Your Mover Wears A Lot of Hats--These Are the Big Ones

Moving to a new homeBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Anybody who's ever moved acknowledges how much of an emotionally charged time it is--saying farewell to your residence, your good friends, job, community--is justifiably stressful. What many people don't understand, at least not instantly, is the role that your moving company in Little Rock has in helping you through the moving transition.

Professional movers tend to be the best multi-taskers on the planet. Below are only a portion of the hats they will put on, and off the books services they provide.


The moving staff chief might not have a master’s degree in psychology (don't discount it), but he has devoted considerable time around people in transition, and he has listened to it all. As a result, it's so imperative that you choose a moving company in Little Rock that you feel comfortable with. If you fall apart going from your (now teen's) first nursery for the very last time, this is the shoulder you wail--or at the least sniff a lot--on. When you find yourself attempting to decide if you should hold on to a genuinely ugly easy chair which you got when you were first on your own and you could not manage anything more attractive, that's the someone you turn to for suggestions. When you are questioning if it is okay to pitch out the things your mother-in-law gives you for Christmas and you aren't keen on, he is your Dear Abby. Pick wisely--a fantastic moving crew is worth its weight in gold…and therapy.

Math Wizzard

One of the big secrets of life is how a sofa which slid inside your family room just like the proverbial greased pig has exploded to proportions which will make you think you're just going to need to let it stay for the new owners. Enter the mover. They recognize the right way to set up the crew in the perfect angles so that your huge comfy couch turns the corner like it's on wheels. They are also good with computing the number of boxes you'll have (take your calculation and double it) as well as determining the size moving van it will require to carry it all.

One of the first questions you're going to get is, "The number of bedrooms?". This provides them a rough understanding of the furniture you have-- a four-bedroom home is much more likely to include numerous living spaces compared to a two-bedroom flat. If you have any substantial items, email an image with measurements. The more information you can offer them up front, the more precise the quotes are going to be.

The Chippendale's Apprentice

Thomas Chippendale--get your mind out of the gutter. Chippendale was a master furniture designer in the 1700s, and his famous style is still the last word in innovative interiors. Anyhow, much of your home furniture has been assembled from several sections, and the best method to move it is to take it apart. When your furnishings are more Ikea as compared to sophisticated, you'll still need to have a professional to take that stuff apart--it's more complicated than standard items which have recognizable bolts and screws.

Have some baggies handy for the screws, bolts, and whatnot that you will require to put things back together again.


Once every one of the tables and bed frames have been taken apart, the dresser drawers are emptied, and the pots and pans are packed, it's all got to go in the truck. Now is when your moving company in Little Rock really shines--they are space planning prodigies. Seasoned crews perform like a well-oiled machine. They understand what things to pack in the moving truck initially, the right way to organize all of it to ensure that the weight is evenly distributed, and things are in their proper spot when the journey is finished and the moving van pulls in your new driveway.
