How to Stave Off Epic Failures When Long-Distance Moving Massive or Priceless Possessions to or from Little Rock04/14/2017If you’re moving your Little Rock household and you’ve got to get something really big or truly priceless from here to there, your imagination may be overwhelmed by all the things that could go wrong. Catastrophe isn’t inevitable, though. There are ways around it, and we’ll get to them directly. First, let’s look at a number of assumptions you might be indulging that can – and often do! – lead to disaster. Assuming you’ll be okay “going it alone” … As the old axiom says, 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 bulky or special thing of yours to reach its destination in fine fettle, get help: our help. Assuming you can bubble-wrap anything … Bubble wrap isn’t some paranormal substance that safeguards all things from damage. Trust us – it’s our job to know. Oh, sure, bubble wrap can provide an excellent protective barrier for all kinds of items. But if you’re considering transporting artwork, antiques, electronics, or anything of real value, yourequire a bit extra. And you can find it: all types of sturdy specialty crates, boxes, and packing materials, many of which can be custom-fit to objects of practically any size and shape. Assuming all moving trucks are the same … We can tell you from experience that all moving trucks are not created equal. Specialty items like yours require specialty trucks. And A-1 Freeman has them. These specialty trucks of ours have design [[features|elements]|attributes]63] that seriously curtail the movement of your belongings during transport. That, plus your belongings being packed in specialty materials, is your assurance that we’ll deliver them to your new home in perfect condition. Assuming your priceless possession is so “out there”, no one could a clue about how to move it … You’d be amazed by what our crews at A-1 Freeman can move! Specialty shipments are our … uh … well … specialty. So, before you consign your special thing to oblivion, thinking it’s too special for hauling, get hold of us. We’re often trusted to move such prized possessions as big paintings in hefty frames, statuary, finely wrought collectibles and bric-a-brac, costly antiques, and intricate electronics – even massive things like boats! Still uncertain of how we might transport your precious item? Talk with us and we’ll show you clearly how we’d tackle it. We think you’ll be pleased! Now that we’ve addressed those pessimistic, let’s look more at the positive side of the picture. 5 Reasons People Move With Little Rock’s Oil Capitol Relocation Nowadays you have a lot of options for long-distance moving – everything from renting budget U-Hauls for a DIY move, to hiring a pod provider where you pack and they drive, to obtaining the broad services of a leading van line.
