1. Why Should I Hire a Professional?

Hiring a professional moving service is an ideal way to have property moved from one place to another, regardless of how far. There is no reason a person should have to stress more by moving everything out of their home or property on their own. There are a ton of moving companies out there for people to choose from.

The key to hiring the right professional moving service includes reading the reviews and ratings of other customers. This will give a person insight on how reliable and trustworthy a company is. Contacting or visiting moving companies' websites is also a great way to find a company to hire. Inquire about all of the services offered and evaluate which services would be of good use to your move.

2. Professional Moving Companies: Making the Difference

When it comes to moving, it's important to assess what your needs and wants are before you go into the move. Many people opt to cut corners with their moves and may think they can do it themselves or even worse get a budget moving company. The old saying goes if something seems too good to be true it usually is.


Let me tell you that definitely holds true with moving companies. Sometimes the reason that their quotes are so low is that they are operating without proper licensing or equipment. It's true that companies in an over saturated market offer competitive pricing, but if one mover in the bunch is offering prices that are way below the others it's probably not going to save you money in the end if your things do not arrive safe and sound.


This is why it is best to get a professional moving service. Pro movers take the time to dot all the I’s and cross all the T’s. A Pro mover will take into consideration the unforeseen circumstances. To make sure that your move is as stress-free as possible.


Pro movers are the right choice for someone with a demanding job that has less time to spare. There are services that will also take out trash items from your old home, and even unpack boxes in your new home. Obviously, this is a premium service but if you are living a life where time is money, this may be the best option for you. You may want to look into full-service movers cost. 


Specifically, if your move is based on either taking a new job or being relocated within your current corporate structure.
Professional moving services will even offer insurance for any high-value items you may have and storage options if there is any delay in your arrival or need to hold off moving new items in. Whatever the reason, pro moving service are a great option for many.

3. Benefits of Hiring Pro's

Corporate Relocation Questions Answered


With the above being said, it is always a wise decision to consider all of the possible options for your upcoming move. Professional moving services are definitely something to keep in mind. With all of the companies available, make sure to compare them and find one that you can trust with your property.

When all is said and done, all of the belongings will be safely taken to their new home whether it is an office building, company, or home. Of course, this is all relative to the fact that you had already done research and found a professional company known for their great services and trustworthiness.

4. Components for a Successful Move

When you are moving there are so many factors to keep in mind for the transportation of all of your belongings. It is important to ensure that you find the right crew for the job and one of the biggest challenges can be if you are moving a piano. When you find the right moving company that can handle moving your piano it should be music to your ears.
 
When it comes to moving your piano not all movers are created equal. If you simply hire a regular moving service, one that does not specifically specialize or own the proper equipment to move your grandmas piano or your baby grand you may find yourself the subject of a really sad song.
 
Pianos can weigh anywhere from a couple hundred pounds to over 1,000 lbs. so I would assume you, the mover, have already realized that this is no easy task (or one you could do yourself). Piano movers don’t use the standard dollies to move your instrument. Pianos are not a normal piece of furniture but instead, they have wires, keys, pedals and so many moving parts.
 
Often times if the piano is moving down a flight of stairs or through narrow doorways it may need someone who knows the ins and outs of the piano to understand how to navigate this type of space. Often times it is simply impossible, because of the shape and size of your piano and your house to move the piano without having it somewhat dismantled.
 
This may sound insanely scary to you because most people who own pianos or play them have a deeply sentimental connection to them. This is exactly why it is important to find proper piano movers near you. They will actually be skilled in how to move your piano with finesse, as well as being able to put the instrument back together again.
 
If a company does not specifically advertise they move pianos they probably are not the right company for the job. If they do not ask proper questions about your piano prior to moving, like what type of piano it is, the age, etc. then they are far from piano aficionados.
 
Move your piano the proper way by doing your homework. And don’t worry if your piano sounds a bit out of tune a few days after the move because this is normal. All of the movement, even when done properly, can upset the keys and the sounds. If it is a long move, the biggest effect on a piano is temperature flocculation when it comes to sound. Pianos always need to be tuned after each move. Good luck with your move and find the right movers to move a piano.

