You just bought a new hot tub, piano, safe or grandfathers clock. Now it is time to get it home. Most of the big box stores do not deliver. Some specialty stores deliver, but leave the item on your driveway. Shopping on line and buying used, usually means you will have to pick the item up yourself. These item are heavy and require experience. The last thing you need is to hurt yourself while trying to get a piano off the back of your pick up truck.
Call your local mover and ask them if they handle these items. Most moving companies will give you some idea of pricing over the phone. This can help you when negotiating the price you want to pay for the item.
Moving a pool table is something to save for the pro's. On average, a pool table can weigh between 500 to 1,000 lbs so it is important to know what you are doing so you won't get hurt.
If you have ever moved, I'm sure you can remember how stressful it was. I have moved many times over the years and that moment the moving van leaves, I realize I'm really in my new home. One particular move was to a new state 2,000 miles away. The mover said good by and an overwhelming feeling of relief and panic came over me. I realized at that moment that I didn't even know where the grocery store was. I was exhausted and hungry and didn't have a clue. Having that first neighbor come over and introduce themselves was such a welcoming experience. They brought me a folder which contained some local businesses that I may need. The first business I used was for delivery pizza that night. Below are some ideas for a welcome gift.
Local Menus - Get a bright colored folder and put in local menus of the places you like to eat. You can also include local plumbers, electricians, handymen, babysitters, newspaper, movie theaters and grocery stores.
If you are planning a move, you may be getting advice from a lot of different sources: friends, coworkers and family. The best place to get your questions answered is from your moving company. Below you will find some answers to the most common questions.
1. How soon should I book my moving day? It is never too soon to book your moving day. Summer is the most busy time for movers. You want to contact them at least 2 to 3 weeks before your local move. If you are moving long distance, contact them a month before you are planning to move.
