All Moving Labor in El Paso is Not Created Equal

Moving LaborWhen faced with the responsibility of moving, you might think to yourself, "I'd rather not lift that," and "I don't want to take dozens of trips up and down the stairs."

With that mindset, you might be ready to let anyone lug those boxes for you. It doesn't matter who does it, so long as you do not have to do it, correct?  Not so fast.

Just because someone can carry boxes and is willing to move boxes does not mean you want to let them carry your boxes. Remember: you're allowing these people in your abode. They are putting their hands on all of your possessions.  Read that last sentence again.

Here are some things to ponder when choosing moving labor in El Paso to ensure security for you and your possessions.

Professionally Certified

This is very important. Professionally certified movers in El Paso have submitted to thorough background screening, so you know they are who they say they are, and they can be trusted. Never hire a moving company in El Paso without this certification. It's essential for your own peace of mind.

Years of Experience

If you take a friend's offer to assist you move or employ the least expensive moving labor you can find on Craigslist, you are opening yourself up to some risks. Even if everyone is absolutely credible, they do not necessarily have the needed training when it comes to moving bulky furniture, boxes and more. What happens if one of them scratches the wall with the recliner? What will happen if they smash your good china?

And do they know how to load it all in the truck to make the best use of the space and prevent shifting that could cause damage?

Experience is particularly crucial if you are also needing packing and unpacking services. There is a correct way (and an incorrect way) to pack dishware, crystal, rugs, bulky furniture, appliances and more. Things that are too big to be boxed should be meticulously padded. Making silly blunders (or simply being lazy) in this arena could cause damage to or complete destruction of your precious items.

A-1 Freeman Moving Group has been doing this for more than forty years. We can pack and move even the most fragile, oddly shaped, or priceless things securely and efficiently from here to there.

Properly Uniformed

Imagine this: It is moving day. There is one person in athletic wear boxing pictures in the family room. There is someone else in jeans packing glassware in the kitchen. And there is someone else in cargo pants carrying your television out of the bedroom. All normal, correct?

Except one of them is not even a mover. It's just someone who saw an open door and some preoccupied owners, and he decided to help himself to a new TV.

Therefore, it is important to hire a moving company with properly uniformed movers. You’ll know specifically who is part of the moving crew and who is not--and it makes it far less likely that someone who is not would dare make an attempt to "help" you move.

Uniforms may seem like a small detail, but they are an important one.

Further, it's just more professional. A uniform is further proof that your movers are serious about what they do—it's not just a hobby.

Your movers are doing their job, but it is a very personal one. You are entrusting them with all of your belongings, everything that makes your house feel like home. Don't turn that over to just anybody.

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.
