Not everything in a home or business can be readily picked up and moved to a new location. Generally, heavy items — or those deemed awkward in everyday terms — need the help of an experienced moving company. UF Mover Guys, a professional Florida moving company, has the experience, equipment, and training necessary to make sure your heavy items remain intact and unscathed during your next move. Call us today for a free estimate!
How Can I Tell If My Item Is Bulky Or Heavy?
Generally, items are considered bulky or heavy if the individual weight is more than 250 pounds, which would require at least three movers. Often, these larger items need to be handled a certain way in addition to being carried upstairs or downstairs. Most household heavy furniture, such as dressers and sofas, don’t fall into this category but some items do. If you’re unsure how much an item weighs, check the manufacturer instructions or look up the item’s shipping weight online.
Specialty Items We Move
UF Mover Guys has a team of movers who can help home and business owners who need help moving heavy items 7-days-a-week.
Moving safes can be nothing short of a hassle unless you’re working with the home movers from UF Mover Guys. We know the proper way of handling safes of all size, from small and personal to large gun safes and how to move them without damage to the floor and surrounding structure.
Freshwater or saltwater, aquariums are popular choices to create an underwater oasis in a home or office. Moving them, however, can quickly turn into a challenge given the fragility of the display. We have the equipment needed to adequately dismantle and reassemble an aquarium while preserving the glass and interior habitat.
A hot tub or jacuzzi may not look weighty, but appearances can be deceiving — some types can weigh up to a half ton. Couple this with technical components, such as computer boards and wiring, and moving a hot tub is a task best left to a moving company.
Don’t leave behind your pool table because it’s big and bulky — call UF Mover Guys! It’s not uncommon for people to consider leaving a pool table for the new residents because moving this item is often beyond their realm of ability. Our team takes all steps necessary to protect every inch of the table, from the intricate woodwork to the felt, so you have years of enjoyment after the move.
Pianos & Organs
Delicate and often family heirlooms, pianos and organs require special attention to make sure nothing is marled inside or out. Throughout the move, our focus is on protecting these instruments with padding and stretch wrap while using special equipment such as a piano board to distribute the weight.
Paintings & Artwork
Attention to detail extends beyond a painting or piece of artwork itself. Padding, wrapping, and crating these cherished and often valuable personal items is crucial to assure they aren’t damaged. We do what it takes to protect these irreplaceable pieces during any move.
Home gyms, pottery kilns, and other specialty equipment found in homes and offices need special consideration during a move. Many times these items have multiple interworking parts that can be separated but if any part is damaged, the entire item isn’t functional. Each part is inventoried and carefully wrapped and loaded into the moving truck then unloaded with the same tact.
Outdoor Playhouses & Swing Sets
Not only do outdoor playhouses and swing sets provide hours of enjoyment and entertainment for families, but they’re also an investment. Except when it comes time to move, many people lack the experience and equipment necessary to disassemble, transport, and reassemble them. We’ll examine the equipment and creates a custom diagram to assist with reassembly and verifies all parts are suitable for transport.
