Continental Van Lines

Continental Van Lines Bio

A moving company, removalist, or van line is a company that helps people and businesses relocate their goods from one place to another. Typically they use moving vans, but for international moves or where storage is required, they may use special containerised vans or shipping containers.

Continental Van Lines:It also involves finding or buying materials such as boxes, paper, tape and bubble wrap with which to pack boxable and/or fragile household goods for their protection and for compact carrying and stacking on moving day. Self service moving companies offer another viable option: The person moving buys space on one or more trailers or shipping containers. These large containers, often up to 53' feet in length, are driven by professionals to the new location. The renters of the trailer or truck often sell or lease accessories such as furniture blankets, tie down straps, packing material, dollies and ramps.

Moving furniture in and out of houses, especially older properties, presents challenges; in areas where there are many older properties, furniture movers may be adept at removing and reinstalling sash window panes. Most double bed bases can be split, folded or dismantled.

Continental Van Lines Info:

Embedded within the moving industry are the services of truck/trailer/moving equipment rental companies and companies selling moving supplies for people who want to pack and move themselves. Then they use a professional mover to load a moving van, drive it to the new residence and then unload it there. Rental companies usually offer some training information for DIY movers who will be using their rental trucks, trailers or equipment to relocate themselves.
Continental Van Lines Info
Household removals require careful wrapping and packing to avoid damage to furniture and effects, so many household policies do not cover goods in transit unless they are being packed, carried and unpacked by a professional remover. In the moving industry, when a customer packs and unpacks his own boxes it is referred to as PBO (packed by owner) and policies do not insure these goods[2]. On PBO moves it can become a point of huge contention between the mover and the customer as to who is at fault regarding damaged items within a box. Was it packed improperly by the customer or did the mover mishandle the box?

I wanted to let you know what an amazing job you guys did last week!
movers were absolutely outstanding and did a nice job on moving my daughter into her new apartment.
showed up on time and met my expectations with their precision at everything.
When they came, they started to work immediately and even wore plastic bags on shoes in our new house.
They were very careful while handling the fragile items.
They are highly professional and friendly guys

Very professional moving company that has employees with a lot of moving experience.
They were super professional, courteous, and took great care of both furniture and structures. walking through the first house and marking everything that was to be left behind. Nothing was damaged during my move,
especially not any of my personal relationships with family and friends.
I recommend them 100%, without hesitations.
