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 Receiving nation attention during the 1960's and 70's, songs and movies about truck driving were major hits. Finding solidarity, truck drivers participated in widespread strikes. Truck drivers from all over opposed the rising cost of fuel. Not to mention this is during the energy crises of 1873 and 1979. In 1980 the Motor Carrier Act drastically deregulated the trucking industry. Since then trucking has come to dominate the freight industry in the latter part of the 20th century. This coincided with what are now known as 'big-box' stores such as Target or Wal-Mart.

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 In 1971, author and director Steven Spielberg, debuted his first feature length film. His made-for-tv film, Duel, portrayed a truck driver as an anonymous stalker. Apparently there seems to be a trend in the 70's to negatively stigmatize truck drivers.

Question In the 20th century, the 1940 film "They Drive by Night" co-starred Humphrey Bogart. He plays an independent driver struggling to become financially stable and economically independent. This is all set during the times of the Great Depression. Yet another film was released in 1941, called "The Gang's All Here". It is a story of a trucking company that's been targeted by saboteurs.

Question The year 1611 marked an important time for trucks, as that is when the word originated. The usage of "truck" referred to the small strong wheels on ships' cannon carriages. Further extending its usage in 1771, it came to refer to carts for carrying heavy loads. In 1916 it became shortened, calling it a "motor truck". While since the 1930's its expanded application goes as far as to say "motor-powered load carrier".

Question A semi-trailer is almost exactly what it sounds like, it is a trailer without a front axle. Proportionally, its weight is supported by two factors. The weight falls upon a road tractor or by a detachable front axle assembly, known as a dolly. Generally, a semi-trailer is equipped with legs, known in the industry as "landing gear". This means it can be lowered to support it when it is uncoupled. In the United States, a trailer may not exceed a length of 57 ft (17.37 m) on interstate highways. However, it is possible to link two smaller trailers together to reach a length of 63 ft (19.20 m).

Question Popular among campers is the use of lightweight trailers, such as aerodynamic trailers. These can be towed by a small car, such as the BMW Air Camper. They are built with the intent to lower the tow of the vehicle, thus minimizing drag.

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 AMSA wanted to help consumers avoid untrustworthy or illegitimate movers. In January 2008, AMSA created the ProMover certification program for its members. As a member, you must have federal interstate operating authority. Members are also required to pass an annual criminal back check, be licensed by the FMCSA, and agree to abide by ethical standards. This would include honesty in advertising and in business transaction with customers. Each must also sign a contract committing to adhere to applicable Surface Transportation Board and FMCSA regulations. AMSA also takes into consideration and examines ownership. They are very strict, registration with state corporation commissions. This means that the mover must maintain at least a satisfactory rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). As one can imagine, those that pass are authorized to display the ProMove logo on the websites and in marketing materials. However, those that fail will be expelled from the program (and AMSA) if they cannot correct discrepancies during probation.

Question The word cargo is in reference to particular goods that are generally used for commercial gain. Cargo transportation is generally meant to mean by ship, boat, or plane. However, the term now applies to all types of freight, now including goods carried by train, van, or truck. This term is now used in the case of goods in the cold-chain, as perishable inventory is always cargo in transport towards its final homeEven when it is held in climate-controlled facilities, it is important to remember perishable goods or inventory have a short life.

Question By the time 2006 came, there were over 26 million trucks on the United States roads, each hauling over 10 billion short tons of freight (9.1 billion long tons). This was representing almost 70% of the total volume of freight. When, as a driver or an automobile drivers, most automobile drivers are largely unfamiliar with large trucks. As as a result of these unaware truck drivers and their massive 18-wheeler's numerous blind spots. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has determined that 70% of fatal automobile/tractor trailer accident happen for a reason. That being the result of "unsafe actions of automobile drivers". People, as well as drivers, need to realize the dangers of such large trucks and pay more attention. Likewise for truck drivers as well.

Question The most basic purpose of a trailer jack is to lift the trailer to a height that allows the trailer to hitch or unhitch to and from the towing vehicle. Trailer jacks may also be used for the leveling of the trailer during storage. To list a few common types of trailer jacks are A-frame jacks, swivel jacks, and drop-leg jacks. Other trailers, such as horse trailers, have a built-in jack at the tongue for this purpose.

Question Ultra light trucks are very easy to spot or acknowledge if you are paying attention. They are often produced variously such as golf cars, for instance, it has internal combustion or a battery electric drive. They usually for off-highway use on estates, golf courses, parks, in stores, or even someone in an electric wheelchair. While clearly not suitable for highway usage, some variations may be licensed as slow speed vehicles. The catch is that they may on operate on streets, usually a body variation of a neighborhood electric vehicle. A few manufacturers produce specialized chassis for this type of vehicle. Meanwhile, Zap Motors markets a version of the xebra electric tricycle. Which, believe it or not, is able to attain a general license in the United States as a motorcycle.

Question Words have always had a different meaning or have been used interchangeably with others across all cultures. In the United States, Canada, and the Philippines the word "truck" is mostly reserved for larger vehicles. Although in Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa, the word "truck" is generally reserved for large vehicles. In Australia and New Zealand, a pickup truck is usually called a ute, short for "utility". While over in South Africa it is called a bakkie (Afrikaans: "small open container"). The United Kingdom, India, Malaysia, Singapore, Ireland, and Hong Kong use the "lorry" instead of truck, but only for medium and heavy types.

Question Light trucks are classified this way because they are car-sized, yet in the U.S. they can be no more than 6,300 kg (13,900 lb). These are used by not only used by individuals but also businesses as well. In the UK they may not weigh more than 3,500 kg (7,700 lb) and are authorized to drive with a driving license for cars. Pickup trucks, popular in North America, are most seen in North America and some regions of Latin America, Asia, and Africa. Although Europe doesn't seem to follow this trend, where the size of the commercial vehicle is most often made as vans.

Question There many reasons for moving, each one with a unique and specific reason as to why. Relocation services, employee relocation, or workforce mobility can create a range of processes. This process of transferring employees, their families, and/or entire departments of a business to a new location can be difficult. Like some types of employee benefits, these matters are dealt with by human resources specialists within a corporation.

Question Known as a truck in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, it is essentially a motor vehicle designed to transport cargo. Otherwise known as a lorry in the United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, and Indian Subcontinent. Trucks vary not only in their types, but also in size, power, and configuration, the smallest being mechanically like an automobile. Commercial trucks may be very large and powerful, configured to mount specialized equipment. These are necessary in the case of fire trucks, concrete mixers, and suction excavators etc.

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.

Question The Department of Transportation (DOT) is the most common government agency that is devoted to transportation in the United States. The DOT is the largest United States agency with the sole purpose of overseeing interstate travel and issue's USDOT Number filing to new carriers. The U.S., Canadian provinces, and many other local agencies have a similar organization in place. This way they can provide enforcement through DOT officers within their respective jurisdictions.
