Everyone thinks that moving is incredibly easy. However, there are many moving myths floating around. It can be really hard to tell fact from fiction. Brothers is here to confirm (or deny) some of the rumors.

Moving Myth #1: You Only Need One Kind Of Box

FICTION. While it can be tempting to raid the local wholesale warehouse or liquor store for boxes, keep in mind that not all boxes are created equal. When moving, it’s important to find sturdy, uniform boxes in order to make transport safer and easier. Flimsy or damaged boxes can result in damaged belongings.

Moving Myth #2: You May Have To Move Some Items Yourself.

FACT. There are actually some things we can’t move. These items include combustible or flammable items (including fireworks, gasoline, and matches), firearms and ammunitions, chemicals, aerosols, paint, poisons (including weed killer or insect poisons), or propane tanks attached to grills. Please discuss any items of concern with your salesperson.

Moving Myth #3: Friday Is The Best Day Of The Week To Move

FICTION. Weekends are usually the busiest time of week. While we are happy to move your home or business any time you wish, our crews may be more readily available during weekdays. Regardless, Brothers Moving and Storage strives to work with your schedule as much as possible.

Moving Myth #4: You May Need Special Packing Materials

FACT. Bubble wrap can bulk up dishes. Sometimes newsprint won’t do the trick. (you can also read our tips on moving kitchen items) Part of your complimentary consultation is for us to evaluate the best type of packing material needed for the job. We focus on making sure that your items are carefully wrapped to prevent damage.

Moving Myth #5: It Doesn’t Matter Who You Use

FICTION. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: do NOT use a fly-by-night company. Brothers is a reputable, professional moving company with years of experience and knowledge. Additionally, we are licensed, bonded, and insured for your protection and ours.

Moving Myth #6: Brothers Is The Best Mover In The Permian Basin.

FACT. We’re not just tooting our own horn here. Brothers Moving and Storage was voted Best Moving Company for 2017’s Best of the Basin. We’re big on teamwork, treating our customers like family, and doing the right thing.
