Read forth to learn all that you need to know so that you can hire a mover and get your move underway in no time.
Hiring Professional Movers
To find the most honorable mover, use the Internet to search for “affordable moving companies nearby.” After a list appears, go through each moving company’s website to make sure that they possess characteristics that only go to prove their success in the moving industry. What are these qualities, you ask?
- Certifications from local, state and/or federal authorities.
- Licensing through the State of Arizona which also means they must obey the laws for insurance coverage. All licensed movers must uphold the insurance guidelines. Since this doesn’t include protecting the full value of your belongings, don’t hesitate to ask if they offer additional insurance packages.
- All movers must have a registered USDOT number.
- Friendly, trained customer service is essential. It’s comforting to know that if you have a question or concern, you can refer to the customer service reps for the mover for help.
- The moving company should maintain a healthy reputation. To see what past clients have said about their experience with the customer, read through review sites and check the ratings given to the company too.
So now that you are equipped with the information you need to find a mover, you may wonder why it’s so beneficial to hire one instead of conducting the relocation on your own. Here are the advantages of employing a moving company…
- There are far fewer risks involved. The movers train and educate their employees on proper safety practices.
- You won’t have to conduct as much physical labor and won’t be at as high of a risk for injury.
- Your relocation will go along much quicker.
- You will have more time in the day to pay attention to other matters involving the relocation.
- Emotionally, physically and financially, you won’t be as stressed.
- You won’t have nearly as many responsibilities left up to you, alone.
The Cost of Moving
Trying to get an exact cost for moving services is nearly impossible, at least right away. It takes thorough calculations to come up with an honest total. This information takes some time to learn. That’s why a lot of movers will offer non-binding quotes on their website or by phone. Despite the fact that these quotes aren’t completely accurate, they do help give the customer some sort of idea of what their moving services may cost. Collect these quotes from all potential movers so that you can use them with the other info you’ve gathered to decide who is the best mover to hire.
While non-binding quotes only require bits of information, a binding estimate requires much more. The list below explains all the things that must be taken into account before a true estimate can be given…
