How to Stave Off Epic Failures When Long-Distance Moving Big or Special Things to or from Atlanta

If you’re moving your Atlanta household and you’ve got to get something really big or truly priceless from point A to point B, your imagination may be working overtime on all the things that could go awry. Tragedy isn’t set in stone, though. There are ways around it, and we’ll get to them in a second. First, let’s examine a handful of assumptions you may be making that can – and often do! – result in catastrophe.

man frustrated by moving aloneAssuming you’re better off “going it alone” …
As the proverb says, 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 big or priceless possession of yours to reach its destination in fine fettle, get help: our help.

Assuming you can bubble-wrap anything …
Bubble wrap isn’t some magical material that protects all things from damage. Believe us – it’s our job to know. Oh, sure, bubble wrap can provide a superb protective barrier for all kinds of items. But if you’re contemplating moving artwork, antiques, electronics, or anything of major value, you need something extra. And you can get it: all types of rugged specialty crates, boxes, and packing materials, many of which can be custom-fit to objects of nearly any size and configuration.

Assuming all moving trucks are identical …
We can tell you from experience that all moving trucks are not created equal. Specialty items like yours must have 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 we’ll deliver them to your new home in the same condition they were in when packed.

Assuming your valued possession is so bizarre, no one could possibly know how to move it …
You’d be astounded by what our crews at A-1 Freeman can move! Specialty shipments are our … uh … well … specialty. So, before you resign yourself to leaving your special thing behind, figuring it’s too special for transport, give us a call. We’re often trusted to move such treasures as oversized paintings in hefty frames, statuary, delicate collectibles and bric-a-brac, expensive antiques, and intricate electronics – even massive things like boats! Still uncertain of how we might move your precious item? Consult with us and we’ll show you clearly how we’d get it done. We expect you’ll be relieved!

Now that we’ve dispensed with those negative, let’s spend a bit more time examining the positive side of the picture.

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.
