How to Stave Off Epic Failures When Long-Distance Moving Large or Valuable Items to or from El Paso04/14/2017If you’re moving your El Paso household and you’ve got to get something really big or really precious from point A to point B, your imagination may be overwhelmed by all the things that could fail. Calamity isn’t certain, though. There are ways around it, and we’ll present them in a minute. First, let’s review a few assumptions you might be indulging that can – and often do! – bring about disaster. Assuming you’ll be just fine “going it alone” … As the proverb relates, 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 item of yours to reach its destination no worse for the journey, get help: our help. Assuming you can bubble-wrap anything … Bubble wrap isn’t some paranormal substance that safeguards all things from damage. Believe us – it’s our job to know. Oh, sure, bubble wrap can provide a great protective barrier for lots of items. But if you’re contemplating shipping artwork, antiques, electronics, or anything of great value, you need something extra. And you can find it: all manner of sturdy specialty crates, boxes, and packing materials, many of which can be custom-fit to objects of nearly any size and shape. Assuming all moving trucks are the same … We can tell you from experience that all moving trucks are not created equal. Specialty items like yours need specialty trucks. And A-1 Freeman has them. These specialty trucks of ours have design [[features|elements]|attributes]63] that significantly curtail the movement of your belongings during transport.
