Your Mover Wears A Lot of Hats--These Are the Big Ones

Moving to a new homeBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Anyone who's ever moved understands how much of an sentimental time it is--saying goodbye to your home, your close friends, job, community--is justifiably difficult. What many of us don't understand, at least not immediately, is the part that your moving company in Dallas plays in assisting you through the moving transition.

Professional movers are the best multi-taskers of the universe. Below are only a couple of the hats they will don, and off the books services they supply.


The moving staff chief may not have a master’s degree in psychology (do not dismiss it), but he's dedicated a lot of time around people in transition, and he's heard everything. As a result, it's very imperative that you choose a moving company in Dallas which you feel at ease with. When you crumble going through the (now teen's) first nursery for the last time, this is the shoulder you sob--or at least sniff a lot--on. When you are trying to figure out if you should hold on to a really hideous chair that you had when you had been first married and you weren't able to find the money for something more appealing, that's the individual you rely on for suggestions. When you find yourself wondering if it is ok to toss out the items your mother-in-law gives you for Christmas and you do not like, he will be your Dear Abby. Pick smartly--a fantastic moving crew is definitely worth its weight in gold…and therapy.


One of the grand mysteries of life is how a couch that slid within your family room just like the renowned greased pig has increased to a size that will make you believe you're really going to need to leave it for the new owners. Enter your moving company. They understand the right way to arrange the crew in the right angles so your large cozy couch turns the corner like it truly is on wheels. They are also great with calculating how many boxes you'll need (take your approximation and double it) and figuring out the size truck it's going to take to transport it all.

One of the first questions you will get is, "How many bedrooms?". This provides them an approximate understanding of the pieces of furniture you have-- a four-bedroom residence is much more likely to possess multiple living areas than a two-bedroom apartment. For those who have any substantial items, submit a photo with measurements. The more info you can give them up front, the more precise the estimates will be.

The Chippendale's Apprentice

Thomas Chippendale--get your head out from the gutter. Chippendale used to be a master furniture maker in the 1700s, and his iconic design remains to be the final word in stylish rooms. In any case, most of your household furniture was assembled from several parts, and the simplest way to move it is to take it apart. In case your furniture is more Ikea than sophisticated, you still need a professional to take that stuff apart--it is more complicated as opposed to typical pieces which have familiar bolts and screws.

Get some baggies at hand for the screws, bolts, and whatnot that you need to put things back together again.


After every one of the tables and beds are disassembled, the dresser drawers are bare, and the pans are packed, it's all got to end up in the truck. Right now is the moment your moving company in Dallas truly shines--they are space arranging geniuses. Knowledgeable crews perform much like a well-oiled machine. They understand what to put on the moving van first, the best way to arrange everything to be sure the weight is consistently dispersed, and things are in the suitable position once the process is over and the moving van pulls into your new driveway.
