All Moving Labor in Tulsa and Oklahoma City is Not Created Equal

Moving LaborWhen confronting the task of moving, you may find yourself thinking, "I would prefer to not lift that," and "I do not want to take forty trips up and down the stairs."

With that mindset, you might be ready to let anyone lug those boxes for you. It does not make a difference who does it, so long as you do not have to do it, right?  Not so fast.

Just because someone can lug boxes and is willing to lug boxes does not mean you should let them lug your boxes. Keep in mind: you are permitting these people in your house. They are touching all of your stuff.  You need to be selective who comes into your home.

Here are several things to ponder when selecting moving labor in Tulsa and Oklahoma City to ensure safety for you and your things.

Professionally Certified

This is very important. Professionally certified movers in Tulsa and Oklahoma City have gone through extensive background screening, so you can rest assured they are who they say they are, and they are trustworthy. Don’t hire a moving company in Tulsa and Oklahoma City without this certification. It's necessary for your own peace of mind.

Years of Experience

If you take a buddy's offer to help you move or hire the cheapest moving labor you can identify on Craigslist, you are opening yourself up to dangers. Even if everyone is totally credible, they do not automatically have the needed experience when it comes to moving heavy furniture, boxes and more. What will happen if one of them dings the wall with the couch? What will happen if they break your favorite dishes?

And do they understand how to put it all in the truck to make the best use of the space and prevent shifting that could cause breakage?

Experience is especially crucial if you're also wanting packing and unpacking services. There is a right way (and an incorrect way) to pack china, crystal, rugs, bulky furniture, appliances and more. Pieces that are too large to be boxed should be carefully padded. Making foolish mistakes (or simply being lazy) in this arena could cause damage to or complete destruction of your precious belongings.

Properly Uniformed

Imagine this: It's moving day. There's one person in athletic wear boxing pictures in the family room. There is someone in jeans packing dishes in the kitchen. And there is one person in cargo pants carrying your television out of the bedroom. All okay, right?

Except one of them is not even a mover. It is just someone who saw an open door and some inattentive owners, and he decided to help himself to your TV.

This is why it is essential to work with properly uniformed movers. You will know precisely 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 insignificant detail, but they are a crucial one.

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

Your movers are doing their job, but it is a very personal one. You're entrusting them with everything you own, all of the things that makes your house feel like home. Don't hand 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.
