Scary Moving Stories for Halloween

When you work with a professional Santa Barbara moving company like Hazelwood Allied, you can expect the best. We are fully licensed and insured, with professional packers and movers who meet your every moving need. We’ve got everything you need including packing supplies, a wide variety of moving vans and trucks, and Santa Barbara storage facilities. For some shivers that are scarier than a ghost story, think about what could happen to home or business owners who don’t take advantage of a moving company:

  • Lost or damaged property: If you’re not dealing with a licensed and insured moving company, you could be putting your possessions in danger. There might not be any compensation for lost or damaged goods.
  • Unreliable timeframes: You may be told that the moving truck will arrive by a certain time, and make all the necessary logistics arrangements, only to receive a last-minute call that the company’s one truck is out of commission and they won’t be able to complete your move today.
  • Poor planning: Make sure a moving company representative comes out and takes a professional survey of everything that needs to be moved. This can matter a lot in terms of the cost estimate, size of the moving vehicle, and number of movers required. If you have a large sectional couch, grand piano, or huge freezer to move you want plenty of professional movers with the right equipment and the proper sized truck on hand to keep your property safe.
  • Physical injury: It might seem like it’s not too difficult to move furniture and household belongings, but one wrong move could wrench a back or twist a knee. You could be out of work for weeks, and the money you saved by doing it yourself will go to doctor and hospital bills.
  • Vehicle damage: Not all vehicles are made for moving household items. People who try to cram their entire bedroom set into the back of a small pickup truck risk having the furniture fly off or causing damage to the vehicle itself.
  • Inept drivers: It’s not easy driving a larger vehicle, especially if you’re not accustomed to the new area. Wrong turns, low overhangs, closed highways, and traffic snarls could all add up to one nightmare of a move.

Don’t let any of these scary stories happen to you. Contact Hazelwood Allied for all your moving and storage needs.

Letting someone other than yourself get hold of your personal belongings, let alone move it to a different location, really seems scary. I am glad that this moving company in Santa Barbara is here to help us when it comes to moving and storage. Happy Halloween everyone!
