Some people are fabulous movers. They have the entire endeavor down to a process, and know how to reduce their entire life into a cluster of small boxes, handy bags, and seamlessly move from city to city without a trace of stress. Other people might have a little more difficulty.
What separates the two groups? For a long time, I thought it was experience levels – obviously people who grew up with a military family, for example, became adept at moving. People who have to relocate often for their jobs develop a skill set that those of us who are more sedentary just don’t have.
Then I assisted one of these seemingly effortless movers and I learned their secret. Great movers don’t have inside knowledge about the best way to pack china dishes or ship antique furniture. They get professional help!
Boston Small Move Company
The first thing you need to know about planning a small move is that not all moving companies are the same. Some moving companies have a minimum load size. That’s no problem if you’re a seven member family with a house full of furniture, but if you’re a small family or single person with just a few possessions, you’re out of luck. Either you wind up paying top dollar for truck space you don’t need or you’re stuck moving your possessions yourself – unless you find a Boston moving company that specializes in small moves.
Student moves, transporting your possessions to and from university, are an example of a small move. Other small moves include professionals who are relocating and even retail establishments that are moving to a new address. During a small move, you might move furniture, personal possessions, technology such as televisions or computers, artwork and antiques. Each of these items requires its own customized packing solution. Working with a professional packing and shipping company for your small move allows you to access the expertise, skills, and materials you need to ensure your possessions are packaged properly, transported safely, and delivered to your next destination on time.
