All Moving Labor in Atlanta is Not Created Equal

Moving LaborWhen faced with the job of moving, you might find yourself thinking, "I would rather not lift that," and "I do not want to take dozens of trips up and down the stairs."

With that attitude, you might be ready to let anyone tote those boxes for you. It doesn't make a difference who does it, so long as you do not have to do it, correct?  Not so fast.

Just because someone can lug boxes and is willing to move boxes doesn't mean you want to let them lug your boxes. Remember: you are allowing these people in your abode. They are putting their hands on everything you own.  It can't be just anyone.

Here are several things to consider when selecting moving labor in Atlanta to ensure safety for you and your things.

Professionally Certified

This is very important. Professionally certified movers in Atlanta have gone through comprehensive background screening, so you can be assured they are who they say they are, and they are trustworthy. Never hire a moving company in Atlanta who doesn’t carry this certification. It is crucial for your own peace of mind.

Years of Experience

If you accept a friend's offer to help you move or employ the bargain moving labor you can turn up on Craigslist, you're opening yourself up to dangers. Even if everyone is perfectly credible, they do not naturally have the required experience when it comes to moving bulky furniture, boxes and more. What would happen if one of them scratches the wall with the couch? What happens if they break your grandmother's dishes?

And do they understand how to put it all in the truck to maximize the space and prevent shifting that could cause breakage?

Experience is especially vital if you're also needing packing and unpacking services. There is a right way (and a wrong way) to pack glass, crystal, rugs, bulky furniture, appliances and everything else. Pieces that are too big to be boxed should be scrupulously padded. Making silly mistakes (or just being lazy) in this area could cause damage to or complete destruction of your precious things.

Properly Uniformed

Imagine this: It's moving day. There is someone in athletic wear boxing books in the living room. There is someone in jeans packing glassware in the kitchen. And there is someone else in cargo pants carrying your television out of the bedroom. All good, correct?

Except one of them isn't even part of the crew. It is just a guy who saw an open door and some preoccupied owners, and he decided to help himself to your TV.

This is why it's essential to hire a moving company with properly uniformed movers. You’ll know specifically who is part of the process and who is not--and it makes it far less likely that someone who's not would dare make an attempt to "help" you move.

Uniforms may seem like a little touch, but they are a crucial one.

Plus, it is just more professional. A uniform is another indication that your movers are serious about what they do—it is not just a hobby.

Your movers are doing a job, but it is a very personal one. You are entrusting them with all of your earthly possessions, everything that makes your house feel like home. Do not hand 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.
