Layton Cheap Moving Companies
Sitting just between the Great Salt Lake and the northernmost peaks of the Wasatch mountain range, Layton, Utah has more than enough natural splendor to keep any nature lover entranced for a while. Less than an hour North of Salt Lake City, Layton offers metropolitan convenience with a more tight-knit vibe.
One of the largest draws to the area is Hill Air Force Base, which sits just on the outskirts of Layton. Whether you’re a military service member relocating to the Layton area, a Salt Lake City transplant looking for a more laid back lifestyle, or a business owner who’s outgrown their current space, there are plenty of reasons you might be moving to Layton.
All of these potential reasons have one important thing in common: they’ll come with a great deal of associated stress. That doesn’t have to be the case, though, if you hire the right moving company. Just like anything else, if you take a systematic approach to choosing your movers, you’re more likely to find the right team for you.
Start by Breaking Your Move down by Category
If you have moved a lot in your life (as is certainly the case if you’re a member of a military family), then you know that not all moves are created equal. As such, it’s important to make some distinctions prior to reaching out to moving companies.
Start by filtering your move in terms of type. As in, is it a residential or commercial move? Office moving is a completely different animal than relocating a house or apartment, particularly if it requires special furniture moving equipment due to especially heavy items.
Once you’ve decided which type of move you’ll need assistance with, break it down further by distance. Local moving and long distance moving require very different things from the moving company, both in terms of the time commitment and the potential for extra services rendered.
For example, if you’re completing a coast to coast relocation, you need a company that is well versed in the art of interstate moves. What’s more, you might want to find a company that has storage facilities available in case everything doesn’t quite go according to plan and you need to house your things with the company briefly. Likewise, you might want a full service experience that simply allows you to arrive at your new home and jump into your new life; this will require higher prices than a simple door to door move.
If you’re moving to Layton as a member of the military, make sure you seek out a company that has experience with military moves. This will make your life much easier, and will require significantly less time from you in terms of explaining your situation.
Armed with a thorough understanding of what type of move exactly you’ll be making, you’re better equipped to begin searching for affordable moving companies to assist with your Layton move.

Move on to Finding The Right Movers
Much like categorizing the move itself, you can take the search process for a moving company with a step by step approach.
● Start with the search. Be honest, your first line of defense when seeking out a moving company is to type “cheap movers near me” into your search engine. This query will generate plenty of options, and that’s a great starting point, but be ready to eliminate a great deal of them right from the start based on too many poor reviews or issues with their services not meeting your needs.
● Filter out those that don’t meet your needs. If you’re moving from state to state, you obviously don’t want to hire movers who only work locally. It’s fine to find a company that specializes in your type of move specifically, but it’s even better if you can find one that has expertise in many different types of moves.
● Make sure the remaining companies are properly licensed and insured. Once you’ve narrowed down the field to only those companies that offer the services you’re looking for, make sure they’re reputable by checking their credentials. A properly insured company means that you’re protected from losses should an issue arise during your move; ask about how exactly that coverage would work for you in such a situation.
● Seek out a few free quotes. Any moving company worth working with will offer you a free quote. This estimate might change somewhat as you get more specific with your service wishes, but it will give you a good idea of how much you can expect to pay for each of the potential movers.
● Compare rates and overall service quality. Discounts are great, but they’re not everything. If all of the companies come in at very close price point, it’s going to come down to the quality of service you feel that they offer.
● Hire the team that feels right to you. Lean on the interactions you’ve had with each of the companies thus far to feel out which one seems most aligned with your needs. This is going to include factors like the quality of customer service, and the range of options a company offers.
By this point, you will have a clear picture of which moving company is the right choice for you. The only thing left to do at that point is sit back and wait for moving day to arrive.
