Local Moving Company
Local moving can be just as stressful as a cross-country or international move, but for different reasons. When you relocate to another part of your city, county, or state, you generally have less time to focus on the move itself. You spend your time trying to coordinate between new jobs and schools. Throw in a moving day, and you can find yourself making umpteen trips back and forth just to make sure everything got done. It can start to feel like you’re juggling chainsaws.
Compare this to a long-distance move where you typically get to focus your efforts on one thing at a time, getting the proverbial ducks in a row. By the time you get to moving day, there’s more time and energy to tackle it head-on.
Comfort and peace of mind, that’s what you need. At Element Moving and Storage, it’s our goal to give that to you through every phase of the moving process.
Many people prefer to handle the packing process themselves. That, or they do a mix of the two—leave the non-breakable items for a moving company and carefully store away the valuables on their own. We get it. Some items are so priceless, nothing can replace them. At Element Moving and Storage, our goal is to work within your preferences. In addition, we treat your belongings as if they were ours (unlike other moving companies). Every item is as important to us as it is to you. Moving with Element Moving and Storage will be a completely different experience than with that Craigslist mover.
Go with us and we’ll handle your belongings with care. We’ll secure them with quality materials, and professional service. We invite you to take a look at industry claims numbers, just to put this into perspective. The national average for filed claims is around ten percent. During our many years in business, we’ve trended at about one-third of that rate. For the last year, our claims ratio fell to a staggering less-than-one percent.
Local moving services available to you include everything from in-city, to anywhere in the state. Our billing options are simple and easy to understand, with most jobs billed by the hour. For larger, local moves—Dallas to San Antonio, for example—we do the advanced work to establish a simple travel fee that covers traffic time or other costs. That way, we can make sure you’re not hit with any hidden fees or surprises along the way.
All you have to do is tell us when you need us, and what level of service you require (i.e., will you do any packing yourself, or will you need us to handle everything from beginning to end?). You have options built around the exact level of convenience desired.
Our specialty is the higher-end customer who is truly concerned about their belongings’ state and has high demands. This means we’re used to working with any set of expectations you have to ensure that moving day is quick, easy, and without stress. We pride ourselves on being a boutique moving company that handles belongings with the required care. We securely wrap furniture, provide protection for your floors (in and out of locations), and carefully work around wall corners and banisters. In other words, we take every extra step to make sure there are no damages, and that goes for both your old location and the new destination.
An overlooked feature of local movers that customers can forget when hiring, is the type of equipment being used. Some companies rent used equipment or contract with a third-party van line. Doing that takes oversight out of the company’s hands, and puts the customer’s belongings into a state of uncertainty.
At Element Moving and Storage, we believe in maintaining control over every part of the transit process. From the types of trucks we use to the quality of the employee’s driving and handling, every aspect is vetted and works under strict guidelines. We own our trucks, hire our workers, and require a high level of training and certification. We ensure our trucks, dollies, straps, wraps, tapes, and boxes are the very best. We owe you nothing less for entrusting your local move to us.
