Your Mover Wears A Lot of Hats--These Are the Big Ones

Moving to a new homeBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Anyone who has ever moved realizes what an emotionally charged time it is--saying farewell to your house, your friends, job, community--is reasonably overwhelming. But what most of us don't know, at least not right away, will be the function that your moving company in Houston takes on in aiding you through the moving transition.

Professional movers are the best multi-taskers of the world. The following are just a few of the hats they wear, and off the books support they provide.


The moving staff chief may not have a master’s degree in psychology (don't dismiss it), but he's dedicated a lot of time around folks in transition, and he's listened to everything. As a result, it's very crucial that you select a moving company in Houston which you feel comfortable with. When you crumble walking from your (now teen's) first nursery for the last time, that is the shoulder you cry--or at the very least sniff a lot--on. When you're attempting to figure out whether or not to keep hold of a genuinely ugly reclining chair which you got when you had been first married and you weren't able to afford something more attractive, that's the someone you go to for assistance. When you're questioning if it's fine to toss out the items your mother-in-law gives you for Christmas and you aren't keen on, he will be your Dear Abby. Pick wisely--a great moving crew will be worth its weight in gold…and therapy.


One of the grand mysteries of life is how a sofa which slid within your family room like the renowned greased pig has exploded to proportions which make you believe you're basically going to need to leave it for the new house owners. Enter your moving company. They know the best way to set up the crew in the appropriate angles so your big comfortable sofa turns the corner like it truly is on wheels. Also they are good with determining the quantity of boxes you'll have (take your estimate and double it) as well as determining the size truck it will require to carry it all.

One of the first questions you will get is, "The number of bedrooms?". This gives them an approximate understanding of the furnishings you have-- a four-bedroom home is much more likely to include multiple living areas when compared to a two-bedroom flat. If you have any large pieces, submit a photo with measurements. The more info you can offer them beforehand, the more precise the estimates shall be.

The Chippendale's Apprentice

Thomas Chippendale--get your head out of the gutter. Chippendale was a master furniture creator in the 1700s, and his renowned design is still the final word in stylish rooms. At any rate, most of your household furniture was constructed from several parts, and the best method to move it is to disassemble it. In case your furniture is more Ikea as compared to exquisite, you still need a pro to take that stuff apart--it is more complicated than traditional pieces which have recognizable bolts and screws.

Have some baggies on hand for the screws, bolts, and whatnot that you'll need to put stuff together again.


Once every one of the tables and bed frames are disassembled, the dresser drawers are bare, and the pans and pots are packed, it has all got to end up in the truck. Now is the moment your moving company in Houston truly shines--they are space planning prodigies. Experienced crews operate similar to a well-oiled machine. They know what to put on the moving truck first, the best way to manage all of it to be sure the weight is evenly allocated, and everything is in the appropriate spot once the trip has ended and the truck pulls into your new driveway.
