Because there are so many variables and each situation is so unique, providing an exact quote for a move is difficult. The information you provide allows us to provide you with an estimate and a ballpark figure for the job.
Our estimates are solely based on the inventory and access information you provide. It is critical that you provide an accurate list of all the items that will be moved, as well as accurate details about the access, such as long walks, stairs, elevators, and so on. This will help ensure that the amount you pay is as close to the estimate as possible.
Unfortunately, scams are prevalent in this industry, as well as across the state and country. We always recommend that you thoroughly research a moving company whether you hire First Southern Vanlines or not. Pay special attention to things like estimated pricing, the availability of third-party insurance, and proper licensing. Also, look into their reputation as a reputable mover (online reviews can help in this area).
It is no secret that moving from one location to another, whether within or outside of a city, can be a daunting, challenging, and stressful event in one’s life. You may have to deal with a number of other tasks during the course of your move. Managing the moving process will take up a lot of your valuable time and effort. To be honest, you won’t be able to handle the entire relocation process by yourself. As a result, it is essential to work with a reputable packer and mover business for all of your relocation requirements.
Try to give moving companies as much notice as possible, especially if you’re moving during the summer or at the start or end of a month (regardless of the season). We recommend making plans at least four to six weeks in advance of your desired moving date. This increases your chances of getting the pickup and delivery dates you want. Call the moving company to confirm your reservation and to set up your packing, loading, and delivery dates.
Because the majority of scratches and nicks occur while moving objects around the house, we believe it is critical that every piece of furniture be fully padded and protected inside the house. This helps to protect both the furniture and the walls during the loading process.
It is typically acceptable to keep your clothing in your dresser drawers throughout the move. Anything in the drawers that might move or roll around while being transported should be taken out to prevent damage. It is best to at least partially empty the dresser if it is particularly big.
For your own peace of mind, you might want to think about transporting jewelry and other small valuables in your own car. Larger items, such as art, antiques, musical instruments, special collections, or other items with great personal meaning and value, should be pointed out to your movers at the start of the moving day so that they can take the necessary precautions to ensure their proper care.
Not a lot. Simply clear the area around the piano as well as the pathways to all entrances and exits so that we can move your piano safely. Please move any items on your piano before our arrival, and if there is a piano stool accompanying the piano, please remove any sheet music and other items if there is storage here.
