Hiring Professional Movers
It’s not uncommon to purchase relocation assistance and then get scammed by those posing as professional movers. Make sure you are aware of the signs pointing towards these con artists as you search for a dependable company mover. Luckily, you can further avoid this possibility by following the advice below.
- Check the reviews and ratings for the company mover by going to the BBB website and other review sites. The Better Business Bureau lets individuals post reviews and ratings regarding the services or products they receive from a business.
- It has been found that most con artists demand a full payment up front or a large sum of the total moving service costs before the job is completed. An experienced moving company tends to ask for a small percentage (around 10%) down payment before services begin, if they expect any money at all in advance.
- You can usually find long standing, reliable moving companies online since nearly all of them possess their own websites to provide interested individuals with further information and ways to contact them directly.
- By state law, every licensed and registered moving company must protect their customers’ belongings with moving insurance. They must at least offer the minimum protection as deemed by the state they’re located in. Most experienced movers will even provide the option to purchase further insurance coverage so that customers can choose to protect the full value of all their company’s possessions during the relocation.
- All movers should have USDOT registration as well as the proper local, state and federal licensing. Certifications through verified associations are also a great sign of trustworthiness and professionalism.

The Cost of Moving
Don’t worry about the costs of purchasing residential relocation services. They’re actually quite affordable and will even save you money when all is said and done. It is common for a move that is self-completed to cost more than it would to have professionals see it through. However, until the movers can gather some info from you, it is difficult for them to hand out an exact cost of your desired level of service.
Most moving companies will calculate the costs of your company relocation services by considering the weight of everything in the building and the overall mileage between locations, as well as other such matters and relevant details. The going rate for fuel at the time, the distance that must be traveled, and several other things are also important factors that will affect your total price of the relocation. Of course, there are ways to reduce the costs of the move is necessary and your mover should provide you with their recommendations if this is the case.

Preparing for a Move
Getting ready for your relocation out of Cullman is the absolute best way to guarantee a safe and sound moving process. By staying organized and aware of everything going during the relocation, you can better prepare for moving day. Here is a little advice to help ensure a smooth relocation:
- Pack, enclose and properly label all you transportable items (If you choose to pack up your home yourself)
- When finished packing a room, organize the boxes against the wall for easy movement throughout the place
- Label and partition particularly important boxes. Some items you may want to transport personally and it’s a good idea to label those items so you know where they are
- An inventory list will help you locate your items and account for everything
- Consider having some cleaning items left at home so you can do a thorough scrub once all is said and done
- Look to always purchase insurance through your moving service. It’s the ultimate protection for such an important transport
- Have a plan in mind for your children or pets when moving day comes. Have a friend watch everyone or hire a sitter
Moving day is easier for all parties when you are fully prepared. Create a checklist so that you can write down things that need addressed and cross them off as you complete them. This will only encourage your ability to remain current with the relocation. If you were interested in really being ahead of the game, prepare checklists for the 3 important times when it comes to moving. A checklist for all tasks prior to your move. Another list for tasks you need to take care of the day of your move and the following day. Lastly, a tasklist for your first week in your new location. These lists will change and evolve as you cross things off and add new items to your list
