Hiring Professional Movers
In order to find a moving company that you can trust with the handling of your things, you must understand what it is you should be looking for in a mover. Once you know what traits a reliable, professional moving company must have, you will find that it is much easier to spot the best companies around Queen Creek. Here are the must-haves we’re speaking of…
- A USDOT number that proves the company is registered with the Department of Transportation.
- Every moving company must have a license issued by their state.
- A state requirement for all licensed movers is to provide a specific amount of insurance coverage to every customer. Since this coverage is set by the state and typically doesn’t protect the full value of your belongings, you should ask the mover if they have additional insurance plan options.
- Like all service companies, the moving company should find it easy to maintain positive notoriety. Go to various review sites to see what past customers have to say about their experience with the moving company you’re considering.
- As your mover, they must have the ability to help you with your particular move. For instance, if you’re moving across the country, make sure you hire a cross country mover or a moving company that can carry out that kind of relocation.
- Your mover shouldn’t ask for a large down payment and especially not full payment before the relocation has been completed. They should also have reasonable, affordable rates.
When you find moving companies that showcase all of the above qualities, write down their company name and contact information. When you have a small list of potential movers written down, start calling them to get quick quotes and more information for comparison purposes.
The Cost of Moving
The cost of moving through professionals is quite hard to configure before the relocation has been fully carried out. That’s why a lot of moving companies will offer quick, free quotes either by phone or through an online calculator. Even though these types of estimates aren’t to be taken as actual totals for your services through the movers, they are close estimates that can be useful data while comparing moving companies. They also allow you to prepare for the cost of the move in advance.

Some relocation experts will give an exact total for a customer’s moving services in the Bill of Lading. In order for them to do this, they must first conduct an apprasial of the home. This walkthrough allows them to estimate how much time and labor is needed. It also allows them to see how much there is to move, what size truck or trucks they may need, and how difficult it may be for the laborers to perform their tasks due to the design or construction of the home.
According to the American Moving and Storage Association, the average cost for a state to state move is around $1,170 and an intrastate move is upward towards $6,000. Of course, these are just averages but it serves to give you a clear idea of how affordable it can be to move through professionals.

Preparing for a Move
Since the movers need to prepare in their own way for the relocation, you will have some obligations of your own. It is especially important for you to prepare accordingly before moving day. Your part in the act of preparation will help keep the relocation going along smoother, faster and overall, safer. To stay on top of it all, it is wise to keep a checklist with you at all times. Some of the things written on that list should include…
- Clean up the house. Make sure there is nothing in the way of the movers as they navigate through the Queen Creek house.
- Have adequate parking space for the moving company truck or trucks. This space should preferably be paved or on solid ground. It should also be near the entrance of the home.
- To keep the movers safe from any distractions, have all children and pets watched elsewhere by a trusted family member or friend.
- Make sure everything is packed up according to the mover’s standards. This means that the proper packaging materials must be used, the boxes should be sealed with packaging tape, and labeled with permanent marker.
