When planning your move, it’s always good to know what services are available. Full-service moving companies are the most popular type of moving company because they handle a variety of tasks designed to alleviate stress for the person moving. These full-service tasks include:
- Packing (partial or full)
When you choose for the moving company to packing, you don’t have to lift a finger! The movers bring everything, from boxes to markers and everything in between. They label all your boxes accordingly to make for a safe and efficient move.
- Assembling and Disassembling Furniture
One of the hardest but necessary tasks in a move, that requires unique knowledge and skillset, is taking apart furniture that must be moved. With full service moving companies, you don’t have to worry about a thing – they take care of it. They bring all the necessary tools for a wide array of furniture. The best part is that once your furniture gets to the new destination, they even put it back together for you!
When you have a big move, or you’re really busy, who has time to unpack things? Full-service movers unpack all your belongings, putting them right where you want. All you have to do is provide a diagram or point.
- Setting up a Storage Unit
When you’re moving to a new location and aren’t familiar with the area, finding a secure storage unit that has what you need can be challenging. Moving companies have relationships with storage facilities, and they can help get your belongings into a space that will give you peace of mind.
- Auto Transport
Sometimes you have more than one vehicle that needs to be moved, or you want to fly and meet the movers when they get there. Auto transport is one of those services that come in handy. They secure the vehicle, put it on the transport truck, and take it to the next location. Depending on the size of the car, some moving companies can put the car in the truck with the rest of your belongings.
Full-service movers aren’t just for a long-distance relocation. These services are available for local and corporate moves too.
The beauty of full-service movers is that they allow you to mix and match according to your needs. For instance, you can pack certain things and leave the big things to the movers. This helps reduce your costs, focusing on the other elements of the move.
Pricing for Full-Service Moves
There is a pricing difference between a standard move and a full-service move depending on the types of services you select. It is very important to speak to an associate and get an estimate of how much these services will be. Full-service moves require someone coming to look at the work needed to provide a fair and accurate price.
