What Items Your Movers Can & Can’t Move
We have compiled a few of the frequently asked questions revolving around what the movers will do and what they will request you to handle. Our guys are as close to superheroes as they come, but they do have some limitations.
So you’ve decided to forego the physical and emotional stress of moving and you have hired movers. That’s great news! Now you’re thinking, “Sure… they move, but what else can I ask them to do?” Once you’ve hired movers, you are more than welcome to ask them to help with anything around the house, within reason. We have compiled a few of the frequently asked questions revolving around what the movers will do and what they will request you to handle.
The movers will:
- Rearrange your furniture.
- Move things in and out of the garage.
- Disassemble and reassemble furniture.
Think of the movers as ‘The Muscle’. If it’s heavy and/or you don’t feel like moving it yourself, the movers are more than happy to move it for you. This can include moving items in and out of your garage and rearranging furniture in your home to make sure it’s placed perfectly.
The movers will disassemble and reassemble your furniture for you, this includes those pesky Sleep Number beds!
*Please note, however, that if you disassemble the furniture yourself, the mover may decline reassembling it. Also, movers will not disassemble and reassemble bunk beds or cribs for the safety of your children.
The movers might:
- Disconnect and reconnect your washer and dryer.
- Dismount televisions.
- Disconnect and reconnect refrigerators.
Everything in this category comes with a disclaimer. The movers want to do everything they can to help you and make you happy. But like we stated before, the movers are the muscle, they are not handymen.
If you ask your mover to disconnect and/or reconnect your appliances or electronics, they will often do their best to do this correctly. However, you will be asked to sign a waiver that says they will not be held responsible if the items are disconnected or reconnected incorrectly.
The movers will not:
- Remove doors in rental properties.
- Hoist belongings to or from balconies.
- Park in restricted parking zones.
Sometimes the size and shape of a home can be less than complimentary to the moving process. Even though it may seem like it would be a simple fix, unfortunately we cannot alter the current state of your property intentionally. However, if you own your home and want the movers to remove the doors for easy entry, then by all means.
Hoisting belongings is just not safe. It is not safe for your items, or the people involved. Unfortunately, we cannot approve the use of ropes to maneuver around an interesting layout.
Movers are as close to superheroes as they come, but they do have some limitations – so try to be understanding when a mover lets you know that they cannot do something or if they ask you to sign a waiver. If you have any questions, always give us a call! Our crews go to extraordinary lengths to make all moves simple and stress-free. As always, happy moving!
