavy, making it possible to injure yourself if you are not experienced with moving. We can load up and empty the truck for you.
  • Professional movers can drive the truck. One of the biggest advantages is not having to drive the truck, freeing yourself up to drive your personal vehicle to your new home.
  • It is unloaded on the other side. Unpacking your belongings can take time, but it is far easier when someone else is unloading them. We can even place the furniture and boxes in the correct rooms.
  • Peace of mind. It is possible to take a load off and have peace of mind knowing that everything will get where it needs to go without doing it all.

Tips from Professional Movers on Preventing Damage During Your Move

Written by Rosalyn Smith on . Posted in Professional Movers


It's amazing how as professional movers, we get asked all the time what the best way is to protect your breakables and valuables when you are moving houses or offices. A simple answer is to hire us as your professional moving company. While that answer may seem to be slightly self-serving, one of the best ways to protect your valuables and ensure that your breakables will make it in one piece is to hire someone who understands the work entailed in moving somebody. As professional movers, we will ensure that we protect your property to the best of our ability.

There are certain steps you can take that will help us move you faster, help protect your breakables, and give you relative peace of mind as the move is happening. We also understand that moving can be an extremely stressful experience, and so here are a few tips you should incorporate into your move.

Create an inventory: The very first thing you should do is create a comprehensive inventory of all your stuff. Making a list of all your items will give you peace of mind knowing that if you lose something, you will be immediately aware of it. In addition, it allows you to create lists to go into specific boxes and will help you discard something you may not want to take on the move. If you don't have sufficient time to create an entire inventory, another option is to take photographs of your possessions before they are packed away. As professional movers, it is always helpful to us if our clients have an inventory.

Keep small items and things like jewelry on your person: If you are going to use a professional movers company, it is always highly recommended that you hang on to things like paperwork, jewelry, and smaller items that can travel with you in your own vehicle. This allows you to quickly locate an item that has extreme value and also gives you a level of peace of mind. In addition, small items can easily get lost if they are packed into boxes and put into the back of a professional movers’ truck. Finding the grand piano may not be a challenge, but finding your favorite set of pearl earrings could be slightly more difficult if you are moving an entire house and both of them are packed into the same space.

Self-Packing Tips: If you decide that you want to do some of the packing beforehand, which many people using professional movers prefer to do, it is important that you follow a few general rules. First, you should always invest in solid boxes that will not rip, tear, or dump the contents on the floor as they are being moved. Secondly, do not overfill the boxes or make them extremely heavy, which makes them difficult to transport to and from the professional movers’ truck. Finally, plates, glasses, and bowls are probably the most likely things to break during the move, so we recommend that you wrap each of these individual items in at least two, preferably three, sheets of newspapers and stack them together for added protection.

Again, if you want to move everything safely, the easiest thing to do is give us a call.  We can get you there in one piece and make the process of moving far easier. 

Professional Movers Can Relocate Your Office

Written by Rosalyn Smith on . Posted in Professional Movers


As professional movers, we work a great deal with homeowners who have bought a new home, are moving out of the area, etc., but we also work with many businesses that are relocating. A business move can be incredibly tedious, complex, and stressful. Simultaneously, moving to a new sparkling building or an office with a view can be exciting and symbolize your company’s increased success. Our goal is to handle the move so you can enjoy the positive aspects of change, rather than the work it takes to get there.

Professional Movers Can Pack You Up

One way we save you time is by packing for you. This is hugely beneficial because it means your employees will not need to take time out of doing their actual jobs to worry about the move. Your customers will still be taken care of and everything squared away while we handle the actual packing and moving.

We Deliver Everything

Once we have packed up your offices, we can deliver what you need to your new office location without delay. Many of the businesses we work with have us pack up their offices on a Friday afternoon so their business is not interrupted. Whether your move is to the office building down the street or to a new city, we can pack up and deliver everything to your new office.

Professional Movers Can Unpack for You

One of the best parts of our service (according to our customers) is that we can unpack for you as well. After packing up and moving everything to your new location, we can unload it, put furniture and boxes in their proper new offices, and unpack. This can mean rebuilding desks and chairs and putting things back where they were. While we will need some guidelines regarding exactly what you want to be done and where you want it to go, this is certainly an option for you.

For an Easy Move, Call Professional Movers

We can help you get all set up in your new offices right away. By packing up your current offices, delivering furniture, boxes, and everything else to your new location, we make it possible for you to be up and running on the same day. All you need to do is have someone provide direction regarding where things need to go. On your end, you should plan on having the cable and telephone company out the next or same day, so everything can be installed and connected immediately. If you do this on the weekend, the phone that worked prior to the move will work again on Monday morning.

As professional movers, we can get you where you need to be without missing a beat. Our crew is incredibly careful and will make sure everything is packed appropriately and safely so it is delivered in optimal condition. Rather than asking your team to help pack up and take down furniture then unload and set up, you can count on us to handle this for you while they keep up with the job you hired them for.
