• Testimonials

    My wife and I wanted to personally thank you for the outstanding job your employees did in moving our daughter from Roanoke to Abingdon, VA on December 19, 2013. During the economic crisis we have been experiencing there has been several local and state to state moves necessary to keep a job or obtain better living conditions in our family. I am satisfied that considering all of the moves none have reached the quality of the move...

Moving Pitfalls – Not Estimating Construction Correctly

Pitfalls can happen during your move. A “pitfall” is a hidden or not easily recognized danger or difficulty. At Heritage Moving & Storage, Inc., we want to spare our Roanoke, Salem, Vinton, Smith Mountain Lake, Botetourt County, and Blacksburg customers from moving pitfalls.

Pitfall: Not correctly estimating the completion of a new-construction home.

If you’re building out a new house, there are other workers in the house trying to complete the build while we’re trying to move into the house. We’ve moved customers into houses that are three-quarters done with carpenters, electricians, etc., and other workers throughout the house. We’ve even moved customers into a home while people were painting throughout the house.

An incomplete house can create a dangerous situation for the movers and for the customer. Electrical wires, power tools, and other construction-related items can cause all kinds of problems and delays. Be sure that you are realistic and accurate on your home-completion date before scheduling your move.
