In the imagination of many people, “moving” conjures images of cross-country road trips. It’s an idea helped along by popular media; movies frequently feature shots of such journeys. The sight of a moving truck following a family vehicle down the interstate is even found in children’s movies like Toy Story and Inside Out. This is not, however, how it always happen. People also move within communities or within states, from one regional city to another, or simply into a bigger or smaller house across town.
Whether it’s a long-distance move or a local move, everyone can agree that moving is a trial. There are few jobs bigger than packing up and transporting everything in a dwelling to another place and putting it back in order. It’s possible to do it without outside help but it will take longer, and unless one moves regularly, knows the drill and understands how to prevent the thousands of small things that can go wrong in any move, it may save quite a bit of sanity to hire someone to do it, instead.
Even if the move is simply to the other side of the street, great-grandma’s china plates can get broken if they are not packed well, and the lovely furniture that looks so nice in the living room may arrive to the new house scratched and dented if it is incorrectly loaded in the van. Professional movers know these risks and can prevent them with careful packing, the right materials, and a lot of experience. It’s easy to think a moving company will just put stuff on the truck, drive to the new place and then unload the items and collect their fee. But the truth is, many local movers in Plano are willing to expertly pack items before moving, and the even have storage options available.
