No matter where you are moving or how much you have to move, there’s always this negative stigma on the actual process of moving. Honestly, moving is tiring and if you aren’t used to it or you aren’t prepared, you can run into some real issues. At All Points Moving & Storage, we want your move to go as smoothly as possible. If you plan on relocating to a new location, whether it’s down the street or across the country, there are key things you need to know. Here are some vital tips and especially what not to do when hiring movers.
Tips When Hiring a Professional Moving Company
- Do Not Hire on a Whim – It’s so important that with any move you make, big or small, you hire a company that has documented experience. In other words, the “good deal” instant quote online or your friend’s neighbor is probably not a good deal. Good, experienced movers can mean the difference between broken heirlooms or a successful move. Do your research and know the company’s background before you trust them with your belongings. After all, they are moving your most precious items!
- Do Not Choose a Moving Company Based on Their Prices Alone – Yes, moving expenses can add up but does it replace the value of items that could be lost, stolen, or damaged? Additionally, is the most expensive mover really necessary? Getting a few different quotes from other companies never hurts. Often times, you can get a better feel for their quality of care and customer service just by seeing how they handle their moving quotes. Getting a feel for the company and their prices will help you determine the best solution for you.
- Do Not Choose a Company Without Meeting Them First – To piggyback on points previously made, at the end of the day, it’s all about the quality of care that you are going to receive. For example, if someone estimates a cost over the internet or phone for you, it’s likely they are scamming you or just extremely inexperienced. A good moving company will take the time to listen to your needs, visit your location and plan out an estimate for the cost of a move like yours, and then offer you several options to accommodate your move. This is often found with moving companies that have experience in all types of moves and a deeper understanding of the task at hand.
