How to Stave Off Epic Failures When Long-Distance Moving Big or Valuable Possessions to or from Little Rock04/14/2017If you’re moving your Little Rock household and you’ve got to get something really big or special from one point to another, your imagination may be working overtime on all the things that could fail. Calamity isn’t unavoidable, though. There are ways around it, and we’ll present them shortly. First, let’s look at a few assumptions you may be entertaining that can – and often do! – result in catastrophe. Assuming you’re good “going it alone” … As the proverb relates, 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 big or priceless possession 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 magical substance that safeguards all things from damage. Believe us – it’s our job to know. Oh, sure, bubble wrap can be a fine protective barrier for lots of items. But if you’re thinking of transporting artwork, antiques, electronics, or anything of great value, yourequire a bit more. And it’s out there: all manner of sturdy specialty crates, boxes, and packing materials, many of which can be custom-fit to objects of almost 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 must have specialty trucks. And A-1 Freeman provides them. These specialty trucks of ours have design [[features|elements]|attributes]63] that severely restrict the movement of your goods during transport. That, plus your goods being packed in specialty materials, should convince you that we’ll get them to your new home in mint condition.
