Preserving your floors with professional care

Preserving your floors with professional care

Protecting floors during the moving process is our solemn duty! Our moving experts understand that your floors are an integral part of your home. That is why we have skilled movers with the right equipment and knowledge to provide meticulous floor protection services.

Zip Moving and Storage only uses quality materials, and we are incredibly careful about your home.

How we protect your floors

  1. It all begins with a detailed evaluation of your unique flooring type and conditions. Once we have identified the specific type of flooring you have, movers can carefully select the most convenient and effective protective measures tailored to the unique requirements.

  2. Evaluate the entire process. One of the key aspects we consider is the sensitivity of materials. That’s why a professional moving crew should thoroughly assess your floors before the moving process begins.

  3. Gather all the right moving equipment and protection. Our moving company only uses quality materials. We invest in high-quality packing materials and utilize protective paddings to ensure the safety and security of your possessions.

Safeguarding your surfaces

Moving furniture can be incredibly tough and demanding, particularly when handling appliances like washing machines or refrigerators. Without the right expertise, practice, and attention to detail, it’s too easy to unintentionally cause damage or scratches to your precious floors during the moving process.

Our expert and skilled movers at Zip Moving and Storage will use a range of protective solutions for your flooring. Some of them include:

  • Floor protection – These coverings create a strong barrier, ensuring your floors remain unscathed amidst the bustling movement of heavy furniture and the constant flow of foot traffic.
  • Furniture blankets – These thick blankets are perfect for extra protection of your floors and furniture pieces. Our team will wrap your items and prevent any potential floor damage.
  • Floor mats – Placing floor mats can be extremely helpful. This is a great way to protect your floors and let mats absorb dirt and moisture.
