How to Avoid Epic Failures When Long-Distance Moving Large or Special Things to or from Tulsa

If you’re moving your Tulsa household and you’ve got to get something really large or really precious from point A to point B, your imagination may be working overtime on all the things that could fail. Tragedy isn’t certain, though. There are ways around it, and we’ll look at them shortly. First, let’s look at a handful of assumptions you may be making that can – and often do! – lead to catastrophe.

man frustrated by moving aloneAssuming you’ll be just fine “going it alone” …
As the proverb relates, if you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together. At A-1 Freeman we say, if you want that bulky or special possession of yours to reach its destination in pristine condition, get help: our help.

Assuming you can bubble-wrap anything …
Bubble wrap isn’t some magical material that safeguards all things from damage. Believe us – it’s our job to know. Oh, sure, bubble wrap can be an excellent protective barrier for many items. But if you plan on shipping artwork, antiques, electronics, or anything of significant value, yourequire something extra. And you can get it: all manner of sturdy specialty crates, boxes, and packing materials, many of which can be custom-fit to objects of just about any size and shape.

Assuming all moving trucks are the same …
Take it from us, all moving trucks are not created equal. Specialty items like yours need specialty trucks. And A-1 Freeman’s got ’em. These specialty trucks of ours have design [[features|elements]|attributes]63] that significantly limit the movement of your goods during transport. That, plus your goods being packed in specialty materials, should convince you that they’ll get to your new home in pristine condition.

Assuming your priceless possession is so one-of-a-kind, no one could possibly know how to move it …
You’d be surprised by what our crews at A-1 Freeman can move! Specialty shipments are our … uh … well … specialty. So, before you give up on your special thing, figuring it’s too special for transport, give us a visit. We’re often engaged to move such prized possessions as oversized paintings in bulky frames, statuary, fragile collectibles and bric-a-brac, expensive antiques, and complex electronics – even massive things like boats! Still wary of how we might transport your precious item? Get together with us and we’ll show you clearly how we’d get it done. We expect you’ll be relieved!

Now that we’ve given due consideration to those negative, let’s spend a little more time examining the positive side of the picture.

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.
