6 Things to Expect from Full Service Movers

6 things you can expect from a full-service moving company

At some point, almost everyone needs to manage a move – but how can you handle a relocation with minimal stress? A full-service move is the best way to avoid relocation worry, hard work, complications, and headaches. 

However, not every moving company is equipped to offer full-service moving. Samba Moving is one of NYC’s top moving companies and is proud to provide invaluable services that will definitely free up your time, save your back, and save your mind from worry and stress. Let’s take a look at the six key services that are offered with a full-service move:

1. Premium Packing Materials 

Who has the time to go searching for boxes, packing paper, tape, and all the other materials needed to properly pack belongings when they’re being moved? A full-service mover supplies every material needed to properly wrap, pack, and box your belongings. They also provide high quality moving blankets, picture boxes, and other customized materials that ensure the safety of your stuff.

2. Furniture Disassembly 

Many of today’s homes feature comfy large sectionals, extensive entertainment systems, impressive king beds with head and footboards, and more. Large, heavy items need to be disassembled in order to safely remove them from your home, pack them on the moving truck, and get them into your new home unscathed . Full-service movers bring the proper tools to carefully disassemble large or heavy furniture items so that they survive the move intact and unharmed. The crew also reassembles the items in your new home and makes sure they are placed where you specify.

3. Complete Home Packing

It’s likely you’ve moved before, so you know the time and hard work that’s involved in packing up your household. Just the kitchen alone can take several days to pack. Experienced and trained packing crews will have your belongings safely wrapped and boxed in a fraction of the time that it may take you to do the same job. Full-service crews also know how to handle fragile and valuable items such as glass table tops, antiques, and artwork. 

The full-service move also includes unpacking. Unpacking is a job that can take days when you do it yourself. Imagine the luxury of having all of your belongings unpacked for you. All you need to do is provide the guidance of where the moving crew should put things. Full-service unpacking gives you the time to focus on the many tasks of settling in, getting back to work, and/or making sure your family transitions to the change.

4. Custom Crating 

And speaking of artwork or fragile/valuable items – full-service movers will construct custom wood crates on site to protect fragile or valuable artwork such as sculpture, chandeliers, paintings, and more. Each crate is designed and built to provide maximum protection for the item.

5. Furniture Donations and Packing Materials Removal 

Another major moving hassle is finding the time to haul away or schedule pick ups for items you no longer want. A full-service mover will manage this for you. Plus, once the crew unpacks and unwraps your belongings, they’ll remove all of the packing materials so you don’t have to.

6. Expert Loading, Transporting & Unloading 

Carrying heavy boxes, unwieldy furniture, and appliances isn’t only exhausting, it can result in muscle strains and physical harm. You can avoid the worry of injury when you go with a full-service mover. 

Full-service movers take pride in providing high quality equipment and expertly trained crews who have the know-how to move heavy and cumbersome household goods. They’re experienced in the best way to properly pack each item onto the moving truck for maximum safety. Once the truck arrives at your new destination, the crew will carefully unload and carry your belongings into your new home. This means that from start to finish, you won’t do any lifting. This is a huge boon for NYC dwellers who may be moving in or out of a no-elevator building with several flights of stairs. 

And between the loading and unloading, your goods are cared for in well-maintained moving trucks that are equipped with special suspension that ensures the safe transport of your household goods.


Moving is a heck of a lot of work and is considered one of life’s major stressors. Far and above, the best way to make sure you keep your stress to a minimum is to choose a professional moving company that offers full-service moving.
