    Dear Mike:

    A note to get you know that your crew, led by Jason, did an exemparly move for us. From the moment they arrived, until everyhing was unloaded they treated our furntiure and other belongings as if they were as important to them as to us. They were highly professional, personable, and worked together like a well oiled machine.

    Jim and I have moved 4 times in 11 years and this was by far the best...

Moving Pitfalls (Part 6) – Not Estimating New 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 6—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.
