The moving industry has changed quite a bit in recent years. With the advent of websites, storage pods and national freight companies, there are many different types of moving services you can find. Whether you are using a local moving company, a moving website or just renting a truck and doing it yourself there are many ways for the moving industry to help you. Packing, unpacking, loading, unloading, rental trucks, pods, storage, boxes, packing materials, and recycling are just a few of the many different services available and these days you can mix and match any of them to meet your needs. Below I have listed some of the most common services available and the ones, which have been requested most frequently by our customers.
Full Service Move
When you want the moving company to safely pack every item in your home, supply all the boxes, bubble wrap and packing paper. Pad and shrink-wrap all furniture, load, move, unload the truck and unpack as many of the boxes as you want, wherever you want.
This is the most commonly requested service. You pack and box your belongings. They pad and shrink wrap your furniture, load, move and unload the truck at the desired location.
Load & Unload Only
Movers can help you to load or unload your rental truck, storage pod, ABF truck, storage unit or garage. This option is most useful to people who are able to drive a rental truck or who want to use a freight service. While you can save money using this option, you take on the responsibility for your belongings while they are being moved. The moving company, truck rental or freight company will not be responsible for any damage while in transit.
Moving companies can help you to move your business or shop, including furniture, equipment, machinery, stock and records.
Whether you need one piece of furniture moved, or the contents of an entire room reorganized, movers can help you to relocate items within your home.
Felt Pad Service
Many movers can place felt pads under your furniture after they move it to help keep your floors undamaged.
Some companies will recycle boxes and packing materials after use. They can help you to obtain free, clean, sturdy and inspected recycled boxes or plastic bins to help lessen your move’s impact on the environment and your wallet. Some moving company’s trucks run on bio-diesel to reduce emissions.
