Reasons Why You Need To Hire Experienced Movers
You've signed all the paperwork, meet with the mortgage company and closed the deal. Congratulations on your new home! Now the packing begins.
Many new home owners or renters cringe at the idea of shelling out for professional moving services (http://www.ablemoversokc.com/services), but each year, people who go the "DIY", route with bargain solutions wind up paying much more for their move than they anticipated. Why? It's all because of the hidden costs of moving on the cheap. Hidden Truck Rental Fees
It's common for budget-conscious consumers to rent equipment to keep their moving costs down. However, rental companies are only inexpensive if you stay within mileage limits, replenish gasoline, and keep their property in pristine condition. You will be charged for every scratch and dent — maybe even the damage left by others if you don't properly document it prior to use. Need to make an extra trip? Fees. Move taking longer than expected? Fees. Did someone back into your rental? Big fees. Potential Damages
Aside from rental equipment damages, bargain basement moving services could leave you with serious repair bills. If you're considering hiring local students for a few bucks, be forewarned. They might save you money initially, but they won't have liability insurance, and they may not be able to replace high-dollar possessions. The low cost of inexperience is usually offset by repair bills and frustration. Y ..... >>Read More>>

Able Movers – Take the Stress out of Commercial Moves
Commercial moves are a breed all their own. They are completely different than residential moves because they usually involve expensive, heavy equipment that must be delicately cared for at every step. If you are moving to a new office building in the near future, you may be dreading the mere thought of the transfer. That's where we come in. With the help of Able Movers and the tips below, your commercial move will be as stress free as possible. We Do the Packing for You
Chances are you don't have time to pack up all of the items in your office. Most business owners are more focused on conducting business than putting things into boxes. We can do the packing for you so you don't have to worry about the safety of your belongings. We will wrap, box, and label everything you need to transport so you can stay focused on what really matters. We Work around Your Schedule
If you want to minimize the commotion in your office, we can work after normal business hours to complete your move for you.

Able Movers – Use the Summer to De-clutter Your House
Throughout the winter and spring months, you have been collecting items you either don't use anymore or no longer need. Rather than hoarding these belongings at your house, use the summer months as a chance to de-clutter your home and get it back to the way it needs to be. Here are some suggestions for your summer clean up that will make your home just a little more livable. Store What You Don't Need Right Now
If you have limited storage space in your home or garage, you might want to invest in a small storage unit. You can gather all of the items you don't need right now and have movers haul them to your unit for you. This is a good idea for winter clothes, ski equipment, snow blowers, and other items that don't get used in the summer months. When it comes time to bring those items back out, you can swap them for your pool supplies and other summer items. Donate What You Don't Need Anymore
If you don't plan on selling your furniture, clothing, toys, etc., consider donating it to a good cause. For instance, Habitat for Humanity will come pick up furniture items from you to use in the homes they build for the community. These houses are sold to low income families who may not have a chance to own their own home otherwise. If you have a large haul that you want to take to Goodwill, Ronald McDonald House, or somewhere else along those lines, give us a call and we'll take care of it for you.

No Surprises with Exact Moving Quotes
Able Moving Company offers fixed pricing – a service that is practically unheard of in the moving industry. Most Oklahoma City movers charge by the hour, which means that you have to pay for their efficiency. If you get a slow crew that doesn't do a good job, you're out extra money for no reason. Before you decide to work with a company like that, you need to see the benefits of exact moving quotes. You won't be surprised by a big bill ever again. Advantages of Fixed Price Moving Quotes
Here are some reasons why you may prefer exact moving prices over hourly rates:
Plan an accurate budget. Rather than setting aside the money you think it will cost for your move, you can save the precise amount you need.
Lose the stress with timing. You don't have to watch the clock with your movers because you don't pay for their time. They will work as efficiently as possible to get your move completed quickly.
Know you're getting a good deal. It is easy to get ripped off when you pay by the hour. With fixed pricing, all the risk lies on your movers.
Feel confident about your move. With a quote in hand, you won't have to worry about hearing any excuses for a bump in price. We assess the need for that ahead of time.
As you can see, having an exact moving quote can make your relocation experience much more enjoyable. That is what makes Able Movers the best moving company OKC has to offer. How to Get an Exact Moving Quo ..... >>Read More>>

