Why Hire a Moving Company: An Interview with Jonathan Purkey of Wrightway Moving Company

By Jonathan Purkey

Please describe a little bit about your company and its foundation.

Our Company has been in business for over 14 years. The owner of the company has been in the industry 18 plus years, and in 2000 formed Wrightway Moving Company.

What are some of the various moving services you offer?

We offer full service packing and safe relocation of your household goods items, as well as commercial relocation.

What are some of the advantages that come along with hiring a moving company?

Moving companies are faster, more efficient, and perform moving tasks on a daily basis. There is less chance of items being damaged. A moving company can perform the same task as if you rented your own equipment and moving truck, but do it more efficiently, in less time, and more safely.

What privileges do moving companies have that I may not?

We have access to more and better equipment than the average person, and also have working relationships with many property management companies, apartment buildings, etc., in order to help facilitate a pleasant moving experience.

Is it sometimes more affordable to utilize the services of a moving company?

It is sometimes more affordable. That is a question you will have to answer for yourself. How much is your time worth? If you rented a truck and all of the equipment but performed the labor yourself, generally you will spend less money. However, you will also spend a whole day doing strenuous work, not being familiar with how to stack the items in the truck efficiently and safely, and by the end of the day will most likely be frustrated and exhausted. When you compare that with having movers show up and perform the job in less time, without you having to lift a finger, which way sounds more appealing and a better way to spend your money?

How does hiring a moving company help me save time?

Our crews all have multiple years experience in the moving industry, and most have been with our company for 2 or more years. They can show up on a job, assess the situation quickly, and formulate a strategy to load and unload your items in the most efficient way possible. Our movers are familiar with a large variety of furniture, including how to disassemble and reassemble pieces that might take the average person a bit longer. Movers are also more efficient at carrying and maneuvering larger pieces up and down stairways and around corners.

Will I have insurance on all my belongings?

In the state of Texas, all licensed moving companies are required to carry a minimum amount of liability for items damaged. Moving companies, unless they possess an insurance license, cannot sell insurance. They can, however, offer an increased limit of liability for items damaged. Usually this is accompanied by an additional fee, and in some cases a deductible if a claim is made.

Any other advice about why homeowners should hire a professional for their move?

Moving is a stressful event. Statistically it is one of the top 25 most stressful events that occur in a person's life. Professional movers can help alleviate a large amount of the stress associated with moving by providing fast, careful, courteous and efficient services that take the burden away from the homeowner.
