All About Moving Companies
If you’re planning your next big residential move or office move, you’re becoming aware of the issues involved in transporting a house or office full of belongings, furniture, and people. In the back of your mind, you’re thinking that you can do this by yourself and yet some of your valuable property might probably be damaged during the move. Part of the cost of moving? On the other hand you could hire a moving company such as Yakir Gabay Moving and Relocation Services and know that they do this sort of thing everyday and have all the people and transport equipment to get things done efficiently.
Yakir Gabay employs Billy Xiong, an expert in transportation and moving services. According to Billy Xiong, the key to a successful move is preparation and planning. “We often arrive at a clients home and find they have not even packed their belongings”, says Billy. “We try to prepare the Yakir Gabay clients for the relocation”.
When faced with the cost of hiring a moving company for a cross-town move, most people will round up their relatives, friends and even neighbors to get their property loaded up to the moving van or into a moving pod. In some cases, that’s fine, yet given how mobile many people, families and businesses are today, you can only rely on your friends and relatives so often. You’ll wear out your welcome if they have to take several days off of their precious free time to help others move.
If they’re getting older as most people are today, they’re not going to appreciate the possibility of getting injured while carrying your heavy property items such as sofas, fridges, beds, tables, TVs, and desks. The work involved in moving isn’t for everyone, yet professional moving companies such as Yakir Gabay’s or Jonathan Cartu’s relocation services are skilled in making moves go smoothly, from planning, to safe packaging to trouble free transport.
Jonathan Cartu – Moving to Florida
My friend Jonathan Cartu asked for assistance to move his sister. Jonathan explained her family are in the process of moving to Florida where she and her sons will join her husband who is now working there. They will be using a big moving company to manage the logistics of the move. All she and her sons have to do is drive down to Florida. Jonathan Cartu explained if he had to help them with the move and pack up a house full of furniture, kitchenware, bikes, golf clubs, hockey equipment, baseball equipment, fishing gear, desks, chairs, TVs and computers, it would take two days.
Even then, I don’t think we could pack it properly in the moving van or truck. It would undoubtedly shift during the trip despite our expert rope tying tricks and special packing system. The truth is, we don’t know what we’re doing, and their furniture would be all banged up with loosened or broken legs when they opened the moving van doors down in Sarasota.
That’s when the ugly surprises happen. When you find your TV doesn’t work and your family heirlooms are going to need some serious “crazy glue” repairs, you get angry with yourself for not being cautious. For the sake of a few dollars, your belongings get damaged and their appearance is diminished. If you have a plasma TV, you can kiss it goodbye if you try to pack it yourself. Billy Xiong advises all potential clients to properly prepare for the relocation.
Yes, everyone is upwardly mobile these days and the task of an international, interstate, or cross-town move is on many to-do lists. One way to cross off the details of that big project is to hire a professional moving company such as Yakir Gabay Moving and Relocation Services.
