All Moving Labor in San Antonio is Not Created Equal04/14/2018When faced with the responsibility of moving, you might think to yourself, "I'd rather not lift that," and "I do not want to take dozens of trips up and down the stairs." With that attitude, you could be ready to let anyone lug those boxes for you. It doesn't matter who does it, so long as you don't have to do it, right? Wrong. Just because someone can move boxes and is willing to move boxes doesn't mean you want to let them move your boxes. Keep in mind: you are allowing these people in your house. They’re putting their hands on everything you own. Read that last sentence again. Here are some points to think about when selecting moving labor in San Antonio to ensure safety for you and your belongings. Professionally Certified This is a key requirement. Professionally certified movers in San Antonio have submitted to comprehensive background screening, so you can rest assured they are who they say they are, and they are trustworthy. Think twice before hiring a moving company in San Antonio without this certification. It's necessary for your own peace of mind. Years of Experience If you accept a friend's offer to assist you move or hire the bargain moving labor you can identify on Craigslist, you're opening yourself up to liabilities. Even if everyone is perfectly honest, they don't necessarily have the needed training when it comes to moving heavy furniture, boxes and more. What would happen if one of them dings the wall with the couch? What will happen if they drop your favorite dishes? And do they understand how to put it all in the truck to maximize the space and prevent shifting that could cause damage? Experience is especially vital if you're also looking for packing and unpacking services. There is a right way (and an incorrect way) to pack glass, crystal, rugs, clothing, appliances and more. Things that are too big to be boxed should be meticulously padded. Making amateur blunders (or just being lazy) in this area could cause damage to or complete destruction of your favorite things. A-1 Freeman Moving Group has been doing this for more than four decades. We can pack and move even the most dainty, bulky, or priceless items securely and efficiently from origin to destination. Properly Uniformed Think about this: It's moving day. There's someone in athletic wear boxing books in the family room. There is someone in jeans packing dishes in the kitchen. And there is someone else in cargo pants carrying your TV out of the bedroom. All good, correct? Except one of them isn't even a mover. It is just a person who noticed an open door and some inattentive owners, and he decided to help himself to a new TV. This is why it is important to hire a moving company with properly uniformed movers. You will know specifically who is part of the process and who isn’t--and it makes it much less likely that someone who is not would dare make an attempt to "help" you move. Uniforms may seem like a little touch, but they're a crucial one. Further, it's just more professional. A uniform is another clue that your movers are serious about what they do—it's not just a hobby. Your movers are doing their job, but it's a very personal one. You're entrusting them with all of your earthly possessions, all of the things that makes your house feel like home. Do not turn that over to just anybody.
