Coeur d'Alene Cheap Service Movers
We all know that relocation is a stressful and a costly affair- especially for interstate and cross-country moves. The entire process will put your organizational skills to the test. We all want to get cheap moving services from top-rated commercial or residential moving companies. However, sometimes cheap can turn out to be the most expensive move. Be wary of movers who would lure you with low rates. Use of research methods will be your best arsenal when deciding to hire a full-service moving company. For all affordable relocation services in Idaho, Coeur d'Alene cheap movers stand to be your best bet.
Read through the following tips to avoid most common scams.
Beware of Telephone Quotes
A moving company that gives you a quote over the phone should raise a red flag. A professional mover will send an estimator to assess your belongings. He/she will approximate the space and weight of your household goods to give you an accurate cost estimate. More so, the estimate should be written and binding to ensure it does not change once they get to your home or office to begin your local or long distance move.
Phone estimates are barely based on guesses from people who are trying to lure you with the cheapest quote, knowing the estimate will change later. In most cases, this kind of movers will refuse to unload your furniture upon arrival until you part with the money they demand.
Interview Multiple Movers
Know your mover well. Relocation means leaving your prized possessions in the hands of strangers. Ask the potential movers if they have the necessary tools for heavy lifting. Are the workers trained to handle your assets with care? Interview the movers and verify if the Department of Transportation has licensed them to operate. Also, confirm that they are insured by a reliable insurance agency. Get the details of the insurer and also research them.

Don't forget to ask about packing, loading and unloading services. Inquire if the movers have spacious moving storage units and well-maintained trucks. Do not forget to read reviews to see if they get trusted with your items. Registration with the American Moving and Storage Association is another aspect you should not forget to ask about.
Watch for Actual Weight vs. Cubic Feet
Office moving companies who quote you based on cubic meets are likely to siphon money from you. The moving labor costs are typically calculated according to the weight of your rented moving truck – usually before and after it gets loaded with your items. Ensure you understand how your mover rates the moving costs.
Be Careful Online
Technology has made it easy on searching for movers online. You can check the company rates and the corresponding prices. However, be wary when hiring a mover based on what you see on the internet. Not all companies that pose to offer cheap moving services are reliable. Read reviews from BBB website to get concrete information about the company. Compare various movers to see what they are offering, just to be sure you will get all the services under one mover.
