Hiring Professional Movers
As the time arrives to find the right mover (most prefer months in advance), search through every mover that pops up in your search engine to make sure they carry the right qualities. These qualities showcase their ability to manage a move properly no matter what it entails, so pay very close attention. Here are some of the things you should be paying attention to…
- State licensing, USDOT registration and certificates of approval through local, state and federal authorities
- Insurance coverage that at least meets the standards set by the State of Alabama. Many movers will provide supplemental insurance packages for those who wish to have more coverage on the value of their possessions
- Customer service reps that readily and happily answer the phone to greet customers and provide them with assistance
- A firm reputation that proves their reliability as a moving service. Check review sites for ratings and reviews
- Moving services that meet your needs and your budget
There are other great qualities that the movers may possess. Write down what you’ve learned and create a list of the movers you’d like to receive more information or quotes from.
Advantages That Come with Hiring a Moving Company
- Less physical and emotional stress

The Cost of Moving
By way of online calculators (found on a mover’s website) or by calling in, you can receive a quick quote. This quote only serves to provide you with a better depiction of what your move may cost through that particular mover. Use these quick quotes for comparison purposes. Otherwise, to receive an actual estimate that reflects the exact rate you must pay, you may need to schedule an in-home inspection with the mover or wait until the relocation has been carried out in its entirety. Regardless, anticipate paying anywhere from $15 or more per square foot of your home and you will find that you are well prepared to pay the final costs.

Ways to Reduce the Final Cost of Your Move
Of course, it is more beneficial to take advantage of everything the mover has to offer if you wish for as little responsibility in the moving process as possible. However, this won’t be so friendly to your budget. If you are curious if there are ways to reduce your final bill, there are and here’s how…
- Use linens, old clothes, newspaper, paper plates, and other soft pliable materials for packaging. You can shove the materials in voids found in the boxes you already filled or to wrap up objects that are fragile.
- Go to the dollar store or other such shop to buy packaging materials such as tape, labels and markers.
- Ask friends, family and local shops to save boxes and crates for you to use.
- Wait until the off season to book moving services.
- Instead of purchasing full packing services, pack on your own.
- Ask about discounts and specials you may qualify for.
