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 second. 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 plan on shipping artwork, antiques, electronics, or anything of major value, you need something extra. And it’s out there: 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. That, plus your belongings being packed in specialty materials, should give you every confidence that they’ll be delivered to your new home in mint condition.
