If you’re preparing to move, you’ve probably mentioned your worries or asked for advice from friends, family, and even coworkers. With the stories so often heard about moving, it can feel like you only have two options. Either you move like a college student, packing your tiny sedan to the brim and planning to live on a futon for years (or, if you’re very lucky, filling a small rental moving truck). The only other option thrown out tends to be going the full-service route and having no control over anything except the destination. Fortunately for those of you who want more flexibility, this isn’t the case at all!
We’re sure you’ve seen those orange and white trucks with different murals on the sides, so you know, intellectually, that there are options between tiny sedan and full service movers. However, it’s important to note that there are further options still, even within the parameters of a full service moving company.
WHAT WE MEAN BY FULL SERVICE
When we use the term “full service movers,” we’re describing a moving company like Primetime Movers. A full service moving company is one that will provide every level of moving needs. This includes:
- Packing services – the moving company will come in and box up everything in your home, or as much as you ask them to pack .
- Furniture hauling – couches are heavy and piano moving is complicated! Get help hauling so you don’t injure yourself.
- Moving truck loading and unloading – if you’re worried about things shifting in transit and your antique armoire being dented irreparably, let the professionals play furniture Tetris so everything makes it safely.
- Moving equipment rental – borrow dollies and tie-downs to make the hauling and transport easier.
- Box purchasing – unless you happen to work retail and have easy access to sturdy boxes, get them from a moving company so you know they’ll serve the necessary protective services.
However, just because full service movers offer these services, you are not required to use them. A good moving company, like Primetime Movers in Memphis, will work with you to customize their moving services based on your moving needs. If you just need help hauling your furniture and driving the truck, it doesn’t make sense to pay for packers and movers who will insist on charging you to box up your things. However, if you have a time crunch or a schedule so busy you can hardly get your kids to all their activities, a full service mover who also offers packing services can save you a lot of time.
PACKERS AND MOVERS SHOULD HELP NOT HINDER
Don’t let yourself be restricted by full service movers who won’t work with you. Ask questions! Make lists ! Customize those moving services to better suit your needs. If you’re moving locally and you’ve got weeks to make it happen, you may not need full service packers and movers.
