How to Avoid Epic Failures When Long-Distance Moving Bulky or Priceless Items to or from Dallas

If you’re moving your Dallas household and you’ve got to get something really big or truly priceless from one point to another, your imagination may be revving into overdrive with all the things that could go wrong. Tragedy isn’t inescapable, though. There are ways around it, and we’ll offer them in a minute. First, let’s examine a handful of assumptions you may be making that can – and often do! – lead to catastrophe.

man frustrated by moving aloneAssuming you’ll be okay “going it alone” …
As the old maxim has it, 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 in fine fettle, get help: our help.

Assuming you can bubble-wrap anything …
Bubble wrap isn’t some magical substance that keeps all things from damage. Trust us – it’s our job to know. Oh, sure, bubble wrap can be a great protective barrier for all sorts of items. But if you’re considering transporting artwork, antiques, electronics, or anything of significant value, you need a bit extra. And it’s available: all manner of tough specialty crates, boxes, and packing materials, many of which can be custom-fit to objects of almost any size and shape.

Assuming all moving trucks are the same …
You have it on good authority that all moving trucks are not created equal. Specialty items like yours must have specialty trucks. And A-1 Freeman’s got ’em. These specialty trucks of ours have design [[features|elements]|attributes]63] that significantly limit the movement of your belongings during transport. That, plus your belongings being packed in specialty materials, should give you every confidence that we’ll deliver them to your new home in pristine condition.

Assuming your priceless possession is so bizarre, no one could have any idea how to ship 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, thinking it’s too special for transport, give us a visit. We’re often engaged to move such valuables as large paintings in weighty frames, statuary, fragile collectibles and bric-a-brac, priceless antiques, and intricate electronics – even relatively gigantic things like boats! Still uncertain of how we might transport your precious item? Consult with us and we’ll walk you through how we’d tackle it. We expect you’ll be happy!

Now that we’ve addressed those defeatist, 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.
