Orem Cheap Moving Companies
When people think of Utah, Salt Lake City might be the first metropolitan area that comes to mind, but it’s certainly not the only place worth living in the state. Like many of Utah’s hidden gems, Orem isn’t exactly a household name in most of the country, but perhaps that’s exactly what residents like as it keeps the city secluded.
Flanked by mountains and rolling hills, Orem sits just west of Utah Lake and is home to Utah Valley University—it’s precisely the kind of hometown everyone hopes their kids will have the chance to grow up in.
Whether you’re looking to call Orem home or you’re already lucky enough to do so and just need to hop from one house or apartment to another, a moving company can make the transition much simpler.
Before you simply choose the most cut rate movers that can offer the steepest discounts, take the time to do your due diligence. Assess companies based on all of their traits rather than on price alone, and make an informed decision that aligns with your moving needs.
How to Evaluate A Moving Company
If you’re like most people, the temptation to search “cheap movers near me” may simply be too much to overcome. That’s fair—affordable moving companies are important to take note of since prices are such a huge influencing factor in your ultimate choice.
However, it’s more than just a company’s rates that define them, so ask yourself these few questions (and any others that logically arise along the way) before you decide to hire a moving company.
Do they have the proper licensing and insurance?
This might seem like a foregone conclusion, but you can never be too careful as there’s always someone willing to operate outside of the regulations to make more money. Without both of these things, your items are put in jeopardy as they’re not protected if anything goes wrong during the actual move. If the fact that they’re licensed and insured isn’t stated clearly on their website, be sure to ask questions on this subject.

Do they have experience with long distance moving as well as local moving?
Maybe you’re just relocating across town, but a company that has spent time completing a range of different moves is going to be prepared for anything. What’s more, should you ever need to complete interstate moves in the future, you’ll know that these are movers you can trust to get the job done.
Is your moving situation unusual? Do they provide this service?
Things like military moves and full service moving might not be in the wheelhouse of some companies. Additionally, even simple office moving could be beyond their realm of expertise. If you don’t see the service you need, listed in the company’s offerings, make sure that they have completed this sort of project before.
How do their rates compare to other companies?
The right company will be able to offer you a competitive price, but if one of the quotes you receive falls well below the others, something may be suspect. Companies will sometimes not include certain services in their quotes, only to tack them on at the end.
Do they have the necessary equipment to complete your move?
Certain furniture moving, particularly on commercial jobs, can require special equipment. Likewise, if you’re completing a coast to coast move and you can’t opt for door to door service for one reason or another, does the company have the capability to store your items until you can retrieve them?
These are just some of the most important things to consider as you narrow down your search for the right moving company. Every move is different, so try to write out a list of your own questions as a way of evaluating different movers. Of course, in a more general sense, you’ll want to start by figuring out exactly what type of move you’re completing.
How to Categorize Your Move
It might seem fairly simple to break your move down by its category, but making sure you have a firm grasp on what exactly you need will help you when selecting a company. Obviously, if you’re moving between residences, it’s a residential move; if you’re switching offices, it’s a commercial move.
If your residential or commercial move is taking place within a single city, the move is local; if it requires interstate travel, it’s usually considered a long distance move. Different companies have different ways of defining long distance moves, but some obvious instances are if you’re moving state to state.
Door to door, full service, and moving to storage facilities are some examples of more specific move types within these general categories. Make sure that you know which type of move you’ll need help completing when you begin reaching out to moving companies, particularly if it’s a somewhat unusual type. Not all moving companies are created equal, and some only have experience in a specific type of move.
If you’re not sure where your move falls in terms of category, that’s okay—a company that’s truly invested in your experience will be more than willing to talk through the specifics with you until you both understand what exactly you need.
How to Get The Most Value for Your Money
This point is rather simple. If you want high quality service, regardless of into which category your move falls, and you want it to come at a fair and affordable price, then there’s no better company for the job than A-1 Auto Transport.
