The definition of a mover’s job is to help other people move. Households include beds, libraries, desks, tables, furniture, clothing, displays, TVs, computers, armchairs, kitchen equipment, bathroom equipment and the list can fill up many pages. Unless every person that moves to a new house owns a truck it is impossible to move everything by loading the family’s cars.
If a business is involved the list is augmented by assets, possible inventory, machinery, computer networks that will have to be taken down and rebuilt,records in paper folders etc… In this case there is an additional restriction that has to be observed at all times. No mistakes or delays are allowed as the company must be back in business immediately. The same day if possible.Again it is impractical to try and move everything without the assistance of some professional moving crews.
The moving industry has been built and flourished around covering the above needs. The same premise is also the base that a lot of peripheral industries have evolved. Those who produce the packaging supplies, the dollies, the rollers and everything else that is used for a moving, also make their livelihood from the 40 million people that have a change of address every year on average.
Every professional company maintains an administrative department which does the logistics, sets the schedules, responds to the phone calls, signs the contracts of cooperation and provide you with every piece of information that you require. Their job is to set the stage so that all your requirements are met and accommodated.
However it is the movers and the drivers that actually make things happen. It is them who will come to your remises, handle your belongings with care and professionalism and take them through the ordeal in one piece and undamaged. First of all, in order to be able to provide these services, moving companies must be fully licensed, insured and registered to the departments of motor vehicles.
