How to Stave Off Epic Failures When Long-Distance Moving Big or Valuable Items to or from Denver

If you’re moving your Denver household and you’ve got to get something really big or special from one point to another, your imagination may be overwhelmed by all the things that could go awry. Disaster isn’t inescapable, though. There are ways around it, and we’ll offer them shortly. First, let’s examine a few assumptions you might be making that can – and often do! – bring about calamity.

man frustrated by moving aloneAssuming you’re justified in “going it alone” …
As the proverb says, if you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together. At A-1 Freeman we say, if you want that large or precious item of yours to reach its destination no worse for the journey, get help: our help.

Assuming you can bubble-wrap anything …
Bubble wrap isn’t some supernatural product that keeps all things from damage. Trust us – it’s our job to know. Oh, sure, bubble wrap can serve as a superb protective barrier for lots of items. But if you’re considering moving artwork, antiques, electronics, or anything of real value, yourequire a little extra. And it’s out there: all types of strong specialty crates, boxes, and packing materials, many of which can be custom-fit to objects of just about any size and form.

Assuming all moving trucks are alike …
Take it from us, all moving trucks are not created equal. Specialty items like yours need specialty trucks. And A-1 Freeman’s got ’em. These specialty trucks of ours have design [[features|elements]|attributes]63] that severely restrict the movement of your goods during transport. That, plus your goods being packed in specialty materials, should convince you that we’ll get them to your new home in pristine condition.

Assuming your valued item is so unique, no one could have any idea how to transport it …
You’d be surprised by what our crews at A-1 Freeman can move! Specialty shipments are our … uh … well … specialty. So, before you consign your special thing to the pawn shop, considering it too special for hauling, give us a visit. We’re often relied upon to move such treasures as large paintings in bulky frames, statuary, delicate collectibles and bric-a-brac, priceless antiques, and complicated electronics – even massive things like boats! Still wary of how we might move your valuable item? Talk with us and we’ll show you clearly how we’d take care of it. We think you’ll be comforted!

Now that we’ve got those pessimistic assumptions out of the way, let’s look longer at the positive side of the picture.

Best. Move. Ever!
Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
