All Moving Labor in Austin is Not Created Equal

Moving LaborWhen face to face with 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 could be ready to let anyone tote those boxes for you. It does not make a difference who does it, so long as 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 permitting these people in your home. They’re putting their hands on all of your possessions.  It can't be just anyone.

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

Professionally Certified

This is very important. Professionally certified movers in Austin have submitted to thorough background screening, so you can rest assured they are who they say they are, and they can be trusted. Think twice before hiring a moving company in Austin who doesn’t carry this certification. It is necessary 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 training 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 favorite dishes?

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 vital if you're also needing packing and unpacking services. There is a correct way (and a wrong way) to pack glass, crystal, rugs, clothing, appliances and everything else. Items that are too big to be boxed should be meticulously padded. Making foolish blunders (or simply being lazy) in this area could cause damage to or complete destruction of your favorite things.

We've been doing this for more than 40 years. We can pack and move even the most fragile, 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 someone else in jeans packing dishes in the kitchen. And there is one person 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 someone 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 is 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 earthly possessions, everything that makes your house feel like home. Don't hand that over to just anybody.
