How to Avoid Epic Failures When Long-Distance Moving Massive or Priceless Possessions to or from Wichita Falls04/14/2017If you’re moving your Wichita Falls household and you’ve got to get something really large or especially valuable from here to there, your imagination may be revving into overdrive with all the things that could go wrong. Disaster isn’t set in stone, though. There are ways around it, and we’ll offer them shortly. First, let’s examine a handful of assumptions you may be indulging that can – and often do! – lead to disaster. Assuming you’ll be just fine “going it alone” … As the old axiom 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 priceless possession 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 supernatural substance that protects all things from damage. Believe us – it’s our job to know. Oh, sure, bubble wrap can serve as an excellent protective barrier for a lot of items. But if you’re considering transporting artwork, antiques, electronics, or anything of great value, yourequire a little extra. And it’s out there: all sorts of sturdy specialty crates, boxes, and packing materials, many of which can be custom-fit to objects of almost any size and shape. Assuming all moving trucks are the same … Take it from us, all moving trucks are not created equal. Specialty items like yours need specialty trucks. And A-1 Freeman’s got ’em. These specialty trucks of ours have design [[features|elements]|attributes]63] that severely restrict the movement of your belongings during transport. That, plus your belongings being packed in specialty materials, assures you that they’ll be delivered to your new home in the same condition they were in when packed. Assuming your valued item is so one-of-a-kind, no one could possibly figure out how to ship it … You’d be surprised by what our people at A-1 Freeman can move!