Good Day,
I have heard of so many stories where property gets damaged by the move and the moving company only pays a fraction of the price that the items were worth, if they pay anything at all. What would you suggest would be the safest way to ensure that we have proper insurance?

Is there any way to find out if the mover you choose to move your business has experience moving other businesses? I want to use a mover but I also want one that is experienced in moving large corporate businesses as we are on a time limit with our move. We want our move to take up the least amount of time possible. Is there any way we can check their history with moves? Thanks!

Did You Know

Question In American English, the word "truck" has historically been preceded by a word describing the type of vehicle, such as a "tanker truck". In British English, preference would lie with "tanker" or "petrol tanker".

Question Alongside the many different trailers provided are motorcycle trailers. They are designed to haul motorcycles behind an automobile or truck. Depending on size and capability, some trailer may be able to carry several motorcycles or perhaps just one. They specifically designed this trailer to meet the needs of motorcyclists. They carry motorcycles, have ramps, and include tie-downs. There may be a utility trailer adapted permanently or occasionally to haul one or more motorcycles.

Question In the United States, shipments larger than about 7,000 kg (15,432 lb) are classified as truckload freight (TL). It is more efficient and affordable for a large shipment to have exclusive use of one larger trailer. This is opposed to having to share space on a smaller Less than Truckload freight carrier.

Question The public idea of the trucking industry in the United States popular culture has gone through many transformations. However, images of the masculine side of trucking are a common theme throughout time. The 1940's first made truckers popular, with their songs and movies about truck drivers. Then in the 1950's they were depicted as heroes of the road, living a life of freedom on the open road. Trucking culture peaked in the 1970's as they were glorified as modern days cowboys, outlaws, and rebels. Since then the portrayal has come with a more negative connotation as we see in the 1990's. Unfortunately, the depiction of truck drivers went from such a positive depiction to that of troubled serial killers.

Question Trucks of the era mostly used two-cylinder engines and had a carrying capacity of 1,500 to 2,000 kilograms (3,300 to 4,400 lb). In 1904, 700 heavy trucks were built in the United States, 1000 in 1907, 6000 in 1910, and 25000 in 1914. A Benz truck modified by Netphener company (1895)

Question Many modern trucks are powered by diesel engines, although small to medium size trucks with gas engines exist in the United States. The European Union rules that vehicles with a gross combination of mass up to 3,500 kg (7,716 lb) are also known as light commercial vehicles. Any vehicles exceeding that weight are known as large goods vehicles.

Question In 1978 Sylvester Stallone starred in the film "F.I.S.T.". The story is loosely based on the 'Teamsters Union'. This union is a labor union which includes truck drivers as well as its then president, Jimmy Hoffa.

Question The interstate moving industry in the United States maintains regulation by the FMCSA, which is part of the USDOT. With only a small staff (fewer than 20 people) available to patrol hundreds of moving companies, enforcement is difficult. As a result of such a small staff, there are in many cases, no regulations that qualify moving companies as 'reliable'. Without this guarantee, it is difficult to a consumer to make a choice. Although, moving companies can provide and often display a DOT license.

Question As we know in the trucking industry, some trailers are part of large trucks, which we call semi-trailer trucks for transportation of cargo. Trailers may also be used in a personal manner as well, whether for personal or small business purposes.

Question The United States' Interstate Highway System is full of bypasses and loops with the designation of a three-digit number. Usually beginning with an even digit, it is important to note that this pattern is highly inconsistent. For example, in Des Moines, Iowa the genuine bypass is the main route. More specifically, it is Interstate 35 and Interstate 80, with the loop into downtown Des Moines being Interstate 235. As it is illustrated in this example, they do not always consistently begin with an even number. However, the 'correct' designation is exemplified in Omaha, Nebraska. In Omaha, Interstate 480 traverses the downtown area, which is bypassed by Interstate 80, Interstate 680, and Interstate 95. Interstate 95 then in turn goes through Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Furthermore, Interstate 295 is the bypass around Philadelphia, which leads into New Jersey. Although this can all be rather confusing, it is most important to understand the Interstate Highway System and the role bypasses play.

