Contact / In-Charge
When a moving company signs a deal with you to move your belongings, they put one of their persons in charge. This person will be your one-point contact when it comes to all details regarding the move. This person will give you timely updates regarding the move and handle queries and last-minute changes, if any.
When you don’t have to coordinate the entire move and can be a happy bystander getting updates as and when needed, your stress level drops drastically.
Packing And Unpacking
A full-service moving company will have experienced people pack up everything in your house in an efficient manner. The more the number of boxes you have, the more space you will require. This might lead to multiple trips, costing you more than anticipated. A professional mover will be able to pack your belongings so that it utilizes the space to the maximum extent, thus saving you trips and money.
When they reach the destination, they can also help you unpack based on your instructions and guidance. This makes it easier for you to settle into the new place when running short on time. This is very handy when moving offices as there is a designated space for everything and one just needs to unload all packed items. Office work can resume at the earliest.
When you have to pack breakable items like glass, gadgets, delicate art and craft, etc., the packaging materials required will differ from your regular boxes. A full-service moving company will have access to all this and will be able to provide you with your requirements in no time.
They will also provide you with different sizes of boxes, tapes, scissors, blades, stuffing for boxes, etc. You won’t have to step a foot outside looking for packing-related items.
When you are moving across borders or are moving delicate items that require permission, a lot of paperwork will be involved. A full-service company will have contacts and the expertise to do this with ease. They can get you the required documents to peruse and sign; they can get the various permits required for the move and get all clearance.
Not having your papers in order can result in some serious issues when you move. They will have a team dedicated to this task which makes everything flow smoother.
When you employ or hire different companies for different aspects of the move, the overall cost can be very high. Everyone will have a minimum margin, and you will be covering each of them.
A full-service company covers all moving-related concerns under one roof. This enables them to offer their services at competitive prices.
Hiring a full service moving company can be awesome in many ways, as mentioned above compared to hiring professionals for just a part of the moving process. When you get everything covered in one deal, it makes the entire thing even easier on you.
