Whether it’s moving house or changing business locations, the thought of a move brings visions of endless planning, packing and unloading to mind. ]It’s famously known that moving is one of the most stressful things you’ll do in life and few if any of us looks forward to a move – home or office.
But there might be the occasion where you’ll have to move just one thing. So how difficult can that be. If you’ve handled a full move before, surely moving one thing can’t be a problem.
Wrong. One-piece moves are usually more complex and demanding than most people realize. When we talk about a ‘one-piece move’ we mean moving things that are too large, too heavy, too cumbersome – or all or any combination of the three – to be easily moved by yourself – or even you and every friend you can muster.
The realization that you’re ‘in too deep’ in a one-piece move often comes too late. At home, you might have found the perfect piano for your children to learn to play, or you finally found someone to take the pool table off your hands – if you’ll deliver it to them. For businesses, finding a used model of an expensive piece of machinery can save you a lot of money, but cause you a lot of headaches when you realize you have to move it.
Call A Moving Company
It seems so simple when you think about it, but many people don’t consider moving companies unless they’re moving everything they own. Finding a moving company with expertise in one-piece moves will not only get the piece where it needs to go, but it can save your sanity. Here’s why:
1. They Have the Experience
Moving large, heavy, cumbersome pieces is not like picking up your couch. They behave differently and experience is the best way to learn how to manage that.
2. They Have the People
By that we mean that they have the sheer number of experienced people to handle a specialized move.
3. They Have the Right Equipment
From hoists to trucks, professional moving companies won’t shoe-horn your piano onto the back of a pick-up truck. And if they don’t have the equipment, they know where to find it.
Even though it’s just a single piece of furniture or equipment, there’s never a better time to hire a professional moving company than when you have a tough one-piece move.
