Cheap Movers in Peoria
The trick to finding an affordable yet completely dependable moving company near your home in Peoria is to know what it is you should be looking for in a mover. With all the movers there are available out there, there’s got to be some way to separate the good ones from the bad ones. Well, there certainly is a way and we are going to fill you in on all the traits your mover should have. This information will make it much easier to find the cheap, professional mover that is best suited for your relocation.
Hiring Professional Movers
When you are ready to find the most affordable and reliable mover nearby, jump on the Internet and use your favorite search engine to look for “cheap moving companies near me.” Immediately, you will have a bunch of options appear. It is very risky to just choose from the options presented which is why we want to make sure you are well-knowledgeable of what characteristics make a great moving company. Here is what you should be scouring their websites for…
- They should have their license from the State of Arizona. All moving companies are demanded to be licensed through their own state.
- Licensed moving companies must also maintain the requirements for insurance coverage. Each state sets the minimum amount of insurance that movers must provide to each and every customer. If you wish for the full value of your possessions to be protected under this insurance, ask the moving company about additional insurance options.
- They should have a USDOT number and any other validating certifications.
- Their prices for services should be reasonable and they shouldn’t ask for the relocation to be paid for until the services have been fulfilled successfully.
- Their customer service staff should be readily available during business hours and maintain a friendly, positive, professional and helpful demeanor.
- As shown through multiple review sites, they have a strong reputation and high ratings.
Once you have found a few movers with the right qualities, write down their names, take notes about them, and get their contact information collected. You will want to call them soon to receive a free non-binding quote which can be used to help you compare all the movers.
The Cost of Moving
Don’t ever fret over the cost of your moving services. Although most movers cannot give out accurate calculations for their services until they have been rendered, their rates should be somewhat reflective of what they have listed online. Because actual totals cannot be given until the move is either completed or an appraisal of your home in Peoria has been performed, your mover will likely suggest a non-binding quote. While non-binding quotes shouldn’t be taken literally, they are great for helping you prepare for the final cost of the move. If you’re still worried about the costs, there are some ways you can reduce the final total.
Ways to Save on Moving Services
- Choose not to take advantage of optional features like full packing services.
- If you are packing and not the movers, ask local businesses, friends and family to save boxes for you. You can also use old newspapers and linens for stuffing and wrapping, and paper or Styrofoam plates in between dishes to keep them from breaking.
- Try to book your move during the moving companies’ slower season (usually winter months).
- Take advantage of any discounts, deals or promotions that you can.
- Try to have everything prepared properly so that there is no accident or injury that might occur that will increase your total moving costs.
- Lighten the load for the movers. Go through your things and decide what to keep, toss, donate or sell. By reducing the number of things the movers will need to transport, you are automatically reducing the cost of your move. Then, if you choose to sell items, you’re earning additional cash.

Preparing for a Move
How much and how well you prepare for a move will ultimately determine its success. After hiring a mover near your home in Peoria, you will already be relieved from much of the responsibility. However, this gives you all the more time to get ready for the movers to arrive as scheduled. Part of a successful moving process includes the ability to avoid risks and by preparing for the movers, you are greatly reducing those risks. Do your part in the relocation process and make sure these duties are fulfilled before they knock on your door…
- The house is cleaned and picked up so that there is nothing in the movers’ way
- There aren’t any kids or pets running around the home as they try to conduct their job
- All of your things are packed and ready to go as according to the company’s requirements
- You have given clear directions and proper addresses and contact information to the moving company
- You have prepared enough money to pay for your services once they’re completed
- Convenient and safe parking must be available nearest to the home as possible
