Affordable Moving and Storage
The process of moving is one that goes along much easier with the help of a moving company. Fortunately, moving and storage services are often affordable and known for their cost efficiency. Finding a reliable yet low cost mover nearby shouldn’t be a problem for you. Go online to search for affordable moving and storage services nearest you and you’ll find that you have many options. Find a mover with great credentials and the moving services you’d like to take advantage of. Of course, you should compare several companies by assessing their history, qualities, credibility and rates before you decide on a mover.
Gathering Quotes for Comparison
Most moving and storage companies will provide their customers with online calculators. By submitting bits of information such as both location addresses and the amount of rooms you have to move, you can receive a fast estimate in just minutes without having to call in. Usually the quotes are sent to your email address to view. Online calculators aren’t known for their accuracy but they can help provide interested persons with a roundabout figure based on their moving service needs.
Another way to collect quotes is by calling the mover. A customer service rep will gladly provide you with a quote over the phone after you answer just a few questions. This tends to be a little more accurate and allows you to ask any questions you may have for the moving company.

Although neither online calculators or over the phone quotes are completely honest totals for the cost of your moving and storage solutions, they are close enough to use for comparison purposes. You can receive a true total once the movers come in to the home personally for assessment. The weight of your belongings will also affect your total. The weight is not known until your stuff is loaded onto the truck which is then weighed. The truck’s weight is then subtracted from the total weight so that the net weight is given. The net weight is total weight of your things. Most movers won’t charge for their services until the relocation is fulfilled.
Ask about Discounts and Promotions
Some movers will run promotions and sales especially during their off-seasons. A lot of them also offer discounts to those who qualify. Military men and women, veterans, seniors and students are some of the individuals who may qualify for such discounts. Bundling moving and storage services may also reduce the total cost for services. If you call in for quotes, it’s a great time to ask the movers what they have to offer and whether or not you qualify for discounts of any kind.
