Comparative Summary

Maintaining customer satisfaction is a crucial aspect of any business, but it’s even more important for moving companies that have earned the prestigious Diamond Certified award. For Larro’s Moving Services, the key to keeping customers happy is simple: go out of its way to provide them with first-rate service, regardless of the situation. “We always go the extra mile for our customers,” affirms owner Ricardo Larromana. “Whether they want us to move the same items multiple times or need us to accommodate their schedules, we do it with a smile.”

The company has the in-house capabilities to handle every step of its customers’ moves (including junk removal and furniture assembly/reassembly), and it’s available seven days a week for their convenience.

Unlike moving companies that lack flexibility and make their customers compromise on certain aspects of their moving projects as a result, Larro’s Moving Services does its best to oblige its customers’ wishes. “We try to accommodate any special requests our customers may have,” says Mr. Larromana. “If there’s anything we can’t provide, we’ll put them in touch with someone who can.

Industry Info

Preparation is the key to any successful moving project.

Any time you waste during a moving project translates to wasted money, so the more you’re able to prepare beforehand, the easier your move will be. Consider the following preparation tips:

Go easy on the bubble wrap. When packing boxes, you can speed up the process by using newspaper instead of bubble wrap or packing peanuts. Some people feel safer when they bubble wrap everything, but it should be reserved for fragile items only. Not only is newspaper easier to work with than bubble wrap, it’s also less expensive and takes up less space in a box.

Use a better box. It’s important to use strong boxes with plenty of tape to ensure they don’t collapse in transit. However, an even better alternative to cardboard boxes are stackable plastic storage bins. They conveniently stack upon each other and they’re low-maintenance (no tape needed), sturdy, and reusable.

Prepare fragile items. Remove light bulbs from lamps so they don’t shatter from the vibration of the moving truck. Also, smaller lamps and lamp shades tend to be very fragile, so box them up instead of keeping them out with standing lamps. Tightly wrap framed pictures in blankets and ask if your mover has a special rack for transporting them.

Consider the location. If you live in an urban setting, you might need to reserve a loading dock (particularly if it’s a high-rise building) or procure a street parking permit for the day. Remember, these details are your responsibility, not the moving company’s. To obtain a parking permit, you can either go to your local police station or visit the city’s website. Parking permits may not be cheap, but they’re less expensive than a parking ticket or rescheduling your entire move. Other factors that might come into play in an urban area are road closures for maintenance or street fairs, so do some preliminary research to make sure nothing is going to cause a delay on the day of your move.

Ricardo Larromana: From Scratch to Success

By James Florence, Diamond Certified Resource Reporter

SAN FRANCISCO — Ricardo Larromana had been a professional mover for the better part of a decade when he decided to start his own business from scratch. “I started out working for a major moving company in 2007,” he recounts. “After about seven years there, I wanted to do my own thing, so I bought a truck, hired a helper, and began doing hauling and internal moves. Over time, I started getting calls for bigger moving jobs, and the more jobs we did, the more business picked up. Today, just a few years later, we’re a full-service moving company with a four-truck fleet.”

Today, as owner of Larro’s Moving Services, Ricardo says he appreciates the opportunity to be part of his customers’ major life transitions. “When someone moves, it’s often because they’re transitioning to another phase of their life, whether that’s upgrading to a bigger home or relocating for a new job. It’s very rewarding to help a customer take that next step.”

Originally from El Salvador, Ricardo resides today in San Francisco, where he appreciates the quality of life and work. “I’ve lived in the city for many years now, and it has never occurred to me to move anywhere else. I think it’s a good fit for me and my company, so I’m happy to be here.”

Outside of work, Ricardo’s favorite pastime is seeing new places, both close to home and abroad. “I enjoy getting out and discovering new spots in San Francisco,” he details. “There’s so much to do here and it’s always changing, so it’s fun to see what’s new. Also, I like to travel to new places, whether within the United States or elsewhere in the world. For example, during the past year, I visited Columbia and Seattle, Washington.”

In regard to his professional career, Ricardo espouses the value of two crucial qualities. “The two main things we focus on at Larro’s Moving are friendliness and professionalism,” he explains. “On one hand, we want to perform the job in a professional manner; on the other, we want to be there for the customer and make the process as pleasant as possible. By balancing these two aspects, we’re able to give each customer a great experience.”

Ask Me Anything!

Q: What’s your favorite sports team?
A: The San Francisco 49ers.

Q: If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
A: Greece.

Q: What’s your favorite TV show?
A: “Breaking Bad.”

Q: If you could time travel, would you go to the past or the future?
A: The future—I’d like to see how moving companies do things 50 years from now.

Q: Do you collect anything?
A: Antique dollar bills.

  • How to Pack Kitchen Items for Moving

    SAN FRANCISCO — From delicate dishes to sharp knives, kitchen items pose many challenges when packing for a move. Here’s how to pack a couple of common items:

    Plates

    First, place some bubble wrap at the bottom of the box—this will provide a cushion to protect the plates when it’s placed on the floor or in the moving truck. Take your first plate, place it on a piece of wrapping paper and fold the paper’s edges over the plate. When it’s fully wrapped, place the plate in the box. Repeat these steps with the rest of your plates, stacking each subsequent plate on top of the previous one. Once all your plates are packed, close, seal and label the box.

    Knives

    There are a couple of ways to go about packing kitchen knives. If they’re stored in a butcher block, the easiest way is to pack them as is by wrapping the entire block in tape. If done correctly, the tape should keep the knives in place. Place the block flat on its side in the box for safe transport. If your knives aren’t in a butcher block, wrap three or four at a time lengthwise in two to three layers of wrapping paper. Fold the top and bottom edges of the paper and lay the packed knives in the box.

  • Video: Packing Kitchen Items for a Move

    Complete Video Transcription:

    SAN FRANCISCO — Host, Sarah Rutan: From delicate dishes to sharp knives, kitchen items pose many challenges when packing for a move. Today we’re in San Francisco with Diamond Certified Expert Contributor Ricardo Larromana of Larro’s Moving Services to learn some helpful tips.

    Diamond Certified Expert Contributor, Ricardo Larromana: Today we are going to be talking about how to get ready and prepare your kitchen. We’re going to be talking about delicate stuff. So, what you need is your paper, your wrapping paper, of course, your tape, your Sharpie, and a Sharpie’s stuff to tie your tape in. Some bubble wrap to protect your items. What you want to do is grab the bubble wrap put it at the bottom of the box. Make sure it’s protected on the bottom.

    What you want to do, you want to grab your plates. Get one, two, three, four. Put it in. Once you’re all done with that, grab all your plates and just put them one on top of each other. With your sharp items such as knives or forks, stuff like that ─ what you want to do ─ you want to tape the whole thing, so nothing comes out. It’s there in the butcher block, of course.

    If you want to even protect it a little bit more, what you want to do is this – come around, put one on the top. And of course, you want to use a different box which I’ve got here. Grab your box, just lay them flat. They don’t have a butcher block in here. Put some of them like this. You’ve got two or three pieces of paper, come around, one fold on top, one at the bottom, and you just put it in. And that’s my tip for today.
