DIYing Your Move to El Paso? Leave These Things to the Pros

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

Like you are not stressed enough with your impending move, you've got to think about the logistics of moving prep--do you do it on your own, or engage a professional crew to get it done for you? In case you are working with a full-service moving company, you will find the option of a full-service move--all you have to do is get out of the road and let the professional movers in El Paso do their thing. If you are more the Do-it-yourself sort and intending on renting a truck and relying on pals, you may want to reconsider that strategy.

Aside from protecting your back, and your friendships, there are other reasons to employ a moving company to pack and transport your household items. For one thing, these people are pros and understand how to pad and pack your belongings. Also, they are insured--if you drop Great-Aunt Edith's crystal on the driveway, it is on you. If your professional mover in El Paso doesn't get it exactly perfect and things break, no problem--it is covered.

What's Truly More Difficult to move? Gym Equipment or Fine China?

Might appear to be a dumb question, correct? Wrong.

Should you pack a carton of china and wrap all the pieces adequately, chances are decent that it will endure a handful of bumps and maybe even a small drop. If you attempt to move a big piece of exercise equipment--say you received a Peloton for Christmas--and you lose your grasp and it slips to the ground, the bike is going to fare worse as opposed to the small carton. You can purchase replacement bowls on eBay, however replacing the Peloton isn't going to be cheap.

There is a considerable amount invested in your gym equipment, hence hiring a moving company to take elements apart and move them properly is truly worth what you will spend on professional help.

Art and Antiques

In case you have any fine art or antiques, it will be worth the cost to have them expertly packed and moved. These items are generally protected on a rider that's outside of your basic homeowner's policy--look at the small print concerning moving. There may well be a stipulation that you need to utilize experts for coverage to be effective.

One more reason to employ a moving company in El Paso to handle your fine pieces is that they have the resources and know-how to build specialized crates and containers for unusually shaped items like large mirrors, sculptures, works of art, and so on.

It Ain't Heavy, It is Simply a Sleeper Sofa

Ok, you are thinking, I have got a vehicle with a lift gate, several hand trucks, along with a number of quilts as well as tape, and my friends are strong folks. It is possible to do this, no issue. Undoubtedly, it is possible to. But is it really a great idea?

Moving that couch across the room is one thing. Move it out of the property, across the driveway and in the truck is often a totally different project, and unless it's a direct flat line from point A to point B, it's going to consume a lot of the clock. Multiply that sofa by bar stools, dining tables, mattresses, additional sofas, and a garden tractor, and that is not worth a cold beer and a pizza.

Moving to The Music

Then there exists the terrifying piano--are you at ease moving that? Even an upright has a weight of close to 300 pounds, and a baby grand is easily more than 1000 pounds. There's near to 18 tons of tension on the strings--and one might snap quickly when you do not know what you are doing. Not to mention the scrapes on a hardwood floor--you have got to raise it up onto casters or perhaps a piano dolly, so you don't make gouges in the wood.

Stringed instruments will also be sensitive and need to be moved in their cases. Without the case, a professional could very well create a crate for the musical instrument, cover it gently in bubble wrap, and then, they know precisely where to set it within the moving truck.

Knowing how to pack the moving van is an art form, it's also important to leave all your weighty, sensitive, and unique items to the professional movers in El Paso. Although, go ahead and pack your own socks.
