Cross country moves can be stressful and frustrating. This is a time when you go through clothing and other items which have been taking up room in your house sometimes for years, trying to decide which items are really worth the 2,000 mile journey. If want to move
your furniture, then this article will apply to your cross country move. You will be looking for a cross country furniture shipping company that can offer you various ways to move your furniture.
The two big things you will want to consider when picking a company to ship your furniture across the country are the safety of your furniture and the reliability of the company. It is a good idea to learn more about how your furniture will be packed. Does the company
blanket pack furniture to make sure it is protected during the trip? Does the company look at each piece of furniture individually and decide how best to protect that piece of furniture in the move? Will they ship just one piece of furniture at a time, or do you have to ship large groups of furniture, household goods or business furniture to use the company?
See if the company that you choose can offer shipping alternatives. It may
be economical to have your small amount of furniture wrapped, loaded onto a
pallet and shipped via freight. Ask is the company uses 1” x 4” pieces of wood
to brace the pallet. The 1” x 4’s will not only protect your furniture during
shipping, it helps to prevent the furniture from moving around during the
freighting process. Just strapping the furniture on a pallet may not be sufficient to make sure that your furniture arrives safely.
An excellent way for a customer to save money is to ask for the pallet to be delivered to a residence with curbside delivery. The company that you choose to use should also be able to offer inside white glove delivery. This is a more costly option, but is an excellent option for seniors moving cross country.
It is also a good thing to get a feel for the company’s reputation. Know the company’s history. How long have they been in business? Have they handled shipments like yours before? Although a company which has been in business only for a short time is not necessarily a
bad company, hiring a company with an established reputation can give you peace
of mind knowing they have the experience to handle shipping your furniture.
