Your Mover Wear A Lot of Hats--These Are the Big Ones

Moving to a new homeBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Anyone who has ever moved understands how much of an sentimental time it is--saying goodbye to your home, your close friends, job, neighborhood--is justifiably overwhelming. What many of us do not realize, at least not right away, is the role that your moving company in San Antonio plays in assisting you through the moving transition.

Professional movers are the best multi-taskers of the universe. Below are just a couple of the hats they will don, and off the books services they supply.


The moving crew chief may not have a master’s degree in psychology (do not dismiss it), but he's dedicated a lot of time around people in transition, and he's heard it all. As a result, it's very imperative that you choose a moving company in San Antonio which you feel at ease with. If you crumble going through the (now teen's) first nursery for the final time, this is the shoulder you cry--or at least sniff a lot--on. When you are attempting to figure out if you should hold on to a really hideous chair that you had when you had been first married and you weren't able to pay for something more appealing, that's the individual you rely on for suggestions. When you find yourself wondering if it is ok to toss out the items your mother-in-law gives you for Christmas and you can't stand, he will be your Dear Abby. Pick smartly--a fantastic moving crew is definitely worth its weight in gold…and therapy.


One of the grand mysteries of life is how a couch that slid within your living room just like the renowned greased pig has increased to a size that will make you believe you're really going to need to leave it for the new owners. Enter your moving company. They understand the right way to set up the workers in the right angles so your large comfy couch turns the corner like it truly is on wheels. They are also great with calculating the number of boxes you'll need (take your approximation and double it) and figuring out the size moving truck it's going to take to transport it all.

One of the first questions you're going to get is, "How many bedrooms?". This gives them an approximate understanding of the pieces of furniture you have-- a four-bedroom residence is much more likely to possess multiple living areas than a two-bedroom apartment. For those who have any substantial items, submit a photo with dimensions. The more information you are able to give them up front, the more accurate the estimates are going to be.

The Chippendale's Apprentice

Thomas Chippendale--get your head out from the gutter. Chippendale used to be a master furniture maker in the 1700s, and his iconic design is still the final word in stylish rooms. In any case, most of your household furniture was put together from several pieces, and the easiest way to move it is to take it apart. In case your furniture is more Ikea as opposed to elegant, you still need a professional to take that stuff apart--it's more complex as opposed to standard pieces which have familiar bolts and screws.

Have some baggies at hand for the screws, bolts, and whatnot that you will require to put things back together again.


After all the tables and beds are disassembled, the dresser drawers are bare, and the pans are packed, it's all got to end up in the moving truck. Right now is when your moving company in San Antonio truly excels--they are space arranging geniuses. Knowledgeable crews perform much like a well-oiled machine. They know what to put on the moving van first, how to organize all of it to be sure the weight is consistently dispersed, and everything is in the correct position when the process has ended and the moving van pulls into your new driveway.
