The key to hiring a reliable yet inexpensive mover is to know what traits all professional moving companies should have. That’s why we are here to help. Within no time, you will have scheduled your relocation services with a mover you can trust and afford.
Hiring Professional Movers
As stated previously, you must do some research to find the mover that is right for you but before you can do that, you need to be given more information. Seeing as you probably have no experience whatsoever in the moving industry, we would like to let you know what you should be looking for in a moving company. With as many scam artists as there is out there, we feel better knowing you’ve been well informed to make a good decision. Look for these particular characteristics as you scour each mover’s website…
- A license from the State of Arizona proving their legitimacy as a moving company.
- Valid, legal certifications proving their success in the industry.
- Registration with the Department of Transportation as proven through a USDOT number.
- Positive feedback as showcased through reviews and ratings on sites like Yelp or the BBB.
- Attentive, educated customer service representatives with the ability to answer your questions and address your concerns.
- The ability to care for your type of relocation efficiently by use of the proper equipment, tools, gear, and technology.
- Remain and persist as high competition in the industry and the area.
- Reasonable rates and no demand for payment until the relocation process is complete.
Luckily, with this newfound knowledge, you find it much easier to cut down your options. Make sure that you write down every potential mover’s contact info and that you take notes pertaining to each one. This will help you compare the movers in the end before you call one up to schedule services through them.
The Cost of Moving
Moving services are much more affordable through professionals. Trying to take on your relocation alone will only increase the amount you must spend towards the move especially if you must buy or rent the proper equipment and materials. However, to know exactly what your moving services will cost through a mover is nearly impossible to know right away. There are a lot of components that make up the total you pay the mover for their help and many of these things that affect the cost aren’t known until the move is underway. For example, here are some of the things the movers must consider and calculate…
- The gas price per gallon at the time of the transport
- How many laborers are needed and how much time the relocation process takes
- The weight of all your belongings
- What services you decided to use through the mover
- Whether you were able to take advantage of any discounts or not
- How far the movers must travel to reach the last destination from your home in Oro Valley

Since there is so much to be considered before drawing up an exact calculation for your services, most movers will offer free non-binding quotes. These estimates aren’t actual reflections of what you will pay but they serve to help you prepare for the final costs. A lot of individuals will use these quotes as they compare the movers in their area. Whatever your reason, it is wise to get a free quote.
For a free quote, your mover will probably provide you with at least one or two ways to get it. Some moving companies prefer that you call in and speak with a rep which is actually very beneficial seeing as you can then ask questions and see whether or not you qualify for any discounts. The other way to get a quote is by submitting a form found on the mover’s website. Once submitted, you will receive an email with your quote within minutes.

- Keep anything that might distract the movers away from your Oro Valley home on moving day but make sure you or another responsible party is present
