Hiring Professional Movers

Getting ready to hire qualified movers means you’ll have to conduct some Internet research first. After submitting “cheap movers near me” into the search engine, you should be presented with Web pages of different moving companies. Go through the websites of the movers closest to you. Make sure that they carry any of the attributes a professional moving company should have including…

  • Your mover should have the proper credentials including approval from the FMCSA, the BBB and the USDOT. Compliance with these agencies also means that the mover has been issued a license from the State of California.
  • Your mover should have a vast variety of moving and storage services. If not, they must at least have the ability to tend to your type of relocation even if it means they must tailor a plan better suited for you.
  • A licensed mover must provide each customer with a certain amount of insurance coverage. The amount of protection that the mover must provide is determined by the state. If you want full coverage on your belongings during the relocation process, ask the mover if they offer supplementary insurance packages.
  • You should find it easy to get in contact with the movers during business hours. The representatives answering the phones should always remain helpful, friendly and knowledgeable.

Once you have found a few moving companies with the right qualifications, write down their contact information and any other facts or data you appreciated about them. Once you a few movers to select from, call each one to gather more info and to receive a free, quick quote. Although you shouldn’t base your decision off the rates you’re presented with, collecting quotes is a great way to compare the movers with proven history and reliability. Try your best to book with a moving company a couple of months in advance if you can.

The Cost of Moving

What you pay out for moving services is dependent on a lot of things. Actually, there are so many things that affect the cost throughout the moving process that not all movers have the ability to give out honest totals until they have fulfilled the relocations for their customers. Because they can’t give you an honest total right away, most movers will give out fast, free estimates. These non-binding quotes are usually given out in one of two ways, by an online moving service calculator or over the phone.

We’d like to suggest that you call in to receive a quote. By calling in you are able to give the representative more detail so that they can calculate a more precise quote for you even if it isn’t a binding estimate. You will also have the freedom to ask the moving company questions which will ultimately make it easier for you to decide on a mover for hire.

If you don’t prefer to call in for an estimate, you can make use of the mover’s online calculator. Receiving your quote through this online tool is a little quicker than calling in but it doesn’t make it easy to provide them with details. However, once you submit the information requested on the online form, you can expect to get your quote by email within just a few minutes or so.

It doesn’t matter how you go about getting a quote but make sure you get one from each moving company with potential. Use these quotes with your other notes to compare all the movers you’ve written down information for. Once you have settled on a mover, start saving up for the cost of relocation based on the estimate you received.

Preparing for a Move

Although a lot of the relocation obligations will be left to the moving company, it is helpful and wise to prepare for the big day. Doing this keeps everyone (even the professionals) and everything (your stuff) safer while ensuring the steady pace of the relocation process. Here is what you can do to help out…

  • If you decided not to let the professionals pack up your belongings, start this process at least a few months ahead of schedule. Everything must be ready to go once the mover arrives. Make sure all boxes are secured with tape and labeled accordingly.
  • Go through your home to pick up and fix anything that could present potential dangers to your stuff or the moving pros as they enter your home to collect your things for loading.
  • Individuals with kids and pets should find someone to watch them outside of the home on moving day.
  • There should be an available parking spot for the moving truck.
