Moving can be a new beginning, and hiring a professional moving company is a great way to start things off right: fast, simple, and stress free. When moving day comes around, the moving company of your choice in the greater San Francisco, CA area will have its own way of doing things, but for the most part, there is a general recipe to loading your truck.
Perhaps you did this one on your own, maybe even just partially. But if you enlist a full pack and move service, boxes are the first order of business. The crew will box all your smaller, loose items into 1.5, 3.0. and 4.5 cubic feet sized boxes. Fragile items such as fine china, kitchen breakables, and other delicate objects are boxed in double corrugated cardboard boxes and stuffed with packing paper.
Furniture is carefully wrapped in thick, padded moving blankets and secured with tape and shrink wrap. Glass panes and other sensitive surfaces are reinforced with one to several layers of cardboard over the blanket to ensure durability. Any objects with moving parts are secured or disassembled if need be, as well as any objects too big to move safely through the premises. Our
pack and move services will ensure your items get where they need to be safe and sound.
As with packing, boxes are first in line to get on the truck. Walls of boxes are carefully stacked according to size, weight, and fragility. Once the boxes are clear and the crew has room to wrap furniture, strong, square shaped furniture like dressers are best. These act as both strong base and fasteners for the boxes behind them. As the remainder of lighter, more asymmetrical furniture is carefully stacked, some of the bigger, more oddly shaped items occupy the remainder of the truck. This is when the stacker's creativity shines. Each move is different and therefore require different solutions.
Accommodating your schedule without compromising the quality of your move is important to us, your truck will arrive the following day at a time of your choosing.
Your level of preparedness is the greatest indicator for time of completion on the unload. Your crew will not need to meticulously stack your items, more of a grab and go situation, and therefore generally move faster than the load time. Some people have color coded maps with name tags on each room, others have no idea and simply want everything somewhere inside the property. Whatever the case may be, your crew is at your command.
