All Moving Labor in Tulsa is Not Created Equal

Moving LaborWhen confronting the burden of moving, you might find yourself thinking, "I would rather not lift that," and "I do not want to take dozens of trips up and down the stairs."

With that in mind, you could be ready to let anyone carry those boxes for you. It does not matter who does it, so long as you don't have to do it, correct?  Wrong.

Just because someone can lug boxes and is willing to carry boxes doesn't mean you want to let them lug your boxes. Remember this: you are permitting these people in your home. They are touching all of your possessions.  It can't be just anyone.

Here are several items to consider when selecting moving labor in Tulsa to ensure security for you and your possessions.

Professionally Certified

This is imperative. Professionally certified movers in Tulsa have submitted to comprehensive background screening, so you can be assured they are who they say they are, and they are trustworthy. Don’t hire a moving company in Tulsa without this certification. It is necessary for your own well-being.

Years of Experience

If you obtain a neighbor's offer to assist you move or hire the bargain moving labor you can turn up on Craigslist, you are opening yourself up to dangers. Even if everyone is perfectly credible, they do not necessarily have the required know-how when it comes to moving heavy furniture, boxes and more. What will happen if one of them dings the wall with the recliner? What happens if they break your favorite dishes?

And do they understand how to put it all in the truck to maximize the space and prevent shifting that could lead to breakage?

Experience is particularly important if you're also needing packing and unpacking services. There is a correct way (and a wrong way) to pack china, crystal, rugs, TV’s, appliances and everything else. Things that are too bulky to be boxed should be scrupulously padded. Making silly mistakes (or simply being lazy) in this arena could cause damage to or complete destruction of your favorite things.

We've been moving things safely for more than 40 years. We can pack and move even the most delicate, oddly shaped, or priceless belongings safely and efficiently from here to there.

Properly Uniformed

Think about this: It is moving day. There is someone in athletic wear boxing books in the living room. There's someone else in jeans packing glassware in the kitchen. And there is someone else in cargo pants carrying your TV out of the bedroom. All good, correct?

Except one of them is not even part of the crew. It is just a guy who saw an open door and some preoccupied owners, and he decided to help himself to your TV.

This is why it's imperative to hire a moving company with properly uniformed movers. You will know exactly who is part of the moving crew and who isn’t--and it makes it much less likely that someone who is not would dare make an attempt to "help" you move.

Uniforms may seem like a minute touch, but they're an important one.

Plus, it is just more professional. A uniform is another sign that your movers are serious about what they do—it is not just a hobby.

Your movers are doing their job, but it's a very personal one. You're trusting them with all of your belongings, all of the things that makes your house feel like home. Do not turn that over to just anybody.

Best. Move. Ever!
Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
