St. George Cheap Moving Companies
The city of St. George, Utah is about as far South and West you can go in the state without finding yourself in Arizona or Nevada. That said, it’s home to some of the most striking views in all of Utah, and ones that sharply contrast the ski-resort aesthetic of more populous areas like Salt Lake City.
A true gem of the American Southwest, St. George denizens can get lost in a number of bordering state parks or the stunning Red Cliffs National Conservation area. Within city limits, St. George boasts a rich history and a budding art scene.
It’s not hard to see why those looking to escape to somewhere truly sublime would settle on relocating to St. George, but the remoteness of the city can make moving there efficiently somewhat of a hassle. Naturally, the solution is to hire a moving company, but this comes with challenges of its own. Before settling on a moving company to help you settle into St. George, take a systematic approach to the choice.
Know What to Look for in A Company
Because St. George is nestled in a whole lot of remote nature, you might be wondering, “are there cheap movers near me? Or am I doomed to pay shockingly high prices?” You’ll be pleased to hear that yes, there are plenty of affordable moving companies who can help with your St. George move.
However, that doesn’t mean that every company willing to help with your move is the right team for the job. A company’s rates are important to be sure, but that’s not the only thing you should consider when selecting movers. Here are some other questions you might want to ask the companies as you gather quotes:
How does your insurance coverage protect me if we work together?
This is a big one, because you don’t want to expect something bad to happen to your things during the move, but you have to be prepared for the worst. A reputable moving company should have insurance that will protect you from incurring losses if your items are damaged in the move, but make sure you understand the specifics of their policy before you hire them.

What sort of moves are you experienced in completing?
Part of the importance of this question depends on exactly what type of move you’re making. Are you just switching apartments within St. George? Check that the company has a background in local moving. Are you moving from state to state, or even coast to coast? Make sure the company has completed long distance moving jobs in the past. Better yet, try to find a company that has expertise in a number of different fields, from office moving to military moves, as this indicates a well-rounded service.
Moreover, you’ll need to know the level of service that you expect from a moving company. Do you want to hire them for a full service move, wherein the company takes care of everything and you simply show up to the new building? Would you prefer a more basic door to door service where your items are delivered, but that’s about it? Find out what types of services the company can comfortably offer.
Do you have special equipment for heavy furniture moving?
Particularly if you’re completing a commercial move from one office to another, you’ll want to make sure that the moving company has the equipment necessary to move your heavy items. The last thing you want is to hire a company, only to find they lack the ability to move all of your things at the last moment.
Have you storage facilities available should I need to use them?
This is generally a consideration for those completing interstate moves. Sometimes your items will arrive at their destination before you do, or they will arrive before their new home is quite ready to receive them. Whatever the reason, there are many instances where you might need to store your belongings for a period of time before finishing the move-in process, so associated storage facilities are a huge plus.
Can you talk through the services that might be right for my situation specifically?
The right company will have a friendly staff that’s willing to take their time in understanding your needs. This will give you peace of mind that you’re working with a team that genuinely cares, but also allow you to take comfort in the fact that you fully understand what it is you’re paying for.
Every situation is different, and moving isn’t a one size fits all experience. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and talk through your options as you look for the movers that best fit your needs.
How You Can Make The Process Go More Smoothly
By thoroughly understanding and managing your expectations prior to your moving day, you’ll make the experience easier on both yourself and the company you’re working with. Make sure you’re comfortable with the prices, as discounts won’t likely be applied retroactively.
The day of your move, make sure that your home or office is clear of additional people so the movers are able to do their jobs. Particularly if you’ve opted for a full service move, you’ll only slow things down by attempting to help out, so just sit back and let the professionals take care of the heavy lifting.
In reality, the biggest thing you can do to make moving go more smoothly once you’ve hired a company to help with the process is simply manage yourself and leave the rest up to your movers. Trust that you’ve chosen the right team, and try to enjoy the excitement of a fresh start.
