Experienced Movers And Packers Make Your Move A Pleasant One

One of the reasons you hire a professional moving service is because you want trained, professional, experienced people taking care of your household contents and your valuable items. You expect this level of professionalism with the service.

Unfortunately, not all moving companies hire professionals. In fact, and this is common even with some of the biggest international movers, the crew that packs, loads, unloads and unpacks your home may be temporary workers hired from a pool of workers at a local employment agency.

Even worse, some may be people hired off of online websites or even friends of friends of someone that works for the company. This is not the case with reputable moving companies, but it does happen a lot in the industry.

Ask About the Movers

Many people don’t even ask about the movers when they are trying to find a moving company. They tend to focus on the price and the dates the movers are available rather than on the quality of people that will be handling their worldly possessions.

To avoid this issue, take the time and ask the moving company if the movers are employees or hired as needed. In addition, ask specifically about the training provided to the moving staff and the packing team.

Quality moving companies will provide training for all their staff. This will include correct moving and packing techniques, loss and damage reduction and how to provide quality customer service to all of the clients they move.

Keeping Your Things Safe

By hiring professional packers and movers with experience or that are supervised by an experienced professional if they are new to the job, you have the reassurance that your items will be safe during the moving process.

This is particularly important for long distance moving. Incorrectly packed boxes and incorrect loading of the truck by the movers can result in loads shifting, items rubbing against each other over hundreds and thousands of miles of driving and lot of damage when you unpack. This is most commonly the case when people try to pack their own items since they don’t have the training, experience or practice to effectively secure the items.

Professional packers and movers are worth the cost. You will be surprised at just how reasonable the price actually is, particularly when you consider the risk to your possessions if things aren’t packed and moved correctly.