Apartment Moving – Small Spaces, Big Work
Some people think that moving an apartment is easy because it involves fewer items than a home. This is very rarely the case because there are many other factors that come into play. The location of the apartment and the configuration of the complex can turn a simple move into a full-day project before you know it. Let's take a look at the reality of apartment moving (http:// www.ablemoversokc.com/services). Stairs
Most apartment moves involve stairs, which add a tremendous amount of time to the move. Every flight of stairs adds about an hour to the ordeal, depending on how high they are and how they are shaped. Even for apartments on the bottom floor, stairs can be a problem because they block areas of the walkway. Then the movers have to work their way around them. In the scorching heat of Oklahoma summers, stairs can easily drain the life out of the crew. Bends
If the stairs aren't a problem in an apartment, the bends are. Most apartments are designed to maximize space, so they have a lot of intricate hallways, bedroom shapes, and closets. As one of the oldest moving companies Oklahoma City has to offer, we have seen countless apartment complexes go up that are nearly impossible to get furniture in and out of. Sometimes this means we have to break furniture down to get it out of the house, which adds unexpected time to the move. All of these little details can make apartment moving a bit of a challenge.

The Do's and Don'ts of a Residential Move
Moving a house is much like moving an apartment or a business, but it is much more predictable and strategic. In the crowded streets of Oklahoma City, it's nice for us to be able to pull into a driveway, load up, and go. If you are undergoing a residential move in the next few weeks, there are some things you can do to make the process fast and easy. The more you help us, the better we can serve you. Here are some residential moving (http://www.ablemoversokc.com/ services) do's and don'ts you may want to think about. What to Do for a Residential Move
Reserve your appointment well in advance, especially if you're moving in May, late December, or August.
Use boxes to pack instead of bags. Boxes can be stacked on a dolly, making them much easier to move in large sets.
Have a plan for your new house so your movers know where to go with boxes and furniture.
Ask for a sufficient crew. We'll tell you how many people you should have for a project, but it's up to you to actually make that reservation.
Identify fragile boxes or items so they can be placed properly on the truck. What NOT to Do for a Residential Move
Forget to pick up your keys or transfer your utilities.
Wait to pack the day before the move.
Forget to take out the trash when you leave. You'll end up with a swarm of bugs the new residents have to take care of.
Block important pathways with boxes and furniture.
Be somewhere else when t ..... >>Read More>>

Key Points to Keep in Mind Before Before Calling an Oklahoma City Moving Company
Whether you’re looking to do a residential move, or a commercial move, there are a list of questions you should ask yourself so that you are sure to be well prepared in advance. Don’t wait until after you’ve chosen the Oklahoma City moving company you’ll be using to discover the answers to these key questions. You’re trusting these people with the possessions you’ve worked hard to obtain, find out as much as you can before choosing your movers in Oklahoma City. Can you schedule your Oklahoma City movers to come in mid-month
The majority of moving companies in Oklahoma City are busiest at the beginning and end of the month. Being able to schedule your move for the middle of the month allows you to have the best chance of getting a great time scheduled for your day.
Not only will you get a better time scheduled by your Oklahoma City movers mid-month, but supply and demand can affect pricing in this industry as much as any other. The labor of the employees is also a factor. The moving company you choose is going to employ humans, those who are at the end of a week of overtime days due to last minute month end add-ons are just plain going to be tired!
Another point to consider in regards to scheduling is to call at least a week in advance. Having a team that is scheduled properly, rather than rushed, will give you better service. Remember the last t ..... >>Read More>>
