However, we’ll need the exact information about the size of your inventory and the number of your items. This way we’ll be able to provide a sufficient number of movers and accurate moving estimates. The more details you provide, the more efficient packing will be. Be sure to let us know if you have items that require custom packaging, so we can find a proper solution on time. With us, you have several options, complete packing service, partial packing of only fragile items, or only certain rooms.

Decluttering and downsizing before packing

Before packing and moving day, we strongly advise you to declutter your home. This way, you will avoid packing and moving things you no longer use. It will affect both, the number of your belongings, and the price of your moving accordingly. Research has shown that the average American owns about 300,000 items, and even a quarter live in clutter. You’ll be surprised how many things you don’t even use. Once you finish downsizing, our local movers Columbus Ohio can help you with all the other phases of the move. From disassembling your furniture and safely packing your items, to the transport, and unloading, we will be there every step of the way. We even offer an unpacking and reassembling service.

What to expect from local movers Columbus Ohio on a moving day

You don’t have to worry about carrying your belongings to the truck and loading them, we have skilled and trained movers for that. And our professional drivers will transport your belongings safely and efficiently to your new home. Many people opt for renting a truck to move everything themselves. That can be risky, especially if they have never driven a truck before. Move day is not the best time to learn to drive a truck. When hiring our local moving company in Columbus Ohio, you don’t need to worry about a moving truck or transportation between locations, as we take care of everything for you. We are equally successful in residential moving, as well as commercial and specialty relocations.

Once we arrive at your new home address, we carefully unload moving boxes and carry them into your home. Then comes the final step that many people overlook, unpacking. Interestingly, this is often a moment when damage occurs. Relaxed because the moving is over, people tend to carelessly unpack their boxes and break or damage items while doing it. If you want fast and damage-free unpacking, we also offer this service. As a result, you will be able to enjoy your new home that same evening, without tripping over boxes.
