The Right Moves

NO NEED TO STRESS OVER THE PACKING, SCHLEPPING, AND HEAVY LIFTING WHEN A RELOCATION FIRM CAN DO IT FOR YOU by jen renzi

If anything could blunt the euphoria of relocating to your dream home, it’s the tedium of moving day: packing your belongings into cardboard boxes and wondering in horror where all that stuff came from, where it will go, and how it will get there. Coming to terms with one’s material existence is enough to induce a nervous breakdown. But there is a remedy—namely, Dallas-based relocation firm Delivery Limited. “Please don’t call us movers,”says the company’s director of client relations. “We’re a full-service, white-glove operation. We pack up everything from your chandeliers to your socks, take it to the new residence, and set it up: we lay rugs, hang artwork, even make the beds. Clients don’t have to lift a finger.” (Just their checkbooks.) Delivery Limited is a favorite of architects and decorators throughout the country, including New York interior designer Charlotte Moss (who recently hired the company to install this 20,000 square-foot home for a client in Colorado). The unflappable staff doesn’t bat an eyelash when asked to transport marble statuary, pianos, oversized Venetian chandeliers, or solid oak armoires. “Our clients trust us completely with their belongings,” the client relations director says. “The most important qualification for this job is discretion.” And biceps.
