Hiring Professional Movers

- You’ll have fewer responsibilities to tend to since professionals will handle various parts of, or even all of the moving process.

- They will create a customized plan to ensure an almost effortless moving process for everyone.
- Hiring a mover opens up a lot of options including storage solutions, full packing services, international moving services, and more.
How Do I Know That I’m Hiring the Right Mover?
It’s best to be equipped with a little knowledge regarding the qualities a licensed mover should have. Local moving companies with the right traits will stand out as you search the Internet for one to employ. Here is what you a professional mover should have or portray…
- First and foremost, the moving company you choose to buy services through should have the proper certifications and licensing.
- The mover should have a great selection of services for you to choose from, or at least the services you need or desire for your relocation.
- When you call in to speak with the customer service representatives for a cheap mover, they should be friendly, resourceful and helpful.
- Their rates shouldn’t sound astronomical. Look for movers with reasonable prices and/or that possibly offer deals, promotions or discounts for qualifying customers.
- As a certified mover, they should have durable equipment, tools and gear so they can assist the relocation successfully.
- Every state mandates their residing moving companies to carry a specific amount of insurance for each of their customers. A few movers will even go beyond the state minimum and offer further protection.
The Cost of Moving
Handing out an immediate cost for moving services isn’t as simple as you may presume it would be. Your movers can however, give out an estimate based on some of the information you provide them with. They may offer this quick quote through an online calculator found on their website or by phone call. Otherwise, you will need to more than likely schedule an in-home evaluation with the movers before a true cost for services can be revealed.

What Determines the Final Cost of My Moving Services?
The moving pros will have to take several things into consideration before they can give out an honest total. Some of the things they must take into consideration include…
- What gas cost per gallon at the time of the transport
- How long there is to travel- miles between each location
- How much all your stuff weighs
- The amount of labor and time needed on the mover’s behalf to fulfill the job
- What moving services are purchased by the customer
It’s not uncommon for the movers to include other things into their calculations. Every moving company operates differently and has the right to choose their own rates. Nevertheless, you can assume that the above will always be taken into consideration prior to receiving your total. During the relocation process, there may even be obstacles or other matters that arise that may raise the cost of your final bill. This might mean that more help was called in or that special equipment was needed to assist the move, etc.
Are There Any Ways I Can Save Money On My Moving Services?
If you wish to save the most money possible during your relocation, there are some ways you can do so…
- Opt out of packing services. Although it is much less stressful and time consuming to allow the laborers working for the moving company to pack away your things, you may find that you can save some money by doing it yourself.
- Instead of buying all brand new packaging materials, use newspaper, linens and other soft household materials to help with your packing.
- See if you happen to qualify for any of the mover’s discounts or promotions. Sometimes, booking your move during the “off-season” will reduce your price instantly since many movers lower their prices during the slower months.

Preparing for a Move

- Make sure you get the packing done in time by starting at least 4 to 5 weeks before the date scheduled for the movers to come and load up the truck. Everything should be packed up according to the mover’s standards this includes marking each box clearly.
- Your home should be clean and easy to maneuver through so that there is less risk for accidents when the movers come in to start the relocation process.
- Have all the requested documentation ready for the moving company.
- Start transferring utilities and fulfilling other such matters including address changes.
Doing your part towards the relocation will keep everyone safer and everything else going as it should as according to the plan put together by the professionals.
