Moving and Shipping Engineering by Ryu Pich
The big move. Moving takes a considerate amount of mental as well as physical energy. From a future Mechanical Engineer perspective, it is best to consider all the extremities and think about the system at hand. Considering the size of furniture and having the most efficient way of packaging and creating the most room without damaging products. It is all part of the process, just like a pulley system, to get things moving properly using less work. In a way, movers are like the professional engineers of their field too. They see the product, and in a moment, the action takes place as the plan has already developed in what seems like a blink of an eye. It is as if they developed the best system or way to move around the barriers to have the best success rate. Although the average person may think it is quite costly, it does not have to be, and what seems like basic common things, customers and professional engineers must weigh out the pros and cons.
Think of moving as an engine getting ready for a race. Not everyone is familiar with how an engine works, but this analogy may help. Every engine takes some sort of fuel which can be considered as money. This fuel works with the injectors and spark plugs which can be seen as the prepping and planning part of moving. The car oil in a vehicle can be seen as the movers to help ease the tension and allow the pistons and the camshaft, which are the products that are packaged, to move nicely in the engine without any bad friction. Overall, without the oil, the engine will eventually lock up and will cease to create power for the vehicle to move. There are a bunch of other components of the car that help play a role in making a vehicle move, but it is seen as critical, like oil to an engine, that without the movers, it will take more strain on the customers to move by themselves.
In the end, it's all up to the customers to trust their movers to help package their things and believe that they are the engineers of their industry. They brainstorm, strategize, develop, and execute in what little time they have in a team setting to help protect the customer and their investments. As a professional engineer once said, "If an engineer messes up, someone could lose their life" which goes to show that engineers, movers, and shippers must be a master in their craft and take exceptional care of their customers and take pride, as well as be passionate about their work. To all customers reading, please have faith in your movers and shippers as if they were real professional engineers, that they will handle your furniture, electronics, and antiques with great care to the best of their ability. Save the time. Save the hassle. Save the stress. It will all be worth it, in the end, to come to a new home with all the valuable products in perfect condition.
