All Moving Labor in Colorado Springs is Not Created Equal

Moving LaborWhen face to face with the task of moving, you could 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 in mind, 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 permitting these people in your house. They are putting their hands on all of your stuff.  You need to be selective who comes into your home.

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

Professionally Certified

This is very important. Professionally certified movers in Colorado Springs have submitted to comprehensive 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 background check their labor. It is crucial for your own well-being.

Years of Experience

If you take a friend's offer to assist you move or employ the least expensive 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 automatically 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 happens 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 foolish mistakes (or simply being lazy) in this area could cause damage to or complete destruction of your favorite items.

Properly Uniformed

Think about 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 someone in cargo pants carrying your TV out of the bedroom. All good, correct?

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

Therefore, it is essential to hire a moving company with properly uniformed movers. You will know exactly 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 earthly possessions, everything that makes your house feel like home. Don't turn that over to just anybody.
