Cheap Movers in Bethel
The act of moving is one that comes along with a whirlwind of emotions including the worry of cost. What most individuals don’t realize is that hiring professional movers is actually less expensive than conducting relocation on your own. That’s right. Hiring a moving company for their assistance is cost effective and affordable. Since moving companies already own all the right components to ensure a safe and timely move, you won’t be expected to go out and rent or buy all the tools and equipment you would otherwise need. The experts will handle almost every aspect of a move if it’s what you desire as the customer.
Hiring Professional Movers
There is a specific way that you should go about finding a mover. This includes using the Internet to search for all dependable, affordable moving companies nearby. Once you have searched for “cheap movers near me” and drawn up pages of results, carefully look through each mover’s information and website. As you do this, make sure they have the following qualities…
- They are licensed through the State of Alaska, registered with a USDOT number, and carry any other certifications given through regional and federal authorities.
- Licensed moving companies must also carry a certain percentage of insurance coverage for every customer.
- As a mover, they should have the exact services you need or a wide variety of services and features to consider purchasing.
- Customer service reps with friendly attitudes and the eagerness to assist you.
- They should offer binding and non-binding quotes, and not expect payment until the move has been completed.
- A positive reputation as shown through great reviews and high star ratings.
- They’ll have upgraded, modern equipment and technologies to ensure safe, time efficient moves.
When you look for the above qualities, you are certain to find a mover right for your relocation process. Just take the time to carefully go through all the learned information and compare all movers. Call each one for more info if you must. Sometimes it is hard to find the info you’re looking for online.
The Cost of Moving
Naturally, you’re probably concerned about the cost of moving with the help of professionals. Fortunately, you can relax. The cost of hiring a mover is reasonable enough for most people to afford. It is actually cheaper than carrying out the move on your own. However, to figure out the exact cost of your relocation before it has been carried through is relatively difficult depending on the moving company you chose to hire.
Most movers offer quick, non-binding estimates. These are rounded totals that don’t actually depict your final cost for services. Based on bits of data that you provide them with, they’ll come up with a fast estimate either over the phone or through an online calculator on their website. These estimates should only be used to help you compare moving companies as you decide whom to hire. Calling for a quote is the most personal way. It gives you the opportunity to ask questions and seek out more info about the company.
Binding quotes are more difficult to get than non-binding quotes. Some moving companies give the final cost at the end of the relocation process, while others will offer a binding estimate after they conduct an inspection of your home in Bethel, Alaska. During this appraisal they will collect certain date such as how many rooms there are in the home, how much stuff there is to move, what size trucks or trucks they will need for moving day, and how much time and labor it may take to complete the relocation. Then, when they combine the learned information with other specific details such as the current cost of fuel and the exact weight of your things, etc., they will be more capable of calculating a total on your moving services. This is when a binding agreement also referred to as a Bill of Lading is drawn up so that you can sign it and the move can be scheduled.

Preparing for a Move
Even though your skilled movers will have a majority of the move handled (depending on the services you chose), you will be obligated to prepare for the day they show up to move your stuff out. The preparation process is simple but it is also essential. Preparing for the movers will keep everyone safer and your relocation process running along smoothly. Here are some of the things you can do in preparation…
- Pick up your Bethel home so that there is nothing lying around in the way of the movers. They need to be able to access every room with furniture and boxes without tripping or fearing an accident.
- Make sure they have somewhere to park the moving truck near the entrance.
- Don’t allow kids or pets to be present when the movers arrive.
- Have all boxes packed properly and ready to go. They should also be clearly labeled as demanded by the moving company you hired.
- Gather all requested documents and have them ready for the movers.
