Hiring Professional Movers
Now that you know why you should hire a mover, it is time to understand how you go about finding the best mover. Here are some of the things you should search for in a moving company if you wish to hire them…
- They should have valid certifications including a license from the State of Arizona and a USDOT number which serves as proof they registered with the Department of Transportation.
- A reputation that is highly regarded. Check out sites that allow people to leave reviews for companies they received services through. See what past customers have to say about their relocation experiences through that particular mover. A high star rating is also essential.
- Your mover should most obviously have the ability to assist the type of move you have ahead. Whether this means they offer specific relocation services for your needs or they can tailor your relocation plan accordingly.
- Customer service representatives with a positive attitude and ability to help are important. They should be capable of asking your questions and addressing your concerns.

Continue reading to learn more about the cost of moving and the non-binding quotes you should collect.
The Cost of Moving
Most movers cannot give a customer an actual total for services right away unless they are flat rate movers or hourly movers. The reason being, too many factors aggravate the total of your move. How so? Well, take a look at some of the things that a mover must consider before a total is calculated…
- How many miles the movers must travel to reach both destinations
- How much fuel costs at the time of the transport
- How much your property to transport weighs
- How many laborers are needed and how much time it will take to fulfill the relocation
- What services you chose to purchase through the mover
- What discounts or deals you’re able to take advantage of if any at all

When all of these things can be answered, the moving company will have everything they need to calculate your total for relocation services. However, as you can see, it is too difficult to predict some of these things until the move has already begun (EX: price of fuel; how much your stuff weighs).
Quick Quotes a.k.a. Non-Binding Estimates
Although these aren’t accurate, they serve the purpose of giving you somewhat of an idea as to what your move may cost in the end. They are also great to use as you spend time comparing the moving companies you’re considering for hire. There are two ways to get these quotes…
Over the Phone
If you call in to get your quote, you will likely receive a total that’s a bit closer to what you will actually owe the mover. This is because you can provide the representative with more details than you would be able to through the online form. Not to mention, this gives you the chance to ask the mover questions including whether or not you may qualify for any price reductions.
Moving Service Calculator
Using a moving service calculator is simple and self-explanatory. Simply fill out the form you find on the mover’s website and submit it when you’re done. After you have done this, within minutes you should find an email from the moving company with your quote inside.

Preparing for a Move
After you hire a mover, there isn’t much that you’re left obligated to fulfill in the process of the relocation. However, you should always prepare the best you can for the move. Not only does the preparation help to keep you and your stuff safer, but it helps protect everyone working to help you move.
Before the movers show up, make sure the home is picked up and that there isn’t anything left on the floor, stairs, in the hallways, or hanging from the ceilings. All of these things can cause an accident to happen or for someone to get injured as they collect your things for loading. Aside from cleaning up, have all your stuff packed and ready to go for the movers. Make sure all your boxes are labeled and taped shut. You must also prepare a parking spot for the movers near the entryway of the home.
