BOULDER – The best way to reduce the extreme stress of moving? Partner with a reliable, trustworthy and time-tested moving company.
“Moving is one of the most stressful things in people’s lives,” said Glen Taylor, co-owner of Taylor Moving and Storage LLC in Boulder. “You have people going into your home and picking up everything you own. This is why we at Taylor Moving consider the trust factor so important.”
Indeed, Taylor Moving and Storage “has built the business on trust,” Taylor said, vaulting from one moving truck and a couple of employees in 1997 to 15 trucks and 35 employees today. Boulder County’s only moving company to consistently earn repeat Boulder County Gold, Best of Boulder and Longmont Readers’ Choice awards, Taylor Moving and Storage secures customers’ confidence and trust from the first free quote to the final furniture installation.
“We go out of our way to make people feel at ease,” said Taylor, who started the company with Leah Sprague more than 20 years ago. “My name is on those trucks, and our reputation is on the line. I’ve been in Boulder since I was a kid, and I love that it still has that small town feel. We want to be known around here for superior service.”
Taylor continued, “We run our company like a family, and a lot of our guys have been with the company since the beginning. We have a really great group of people who work for us.”
Local to international moves from a hometown mover
Taylor Moving, with hubs in Boulder and Longmont, features residential and commercial packing, moving and storage services. “We do whatever it takes to serve the customer,” Taylor said. “We had one guy on Pearl Street who wanted his elliptical on the roof so he could look at the Flatirons while he worked out. We brought in a crane and got it done.”
Taylor Moving and Storage counts satisfied customers from Boulder to Fort Collins, Longmont to Lyons and Louisville to Golden “and everything in between,” Taylor said. As an agent with National Van Lines, Taylor Moving transports belongings throughout the United States and internationally.
Casey Hofmann, chief financial officer at Spectralink, is among Taylor’s happy customers. She recalled, “I’ve used Taylor Moving quite a few times, both personally as well as for my business, and highly recommend. Their movers have always been professional, friendly, efficient, accommodating and easy to work with. They are very careful with your items as if they were their own and eliminated all the stress that is associated with moving. They have always exceeded my expectations.”
For the do-it-yourself mover, Taylor Moving and Storage is an authorized Budget Truck dealer. “We can rent you a truck for your local or one-way move and even help load or unload it,” Taylor said.
Unlike many moving companies, Taylor Moving details the total price upfront. “We have no hidden charges for gas, mileage or truck fees, just a simple all-inclusive hourly rate,” he said. “All of our moves include the truck and our professional moving equipment, including wardrobes, padding and protective wrap for your belongings. Our professional movers will also do any necessary disassembly and reassembly and place everything in your home where you request it.” Local moves include free full-coverage insurance.
Efficient, meticulous packing services
Since the hassle of moving is packing as much as the actual move, hiring packing specialists from Taylor Moving eliminates stress, work and worry. Packers are trained to pack everything from dishware to heirlooms with meticulous care, and customers select from full or partial packing and unpacking services.
Taylor explained, “Our moving crew are experts in packing to protect your belongings. No matter how fragile, our movers can protect it.” Taylor Moving utilizes specially designed boxes to keep belongings orderly and safe. “We can collect all of your hanging items, neatly pack them in our convenient wardrobe boxes and hang them in your new home,” he said.
“If you’d prefer to handle some of the packing yourself but want us to handle certain items or rooms, you simply tell us what you want packed,” he added. “We’ll supply the boxes you need and help you pack whatever you please.” Taylor Moving sells packing supplies at low cost.
Moreover, Taylor Moving is eager to meet customers’ needs. “Our staff will do our best to accommodate your schedule for your convenience,” Taylor said. “We are respectful of rules within housing communities and willing to make multiple stops during the move to pick up items.”
Climate-controlled, safe storage
For clients between moves, Taylor Moving offers a 15,000-square feet climate-controlled storage facility in Longmont. “We are dedicated to providing one of the largest private storage facilities in the Boulder area, perfect for when you want the peace of mind of knowing your items will be safe and secure,” Taylor said. “We have storage of all sizes to accommodate your belongings, from one piece to your whole home.” Month-to-month payment options are available for storage.
“While our top priority is to protect your belongings, we also pride ourselves on great, personal customer service and outstanding client relations,” said Taylor,
whose business is numbered with the Better Business Bureau and Angie’s List.
Green, community-focused moves
Taylor Moving’s commitment to the community extends beyond house or truck. “Our green trucks are a reminder that we try to be green in all we do,” Taylor said. The company works with Boulder’s recycling facilities to reuse and recycle packing supplies and sells used boxes. To further serve the community, Taylor Moving donates services to the local Humane Society and the Boulder organization Moving Against Sexual Assault (MESA), among other local nonprofits.
Whether moving across town or across the country, customers can expect a stress-free, smooth moving experience from Taylor Moving and Storage.
