My Moving Checklist

Houston Food BankRecently, I blogged about a moving company based out of South Florida that I love, but all that talk of moving and great moving companies brought another one to mind that I wanted to mention to all of my future clients in Texas. The name of the company is Hercules Movers & Packers. They are based out of Houston and provide moving services to the greater Houston area. This company is really fantastic. For starters, I want to mention that they are affiliated with the Houston Food Bank, which is America’s largest food bank. I don’t know about you, but that kind of affiliation speaks volumes about a company!

As I’ve already gone on about, working with professional movers can be a real lifesaver. They help take the stress out of moving by coordinating all aspects of the move. I’m not talking about throwing boxes onto the back of a truck and getting them to your new location! With expert movers, you pretty much just tell them what you’re moving, where you’re moving from and to, and when you need to move by. From that kind of information they can start planning out your whole move, while you can kick back, relax, and watch the moving magic unfold.

I like checklists – they help keep me organized both in my personal life and in my business, which is why I can appreciate the fact that Hercules Movers & Packers emphasizes the checklist. Before starting a move it’s important to put together a checklist of your possessions. This way you know what needs to be moved, the movers know how to price you correctly, and at the end of the move, everything can be counted and everyone can enjoy peace of mind.

How to Move a PianoYou know, in my last blog I spent a lot of time talking about the benefits of long-distance and local moving services for people relocating all of their possessions to a new residence (or business), so now I want to talk about the other services moving companies can offer, like fine art and piano moving. I don’t have a piano, but I do have a couple of fine art pieces I acquired after I started doing well in the hospitality industry. These pieces are my babies and I would be very upset if they were damaged in transport to their new home. Let’s not forget to mention that they’re also pricey pieces… Some professional moving companies, like Hercules Movers & Packers, are prepared to handle moves of delicate and expensive items. Not only do they have the equipment to move these pieces carefully, but they’re also insured, so if anything does get damaged at the fault of the mover you can expect some compensation.

Another nice thing about Hercules Movers & Packers is that they’ve got their own 20,000 square-foot storage facility. That’s pretty useful, especially if you’re in-between selling a house and buying a new one or if you’re temporarily relocating somewhere.
