Complications in Moving

Relocation continues to be a complicated endeavor. The undertaking includes the sale of existing property, the search for a new home, and the appraisal and inventory of possessions. Moving companies play a crucial role in the success of a relocation effort; their reliability, customer care, attention to detail, and explanation of service determines whether the experience is positive for the client.

Today’s moves tend to be incredibly complicated, especially if the move transfers a person across the country or around the world. Most people accumulate a lot of possessions; furniture, kitchenware, electronics, and other items requiring different methods of packing and storing. Moreover, professional moving companies pack items not only to protect them, but also to make the unpacking process more logical.

Before the great westward migrations in the United States in the 1800s, most families stayed in one community or even one house for generations. They cherished their belongings but often had just a few. When they outgrew a house, they added rooms to accommodate their needs. However, as the country moved west, pioneers stowed their most valuable or necessary belongings and supplies in covered wagons and headed to lands that promised fertile acreage.

In the latter half of the 19th century, railroads took over the majority of freight express for commercial enterprises. However, many people continued to travel by wagon with their household goods because of the cost of shipping. The advent of the motorized trucks and paved roads in the first decades of the 20th century inspired cross-country moving by truck. This method of moving household goods eliminated the need for crating furniture. In addition, many people felt more comfortable knowing that their belongings would be loaded on a truck at one location and rehandled only at their final destination rather than being shuffled to and from various rail cars at multiple points.
