Why hire a moving company?
- Storage services: If you need to move and have no place to store some of your items, professional movers have warehouses for that purpose. Most movers have warehouses located across major cities in Michigan. You can store your items as you search for better housing. In case you also need to ship your items to a new town and move at a later date, they can store your items safely for the period agreed.
- Safety: Moving companies pack your items in corrugated boxes and label them appropriately. Delicate items are wrapped with bubble wrap or soft linen while LED screens and glassware are packed in anti-static peanut or clothing. The items are transported in air cushioned carriers while strapped to the walls or the ceiling. Movers such as A-1 Auto Transport use professional drivers who can safely navigate extreme weather and rough roads. They are aided by real-time satellite technology which reduces the chances of accidents.

How to hire the most reliable mover in Ann Arbor
Use suggestions from friends and family. According to their experience at the hands of a mover, they can offer solid recommendations. Ensure they have checked your items and know the type of move you require.
Consider a moving company that’s a member of the American Movers and Storage Association. The members are subjected to regular inspections to ensure they provide superb services. They have to abide by a professional code of ethics and use the association’s arbitration programme to deal with consumer complaints.
Verify the company’s assessment and consumer complaints at the Better Business Bureau. The organization allows customers to review and rate moving companies according to their experiences. They also deal with the highest number of moving cases in the country. They accredit reliable movers and ensure they abide by the set rules and regulations. In case of disagreements, the organization acts as the mediator.
Ask for several quotations from different companies and make a comparison. Check how the company charges per hour used and according to weight of your items. Ensure they have stated the delivery time and place of your items. In case of delays, the company should also state who pays for the additional expenses.
Make your move successful
- Scale down your move before calling the company representative for a walk-through. Sell and donate items you don’t need to Goodwill or friends. It makes your move easier by reducing the time used to pack the items.
- Mark all moving items and ensure the company provides a comprehensive estimate. Ask all questions and moving tips from the expert.
- Cancel deliveries and subscriptions weeks in advance to avoid unnecessary expenses on moving day.
- Enlist friends to help with your move. Hire a baby sitter for the kids and pets to avoid inconveniences as you approach moving day.
- Begin packing from the room with rarely used items as you progress to everyday items. Move from one room to the next to avoid mixing up your items.
- Label all the boxes along the sides as you pack the items.
- Familiarize yourself with the new nighbourhood and amenities before moving. It helps you transition smoothly to the new premises.
