How to Avoid Epic Failures When Long-Distance Moving Massive or Special Items to or from Tulsa04/14/2017If you’re moving your Tulsa household and you’ve got to get something really big or especially valuable from point A to point B, your imagination may be working overtime on all the things that could fail. Calamity isn’t inescapable, though. There are ways around it, and we’ll get to them in a minute. First, let’s look at a number of assumptions you may be making that can – and often do! – lead to disaster. Assuming you’re good “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 big or special thing of yours to reach its destination in pristine condition, get help: our help. Assuming you can bubble-wrap anything … Bubble wrap isn’t some supernatural material that protects all things from damage. Trust us – it’s our job to know. Oh, sure, bubble wrap can provide a superb protective barrier for a lot of items. But if you plan on transporting artwork, antiques, electronics, or anything of exceptional value, you need a bit extra. And you can find it: all types of rugged specialty crates, boxes, and packing materials, many of which can be custom-fit to objects of almost any size and form. Assuming all moving trucks are alike … We can tell you from experience that all moving trucks are not created equal. Specialty items like yours need specialty trucks. And A-1 Freeman provides them. These specialty trucks of ours have design [[features|elements]|attributes]63] that significantly curb the movement of your possessions during transport. That, plus your possessions being packed in specialty materials, is your assurance that we’ll get them to your new home in pristine condition. Assuming your treasured item is so bizarre, no one could a clue about how to transport it … You’d be astounded by what our people at A-1 Freeman can move! Specialty shipments are our … uh … well … specialty. So, before you abandon your special thing, considering it too special for shipping, contact us. We’re often trusted to move such treasures as big paintings in heavyy frames, statuary, fragile collectibles and bric-a-brac, costly antiques, and complicated electronics – even massive things like boats! Still unsure of how we might move your valuable item? Consult with us and we’ll show you clearly how we’d do it. We think you’ll be relieved! Now that we’ve got those negative assumptions out of the way, let’s look longer at the positive side of the picture. 5 Reasons People Move With Tulsa’s Oil Capitol Relocation Today you have all sorts of options for long-distance moving – everything from renting budget U-Hauls for a DIY move, to employing a pod provider where you pack and they drive, to purchasing the extensive services of a top van line.
