Specialized moving companies: experts who can move almost anything

It's time to move into your new home and you've decided to forgo professional movers to save money. Nevertheless, there are some things that your big brother can’t (and shouldn’t) move with his truck.

The most common difficult-to-move items

Classic! A piano is not only extremely heavy and oversized, but it is a precious instrument of great value, both sentimental and monetary.

  • If you must move a piano, do not entrust it to anyone without piano moving experience.
  • There are methods and equipment that only a specialized moving company can provide.

Hot tub spa
When selling your house, you can choose to sell the spa to the new owners or take it with you when you go.

  • Did you know there are companies specialized in relocating and re-installing hot tub spas? It might be worth bringing your spa with you, especially if you can do it with minimum hassle.

Wine cellar
Moving beautiful and valuable bottles of wine... Good grief! A wine collection so unique and fragile, how can you successfully move it without breaking anything?

  • Fear not, wine collection transport companies specialize in this type of move and do it all the time. Temperature, light and movement are variables that damage wine bottles.
  • Your wine cellar collection will be handled with care by experienced professionals who are well-equipped and heavily insured.

It can be difficult to imagine moving a large aquarium with exotic fish. It’s enough to want to postpone the idea of moving altogether.

  • When the time comes, be brave and get organized. Educate yourself about practices and procedures, and then hire a trained professional who knows what to do.

Other specialized moving services

There is a range of other specialized moving services that may surprise you. Here are a select few:

  • Works of art and priceless antiques
  • Pool tables
  • Safes
  • Firearms
  • Cars
  • Playgrounds

Whatever precious, unique or oversized item you have, no matter where you’re going, you can be sure there’s a moving company specialized to help you ensure your cherished belongings arrive in one piece and on time.

A last piece of advice

Be organized and book everything early enough to ensure that the company is available on the day you need them.

  • Specialized moving companies usually have a full calendar, and it may be extremely difficult to find help at the last minute during their busy season.
  • Depending on the nature of the move, there may be several steps and procedures involved, especially for international moves.

With the right movers, equipment and expertise, virtually anything unwieldy can be successfully moved—except maybe a mountain!
