All Moving Labor in Oklahoma City is Not Created Equal

Moving LaborWhen confronting the job of moving, you could think to yourself, "I'd rather not move that," and "I do not want to take dozens of trips up and down the stairs."

With that mentality, you might be ready to let anyone carry those boxes for you. It doesn't make a difference who does it, as long as you don't have to do it, correct?  Wait just a minute.

Just because someone can move boxes and is willing to lug boxes does not mean you should let them lug your boxes. Remember this: you are allowing these people in your house. They’re touching all of your possessions.  Read that last sentence again.

Here are several items to ponder when choosing moving labor in Oklahoma City to ensure safety for you and your belongings.

Professionally Certified

This is very important. Professionally certified movers in Oklahoma City have submitted to extensive background screening, so you know they are who they say they are, and they are credible. Don’t hire a moving company in Oklahoma City who doesn’t carry this certification. It's crucial for your own peace of mind.

Years of Experience

If you accept a buddy's offer to help you move or employ the bargain moving labor you can find on Craigslist, you're opening yourself up to liabilities. Even if everyone is perfectly honest, they don't necessarily have the required know-how when it comes to moving bulky furniture, boxes and more. What happens if one of them scratches the wall with the couch? What will happen if they drop your good china?

And do they understand how to put it all in the truck to maximize the space and prevent shifting that could cause breakage?

Experience is very important if you are also needing packing and unpacking services. There's a right way (and an incorrect way) to pack glass, crystal, rugs, TV’s, appliances and more. Things that are too large to be boxed should be carefully padded. Making amateur blunders (or simply being lazy) in this arena could cause damage to or complete destruction of your favorite items.

We have been doing this for more than 40 years. We can pack and move even the most delicate, oddly shaped, or priceless things safely and efficiently from origin to destination.

Properly Uniformed

Think about this: It's moving day. There's someone in athletic wear boxing pictures in the family room. There is someone else in jeans packing glassware in the kitchen. And there is someone else in cargo pants carrying your television out of the bedroom. All okay, correct?

Except one of them isn't even a mover. It's just someone who noticed an open door and some inattentive owners, and he decided to help himself to a new TV.

This is why it is imperative to hire a moving company with properly uniformed movers. You will know exactly who is part of the moving crew and who isn’t--and it makes it far less likely that someone who's not would dare make an attempt to "help" you move.

Uniforms may seem like a minute touch, but they are a vital one.

Plus, it is just more professional. A uniform is another clue that your movers are serious about what they do—it's not just a hobby.

Your movers are doing a job, but it is a very personal one. You're entrusting them with all of your earthly possessions, everything that makes your house feel like home. Don't turn that over to just anybody.

Best. Move. Ever!
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.
