When you hire a moving company with professionally trained movers, the experience is like nothing else. Something you expected to be tiring and stressful suddenly becomes a breeze, and before you know it, you’re in a new home with all of your furniture exactly where you wanted it!
It’s not an accident that we give our customers amazing moving experiences day after day. By the time our movers are done with our rigorous, 200-hour training process, they’re the best in the industry. Here are three of the most amazing things about our movers.
1)They know exactly how to prevent scratches on your floors and dents in your walls.
Have you ever tried moving heavy furniture with your friends or family members? Most of you probably have, and it was likely a challenge. In the process of moving furniture, you might have accidentally left a few dents in the walls or produced some small scratches on the floors. It’s easy for laypeople to make those mistakes, but professionals should know how to avoid them.
Our movers know how to take every precaution to avoid damaging your home and possessions.
Here’s just one example: before our movers lift furniture through an apartment, they’ll pad wrap the doors, walls, and even elevators so everything in the building remains pristine.
At TRISTATE, we take pride in treating our customers’ homes and possessions with respect and care. You can rest assured your property is safe with us.
2) They’re insanely fast and efficient.
I remember the first time I had to help a friend move out of a two-bedroom apartment. I never thought it would end! My friend swore moving his stuff would take only a few hours, but after spending the entire day lugging his stuff around, we weren’t even halfway done!
Our movers at TRISTATE are more efficient with their time. They understand that you’re not only hiring them to lift things–you’re asking for help moving on to the next phase of your life. And you don’t want to have to deal with a painful, tedious transition.
Our movers know how to move quickly and efficiently, so you don’t have to feel bored or stressed.
3) They’re patient and respectful.
No one likes a jerk. But we especially hate jerks when we’re the ones paying them to complete tasks for us.
Here at TRISTATE, we understand that every client has his or her own individual needs and preferences, and we’re ready to accommodate them. If you ask our movers for any last minute requests or corrections, they won’t moan and complain about it. They’ll just help you. It’s their job!
Our movers are committed to giving you the best value for your dollar. You’re not paying them to moan, complain, or give you a hard time, which is why they will treat you with the respect and decency you deserve.
Don’t Settle For Less Than Stellar Service

No matter how excited you are to relocate to a new place, there’s an inconvenient, unavoidable fact about moving: it’s stressful.
It makes perfect sense that moving would trigger psychological stress. Your home is supposed to be like a sanctuary away from the outside world, where you have full control over your physical surroundings.
But during the process of moving, you’ll probably feel a bit less control over your surroundings. Once you begin packing, your once stable and familiar environment will likely become a reminder that you’re in a transitional period. And when you first enter your new apartment or house, your stuff probably won’t be organized right away. Your new surroundings can become a reminder of all the work you have to do in order to feel at home again.
Luckily, there are things you can do to make moving less of a drag. Here are three tips for making your moving experience less stressful.
1)Take inventory of all your stuff.
Unless you’re a hardcore minimalist, you probably have more stuff than you realize. If you plan to move that stuff from one place to another, you should know what it is, and how you’ll transport it.
Here’s how I would suggest taking inventory of your stuff: go from room to room of your current home, and simply write down the name of each individual item in a given room. Take note of everything, including furniture, sheets, old DVDs, clothing, dishes, and toiletries.
When you come across an item you want to take with you to your new home, write down the name of the item and how you plan to pack and transport it. (Writing packing plans in advance is a great way to prevent items from getting lost or damaged during your move.) When you come across an item you realize you no longer have use for, take note that it belongs in a donation pile.
Once you’ve taken inventory of your stuff, it’s a good idea to copy all of the information you’ve written to a word processing document or spreadsheet, so you don’t accidentally lose it and have to start over. I personally recommend Google Sheets.
Pro tip: Start taking inventory early, so you don’t have to deal with the stress of rushing.
2) Plan your new home’s interior design and organizational layout in advance.
Imagine moving into a new home with a giant pile of stuff. Wouldn’t you prefer to know exactly where to put all of that stuff?
By the time you move all of your stuff from your old home to your new home, you’re going to be pretty tired. The last thing you’ll want to do is make a plethora of last minute, subjective decisions about where everything should go.
That’s why you should take a careful look around your new home before you move in, and make concrete plans for your interior design and organizational layout.
3) Hire professional movers.
You want to know what the most difficult parts of moving are? Lifting lots of heavy stuff for hours on end, and moving cumbersome, bulky items through narrow doorways.
Physically moving all of your stuff isn’t something you can do on your own, and while your friends and family might be willing to help if you ask, they might not be as helpful as you would like. (Unless they’re all Olympic powerlifters.)
Luckily, there’s a simple solution to this problem: you can hire reliable professionals to do all the heavy lifting and awkward maneuvering for you.
