WHAT IS A MOVING COMPANY AND WHY IS IT SO CONVENIENT TODAY?

WHAT IS A MOVING COMPANY AND WHY IS IT SO CONVENIENT TODAY?

Are you considering moving your home or office? You have a choice: to carry out the move on your own or contact a moving company. The second option is much preferable, but, first of all, you should know how a moving company works and what are its advantages.

Moving companies specialize in different types of moves. Office and residential moving, packing and unpacking, disassembling and reassembling of furniture, storage of things…All this is included in the scope of services of such companies. The advantage of a moving company is that it offers a full range of services related to any type of moving, from consultation to the transportation of things.

So, you are planning to move your home or office and call a professional moving company. A moving consultant speaks with you. You need to answer some questions about the details of the move: addresses, size of the premises, the required range of services.

In some cases, the consultant is ready to inform you about the preliminary cost of the move at the end of your conversation. If your move has features or the premise is large enough (4-room house for example), you will be offered a free on-site estimate. An appraiser will come to your office or home and draw up an inventory list. You can order both the whole range of services and individual services, for example, only transportation or only packaging. After that, within 1 business day, you will receive an accurate estimate of your move. If everything suits you, you can safely book your move.

Next comes the turn of the movers. It should be noted that professional moving companies are provided with all the necessary packaging materials, so you don’t have to deal with this issue. In addition, Global Gentle Movers has experienced professionals who know how to handle specific items. Therefore, you can be sure that nothing threatens your things.

After packing the items, loading begins. This work is also performed by professional movers who know all the details of loading. After all, some things require special handling, for example, office equipment, or furniture. When contacting a moving company, you can safely entrust even fragile things to professionals.

The transportation of things is carried out on the trucks of the moving company, so your participation is not required. Global Gentle Movers will take care of everything!

The undoubted advantage of moving companies is that office or residential moving with a professional moving company such as Global Gentle Movers is much cheaper than a similar move but on your own. This is explained by the fact that all the work on the move is taken over by the moving company. This way, you or your employees can continue to do their direct work. In addition, the cost of services in such companies is clearly fixed, in contrast to hired loaders or car services.

    Hired these guys two weeks ago and they did a great job with moving some stuff from my dental office to the storage. They were quick and careful with all the equipment, so you can definitely trust them with fragile and expensive stuff. Also, they have reasonable rates which and friendly stuff that knew what they were doing. Thank you guys one more time!

    With the help of professional movers from GGM, we had a smooth transition of moving our belongings fron our home in one side of town to the other. Brian and Adam were professional, on time (arrived 15 min. earlier than promised), and most of all, they worked non stop and we had to prompt them to take breaks. They took the care to wrap furniture and fragile items like T.V. and glass table tops. We can't thank them enough for their help and will definitely refer GGM to others. And of course, call on them again for future moves.

    I had a wonderful move from the Bay Area to SoCal. Kiryl is responsive, professional and thorough. All of my items were moved smoothly and carefully. Not one thing was missing or broken. Compared to the other big box movers, Global Gentle is super affordable, and the quality is excellent. I will certainly use Global Gentle for my next move in SoCal.
