While moving what should your moving company do to protect your home? When it comes to moving day and the moving crew arrives at your home they need to make sure your house is well protected. They cover door jams, put down rug runners, and cover railings in order to protect your house. Then they focus on protecting your goods by covering your furniture in pads and skins so nothing gets damaged. Every piece of furniture comes out of the house padded and goes into the new house padded. In addition your moving company should also complete a pre-move and post move inspection of the residence to note preexisting damage and any new damage that occurs.
