How to Forgo Epic Failures When Long-Distance Moving Large or Special Possessions to or from Little Rock

If you’re moving your Little Rock 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 fail. Tragedy isn’t unavoidable, though. There are ways around it, and we’ll look at them in a second. First, let’s review a few assumptions you might be indulging that can – and often do! – lead to tragedy.

man frustrated by moving aloneAssuming you’ll be okay “going it alone” …
As the proverb has it, 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 large or special item 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 safeguards all things from damage. Trust us – it’s our job to know. Oh, sure, bubble wrap can be an excellent protective barrier for a lot of items. But if you’re thinking of transporting artwork, antiques, electronics, or anything of exceptional value, yourequire a bit more. And it’s out there: all kinds of tough specialty crates, boxes, and packing materials, many of which can be custom-fit to objects of just about any size and configuration.

Assuming all moving trucks are identical …
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 curtail the movement of your possessions during transport. That, plus your possessions being packed in specialty materials, is your assurance that we’ll deliver them to your new home in perfect condition.

Assuming your treasured possession is so unique, no one could have any idea how to transport it …
You’d be amazed by what our team at A-1 Freeman can move! Specialty shipments are our … uh … well … specialty. So, before you abandon your special thing, figuring it’s too special for hauling, give us a ring. We’re often trusted to move such prized possessions as big paintings in weighty frames, statuary, fragile collectibles and bric-a-brac, costly antiques, and complicated electronics – even relatively gigantic things like boats! Still uncertain of how we might transport your valuable item? Consult with us and we’ll walk you through how we’d get it done. We think you’ll be pleased!

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

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.
