How to Avoid Epic Failures When Long-Distance Moving Massive or Valuable Items to or from Tulsa04/14/2017If you’re moving your Tulsa household and you’ve got to get something really large or especially valuable from one point to another, your imagination may be revving into overdrive with all the things that could fail. Calamity isn’t inescapable, though. There are ways around it, and we’ll get to them shortly. First, let’s look at a handful of assumptions you may be making that can – and often do! – result in disaster. Assuming you’re just fine “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 safeguards all things from damage. Trust us – it’s our job to know. Oh, sure, bubble wrap can be a superb protective barrier for many items. But if you’re considering transporting artwork, antiques, electronics, or anything of exceptional value, you need a bit extra. And you can find it: all manner 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 unique, no one could a clue about how to transport it … You’d be astounded by what our team 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 transport, contact us. We’re often relied upon 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 wary of how we might ship your valuable item? Consult with us and we’ll walk you through how we’d do it. We expect you’ll be relieved! Now that we’ve got those negative assumptions out of the way, let’s spend a little more time examining 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 acquiring the extensive services of a top van line.
