Not sure what qualities should stand out in a mover? Keep reading on to learn more from the experts of the industry.

Hiring Professional Movers

Hiring a skilled mover nearby your property in Chico is very wise. Local moving companies will have familiarity with the region which will come as an advantage. So make sure that you look for moving companies nearby as we had previously mentioned. But aside from looking into movers local to you, make sure they also carry the proper characteristics. This will assure that the movers are trustworthy and worthy of hiring.

Look for These Traits in a Local Mover

  • To be considered as a trustworthy prospect in the moving industry, a mover must be licensed through the state. To acquire a license they must abide by the regulations of the USDOT and FMCSA.
  • To maintain a license from the state as a mover, a certain amount of insurance protection must be given to each customer.
  • Moving companies should have amiable, supportive customer service representatives answering phones during business hours.
  • The mover you employ must be capable of handling your type of relocation. They will need the proper equipment and gear as well as trained, experienced help.
  • It’s crucial that the moving companies you are considering maintain a positive reputation. Go to the Better Business Bureau’s website or other review sites to read the feedback others had left regarding their experiences.

When you find movers with the right characteristics, write down some details about each one and include their contact info. This will make it easy to contrast what you’ve just learned and compare all the movers until you decide upon one to hire. It is recommended that you book your relocation with the mover at least a few months before you’d like your move to be underway. This gives everyone including yourself, enough time to prepare.

The Cost of Moving

The cost of your relocation is affected by a lot of matters. Actually, there are so many things that will determine the cost of your move that most moving companies cannot give a customer a total until later into the relocation process. It is because of this that you will find that many moving companies give their customers the opportunity to receive a free, quick quote.

These quick estimates are non-binding and only serve to give you somewhat of an idea of how much your relocation might cost through the mover that you got the quote from. Nonetheless, gathering these quotes from prospective movers is wise since you can use it with your other notes to compare the movers in your area. Once you have found a moving company to go through, you can start saving up money based on the quote so you have enough to pay for your moving services in the end.

How to Receive Your Non-Binding Quote

It’s common for movers to offer fast, non-restricting quotes by either phone or through the use of an online moving services calculator. Either way works just fine and both are quite quick. However, we believe that calling in to speak with a rep for the mover is the absolute most efficient way to go about getting quoted. Calling in will give you plenty of opportunities to ask questions, have concerns addressed, and even allow you to provide further details regarding your relocation out of Chico so that the mover can calculate the closest possible quote. This call shouldn’t take longer than 10-15 minutes or so and will definitely provide you with more insight about the mover including how friendly and capable their customer service reps are.

Some people don’t wish to contact moving companies by phone in fear that they might get hassled. If this is the case, simply fill out the form for the moving service calculator. Fill out the best you can and submit it. Once submitted, you will receive your quote via email within moments. Receiving your quote this way obviously doesn’t give you the chance to ask questions or have any of your concerns tended to.

Preparing for a Move

There is no better way to lend a hand in the relocation process than by preparing for moving day. Since a majority of your responsibilities are off-loaded onto the professionals at this time, you should spend some of your time getting ready for relocation. Helping out in this way keeps everyone involved safer and even further protects the condition of your property too. Here is how you can prepare sufficiently…

  • Have someone pick up the dog, cats and kids on moving day so that they are not around when the moving experts come into the home to load your property onto the truck.
  • Go through your home and pick up any debris, clutter or mess that could cause for someone to trip or get hurt as they maneuver through your home on moving day.
  • Have an adequate parking space for the moving truck to park. Try to get a space as close to your home as possible.
  • Make sure everything is packed according to the mover’s regulations. This typically means that everything must be secured in boxes and marked with the room the box is to be placed in.
