All Moving Labor in Austin is Not Created Equal

Moving LaborWhen faced with the responsibility of moving, you may think to yourself, "I'd prefer to not lift that," and "I do not want to take dozens of trips up and down the stairs."

With that attitude, you could be ready to let anyone carry those boxes for you. It does not matter who does it, so long as you do not have to do it, correct?  Wrong.

Just because someone can move boxes and is willing to lug boxes doesn't mean you want to let them carry your boxes. Remember: you are allowing these people in your residence. They are putting their hands on everything you own.  Read that last sentence again.

Here are a few points to think about when choosing moving labor in Austin to ensure safety and security for you and your possessions.

Professionally Certified

This is very important. Professionally certified movers in Austin have gone through extensive background screening, so you know they are who they say they are, and they can be trusted. Never hire a moving company in Austin without this certification. It's necessary for your own well-being.

Years of Experience

If you accept a buddy's offer to assist you move or employ the bargain moving labor you can turn up on Craigslist, you are opening yourself up to some risks. Even if everyone is perfectly credible, they do not naturally have the needed know-how when it comes to moving awkward furniture, boxes and more. What will happen if one of them scratches the wall with the dresser? What happens if they break your favorite dishes?

And do they understand how to put it all in the truck to make the best use of the space and prevent shifting that could lead to breakage?

Experience is particularly important if you are also looking for packing and unpacking services. There is a correct way (and an incorrect way) to pack glass, crystal, rugs, clothing, appliances and everything else. Items that are too large to be boxed should be meticulously padded. Making amateur blunders (or simply being lazy) in this arena could cause damage to or complete destruction of your favorite things.

We've been moving things safely for more than forty years. We can pack and move even the most delicate, bulky, or priceless items securely and efficiently from Point A to Point B.

Properly Uniformed

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

Except one of them isn't even a mover. It is just someone who saw an open door and some distracted owners, and he decided to help himself to a new TV.

Therefore, it's imperative to hire a moving company with properly uniformed movers. You will know precisely who is part of the 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 minute touch, but they're a vital one.

Further, it's just more professional. A uniform is another clue 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. Do not 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.
