During a walkthrough of your home, we compile a detailed inventory of your items. No matter the packing option you choose, we still log and mark all contents in the home with identification details and future room location. We will also note any existing damages or special indicators attributed to your items so that we have a record of their condition prior to the move.
Before physical moving begins, we prep your home to minimize any potential damage by protecting the floors, door trim-work, and banisters. We wrap and pad furniture and other items and then systematically begin emptying the contents of your home into our moving truck. The items will be loaded into the truck carefully, and tightly, so as to avoid any shifting while traveling. As road travel begins, our support staff will continue to monitor the trip for timing and keep track of the items digitally.
Once we arrive at the final destination, we essentially reverse order: protect the new home, carefully unload the truck contents, place labeled items in their marked locations and unwrap furniture. If we are helping you unpack as part of your estimate, we will proceed with that next task. Finally, we clean-up our equipment and supplies.
Keep in mind, there are some potential cost-savings if you elect to be part of our recyclable program, where we will collect some packing items such as TV boxes, bins and wardrobe boxes for future use.
