moving and storage

Moving is never really an activity people look forward to doing, and the process of literally moving furniture to and fro is daunting. Boxing items up is one thing, but actually moving them is quite another. No one wants to throw out their back or get injured. Luckily, there's an easy solution to your moving headache: call moving services! Whether you need residential moving services or commercial moving services, there are always professional movers on hand to help you make the big change. You'll save yourself the stress and potential injury by letting licensed and insured movers do the heavy lifting for you. If you have a preferred mover, keep in mind some of the busiest moving times (May through September, end of the month, weekends) and book early to make sure you can move when you need to.

Do I Really Need a Moving and Storage Service?
We can't say for sure whether you really need one, but chances are at some point in your life, you're going to want to let someone else help you move. Even if you think you're staying somewhere permanently, don't count on it! The average American will move about 12 times in their life and over 60% of adults have moved to a new place at least once. If you rent your home or apartment, you're even more like to get up and go -- over 30% of renters move at least once a year.

And, the older you get, the more likely you are to have accumulated more possessions -- and more expensive possessions that you don't necessarily want to leave behind. A moving service is great if you're scared about moving antiques, high-end, or fragile furniture yourself (or with friends) and want to make sure it gets to your new place in the same condition.

What Should I look For in a Moving Company?
One excellent measure of a moving company is to see whether they're licensed and insured -- you'd be surprised at how many moving companies are not. Check out reviews and testimonials from past customers -- were they satisfied with their moving experience? Were the movers professional, courteous, and efficient? If the moving company has repeat customers and gets plenty of referrals, that's another good sign. Are they a moving and storage company? Companies that offer temporary storage can often be quite helpful if you have an up-in-the-air timeline.

Also check and see what the moving company will and will not move. Depending on the items you're moving, you may need a specialized mover -- if you're moving a baby grand piano or some other large, expensive item, for example. It's good to know that upfront before getting in touch and hiring them.

You get an added bonus if the moving company has local ties to the community or gives back in some way. For example, we're a part of Move for Hunger, so any unwanted non-perishable foods that you're leaving behind we'll collect and deliver to the San Diego Food Bank. It's a good feeling to give back to the community we work in!
