Hiring Professional Movers
The process of hiring a moving company is one that won’t take too much of your time up yet it is extremely important that you research the movers carefully before coming to any decisions. There are too many people out there willing to scam you out of your money by posing as a mover. Luckily, you will be well aware of these red flags after having some knowledge of what traits your mover should possess and display. Here are some of the most vital traits a mover should have…
- It is absolutely necessary for a moving company to uphold state licensing as well as registration with the Department of Transportation. Make sure that the moving companies you are considering have this licenses and a USDOT number as proof of their legitimacy. They may also carry other valid certifications.
- Their reputation amongst the community and past clientele should remain positive. By going to review sites such as Yelp, you can read reviews left by previous customers. You will also get to assess the company’s star ratings.
- As your mover, they must have the ability to assist you with your exact kind of relocation or at least have the ability to modify their services to meet your needs.
- It is always extremely nice when a mover has exceptional customer service. Their representatives should be available during business hours at least and have the ability to assist you with whatever it is you need.
- As a certified and licensed moving company, it is required that they uphold the minimum insurance requirements as set by the state. This means that the mover is obligated to provide every customer with insurance coverage that meets these restrictions set by the state. Since this coverage doesn’t always suffice, you may want to ask about additional insurance packages so that the full value of your property is protected.
The Cost of Moving
The cost of your relocation services relies on a lot of different things including the moving company you have chosen to hire. Every business has the right to set their own rates. Fortunately, most moving companies are known for their reasonable, cost-effective prices. What is unfortunate is that most movers cannot give out an honest total for their assistance until the move has been fulfilled or until they have come into your home to perform an evaluation prior to the scheduled move. Because of this, many of them offer quick estimates through online moving service calculators or to those that call in and request a non-binding quote.

Quotes by Phone
Quotes given over the phone may take a little more effort and time but they tend to be a little more accurate than moving calculator quotes. This is due to the amount of information you can provide the movers with when you have them on the phone. The more details, the more accurate your quote will be. Having the representative for the mover on the phone also allows you to ask questions and have any concerns addressed at the same time. Write down all the information you learn during the call.

- Save all your old newspapers and linens to protect glassware and breakables that you must pack away. Also, gather boxes from local shops, family and friends just make sure they’re in good condition.
- Instead of letting the movers pack your belongings for you, opt out of full packaging services. Of course, this is a very convenient service to take advantage of but if money is an issue, pack your stuff up without professional help.
- Avoid any complications during the move by making sure that everything is prepared and in order for the experts helping you. Complications may increase the price of your move through the movers if it forces them to bring in extra help or special equipment of any kind.
