Working With Movers When You Need To Relocate A Single Item
So, why would you consider hiring assistance when moving a single item when you can save some money and try handling it on your own?
Well, there are many cases when hiring professional movers to move a single item is a must not only an option. For instance, it is not smart to handle on your own relocation of highly valuable items. No matter if their value is either monetarily or sentimentally, you don’t want to risk damaging them during transportation. These items can be very delicate as well, such as pianos, arts, or vintage clocks, and requires gentle handling which only professionals can provide.
Also, think about the size and weight of the item that needs to be moved. If your item is extremely heavy and large, you don’t want to risk your or your friend’s safety, as well as the safety of your property since coordinating large items through the house, can be very tricky. If you are relocating a specialty item like a pool table, you will need to use special moving equipment, which you will need to rent and earn how to use.
Why would you do that when you can hire professional movers who have the rich experience, skills, and equipment for an efficient move? They can ensure the best possible protection for your item, prevent damage to your property, and guarantee that your item will be insured when it is moved by a professional moving company.
Moving a single item 101
Hiring movers to move a single item is the best option for you no matter how far you move. When you hire movers to move a single item for you, the chances are high that you will be sharing the space in the moving truck with other people’s items. This is good news since this way you will also share the transportation costs with them, and you won’t have to worry about minimum weight requirements or any other hidden fees.
How the moving company will calculate my final cost? The bill for your mini-move will be determined by the relocation distance, the weight of your item, and if there are some extra services included. The service you might require are crating, furniture disassembly and assembly on the spot, hoisting services, and many more. Each of these services will cost you some additional money.
What you need to keep in mind when hiring a moving company is that they can’t guarantee you the actual date immediately. Your move is linked to other moves so everything will depends on that. However, if you are in a hurry and you want your shipment delivered on a certain date we can arrange that. You can always choose to not split the truck with other people and pay the full price on your own and schedule the date.
When you share truck with others, it is important to clearly label the item with your name and all other relevant information. In case your item is very valuable, purchase additional moving insurance.
Will movers refuse my request?
When you need help with moving a large piece of furniture, or any other specialty item you will probably be charged by the hour. Also, some companies do have some minimum amount of hours you need to hire them for.
This still pays off greatly if you consider how much money you need to spend on renting a moving van and equipment when DIY-ing. However, some movers might refuse your request since they don’t have enough time or free manpower to help you out. In this case, move on and look for another moving company. Opt for those who can provide labor-only services!
