The first thing we recommend to our clients,especially for long distance out of state moves,is to get garbage bags. Before moving boxes and get rid of or sell everything you dont need!Clothing that doesnt fit,broken toys,crafts,outdated electronics ,magazines etc etc.
Most people when they get into the packing mode just start throwing everything in sight into boxes and taping them closed,only to find out when they reach their new home thats its stuff they dont need or want anymore.Now they have paid to pack it load it,carry it cross state lines,unload it,,unpack it,only to find out its useless and throw it away.1,000 miles away from where it was.what a waste of time and money!We are happy to give Long Distance Movers Advice to our clients.This is the best way to save money on your long distance relocation without investing a dime only some time.Most moving companies just want to move you quickly ,get paid and move on to the next relocation.
These are the cheaper moving companies running many trucks with underpaid,inexperienced workers,trying to do volume low quality moves to makeup for the low profit margin.This is also where most of the moving complaints and moving problems come from.To do this business correctly and satisfy every mover,it must be done slowly,methodically,steadily,and with experienced,well paid personnel who care about their work,their clients and their job in the long run,consistantly.
Many of the larger moving companies with many trucks have a huge underpaid workforce and turnover,many even hire day laborers when they run short,especially in the busy season which means that basically inexperienced homeless people are handling and have access to your belongings.Isnt that comforting??Well its true,thats where the stories of smelly,arrogent,hungover if not drunk movers are born,and unfortunatly it happens every day.
Thats why we run a small fleet of well kept and well staffed moving trucks and movers that know what their doing and more importantly they are well trained to work together and very well supervised and vetted.Our workers and office staff are happy to give long distance movers advice because we care about our clients.
