The picture above was posted online by someone who just had his stairs scratched by the movers. Unfortunately, this kind of moving “horror story” sharing is all too common online. It’s no wonder that some people view the idea of using furniture movers as taking a huge gamble with their belongings.
In our experience, the number one reason moving companies damage furniture is because the movers are not properly trained with the correct packing techniques. When it comes to moving large items, the movers will typically come inside, pick up the item, and then take it outside the home where the moving crew will then pad it for the truck.
There’s one huge problem with this. From the moment the movers pick up a piece of furniture to the time they get it outside, it is venerable to damage. Think about it: your Grandma’s antique sofa has a long way to go through the house. It has to make it through narrow doorways, up and down stairs, and past moving boxes.
No matter how careful your movers are, that sofa could easily touch something else and get scraped or dinged. That’s a big reason why incidents depicted in the above picture happen so often.
Garrett’s Furniture Movers are Different
That’s why when we founded Garrett’s Moving & Storage in 1992, we decided to go about the furniture packing process in a different way. Instead of taking your furniture outside before we prepare it for the truck, we get your furniture ready inside the home. This way, the furniture is protected from getting scratched on the way to the truck.
In addition, we are one of the few moving companies that offers free shrink wrapping of furniture. Doing this provides extra protection and moisture resistance, which will provide extra peace of mind if it happens to be raining during your move.
