    Transporting Large Items

    When you are getting ready to move, there are many steps that you can take to make moving day as easy as possible. Packing and organizing ahead of time, getting rid of unwanted items, and labeling as you go can all go a long way in making the moving process more simple. But what if you have special care items that need to be transported? Things like cars, boats, pianos, and antiques can require some extra planning and preparation. Here are some tips for moving large items:

    1. Contact your moving company – a lot of moving companies offer auto transport services. If you have a vehicle that is not drivable, you may need to pay extra for an enclosed trailer.
    2. Let your moving company know the dimensions of your large items ahead of time – objects like pianos can vary in shape and size – give them a clear image of what needs to be moved.
    3. Consider where you would like the large items to go in your new home – because pianos and other large objects can be very heavy, you will want to know exactly where to tell the movers to put it down so that it won’t need to be moved again.
    4. And lastly – choose a company with a great reputation. The more careful the movers, the safer your belongings will be during relocation.

    Happy Moving!
