Certain fragile items are just too precious to be packed in regular boxes. To make sure fragile items are kept safe, we have several options available. Reinforced boxes or moving crates may be adequate to ensure the item stays safe. In other cases, we may recommend that custom crating is made for the fragile item. Our custom crates are designed and built by industry leaders who have made crates for items ranging from sensitive medical equipment to priceless antiques.
Vehicle Moving Services
The same precautions are used to move your vehicle as manufacturers use when shipping cars. To ensure the safe transport of your vehicle, the battery is disconnected and it is decked from above to prevent any scratching. The vehicle is secured in place and shippers are professional drivers with insurance. You can even keep items inside your car to be moved with it!
Boat Moving Services
Many Seattle residents have boats in Puget Sound. Depending on where you are moving to, a different method of boat transportation may be better, such as overland or by sea. We can arrange all of the details for you and even help you navigate through the complex world of ports, docking fees, and regulations. Whether a small boat or large yacht, you can sit back and relax knowing that your boat will arrive safely.
Motorcycle Moving Services
Motorcycles can typically be moved in the moving truck with your other belongings. To make sure it doesn’t get even a single scratch during the move, careful steps are taken. The oil and gas are first drained from the motorcycle, and we also remove any protruding parts like mirrors to ensure they aren’t banged. To get the motorcycle into the truck, it is rolled up a ramp and then wrapped with padding before finally being secured in place with straps. We also have “decks” that allow us to make use of the space above the motorcycle while also keeping the bike safe.
Piano Moving Services
From spinets to concert grand pianos, we can help you arrange the safe, secure piano transportation you need. When moving pianos, it is important that only professionals with experience are called upon. Our teams of piano movers will expertly wrap and pad your piano, know which tool to use to lift and load it, and take extra steps like removing pedals and music racks. Piano moving should be arranged in advance to make sure that any special equipment or additional trucks are brought over on moving day.
Climate Controlled Moving Services
Do you have a valuable collection of wine? Or maybe you have irreplaceable old documents, photographs, and family heirlooms? These items, and many others, can be adversely affected by heat or cold. During summer or winter months, the temperatures in moving trucks can reach extremes. We recommend transporting temperature-sensitive items with you in your own vehicle, and keeping the temperatures inside carefully controlled. If you are unable to transport the items yourself, then we can arrange the climate-controlled transportation for you. The entire process is controlled so your belongings are never out of their ideal temperature range.
A common problem when moving to a new house is that you are not able to move into your new home, but must leave your old home. During this time, you will need to find storage for your belongings. We have connections with a reliable, secure storage facility in Seattle. You will be able to access your belongings in storage at any point. When you are ready to move in, then our team will load up the items from storage and deliver them to your new home.
Extra-Large Item Moving Services
Do you have an extra large item which needs to be moved? We are up for the challenge! The problem with moving large items isn’t just that they are heavy, but that they often will not fit through stairways, doorways, or hallways. Depending on the size and dimensions of where it needs to go, we may need to find creative solutions like rigging the item so it can be brought in through a window. Our movers are have many skill sets, including being able to remove and return window and doorframes to help accommodate large items. To help with the weight of extra-heavy items like safes and hot tubs, we have forklifts and other professional equipment.
Rigging and Hoisting Services
To get a large or heavy item into a hard-to-reach place like a top-floor apartment or home with a narrow doorway, it may be necessary to rig the item and use a crane to hoist it into place. We have teams of movers who have been specially trained for this job. Steps are always taken to ensure your safety, and the safety of your belongings and building, including proper wrapping of the item which needs to be rigged and padding of the window frame or other areas. Our agents will talk to you about any arrangements which must be made to get permits for rigging and hoisting at the origin and destination.
