Managing Mishaps

Even the most careful of moves can result in that unfortunate situation: loss and damage of your property. When that happens, you might wonder how your home moving company will respond. When you’re moving with Victory Van, our response is a prompt, no-excuses effort to ensure you’re properly compensated for all your losses. Continuing reading this post and we'll give you pointers on some the elements of the a typical home move.

4 Tips to Manage the Moving Parts of a Home Move

The typical residential move involves a lot of moving parts:

  • 60 to 100 boxes
  • 1 to 3 trucks
  • Thousands of touch points during pickup and unloading
  • Hundreds or even thousands of miles of road travel
  • Days or weeks of shipping
  • For a commercial move, multiply all that by 10 or more

Given those numbers, it’s only natural that at some point, somewhere along the line, something might break. To help reduce risk of accidents consider following these 4 packing and moving tips from our team.
