All Moving Labor in Killeen is Not Created Equal04/14/2018When faced with the responsibility of moving, you might think to yourself, "I'd rather not lift that," and "I don't want to take forty trips up and down the stairs." With that mindset, you might be ready to let anyone lug those boxes for you. It doesn't matter who does it, so long as you do not have to do it, correct? Not so fast. Just because someone can carry boxes and is willing to lug boxes does not mean you want to let them lug your boxes. Remember: you are permitting these people in your residence. They are putting their hands on all of your possessions. Read that last sentence again. Here are some things to think about when choosing moving labor in Killeen to ensure safety for you and your possessions. Professionally Certified This is imperative. Professionally certified movers in Killeen have submitted to thorough background screening, so you know they are who they say they are, and they are trustworthy. Think twice before hiring a moving company in Killeen without this certification. It's essential for your own peace of mind. Years of Experience If you obtain a buddy's offer to assist you move or employ the least expensive moving labor you can find on Craigslist, you are opening yourself up to some risks. Even if everyone is absolutely credible, they do not necessarily have the needed know-how when it comes to moving bulky furniture, boxes and more. What would happen if one of them scratches the wall with the dresser? What will happen if they break your good china? And do they know how to load it all in the truck to make the best use of the space and prevent shifting that could cause damage? Experience is particularly crucial if you are also needing packing and unpacking services. There is a correct way (and an incorrect way) to pack glass, crystal, rugs, clothing, appliances and more. Things that are too bulky to be boxed should be scrupulously padded. Making silly blunders (or simply being lazy) in this arena could cause damage to or complete destruction of your precious items. A-1 Freeman Moving Group has been doing this for more than forty years. We can pack and move even the most fragile, oddly shaped, or priceless things securely and efficiently from here to there. Properly Uniformed Imagine this: It is moving day. There is one person in athletic wear boxing pictures in the family room. There is someone else in jeans packing glassware in the kitchen. And there is someone else in cargo pants carrying your television out of the bedroom. All normal, correct? Except one of them is not even a mover. It's just someone who saw an open door and some preoccupied owners, and he decided to help himself to your TV. Therefore, it is essential to hire a moving company with properly uniformed movers. You’ll know specifically who is part of the moving crew and who is not--and it makes it much less likely that someone who is not would dare make an attempt to "help" you move. Uniforms may seem like a small detail, but they are an important one. Further, it's just more professional. A uniform is another clue that your movers are serious about what they do—it is not just a hobby. Your movers are doing their job, but it is a very personal one. You are entrusting them with all of your earthly possessions, everything that makes your house feel like home. Don't turn that over to just anybody. Whether you need moving labor to transport the furnishings of a one-bedroom apartment or an eight-bedroom house, we have got you covered with experienced, certified, and uniformed movers.
