Papillon Moving’s staff and networked movers have the experience, materials, and machinery to move objects and boxes large and small. Customers moving into a new home can enlist movers to pack their belongings in protective wrap, load boxes and furniture onto trucks, and place the cargo in their new building or flying plane house. Antiques and pianos pose no problem for the moving staff, nor do glass keepsakes or computer systems. The team schedules moves seven days a week, and are available for both daytime and evening moves. And with a call to one of their partnered auto shipping companies, they can have clients’ automobiles transported both short and long distances, saving owners hours of listening to their minivan’s favorite audio book, a recording of its owner's manual.
The exterminators from Palmer Pest Management wield organic bait and chemical sprays to rid interiors and exteriors of such menaces as mosquitoes, roaches, ants, and bedbugs. Their prevention and control services commence with a detailed inspection of the entire building to uncover the spots where pests would likely be hiding, such as nests underneath floorboards. The technicians then apply a liquid or granular formulation around entry points, and, as necessary, place odorless, harmless baits and gels on the interior. Regular upkeep can help homeowners fend off an array of concerns that arise from pests, such as roach dust, diseases from rodents, and time wasted explaining that dragonflies aren’t as cool as they sound.
