How to Forgo Epic Failures When Long-Distance Moving Large or Priceless Things to or from Denver04/14/2017If you’re moving your Denver household and you’ve got to get something really large or truly priceless from point A to point B, your imagination may be overwhelmed by all the things that could go awry. Calamity isn’t a forgone conclusion, though. There are ways around it, and we’ll look at them directly. First, let’s review a handful of assumptions you might be indulging that can – and often do! – lead to tragedy. Assuming you’ll be just fine “going it alone” … As the old maxim tells us, 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 massive or special possession 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. Believe us – it’s our job to know. Oh, sure, bubble wrap can provide an excellent protective barrier for many items. But if you’re thinking of shipping artwork, antiques, electronics, or anything of real value, you’ll have to have something more. And it’s available: all manner of strong specialty crates, boxes, and packing materials, many of which can be custom-fit to objects of just about any size and shape. Assuming all moving trucks are the same … Take it from us, all moving trucks are not created equal. Specialty items like yours must have specialty trucks. And A-1 Freeman provides them. These specialty trucks of ours have design [[features|elements]|attributes]63] that severely curtail the movement of your goods during transport. That, plus your goods being packed in specialty materials, is your assurance that they’ll be delivered to your new home in perfect condition. Assuming your valued item is so “out there”, no one could a clue about how to move it … You’d be surprised by what our people at A-1 Freeman can move! Specialty shipments are our … uh … well … specialty. So, before you resign yourself to leaving your special thing behind, considering it too special for transport, give us a visit. We’re often relied upon to move such valuables as oversized paintings in bulky frames, statuary, delicate collectibles and bric-a-brac, costly antiques, and intricate electronics – even huge things like boats! Still wary of how we might ship your precious item? Consult with us and we’ll give you the full skinny on how we’d take care of it. We think you’ll be pleased! Now that we’ve got those pessimistic assumptions out of the way, let’s look more at the positive side of the picture. 5 Reasons People Move With Denver’s A-1 Freeman Moving Group Nowadays you have many options for long-distance moving – everything from making use of budget U-Hauls for a DIY move, to employing a pod provider where you pack and they drive, to purchasing the comprehensive services of a well-respected van line.
