How to Avoid Epic Failures When Long-Distance Moving Big or Priceless Possessions to or from Colorado Springs

If you’re moving your Colorado Springs household and you’ve got to get something really big or truly priceless from one point to another, your imagination may be working overtime on all the things that could go wrong. Tragedy isn’t inescapable, though. There are ways around it, and we’ll look at them in a minute. First, let’s examine a handful of assumptions you might be making that can – and often do! – result in catastrophe.

man frustrated by moving aloneAssuming you’ll be just fine “going it alone” …
As the proverb relates, if you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together. At A-1 Freeman we say, if you want that large or priceless thing of yours to reach its destination no worse for the journey, get help: our help.

Assuming you can bubble-wrap anything …
Bubble wrap isn’t some magical material that keeps all things from damage. Trust us – it’s our job to know. Oh, sure, bubble wrap can be an excellent protective barrier for a lot of items. But if you plan on moving artwork, antiques, electronics, or anything of exceptional value, you need a little more. And it’s out there: all kinds of sturdy specialty crates, boxes, and packing materials, many of which can be custom-fit to objects of nearly any size and shape.

Assuming all moving trucks are the same …
You have it on good authority that all moving trucks are not created equal. Specialty items like yours need specialty trucks. And A-1 Freeman’s got ’em. These specialty trucks of ours have design [[features|elements]|attributes]63] that severely restrict the movement of your goods during transport. That, plus your goods being packed in specialty materials, should give you every confidence that we’ll get them to your new home in mint condition.

Assuming your treasured possession is so unique, no one could a clue about how to ship it …
You’d be surprised by what our crews at A-1 Freeman can move! Specialty shipments are our … uh … well … specialty. So, before you resign yourself to leaving your special thing behind, thinking it’s too special for transport, see us. We’re often engaged to move such valuables as oversized paintings in bulky frames, statuary, fragile collectibles and bric-a-brac, costly antiques, and intricate electronics – even relatively gigantic things like boats! Still unsure of how we might transport your valuable item? Get together with us and we’ll give you details on how we’d take care of it. We’re confident you’ll be pleased!

Now that we’ve addressed those defeating, let’s spend a bit more time looking at the positive side of the picture.

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.
