How to Avoid Epic Failures When Long-Distance Moving Bulky or Priceless Possessions to or from Oklahoma City

If you’re moving your Oklahoma City household and you’ve got to get something really large or special from here to there, your imagination may be overwhelmed by all the things that could go awry. Tragedy isn’t certain, though. There are ways around it, and we’ll get to them directly. First, let’s review a few assumptions you may be making that can – and often do! – bring about disaster.

man frustrated by moving aloneAssuming you’re better off “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 big or priceless 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 material that safeguards all things from damage. Believe us – it’s our job to know. Oh, sure, bubble wrap can provide a great protective barrier for many items. But if you’re considering shipping artwork, antiques, electronics, or anything of real value, you need a bit extra. And it’s available: all types of rugged specialty crates, boxes, and packing materials, many of which can be custom-fit to objects of nearly any size and configuration.

Assuming all moving trucks are identical …
You have it on good authority that all moving trucks are not created equal. Specialty items like yours must have specialty trucks. And A-1 Freeman provides them. These specialty trucks of ours have design [[features|elements]|attributes]63] that significantly curtail the movement of your belongings during transport. That, plus your belongings being packed in specialty materials, should convince you that they’ll arrive at your new home in the same condition they were in when packed.

Assuming your valued possession is so bizarre, no one could have any idea how to ship 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 the pawn shop, figuring it’s too special for shipping, contact us. We’re often relied upon to move such treasures as large paintings in bulky frames, statuary, finely wrought collectibles and bric-a-brac, costly antiques, and complicated electronics – even relatively gigantic things like boats! Still wary of how we might transport your treasured item? Talk with us and we’ll show you clearly how we’d get it done. We think you’ll be pleased!

Now that we’ve dispensed with those pessimistic, let’s spend more time examining the positive side of the picture.

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.
