If you are going to be moving, you may need one or two services from a moving company, or you may want to take advantage of their full-service move. It's only by having a good understanding of the many different types of services they have to offer you that you will really know all of the different ways they will be able to be of service to you when it comes to your move. Sometimes, you may be in a position of needing help with something very specific that a moving company would be able to help you with. Here are some of the services you will want to make sure that you are aware of:
Preparing, packing, unpacking, and setting up belongings
The movers will be able to prepare your things for the move which can include disassembling any items that need to be broken down before they are moved. This includes disassembling things ranging from electronic systems to your pieces of furniture. They will also be able to pack your entire home for you.
When everything makes it to your new location, the moving company can also unload everything and put the belongings where you want them in the house. They will also put the items they had to take apart back together and they can hook up your appliances, electronics, and other items that require setup. If you want to pack your own home, but you would like to have professionals tend to the packing of your fragile items, then you can even have the movers just pack your fragile items for the move.
Moving bulky and hard to move items
You may need help moving an item that is bulky, very heavy, or otherwise hard to move. You can hire a moving company to come out and move this item for you. Some examples of this type of item include something like a piano, a pool table, a hot tub, or a safe. Having movers move the item can help you get it to where it's going without you risking damage to the item, risking damage to the house, and risking injury to yourself and anyone else you would otherwise have helping you.
Storing of your items
If you need to keep your things somewhere for a while because you won't be able to move them right into your new place, then the moving company may also have a forage facility they can hold your belongings in until you are ready for them. When you are ready for them, they can bring them to you and help move you in.
