How to Stave Off Epic Failures When Long-Distance Moving Large or Special Items to or from Little Rock

If you’re moving your Little Rock household and you’ve got to get something really massive or particularly valuable from point A to point B, your imagination may be overwhelmed by all the things that could go wrong. Tragedy isn’t set in stone, though. There are ways around it, and we’ll get to them in a minute. First, let’s review a handful of assumptions you might be indulging that can – and often do! – bring about catastrophe.

man frustrated by moving aloneAssuming you’ll be okay “going it alone” …
As the proverb tells us, if you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together. At A-1 Freeman we say, if you want that massive or precious thing of yours to reach its destination no worse for the journey, get help: our help.

Assuming you can bubble-wrap anything …
Bubble wrap isn’t some paranormal product that safeguards all things from damage. Believe us – it’s our job to know. Oh, sure, bubble wrap can provide a fine protective barrier for all types of items. But if you’re contemplating shipping artwork, antiques, electronics, or anything of major value, you’ll have to have something extra. And you can get it: all kinds of strong specialty crates, boxes, and packing materials, many of which can be custom-fit to objects of nearly any size and configuration.

Assuming all moving trucks are identical …
You have it on good authority that all moving trucks are not created equal. Specialty items like yours require specialty trucks. And A-1 Freeman’s got ’em. These specialty trucks of ours have design [[features|elements]|attributes]63] that seriously curb the movement of your belongings during transport. That, plus your belongings being packed in specialty materials, assures you that we’ll deliver them to your new home in mint condition.

Assuming your valued possession is so extraordinary, no one could a clue about how to move it …
You’d be astounded by what our team at A-1 Freeman can move! Specialty shipments are our … uh … well … specialty. So, before you resign yourself to leaving your special thing behind, figuring it’s too special for hauling, see us. We’re often trusted to move such prized possessions as large paintings in weighty frames, statuary, delicate collectibles and bric-a-brac, expensive antiques, and complex electronics – even massive things like boats! Still uncertain of how we might move your valuable item? Get together with us and we’ll walk you through how we’d get it done. We think you’ll be relieved!

Now that we’ve addressed those defeating, let’s look longer at the positive side of the picture.

Best. Move. Ever!
Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
