Home moving companies provide a wide range of services, including packing and unpacking boxes, loading and unloading trucks, vehicle transportation and the personnel needed to physically make the move. Depending on the company, moving services are available for local or long-distance moves, storage needs and even international relocations.
Most home moving companies provide specialized services that are customizable for each move, allowing customers to pick and choose from a list of available services to fit their moving needs. For example, the homeowner can pack boxes that the moving company then loads, or the moving company can pack and load boxes. Many companies also provide a personalized checklist for all steps leading up to the move. Other special services include trash and debris pickup at the old house or at the destination house.
Certain home moving services can provide computer, television or home theatre installation upon arrival at the new house. Some moving companies can also help with less traditional services such as disconnecting and reconnecting Internet, getting utilities turned off and on, making travel arrangements and finding real estate agencies.
Prior to a move, companies can also provide basic packing supplies, including tape, boxes, bubble wrap and packing paper. Home moving services also provide insurance and move protection in case personal belongings are broken or lost during the course of the move.
