Leave These Things to the Pros When Moving to Denver

Professional MoversBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

As though you're not anxious enough by the upcoming move, you have got to think about the logistics of moving prep--do you do it yourself, or use a professional mover in Denver to get it done for you? If you are using a full-service moving company, you have the alternative of a full-service move--all you need to do is get out of the path and let the professional movers in Denver do their thing. Should you be more the DIY type and intending on booking a moving truck and depending on buddies, you may need to reexamine that strategy.

Aside from saving your back, as well as your friendships, there's some other reasons to use a moving company to pack and transport your household goods. For starters, these people are pros and understand how to pad and pack your possessions. Also, they are insured--if you drop Great-Grandma Gertrude's crystal in the driveway, it will be on you. If the professional mover in Denver doesn't get it exactly correct and things break, no problem--it will be covered.

What's Actually More Challenging to move? Fitness Equipment or Antique China?

Might appear to be a foolish question, correct? Wrong.

Should you pack a box of china and wrap all of it properly, chances are decent that it's going to get through some bumps and maybe even a small drop. If you try to move a big piece of fitness equipment--say you got a Peloton for Christmas--and you lose your grip and it slips to the ground, the bike, and possibly your walls and floor, is likely to fare worse as opposed to the little carton. You can buy replacement bowls on eBay, however fixing the Peloton won't be inexpensive, not to mention the expense of fixing the dings in the walls and scratches on the floor.

There is a considerable amount put in your gym equipment, hence working with a moving company to take items apart and transport them accurately is really worth what you will pay for professional help.

Art and Antique items

For those who have any fine art or antiques, it's worth it to get them professionally packed and moved. These items are normally insured on a rider that may be apart from your standard homeowner's policy--check out the small print about moving. There might be a condition that you need to use pros for insurance to be effective.

One other reason to employ a moving company in Denver to take care of your fine pieces is that they possess the resources and know-how to build specialized crates and containers for oddly shaped things like larger mirrors, sculptures, works of art, and the like.

It Ain't Heavy, It is Simply a Sleeper Sofa

Ok, you are thinking, I've got a vehicle with a lift gate, a few hand trucks, plus a number of quilts as well as tape, and my buds are strong guys. We'll do this, no problem. Of course, you can. However will it be really a wise decision?

Moving that couch around the room is one thing. Move it out of the home, across the driveway and in the moving van can be a completely different endeavor, and unless it's a straight flat line from point A to point B, it will take up a lot of the clock. Multiply that couch by chairs, dining tables, bed mattresses, other couches, and a mower, and that is not worth a frosty beer and a pizza.

Moving to The Music

Then there exists the terrifying piano--are you at ease moving that? In fact an upright piano has a weight of around 300 pounds, and a baby grand is easily above 1000 pounds. There is near to 18 tons of tension on the strings--and one may snap before you know it if you don't know what you are doing. Not to mention the scuff marks on a wood floor--you have got to raise it up onto casters or perhaps a piano dolly, so you do not make gouges in the wood.

String instruments will also be fragile and should be moved in their cases. Without the case, an expert will be able to create a crate for the musical instrument, cover it carefully in bubble wrap, and then, they understand exactly where to put it within the truck.

Knowing how to pack the truck is an art form, it's also important to leave all your hefty, fragile, and special items to the professional movers in Denver. Although, go ahead and pack your own socks.
