My Move

My wife and I recently moved from a Dallas townhouse we had been leasing for 2 years to our first house, also in Dallas. Between the two of us, we had amassed a sizable collection of “stuff,” which I had estimated to be around 7,000 lbs. (pretty standard amount for a moderately furnished, two-bedroom apartment). When it came time to move, I decided of course to use my company’s local moving department — Armstrong Local Movers.

In our effort to keep costs for the move low, my wife and I decided to do all of our own packing and carry highly delicate or breakable items in our cars. These included a 40″ LCD TV, our small wine collection and a large piece of coffee table glass. Our movers can easily transport those things, too, but I wanted to make it as simple as possible for them.

Moving day came one Saturday in late January and the crew arrived right within the window they were supposed to. These friendly guys were dressed in their uniforms and displayed a courteous and hard-working attitude. They put down floor protection next to the front entrance and wrapped furniture in protective pads. Then they set about stacking boxes on dollies, disassembling our bed and bookshelf and generally clearing the place out. The mattress was packed in a protective box. In about two hours, we were loaded and ready to go.

At our moving destination, the floor protection went down again. These are sheets of heavy cardboard that keep floors from being scratched, dented or soiled. The truck as unloaded and everything was put in the correct room in about an hour. The bed and bookshelf were re-assembled and the trash was cleared out. In a little under an hour and a half, we were moved in. Nothing was scratched, dinged or broken. From start to finish, this was a smooth move.

Yes, I do work for the company, but I can tell you from an insider’s point of view that this is the type of service we train our crews to provide on each and every move.

Great job, guys!
