How Columbia Movers Keep Track of Your Belongings
At Lange Moving Systems, our teams of Columbia movers handle hundreds of moves every year. If you are a disorganized person by nature, the thought of that responsibility probably shakes you to your core! Each of those hundreds of families owns dishes, books, electronics, clothing, tools, and a myriad of other categories of items that they expect us to get from point A to point B. It’s our job to make sure each individual customer has that expectation met, and that not a single sofa cushion, floor lamp, or box of stuffed toys gets misplaced along the way. How do we do it? Here’s a brief look inside our process and the amount of organization that it takes to pull off so many successful moves.
Coordinating Our Columba, SC Movers
At the head of every relocation project is a coordinator. This individual is responsible to survey the entire project ahead of time, communicate with the customer about any special needs or particularly bulky items (hot tubs!), and supervise the entire team of Columbia movers until the last piece is loaded onto the truck.
One of the biggest responsibilities of that coordinator is to maintain the inventory of all of your belongings. Every piece of furniture, painting, box, or other item that leaves your home and gets loaded onto the truck gets its own tag and number, which is reflected on the coordinator’s inventory sheet. If there is any difficulty on the other end of the move, the coordinator can identify precisely which item to look for and whether it was successfully loaded onto the truck at the origin. We also use advanced technology to manage inventory—more on that later.
NOT one of ours!
Special Packing and Loading Requirements
Just as you don’t want to lose a box of books during the move, you don’t want to find out at your new home that your piano, pool table, or antique armoire was packed without knowledge about the special care that those unique items require. Our teams of Columbia movers bring with them this knowledge as well as the commitment to treat each of your possessions as if it were their own. The coordinator for your move gives special attention to the packing and loading of these valuable items, helping to ensure that they arrive at your new home in the same condition in which they began.
Storage—An Extra Stop Along the Way
If you aren’t ready for delivery at your new home, or if you’re showing your house to potential buyers, you may need us to store your furniture for a period of time. We maintain the same detailed, highly organized inventory system in our state-of-the-art warehouse, which enjoys U.S. Government approval and zero defects over its last eight inspections. We take every precaution to prevent damage, pests, mold, and mildew—that’s our commitment to you when you entrust your belongings to us for storage.
Giving Our Columbia Movers the Power of Technology
We are always looking for ways to streamline the relocation process, making it easier on both our movers and our customers. With that goal in mind, we are in the midst of a large-scale technology investment project, moving toward a paperless inventory system. Our drivers and move coordinators use iPads and other digital tools to make the recording and transfer of your home’s inventory sheets more convenient and more secure. In addition to this push, we are also adding electronic trackers to every truck in our fleet, creating another level of security and accountability that gives our customers additional peace of mind.
The final line of defense against the loss or damage of your possessions during relocation is insurance. The unfortunate reality is that you can never predict or prevent a sudden traffic accident, weather event, or other incident that may impact your belongings while in transit. We carry the insurance necessary to completely cover everything that we handle for you while it is in our care.
Our Columbia, SC movers consistently enjoy high praise from both our valued customers and the local Better Business Bureau (rated A+). We want you to feel confident in our ability to move your family’s belongings to your new home with every possible precaution, and are always happy to answer any questions you may have about the process!
