All Moving Labor in Houston is Not Created Equal

Moving LaborWhen confronting the job of moving, you might think to yourself, "I'd prefer to not move that," and "I don't want to take forty trips up and down the stairs."

With that in mind, you may be ready to let anyone tote those boxes for you. It does not make a difference who does it, just so you do not have to do it, right?  Wait just a minute.

Just because someone can carry boxes and is willing to lug boxes doesn't mean you want to let them move your boxes. Remember: you are allowing these people in your home. They’re putting their hands on all of your possessions.  You need to be selective who comes into your home.

Here are a few things to ponder when selecting moving labor in Houston to ensure safety for you and your stuff.

Professionally Certified

This is imperative. Professionally certified movers in Houston have submitted to comprehensive background screening, so you can rest assured they are who they say they are, and they are trustworthy. Never hire a moving company in Houston who doesn’t carry this certification. It is crucial for your own peace of mind.

Years of Experience

If you accept a buddy's offer to assist you move or hire the cheapest moving labor you can turn up on Craigslist, you're opening yourself up to some risks. Even if everyone is absolutely trustworthy, they do not naturally have the needed know-how when it comes to moving heavy furniture, boxes and more. What would happen if one of them scratches the wall with the recliner? What would happen if they smash your good china?

And do they have the knowledge to load it all in the truck to make the best use of the space and prevent shifting that could cause damage?

Experience is especially crucial if you're also needing packing and unpacking services. There is a correct way (and a wrong way) to pack dishware, crystal, rugs, clothing, appliances and everything else. Things that are too bulky to be boxed should be meticulously padded. Making rookie blunders (or simply being lazy) in this area could cause damage to or complete destruction of your favorite belongings.

We've been doing this for more than four decades. We can pack and move even the most dainty, oddly shaped, or priceless possessions securely and efficiently from origin to destination.

Properly Uniformed

Picture this: It is moving day. There is someone in athletic wear boxing books in the family room. There's one person in jeans packing dishes in the kitchen. And there is someone in cargo pants carrying your television out of the bedroom. All normal, correct?

Except one of them isn't even a mover. It's just a guy who noticed an open door and some preoccupied owners, and he decided to help himself to a new TV.

This is why it's imperative to work with properly uniformed movers. You will know specifically who is part of the moving crew and who isn’t--and it makes it far less likely that someone who's not would dare make an attempt to "help" you move.

Uniforms may seem like a insignificant detail, but they are a vital one.

Further, it's just more professional. A uniform is another sign that your movers are serious about what they do—it is not just a hobby.

Your movers are doing their job, but it's a very personal one. You are trusting them with all of your belongings, everything that makes your house feel like home. Don't hand that over to just anybody.

Best. Move. Ever!
Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
