6 Specialized Services You'll Want Your Moving Company to Provide

Relocating doesn't have to be stressful when you use the right moving company. This is especially true when you go with a reputable organization that offers a variety of specialized services that will make packing and starting the next chapter of your life a breeze. Below is a list of the top six services you'll want to look for the next time you shop for a moving company. 

1. Packing Supplies and Services

While it may be cheaper to collect boxes from friends and pack all of the items in your home yourself, it takes up a great deal of time. Instead, look for a moving company that will deliver packing supplies directly to your door.

Should you find yourself in a time crunch, you can call the movers up and ask them to come and do the packing for you. The experts will wrap, pack and label the boxes while you tend to more important tasks. 

2. Storage Services

In some cases, it isn't possible to settle on a new home the same day you close on the sale of your old home. If this situation arises, you'll be scrambling to locate a storage unit that can hold all of your things and you'll pay the movers twice — once to drop your belongs off at the storage unit and then again when you are ready to move the furniture to your new home.

Your best bet is to contract with a moving company that also provides storage services so they handle everything for you. You'll save money using their storage facility and you'll only have to arrange one point of contact instead of two. 

3. Delicate Care for Specialty Items

There are a few moving companies that won't handle over-sized items, like pianos, or items that are considered valuable. Looking for an organization that offers this specialized service means you'll get all of your belongings moved at the same time and for one agreed-upon price. Make sure you specifically state that you have antiques or fine art pieces that you need to transport when you request your estimate. 

4. Interstate Moving Services

In the event that your move isn't local, you'll need a company that provides interstate moving services. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has specific rules and regulations about interstate moves, so it is of the utmost importance that you choose a moving company that abides by these laws. In fact, the FMCSA requires all entities to update their information every two years, which means the moving company will stay up to date on the latest rules. 

5. Office Relocation Services

Your home may not be the only thing you need to organize for a move. If you have a small business, you may also need to relocate your office. Selecting a moving company that also caters to corporate moves will make it easier to schedule the packing for both locations, so the migration of your home and office can take place at the same time. 

6. After-Hours Customer Service

There's nothing more frustrating than not being able to get a hold of someone within the company when a small hiccup arises and you're on a deadline. That's why it is a good idea to make sure the moving company you choose has some type of after-hours communication service.

You'll be able to get an immediate solution to your problem or an appointment for someone to come out and take care of the issue at a time that is convenient for you.
