How to Forgo Epic Failures When Long-Distance Moving Big or Priceless Things to or from Killeen04/14/2017If you’re moving your Killeen household and you’ve got to get something really massive or special from point A to point B, your imagination may be revving into overdrive with all the things that could go wrong. Disaster isn’t set in stone, though. There are ways around it, and we’ll offer them directly. First, let’s look at a handful of assumptions you might be entertaining that can – and often do! – bring about calamity. Assuming you’ll be okay “going it alone” … As the old axiom says, if you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together. At A-1 Freeman we say, if you want that bulky or precious thing of yours to reach its destination no worse for the journey, get help: our help. Assuming you can bubble-wrap anything … Bubble wrap isn’t some paranormal product that protects all things from damage. Trust us – it’s our job to know. Oh, sure, bubble wrap can be a fine protective barrier for many items. But if you plan on moving artwork, antiques, electronics, or anything of real value, you’ll have to have something more. And you can get it: all sorts of rugged specialty crates, boxes, and packing materials, many of which can be custom-fit to objects of practically any size and form. Assuming all moving trucks are alike … You have it on good authority that all moving trucks are not created equal. Specialty items like yours need specialty trucks. And A-1 Freeman’s got ’em. These specialty trucks of ours have design [[features|elements]|attributes]63] that severely curb the movement of your possessions during transport. That, plus your possessions being packed in specialty materials, is your assurance that we’ll get them to your new home in mint condition. Assuming your valued possession is so “out there”, no one could have any idea how to move it … You’d be amazed by what our people at A-1 Freeman can move! Specialty shipments are our … uh … well … specialty. So, before you abandon your special thing, considering it too special for hauling, give us a visit. We’re often trusted to move such treasures as oversized paintings in hefty frames, statuary, fragile collectibles and bric-a-brac, expensive antiques, and complex electronics – even relatively gigantic things like boats! Still wary of how we might transport your treasured item? Consult with us and we’ll give you details on how we’d get it done. We expect you’ll be happy! Now that we’ve got those negative assumptions out of the way, let’s spend a little more time looking at the positive side of the picture. 5 Reasons People Move With Killeen’s A-1 Freeman Moving Group These days you have all kinds of options for long-distance moving – everything from using budget U-Hauls for a DIY move, to employing a pod provider where you pack and they drive, to acquiring the comprehensive services of a leading van line.
