Some items are more difficult to move than others, but S & S Moving in New Orleans is ready for the challenge. We offer specialty moving services for all your belongings from fragile antiques to vehicles and boats.
Moving Large Items
Most large items can be easily moved by our professional movers. However, there are some items which require special care. Some of these include:
Some of these items may require specialized dismantling and reassembly to move, such as is often the case with pool tables. With other large items that can’t be dismantled, we might need to bring in a wider truck and/or special loading equipment like lifts. Some large items are a challenge because they won’t fit out doorways or stairwells. In these cases, we may use rigs and lifts to get the items out through an upstairs window, or we can take apart the door frame (and return it, of course!). No matter the item or challenge, we are ready with a solution.
Moving Large Paintings, Mirrors, and Framed Objects
We have special boxes for framed objects. These boxes adjust to fit the size of the frame. With very large framed objects, specialty crating or packaging may be required, and we have teams which are ready to make packaging per exact size. We make sure that framed objects always stay safe during transport by using the most professional packing methods and materials.
We can help with packing and moving all of your electronics. Whether it is a large flat-screen TV or a valuable stereo system, we have the packing materials to move them safely. We can also help with disconnecting the electronics to get them ready for packing. Our pro packers know how to label and organize cables so reconnection is a breeze.
It doesn’t always make sense to drive your own car to your new home. Let us take care of vehicle transportation for you. We can even give you free estimates on vehicle transportation so you can judge for yourself whether you want to drive or have us move your car for you.
Many people in New Orleans have boats. If you are moving long distance, then you will need to find a way to take your boat with you. We can help by organizing boat transportation services. There are multiple options available, including land and sea travel. We also offer different levels of service, so you can decide whether you want to organize insurance, permits, and docking yourself or have us take care of everything for you.
Fragile Items and Antiques Moving
Don’t risk having your fragile items break during the move! We make sure your belongings stay safe by providing specialty services, including white-glove services, custom crating, and professional packing. We also offer a range of moving insurance options for your valuables when you use our packing services.
It is almost inevitable that you will have some items you want to get rid of before moving. Don’t waste your time and energy figuring out how to get rid of these items. We can take care of it all for you! We don’t just toss your unwanted items. We make sure they are recycled or donated to New Orleans charities so your old items can get a new life.
Storage and Warehousing
Ideally, we would all sell our homes at the same time we were able to move into our new homes. It doesn’t always work out this way though and there is often a transition period during which you must leave your old home but can’t move into the new one yet. For these situations, we offer safe and secure temporary storage solutions. Our specialty storage solutions include temperature controlled storage, as well as high-security storage facilities.
Temperature Controlled Moving
Have a collection of fine wine? Or how about an old record collection? These are just a couple of the types of items which may require temperature controlled moving. We make sure your items stay safe by providing moving trucks in which the temperature and humidity levels are carefully controlled throughout the entire moving process.
And much, much more!
