Hiring professional movers is a great way to save you time, protect your belongings, and ensure that the job is done right. Although professional movers can move many items that you wouldn’t expect, from pianos to antiques and mirrors, there are also some limitations to what they will do.
Items You Should Move Yourself When Hiring Professional Movers
It’s important that you are prepared and ready to organize the items that your mover won’t take care of. Here are some examples of items that your movers won’t move.
Liquids, Gases, and Flammables
Most movers will not move liquids simply because this puts your items at risk. Liquids could be especially harmful to the furniture that is in the truck. Flammables and liquids are also prohibited for safety reasons, and to protect the rest of your household items.
Plants are fragile, require specific care, and can also be messy. For all of these reasons, you won’t find many movers that will transport plants.
At Brothers EZ Moving, we pride ourselves on being able to carefully move your valuable antiques and furniture. We prefer to draw the line, however, at cash, deeds, titles and jewelry. These items are often very personal. We recommend that you personally move any items of significant or personal value to you if it is possible. If you are able to take care of these items on your own, it is highly encouraged.
Safes Over 500 lbs
Our movers do not move safes over 500 pounds.
Pool tables are perfectly okay to load up on the moving van. Our movers will actually move pool tables, but we do not disassemble or reassemble them. Instead, our movers will move your pool table as-is, so that it arrives safely in one piece to your destination.
Moving can be a complicated process, and hiring a professional mover can certainly help. Knowing what your mover can and cannot help you with will give you a head start on your planning process for your move.
