How to Stave Off Epic Failures When Long-Distance Moving Massive or Valuable Items to or from Tulsa and Oklahoma City

If you’re moving your Tulsa and Oklahoma City household and you’ve got to get something really massive or really precious from point A to point B, your imagination may be overwhelmed by all the things that could go awry. Catastrophe isn’t inevitable, though. There are ways around it, and we’ll present them directly. First, let’s examine a number of assumptions you may be entertaining that can – and often do! – lead to calamity.

man frustrated by moving aloneAssuming you’re justified in “going it alone” …
As the proverb says, 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 massive or priceless possession of yours to reach its destination no worse for the journey, get help: our help.

Assuming you can bubble-wrap anything …
Bubble wrap isn’t some magical material that keeps all things from damage. Believe us – it’s our job to know. Oh, sure, bubble wrap can be a great protective barrier for a lot of items. But if you plan on moving artwork, antiques, electronics, or anything of exceptional value, you’ll have to have something more. And you can get it: all types of strong specialty crates, boxes, and packing materials, many of which can be custom-fit to objects of practically any size and configuration.

Assuming all moving trucks are identical …
We can tell you from experience that all moving trucks are not created equal. Specialty items like yours require specialty trucks. And A-1 Freeman has them. These specialty trucks of ours have design [[features|elements]|attributes]63] that seriously restrict the movement of your goods during transport. That, plus your goods being packed in specialty materials, assures you that we’ll get them to your new home in perfect condition.

Assuming your priceless item is so bizarre, no one could have any idea 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 resign yourself to leaving your special thing behind, figuring it’s too special for shipping, give us a visit. We’re often relied upon to move such prized possessions as big paintings in bulky frames, statuary, finely wrought collectibles and bric-a-brac, costly antiques, and intricate electronics – even massive things like boats! Still wary of how we might transport your valuable item? Consult with us and we’ll show you clearly how we’d get it done. We expect you’ll be comforted!

Now that we’ve got those negative assumptions out of the way, let’s spend a bit more time looking at the positive side of the picture.

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.
