All Moving Labor in Colorado Springs is Not Created Equal

Moving LaborWhen face to face with the task of moving, you might think to yourself, "I would prefer to not move that," and "I do not want to take 40 trips up and down the stairs."

With that mentality, you could be ready to let anyone lug those boxes for you. It doesn't make a difference who does it, as long as you don't have to do it, right?  Not so fast.

Just because someone can move boxes and is willing to carry boxes doesn't mean you should let them carry your boxes. Remember this: you are allowing these people in your house. They are putting their hands on all of your stuff.  It can't be just anyone.

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

Professionally Certified

This is imperative. Professionally certified movers in Colorado Springs have submitted to thorough background screening, so you can be assured they are who they say they are, and they are trustworthy. Don’t hire a moving company in Colorado Springs who doesn’t background check their labor. It is necessary for your own well-being.

Years of Experience

If you take a buddy's offer to assist you move or employ the cheapest moving labor you can turn up on Craigslist, you are opening yourself up to some risks. Even if everyone is perfectly trustworthy, they don't necessarily have the needed training when it comes to moving heavy furniture, boxes and more. What happens if one of them scratches the wall with the recliner? What will happen if they break your grandmother's dishes?

And do they understand how to put it all in the truck to maximize the space and prevent shifting that could cause breakage?

Experience is especially crucial if you are also needing packing and unpacking services. There is a correct way (and an incorrect way) to pack china, crystal, rugs, clothing, appliances and everything else. Items that are too big to be boxed should be carefully padded. Making rookie mistakes (or simply being lazy) in this area could cause damage to or complete destruction of your favorite items.

Properly Uniformed

Imagine this: It is moving day. There is one person in athletic wear boxing books in the living room. There is someone in jeans packing glassware in the kitchen. And there's one person in cargo pants carrying your TV out of the bedroom. All okay, correct?

Except one of them is not even a mover. It is just someone who noticed an open door and some inattentive owners, and he decided to help himself to your TV.

Therefore, it is important to hire a moving company with properly uniformed movers. You will know precisely who is part of the process and who is not--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 little detail, but they are an important one.

Further, it's just more professional. A uniform is another indication that your movers are serious about what they do—it's not just a hobby.

Your movers are doing their job, but it's a very personal one. You're trusting them with all of your belongings, everything that makes your house feel like home. Don't turn that over to just anybody.
