When you have an internal plumbing problem, you go to a medical professional. When you have a household plumbing problem, you hire a professional plumber. In other words, we all seek out specialists who are the best at what they do.

It’s a similar story in business. Manufacturers, for example, are best at making stuff. Retailers are best at marketing, merchandising, and sales. Professional movers, like Elephant Moving & Storage are best at logistics – moving office and household furnishings efficiently and carefully from Point A to Point B.

This is why some of the biggest names in retail rely on Elephant Moving & Storage in the Austin and Central Texas area for what the logistics industry calls, “white glove delivery service.

What Is A White Glove Delivery Service?

movers providing white glove delivery servicesWhen shipping or moving office or household furnishings a white glove delivery service ensures complete and total care of your items. This level of service typically includes:

  • packaging
  • moving
  • loading
  • unloading
  • disposal of debris and packing materials
  • inspections every step of the way

When you buy a large piece of furniture or a major appliance in a store or online, it must be delivered and often it must be assembled or installed in your home. And, often, as with mattresses, the item that’s being replaced, must be removed and taken to an appropriate recycling location.

This is way beyond curbside delivery and drop-offs. In many cases, the store or manufacturer requires that the appliance or furniture item be inspected, and if necessary, repaired before it is delivered to the customer. If it can’t be restored to the original condition, the item must be returned to the shipper.

Trust in Elephant Moving & Storage

Our professional, trained movers have years of experience doing all this. This is why we’re able to offer white-glove delivery services in addition to our residential and commercial moving services.

We’re white glove moving specialists, and darn proud of it!

Are you moving locally in the Austin area? Elephant Moving & Storage is pleased to announce our new plastic moving crates program. It’s a cheaper and more environmentally friendly approach to packing than the traditional cardboard box route!

Save Money With Plastic Moving Crates

Our plastic crates allow you to pack up your whole house without spending a fortune on cardboard boxes or wasting tons of time scrounging for free used boxes around town. The plastic crates can be rented in groups of 25 for a flat price that includes 2 full weeks (14 days) – this price includes delivery and pickup.

Unexpected Moving Delay? Don’t Worry!

You can add an extra week for cheap! There is a small additional charge if we have to carry the crates upstairs, enter an elevator or load them into your place, not just the garage.

Add some packing paper or bubble wrap for your fragile items and/or wardrobe box rentals for your hanging clothes and you are ready to pack up your place.

The best part…

you won’t be drowning in a sea of cardboard once you unpack! Clean, efficient and environmentally responsible – what could be better?!

Depending on the size of your move there may even be a free or discount crate offer that applies to your move!

Call us today for more information and stay tuned for additions to our website for ordering crates and learning more about this convenient and earth-friendly program.

Our Baby Grand Piano Moving Process

First, the crew takes off the legs. Once the legs have been removed the crew wraps the piano body, first in soft fabric pads and/or foam to preserve the high gloss finish, then in heavy-duty moving pads to add an extra layer of padding.

The fully padded and wrapped piano is then strapped to a piano board and carefully maneuvered outside and into the truck, where it is strapped securely to the side of the truck.

A short drive across town and the piano is carefully unloaded, unwrapped and reassembled!
