Thinking About Hitching a Ride?


Wouldn’t it be fun? There’s the big, gleaming van driven up to the curb by your chosen Irvine moving company. It’s loaded with (or soon will be loaded with) a carefully-selected assortment of your finest personal belongings. Cargo space has been adequately filled. But there’s that big spacious cab with room for one more. Why let that space go to waste?  So you think: Why couldn’t I ride up there with the Irvine movers who are assisting me? Uh-uh. Don’t even think along these lines. Not even for a second. Because it just won’t happen. When traveling to your new home, you can’t hitch a ride with the moving crew. Whether you fly, drive, skateboard, or row, you’ll absolutely need your own means of transportation when leaving the old place behind. This is not because Irvine moving companies demand their privacy and space. And it’s not because they have anti-social tendencies. The reason people can’t travel alongside the crew has to do with liability. Irvine movers simply aren’t set up to take responsibility for the safety of customers. Which is why the cab is forbidden territory to everyone but the crew. Our scope of responsibility pretty much is limited to personal belongings. That we can protect with supreme reliability. As for passengers, no. It can’t be done. We’re simply not insured for that kind of thing.

Neither can Irvine movers take responsibility for the transportation of pets. Again, the same principle applies. There are safety issues we just aren’t prepared to cover. And that goes for the cargo area, as well. No dogs, cats, parakeets, or goldfish may grab a passenger seat in there. Even if they’re a model of good behavior.
