Your Mover Wears A Lot of Hats--These Are the Big Ones

Moving to a new homeBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Anybody who's ever moved understands how much of an emotionally charged time it is--saying so long to your home, your close friends, job, neighborhood--is justifiably stressful. What many people do not realize, at least not instantly, would be the function that your moving company in Colorado Springs plays in aiding you through the moving transition.

Professional movers are the great multi-taskers of the universe. The following are only a few of the hats they don, and off the books offerings they offer.


The moving staff chief may not have a master’s degree in psychology (don't discount it), but he's devoted a lot of time around persons in transition, and he's heard everything. Consequently, it's so important to choose a moving company in Colorado Springs which you feel comfortable with. If you fall apart going through the (now teenager's) first nursery for the final time, that's the shoulder you cry--or at the very least sniff a lot--on. If you are needing to choose if you should keep hold of a really hideous chair which you got when you were first married and you weren't able to manage something better looking, that is the person you rely on for guidance. When you find yourself pondering whether or not it's fine to pitch out the items your mother-in-law gives you for Christmas and you can't stand, he will be your Dear Abby. Pick wisely--a great moving crew is definitely worth its weight in gold…and therapy.

Math Wizzard

Among the many big secrets of existence is how a sofa which slid within your living room area much like the renowned greased pig has exploded to proportions which will make you think that you're basically going to have to let it stay for the new homeowners. Enter your moving company. They understand the right way to set up the team in the appropriate angles so your huge comfy sofa turns the corner as if it is on wheels. They're also fantastic with determining the number of boxes you'll have (take your guesstimate and double it) in addition to estimating the size moving van it will take to transport it all.

Among the first questions you're going to get is, "How many bedrooms?". This gives them an approximate idea of the pieces of furniture you have-- a four-bedroom house is more likely to include multiple living areas than a two-bedroom condo. In case you have any substantial pieces, submit an image with proportions. The more details you can offer them in advance, the more precise the estimates shall be.

The Chippendale's Apprentice

Thomas Chippendale--get your head out from the gutter. Chippendale was a master furniture maker in the 1700s, and his iconic style is still the final word in stylish rooms. Anyhow, the majority of your pieces of furniture has been assembled from several parts, and the easiest way to move it is to take it apart. When your furnishings are more Ikea than exquisite, you'll still need to have a professional to take that stuff apart--it's more complicated as opposed to traditional items which have recognizable bolts and screws.

Have some baggies at hand for the screws, bolts, and whatnot that you will require to put items back together again.


After every one of the tables and beds have been disassembled, the dresser drawers are bare, and also the pots and pans are packed, it has all got to go in the moving van. Now is the moment your moving company in Colorado Springs definitely shines--they are space arranging geniuses. Experienced crews operate like a well-oiled machine. They understand what to pack in the moving truck to start with, the best way to organize all of it to be sure the weight is uniformly allocated, and everything is in its correct place once the journey is finished and the truck pulls in your new driveway.
