How to Stave Off Epic Failures When Long-Distance Moving Bulky or Valuable Possessions to or from Colorado Springs04/14/2017If you’re moving your Colorado Springs household and you’ve got to get something really massive or truly priceless from point A to point B, your imagination may be working overtime on all the things that could fail. Disaster isn’t a forgone conclusion, though. There are ways around it, and we’ll present them directly. First, let’s review a few assumptions you may be indulging that can – and often do! – result in disaster. Assuming you’re just fine “going it alone” … As the old adage 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 special item of yours to reach its destination in pristine condition, get help: our help. Assuming you can bubble-wrap anything … Bubble wrap isn’t some magical product that safeguards all things from damage. Believe us – it’s our job to know. Oh, sure, bubble wrap can be a great protective barrier for a lot of items. But if you’re thinking of shipping artwork, antiques, electronics, or anything of exceptional value, you’ll have to have a bit extra. And it’s available: all kinds of tough specialty crates, boxes, and packing materials, many of which can be custom-fit to objects of nearly any size and configuration. Assuming all moving trucks are identical … Take it from us, all moving trucks are not created equal. Specialty items like yours require specialty trucks. And A-1 Freeman’s got ’em. These specialty trucks of ours have design [[features|elements]|attributes]63] that severely curtail the movement of your goods during transport. That, plus your goods being packed in specialty materials, should convince you that we’ll deliver them to your new home in the same condition they were in when packed. Assuming your priceless item is so unique, no one could possibly know how to move it … You’d be astounded by what our crews at A-1 Freeman can move! Specialty shipments are our … uh … well … specialty. So, before you consign your special thing to the pawn shop, considering it too special for freightage, give us a ring. We’re often depended on to move such prized possessions as oversized paintings in weighty frames, statuary, delicate collectibles and bric-a-brac, costly antiques, and intricate electronics – even massive things like boats!
