Cheap Movers in Goodyear
Moving is an experience that most people in the United States will have to go through at one time or another. Whether you’re leaving home for the first time or your responsible for a company’s relocation, moving is a part of the human experience. Folks moving to or from Goodyear, Arizona these days benefit greatly from the accessibility of information and the resources available from well known, local moving services. Details of a company’s business and the community’s thoughts on them are merely a click away. At A1, we want to help make the best decision for you, and make your transition as seamless as possible.
Hiring Professional Movers
When deciding whether or not to hire a moving service, taking into account the size and scope of your move should be your first step. If you can fit all of your items within your vehicle, then you probably don’t need a mover. Most folks have furniture, appliances and boxes of personal items that accumulate over the course of a lifetime. In those cases, finding the right mover is quite the burden off your plate. There are many benefits to hiring a company to help facilitate your move, including:
- Moving companies and their workers are trained in all facets of the moving experience.
- All of your stuff will have protection under the mover’s insurance coverage.
- You won’t undergo as much physical, mental or even financial stress.
- You won’t have to gather all the proper materials, tools and equipment because the movers will have everything necessary for the move to take place.
- Your relocation will be completed in a much quicker time period.
- You won’t be put at risk for injury and even your things will be much safer.
- You will easily have more time to focus on other things involved in the relocation process.
Comparing Nearby Movers for Hire
When comparing and contrasting movers, there a few key characteristics to be mindful of that will help in the decision making process. The first of which is whether or not your mover has a USDOT number. Companies operating commercial vehicles that haul cargo across state lines must be registered with the FMCSA. The USDOT number uniquely identifies the business and is traceable on the FMCSA’s website. The next thing you’ll want to do is visit www.google.com and search for “movers near me”. There you will see a list of movers in your proximity to review information about. Pay attention to the recent reviews concerning potential movers for those might be more indicative of the level of service they are performing currently.
The Cost of Moving
The price of your relocation services through professionals is much too difficult to determine immediately. In fact, many moving companies won’t hand out an exact total for services until an inspection has been performed. This inspection includes doing a walkthrough of your home in Goodyear before the move is to take place. While going through your home, they will count the rooms, view all of the property there is to move, consider what size truck or trucks are best to use, and determine how many movers are needed and how much time it will take to complete. It is then that the movers will have gained some of the insight they need to calculate a total for your services. Other factors that will affect the cost of your move include the following…
A-1 Auto Transport can help you move your household goods nationwide. Call 888-509-3213 to get a free, no obligation to buy price quote on interstate moving services.
- The miles between both locations
- How much your property weighs (it is weighed on the truck and the truck’s weight is subtracted)
- If you were able to take advantage of any price reductions
- The price of fuel at the time the move takes place
- How much labor and time is required to complete the move
- What moving and/or storage services you chose to purchase from the mover
If you don’t wish to wait to receive the exact total and need some insight as to what you may owe the mover, ask for quick quotes a.k.a. non-binding quotes. You can usually get this type of fast estimate in one of two ways- by phone or through the use of an online moving calculator found on the mover’s website. Either of these ways will provide you with a rounded estimate based on the few details you provide them with such as personal info, addresses for both locations, the type of relocation you have ahead, and how many rooms the structure includes.

Preparing for a Move
Even though most of your responsibilities are handed over to the movers once they’re hired, you will still have some obligations to see through. These duties will only help to protect your stuff and those working on your move even more. It will also assure that your moving process goes by quickly and without a hitch. Some of the ways you should prepare include…
- Cleaning your home to make sure that there aren’t any items that might hinder the movers from doing their job safely and efficiently.
- Clearing out a parking space for the movers that is nearest to the doorway as possible.
- Having absolutely no kids or pets around on the days the move is to take place. The movers must be able to work without distractions.
- Have all the documentation required by the moving company ready for their arrival.
- Pack up all your things (if you opted out of full packaging services) and make sure all boxes are clearly labeled.
