All Moving Labor in Wichita Falls is Not Created Equal

Moving LaborWhen faced with the job of moving, you may find yourself thinking, "I'd prefer to not lift that," and "I do not 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 does not make a difference who does it, so long as you do not have to do it, correct?  Wait just a minute.

Just because someone can carry boxes and is willing to carry boxes doesn't mean you should let them lug your boxes. Remember: you're allowing these people in your abode. They are putting their hands on all of your stuff.  Read that last sentence again.

Here are a few points to consider when choosing moving labor in Wichita Falls to ensure security for you and your belongings.

Professionally Certified

This is a key requirement. Professionally certified movers in Wichita Falls have gone through thorough background screening, so you know they are who they say they are, and they are credible. Don’t hire a moving company in Wichita Falls without this certification. It is essential for your own peace of mind.

Years of Experience

If you obtain a neighbor's offer to help you move or hire the bargain moving labor you can turn up on Craigslist, you are opening yourself up to dangers. Even if everyone is absolutely credible, they don't automatically have the needed experience when it comes to moving awkward furniture, boxes and more. What would happen if one of them scratches the wall with the couch? What would happen if they smash your grandmother's dishes?

And do they know how to load it all in the truck to maximize the space and prevent shifting that could lead to breakage?

Experience is very important if you are also needing packing and unpacking services. There's a right way (and an incorrect way) to pack glass, crystal, rugs, TV’s, appliances and everything else. Things that are too bulky to be boxed should be carefully padded. Making amateur mistakes (or simply being lazy) in this area could cause damage to or complete destruction of your precious belongings.

A-1 Freeman Moving Group has been doing this for more than 40 years. We can pack and move even the most delicate, bulky, or priceless items securely and efficiently from origin to destination.

Properly Uniformed

Picture this: It's moving day. There is one person in athletic wear boxing books in the family room. There's one person in jeans packing dishes in the kitchen. And there's someone in cargo pants carrying your TV out of the bedroom. All normal, correct?

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

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

Uniforms may seem like a little detail, but they're a vital one.

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

Your movers are doing a job, but it's a very personal one. You're trusting them with all of your earthly possessions, all of the things 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.
