Record snowfall this winter is bringing relief to Utah after years of drought. However, it is also causing flooding problems. On January 10th, over 30 homeowners in Draper spent the night fighting rising water levels in their basements. While residents worked to remove the water, Utah’s Moving and Storage Company stepped up to help move furniture and other belongings out of harm’s way.
Headquartered in Orem, UT, Utah’s Moving and Storage Company helps Utahns throughout the state with long-distance and cross-country movies. They strive to support the community by making moving simpler and less stressful. Because their crews are trained professional movers and packers, they are uniquely qualified to quickly and efficiently move heavy or awkward items and carefully pack up valuables for safekeeping. Their skill and professionalism help put customers at ease during the moving process.
Sending their crews in to help homeowners in Draper was a natural extension of the way Utah’s Moving and Storage Company does business. Megan Martin, Marketing Manager for the company, had this to say about their response. “When we heard about the flooded homes in Draper, we immediately knew that we had the right skills and personnel to help. By acting quickly, we were able to alleviate some of the burden and worry for these families simply by doing what we do best — relocating furniture to upper floors and boxing up games and toys, blankets, and bedding. We were pleased to give back to our community.”
Draper City offered help in the form of sandbags and roll-off dumpsters to dispose of soggy carpet. Community members worked through the night, helping each other install sump pumps to control the rising water coming up from the ground below. However, the concern for many residents remained — how could they save as much of their furniture and possessions as possible?
“This year, we have had much more snow than normal, which will help fill our reservoirs. But, we don’t want it filling our basements,” remarked Martin. “Dealing with the water damage that can occur with such rapidly rising water levels requires a quick response and a lot of helping hands. As one of the top moving companies in Utah, we were ready and able to respond to this completely unexpected situation and be the hands to help move sofas, entertainment centers, and beds to drier areas of the home.”
