Harrington Moving & Storage Improves Antique Moving Method

Local New Jersey moving and storage company, Harrington Moving & Storage, recently announced its improved antique moving service that transports fragile items in a safe and secure manner so they arrive at their new destination scratch free.

Harrington Moving has been transporting fragile antiques since the company first formed over a decade ago, yet recently Harrington Movers improved their antique moving technique to further ensure customers’ belongings arrive in one piece, and in top condition.

“I have been evaluating our methods of transporting porcelain, fragile heirlooms, furniture – items that have been collected and kept in top form over the years. These items have both an emotional and monetary value that for the most part is hard to replace,” said founder of Harrington Moving, Jeff Harrington. “After some thorough tests and trial-and-error we were able to modernize our method of moving antiques.”

Harrington Moving cares about the safety of its customers’ belongings, yet when it comes to relocating fragile porcelains, family heirlooms, valuable antiques and other delicate items, Harrington Movers must approach the move with additional care.

The advanced antique moving service includes dispatching to the moving site experienced Harrington Movers who are knowledgeable about how each piece should be prepared and packed. Harrington Mover employees use packing materials that ensure maximum protection. These materials include double-and triple-walled cartons, stretch/cushioning wraps, packing tape, fine tissue and kraft paper.

Harrington Movers then load the fragile items into wooden crates that are suited for delicate pieces such as crystal chandeliers, porcelain items, and other valuables. Harrington Mover employees then transport the crates onto specialized moving carts that are eventually delivered to the new destination. Throughout the entire improved process, Harrington Moving ensures all fragile items remain scratch free and in one piece.

“Harrington Moving does all it can to ensure the items reach the destination in perfect condition,” Harrington said.

In a recent example, Harrington Moving & Storage displayed its improved antique moving service to a Maplewood antique store owner who called on Harrington to move his shop across town.

“It was an intricate project because Steven had hundreds of antiques lying around his crowded store. Harrington Movers had to display added patience and care when packing his belongings,” Harrington said.

Harrington Movers implemented the new and improved antique moving service instructions. Within one day the movers packed the store’s contents and relocated the shop to its new destination. All the items were safely moved and unpacked. Within no time the shop owner was able to run his business as usual.

Harrington Moving Initiates Advanced Employee Screening

Leading moving and storage enterprise, Harrington Moving & Storage, uses an advanced employee screening method to ensure the NJ moving company hires the best.

Jeff Harrington, owner of Harrington Moving & Storage, recently decided to implement a new employee screening method to properly review candidates’ backgrounds prior to hiring them.

Harrington Movers all undergo extensive background checks to ensure Harrington Moving continues to provide stellar service. The screening method sweeps through a candidate’s background and results in a thorough, inclusive report.

The background check includes searching through criminal records, arrest records, sex offender records, proof of citizenship records, immigration status records, legal working status records, litigation records, driving and vehicle records, drug tests, education records, employment records, and additional reports.

Harrington Moving decided to implement the screening process to ensure its employees will maintain the company’s reputable image. In addition to the pre-hiring method, Harrington recently decided to implement a new educational training tool to teach his Harrington Moving employees.

Harrington discovered while participating in the International Association of Movers 49th Annual Meeting held in Denver, Colorado, a package of six videos entitled the “Art of Packing,” which painstakingly describe to the smallest detail the act of packing and unpacking.

The videos, which take about six hours to complete, are part of Harrington’s recent change of employee qualification testing. All Harrington Moving & Storage employees must watch the videos and complete a written exam. They must answer correctly all 50 questions in order to pass the test. If the employees pass the test, they receive a new Harrington Moving & Storage jersey, colored orange and navy blue.

“The screening method is to ensure Harrington Moving candidates are eligible to work for us, the video exam is to ensure they are good enough to wear the Harrington Moving & Storage jersey,” said Harrington. “We continuously strive to offer the best service, and for that we need the best employees.”

In addition to upholding the Harrington Moving reputation, current Harrington Movers work hard to remain active members and leaders in the New Jersey community. In the coming weeks, Harrington Movers will take time away from moving families and businesses to sponsor a ride and maintain a booth throughout the 11th Annual MayFest on Springfield Avenue Event, a street festival that attracts a large audience of locals and visitors.

“Harrington Movers like to get out and see our supportive customers face to face, a local street fair is a great way to reach out,” Harrington said. “Harrington Movers are top notch people, they are hard workers who like to give.”

Harrington Moving & Storage Collects Food for Donation

Harrington Moving & Storage, a leading moving enterprise, announces its food drive that will last throughout the summer months. Harrington Movers will collect non perishable canned foods from customers, at no charge, and deliver them to the local New Jersey food bank.

To combat the hunger issues facing local New Jersey residents, Harrington Moving & Storage has launched its summer food drive. The Harrington Moving food drive begins in the coming weeks and will last throughout the summer vacation.

“This food drive is a critical initiative to raise awareness of hunger in the New Jersey area,” said Jeff Harrington, founder of Harrington Movers.

In the coming weeks, hundreds of local New Jersey families will leave their day-to-day homes to vacation along the beach coastlines or in other relaxing resorts. Harrington realizes that many customers spend long amounts of time in these establishments, and over the course of their vacation accrue many non perishable canned foods they no longer need when they are ready to return to their original homes.

Harrington Moving offers to collect the food items, at no cost to the customer, and deliver them to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey. The Community FoodBank of New Jersey distributes 37 million pounds of food and groceries a year, ultimately serving 1,500 non-profit programs including 436 programs served by its Partner Distribution Organizations (PDOs). Through their combined efforts, the FoodBank assists 900,000 low-income people in 18 of New Jersey’s 21 counties.

“The Harrington food drive is going to really help out some people,” Harrington said. “Harrington Moving continuously strives to assist those who need a helping hand.”

Harrington said it’s “always terrible” to know anyone is facing hunger issues. It can be even more troubling to find out children are hungry because they “are the most helpless people.”

Food can be donated to Harrington Moving by contacting the moving and storage enterprise.
