When you think of the average moving company, you probably imagine their workers coming into your home and loading your boxes into the moving truck. After loading and driving to the new location, the workers will unload your boxes and go on with their day. But did you know that there are three surprising services that some of the more professional companies offer?
These services can make your move a lot easier. You can focus on what’s important to you and make the move more convenient. Here are the services that you can expect to find from the professional movers.
Service #1: Packing and Unpacking
Organizing and packing for a move can be one of the most frustrating parts of moving. But did you know that some moving companies can actually take care of this for you? They can help you organize everything, label it for later, and put in the proper moving boxes for transport.
In addition, they usually also offer unpacking services as well. Unpacking after a move can be exhausting, especially if it’s a long-distance move. The movers can work with you to make sure that everything is unpacked in the proper rooms. If you have an idea of where things should belong in the new location, the process of unpacking can finish even faster.
This is a great service for businesses as well. Business owners that are moving into new offices want to get set up as soon as possible. Delays in moving and unpacking means they’ll have to put a hold on their business. Movers can make this transition smooth so that business owners can resume operations.
Service #2: Storage Services
A common problem that you may be dealing with is the issue of storage. There may be a lot of belongings and even furniture that you have no space for in your new place. If you don’t want to throw your belongings away, the only option you have is to leave it with a storage company.
However, this means that you have to deal with another company to handle your belongings. Most of the storage companies also will not deliver your storage items to your new location. And if they do, they’ll charge you a very high rate. Fortunately, many professional movers offer storage services.
They’ll put your belongings in their warehouse. When you’re ready to bring it into your new location, the company can move it out and drop it off. It’s a much better solution than many of the DIY storage companies that will force you to handle everything yourself.
Service #3: Junk Removal
Junk removal is yet another issue you’ll come across during the process of moving. There are going to be a lot of belongings that you want to throw away. But items like furniture, appliances, and electronics cannot just be dumped for sanitation workers to pick up. You need to dispose of your junk properly.
Some moving companies will deal with junk removal so that you don’t have to deal with all the complications of disposing of your junk in the right manner. Electronics will be sent to the proper recycling centers. Furniture can be donated to charities or be taken to the city landfill.
Normally, you’ll have to hire a junk removal company to take care of this job. But why deal with more than one company for your move? It’s easier to let your moving company take care of the junk removal. You may also save money by working with the moving company. The company’s rate may be cheaper or you may get a special offer since you’re using multiple services.
Surprised at how much more a professional moving company can offer? These services can make your move easier and more convenient. You can get rid of the stress that comes with moving. So look for companies that offer these services if you want a seamless move.
