When faced with the burden of moving, you could find yourself thinking, "I'd rather not lift that," and "I don't want to take dozens of trips up and down the stairs."
With that attitude, you could be ready to let anyone lug those boxes for you. It does not matter who does it, as long as you don't have to do it, right? Wrong.
Just because someone can carry boxes and is willing to move boxes does not mean you want to let them lug your boxes. Keep in mind: you're permitting these people in your home. They are putting their hands on all of your stuff. It can't be just anyone.
Here are several things to ponder when selecting moving labor in Colorado Springs to ensure safety for you and your belongings.
This is a key requirement. Professionally certified movers in Colorado Springs have gone through extensive background screening, so you know they are who they say they are, and they are trustworthy. Don’t hire a moving company in Colorado Springs who doesn’t carry this certification. It is crucial for your own peace of mind.
Years of Experience
If you obtain a friend's offer to assist you move or hire the least expensive moving labor you can identify on Craigslist, you are opening yourself up to dangers. Even if everyone is perfectly credible, they do not automatically 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 couch? What would happen if they drop your favorite dishes?
And do they understand how to load it all in the truck to make the best use of the space and prevent shifting that could lead to damage?
Experience is especially crucial if you're also wanting packing and unpacking services. There's a correct way (and an incorrect way) to pack dishware, crystal, rugs, clothing, appliances and everything else. Pieces that are too bulky to be boxed should be carefully padded. Making amateur blunders (or simply being lazy) in this area could cause damage to or complete destruction of your precious belongings.
We've been doing this for more than forty years. We can pack and move even the most dainty, bulky, or priceless things safely and efficiently from here to there.
Picture this: It is moving day. There is someone in athletic wear boxing books in the family room. There is one person in jeans packing dishes in the kitchen. And there is someone in cargo pants carrying your TV out of the bedroom. All good, right?
Except one of them isn't even a mover. It's just a person who saw an open door and some distracted owners, and he decided to help himself to your TV.
This is why it's important to work with properly uniformed movers. You’ll know exactly who is part of the crew and who is not--and it makes it far less likely that someone who is not would dare make an attempt to "help" you move.
Uniforms may seem like a little detail, but they are an important one.
Plus, it's 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 a job, but it's a very personal one. You're trusting them with everything you own, everything that makes your house feel like home. Don't turn that over to just anybody.
