If you are planning to move soon and haven’t yet found a comprehensive moving company that can handle the heavy lifting, to make the experience less stressful, the following tips will give you some ideas on how to identify the characteristics of a moving fleet.
Unfortunately, there are many scammers that can deceive you by offering services that, in the end, they do not provide. Likewise, you may come across novices who, although they have every intention of carrying out your move in the best possible way, do not have the minimum equipment necessary to do so.
What is freight transport?
Freight transport could be defined as the means of transport that is responsible for the transfer of goods from one point to another.
This is a service that is hired to move any type of goods and merchandise, using different mechanisms to keep the objects in good condition and within a specific period of time established.
They are usually large, valuable, bulky, numerous and/or heavy cargoes, whose transportation requires special conditions. However, there are services for all types of cargo, regardless of the number of objects to be moved.
Characteristics of the service
There are key points to identify a good company to move your furniture, appliances, equipment or whatever you want. Pay attention:
- The volume of the load will determine the size of the truck bed. Not all moves are the same, since some people have larger belongings than others, and in order for all the objects to be safe (meaning that there is no risk of hitting the walls of the truck or each other), the most important thing is for the truck to adapt to the load and not for the load to adapt to the truck.
- This type of transport requires spaces of all kinds, such as vaults and containers.
- The staff who drive the truck and those who are in charge of handling the objects must be kind, respectful, responsible, punctual, agile and must know how to operate their equipment.

If you don’t want to be taken for inexperienced, know the things to consider about moving trucks before hiring a company:
Vehicles in good condition
It is a must that your objects are moved in vehicles in good condition. It does not have to be a truck of the year, but one in optimal conditions, to minimize accidents or unforeseen events while the transfer is made.
There is no excuse for lights and headlights to fail, tires to be out of balance or in bad condition, the truck to run out of gas halfway, or any other avoidable situation.
No matter if it is new or antique furniture, the care must be the same: it must arrive intact to the destination you indicate.
A moving company is hired so that your belongings arrive at point B in the same state in which they were found at point A, in a fast, safe and responsible way.
To achieve this, human and technological resources must be available to ensure the utmost care is taken when handling the items to be moved.
