4 Essential Services Provided By Professional Moving Companies

Posted on: 19 April 2022


If you have a busy schedule or don't want to do the heavy lifting when relocating, hiring a moving company is advisable. Residential moving companies cater to most if not all aspects of your relocation.

Residential movers pack, load, deliver and unpack all your belongings. If you hire a residential mover, here are several services you should expect.

1. Packing

Many residential movers provide free packing materials as part of their services. In some cases, unique packing materials can cost extra if they are hard to source. So, inform the movers about any unique packing materials you might need. Delicate pieces of art or pets need special packing materials. The unique packing materials ensure they don't incur any damage or harm during transit.

Residential movers also provide packing services. They can pack all your belongings, including clothes, electronics, and kitchenware.

If you want to cut the billable hours, consider packing some of your belongings. You can pack your clothes and let the movers pack delicate items to save time and money.

2. Dismantling and Reassembling Furniture

Furniture such as beds, tables, and couches is difficult to load and transport. The assembled pieces of furniture occupy too much space in the mover truck. Residential movers dismantle your furniture to ensure it fits in a mover truck. The movers then reassemble the furniture at your new home, thus saving you time and effort.

When hiring a residential mover, always ask for estimates. Estimates provide an idea of the billable hours for dismantling and reassembling furniture thus enabling you to budget ahead of time.

3. Loading and Unloading

Residential movers do all the heavy lifting for you. The movers pick up all your belongings from your old home, carry them to the mover truck, and ensure they are securely fastened for transit. 

The movers also unload and carry your items into your new house. This way, you avoid injuries such as a sprained back, because the residential movers do all the heavy lifting.

4. Unpacking, Arranging, and Storage

Residential movers offer the option of unpacking and arranging your belongings. The movers can unpack your items and arrange the furniture, closet, and kitchen cabinets. They also install or reconnect your electric appliances.

Some full-service residential movers also provide self-storage facilities. If all your belongings can't fit in your new house you might need a storage unit. The movers can find you a self-storage unit and help you deliver your items to the unit.
