These costs quickly add up, so take the smarter, more cost effective route and hire a licensed moving company.
Hiring Professional Movers
In order to find a moving company you can trust, you must first do your due diligence by conducting some thorough online research. It is extremely important that you take the time to research several moving companies before choosing to hire one. There are particular attributes and traits that a mover should possess if they are to be trusted as professionals in the industry.
What Should I Look For In a Mover?
- All movers are required to carry state licensing and other certifications proving their authenticity.
- Once licensed, a mover must abide by the state’s minimum insurance demands. Ask the movers’ about their insurance policies. Obviously, the more protection they provide, the better. Some moving companies may offer supplemental insurance packages at low costs if you wish for the entire value of your goods to be covered.
- While some movers choose to stick with specific kinds of relocations, others offer a vast assortment of features and services to their customers. For example, here at A1 we take pride in the variety of moving and storage solutions we are able to extend to our customers. Find a mover that has the services and help you’re looking for. It does exist.
- A highly regarded reputation is crucial. Go through different review websites to check out a moving company’s reviews and ratings.
- The mover you have decided to hire should have a time honored history in the moving industry.

How Do I Compare the Moving Companies I Have Interest In to Make a Choice?
After you have checked out several moving companies in the area, start comparing what you’ve learned about each one by reviewing the information you’ve gathered from their websites and other reliable sources. Condense your list to a few movers that possess the right characteristics and moving services you seek. Don’t forget to write down the contact information for each of the movers you have interest in. Then, call each one so that you can ask for a quick quote. Although the estimate won’t be the final cost as reflected on your bill later on, it will be a close depiction of what you should expect to pay. You will want to use these quotes for comparison reasons too.
Once you have gone through all the information you’ve collected and made a choice as to whom you should hire for help with your Orange Beach relocation, call and schedule a moving date. This date should be at least a few weeks out. That gives everyone time to prepare effectively.
The Cost of Moving
As stated previously, the cost of your move is hard to determine prior to an in-home evaluation or even before the relocation is fulfilled. There are many obstacles that may raise the cost of your relocation while it takes place. Of course, flat rate movers are a little more honest with their totals right away but this isn’t necessarily the cheapest route to take. To fully understand what the final cost of moving usually includes, we’ve decided to show you a few of the things that nearly all movers must take into consideration while performing their calculations for a job…
- Since the price for fuel constantly changes, the cost of gas per gallon at the time of the relocation will matter as concluding calculations are being drawn.
- The services you chose to purchase and the type of relocation you are planning for.
- The weight of all your home’s belongings to be moved.
- How far the moving professionals must travel to get from your current home to your future home.
- Last but not least, the amount of help and time it will take the mover’s to complete the relocation.

Preparing for a Move
There is no simple way to get ready for relocation even if your moving to the next block or into a small apartment complex. As the person purchasing moving services, you will be held responsible for completing some tasks before moving day appears. The greatest way to stay on top of everything going on is by creating a to-do list or checklist. Some of your responsibilities will likely include…
- Cleaning up the home before the movers come so that there is absolutely nothing in their way as they go around collecting your goods to load on the truck.
- Making sure that all of your belongings are packed as according to the mover’s standards (this is only applicable to those who chose NOT to purchase full packing services or full service moving).
- Make sure your schedule is free on the day the movers are due to arrive so that you can be present. However, if you have any kids or own any pets, it’s best to have them out of the way that day.
- Prepare all the documentation requested by the movers if you have not yet gave them what they needed.
- Change your address, subscriptions, utility companies, etc.
