For furniture that requires special care or assembly, you should consider hiring white glove shipping services. This is the highest level of furniture shipping service. White glove movers pick up, move, deliver, and assemble your furniture inside your home.
When should I choose white glove moving vs. freight?
There are several reasons why white glove shipping can be the right choice for moving your furniture. White glove transport services may be more expensive, but they minimize the hassle of moving large pieces of furniture. You are not responsible for crating, loading, or unloading your furniture.
White glove moving is perfect for shipping:
- Valuable antiques
- Furniture that requires assembly
- Pieces that are too heavy or large for you to move yourself
What to expect from white glove movers
White glove services offer door-to-door service. This means that at least two white glove movers will arrive to pick up your furniture, which will be loaded into a van or truck. Your furniture will be driven directly to its destination, where your white glove transporters will unload your furniture, move it into your home, handle any assembly, and place it exactly where you like. Some white glove services will even offer suggestions on how to arrange your furniture in your home.
