If you’re unsure of how to go about finding the right mover, what the costs might be, or how to prepare for your move, we’re here to help lend you some advice.
Hiring Professional Movers
There are many moving services out there that are competing for your business, but before you hire just anyone make sure you do a fair amount of research. Start calling around and comparing quotes at least two months prior to the date you wish to move. The earlier you schedule your move, the more likely it will be that you can move on the date you desire.
If you moving service doesn’t act professional over the phone or they can not seem to answer your questions, move on to the next company. If you feel like their quote is too good to be true, odds are it is. Never sign a contract with a moving company unless they give you a binding-estimate. The best way to determine whether or not a moving company is credible is to read customer reviews.
Your Cheat Sheet to Finding the Right Mover
- By law, all movers must have been issued a license from the state in which they are situated- in this case, Arkansas. All licensed movers are also required to meet the demands for insurance coverage. Although this coverage doesn’t usually protect the entire value of your goods, it is helpful and many movers will provide additional insurance plans at low costs.
- Your mover should be registered with the Department of Transportation as proven through a USDOT number. Other lawful certifications are also a plus.
- The companies’ customer service reps should be helpful, encouraging and friendly. They should find it easy to offer you professional guidance and to answer any and all of your questions.
- A great rep is important. Read through testimonials and reviews for each mover in consideration. Also view the companies’ ratings.
The Cost of Moving
The cost of professional moving services is almost completely up in the air until the moving process has already begun. There are so many factors that play a role in the actual cost of your move and unfortunately, many of them aren’t known until later on in the moving process. For example, the cost of fuel will affect the cost of your move through the experts and the price of gas changes so frequently that it isn’t until moving day has arrived that the movers will have an idea of gas prices.
Other things that affect the cost of your move include how many laborers will be needed and how much time they must spend on your relocation process. Whether or not special equipment is necessary and if there is any furniture or equipment disassembly and assembly required to complete the move is also a factor. The services you chose to buy from the mover and whether you qualified for any price reductions is also taken into consideration when calculations are being drawn up for a binding agreement.