Question

The Federal Bridge Gross Weight Formula is a mathematical formula used in the United States to determine the appropriate gross weight for a long distance moving vehicle, based on the axle number and spacing. Enforced by the Department of Transportation upon long-haul truck drivers, it is used as a means of preventing heavy vehicles from damaging roads and bridges. This is especially in particular to the total weight of a loaded truck, whether being used for commercial moving services or for long distance moving services in general.
 
According to the Federal Bridge Gross Weight Formula, the total weight of a loaded truck (tractor and trailer, 5-axle rig) cannot exceed 80,000 lbs in the United States. Under ordinary circumstances, long-haul equipment trucks will weight about 15,000 kg (33,069 lbs). This leaves about 20,000 kg (44,092 lbs) of freight capacity. Likewise, a load is limited to the space available in the trailer, normally with dimensions of 48 ft (14.63 m) or 53 ft (16.15 m) long, 2.6 m (102.4 in) wide, 2.7 m (8 ft 10.3 in) high and 13 ft 6 in or 4.11 m high.

Question

In the moving industry, transportation logistics management is incredibly important. Essentially, it is the management that implements and controls efficiency, the flow of storage of goods, as well as services. This includes related information between the point of origin and the point of consumption to meet customer's specifications. Logistics is quite complex but can be modeled, analyzed, visualized, and optimized by simulation software. Generally, the goal of transportation logistics management is to reduce or cut the use of such resources. A professional working in the field of moving logistics management is called a logistician.

Question

The FMCSA has established rules to maintain and regulate the safety of the trucking industry. According to FMCSA rules, driving a goods-carrying CMV more than 11 hours or to drive after having been on duty for 14 hours, is illegal. Due to such heavy driving, they need a break to complete other tasks such as loading and unloading cargo, stopping for gas and other required vehicle inspections, as well as non-working duties such as meal and rest breaks. The 3-hour difference between the 11-hour driving limit and 14 hour on-duty limit gives drivers time to take care of such duties. In addition, after completing an 11 to 14 hour on duty period, the driver much be allowed 10 hours off-duty.

Question In 1986 Stephen King released horror film "Maximum Overdrive", a campy kind of story. It is really about trucks that become animated due to radiation emanating from a passing comet. Oddly enough, the trucks force humans to pump their diesel fuel. Their leader is portrayed as resembling Spider-Man's antagonist Green Goblin.

Question The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) issues Hours of Service regulations. At the same time, they govern the working hours of anyone operating a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) in the United States. Such regulations apply to truck drivers, commercial and city bus drivers, and school bus drivers who operate CMVs. With these rules in place, the number of daily and weekly hours spent driving and working is limited. The FMCSA regulates the minimum amount of time drivers must spend resting between driving shifts. In regards to intrastate commerce, the respective state's regulations apply.

Question In order to load or unload bots and other cargo to and from a trailer, trailer winches are designed for this purpose. They consist of a ratchet mechanism and cable. The handle on the ratchet mechanism is then turned to tighten or loosen the tension on the winch cable. Trailer winches vary, some are manual while others are motorized. Trailer winches are most typically found on the front of the trailer by towing an A-frame.

Question Driver's licensing has coincided throughout the European Union in order to for the complex rules to all member states. Driving a vehicle weighing more than 7.5 tons (16,535 lb) for commercial purposes requires a certain license. This specialist licence type varies depending on the use of the vehicle and number of seat. Licences first acquired after 1997, the weight was reduced to 3,500 kilograms (7,716 lb), not including trailers.

Question In the United States and Canada, the cost for long-distance moves is generally determined by a few factors. The first is the weight of the items to be moved and the distance it will go. Cost is also based on how quickly the items are to be moved, as well as the time of the year or month which the move occurs. In the United Kingdom and Australia, it's quite different. They base price on the volume of the items as opposed to their weight. Keep in mind some movers may offer flat rate pricing.
