Why you should hire a moving company
- Skills: Moving companies acquire skills through training and experience. They are rigorously trained to handle all types of items and provide safe services. They also handle moves routinely which increases their speed and safety.
- Packing: It accounts for over 40% of all moving expenses. It involves hundreds of items which makes it time-consuming and tedious. It also requires skill since the safety of the items needs to be observed for the long haul. Moving companies have professional personnel who use quality packing material for all your items. They also load them strategically in the vehicle to prevent movement in the carrier to avoid damage.
- No heavy lifting: Lifting heavy items can cause back and knee problems. It can also cause personal injuries such as breaking limbs or skin lacerations. Moving companies have personnel that are trained and proficient at handling heavy items. They also work in large numbers and use proper equipment to ensure they do not injure themselves or break your items.
- Professional inventory: Moving companies document all the items they are moving by taking an inventory. They list all the items according to the boxes packed and rooms they are destined for. This helps you spend less time when unpacking your items.

A checklist for an upright moving company
- Past customers opinion: Reliable moving companies often provide quality services to all customers. This in turn gets them positive reviews and referrals. The opinion of past customers is one of the best ways to determine a moving company’s level of services. Check customer opinions at the respective companies’ customer testimonials page.
- Licenses: All state to state movers should have a household items moving license from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association which authorizes them to move your items across states.
- Insurance: Moving companies are required to insure all household items they move. The basic insurance cover charges 60 cents a pound for all your items. This is sufficient for non-breakables, but valuable and delicate items require affixed insurance such as the full-value replacement cover. In this case you cover each item according to its value.
- Experience: Experience in moving companies equates to professionalism. The more experience a company has, the better the services they provide. Experienced movers have affordable rates due to the huge customer base and adequate moving resources they own.
- Avoid companies with a name switch. Some companies do so to avoid being assessed by the Better Business Bureau.
- Do not pay more than a 20% deposit.
- Avoid movers who claim to have insurance for all your items.
- Some companies have hidden charges such as elevator rates or parking fees. Establish who will be liable for any additional expenses once the move begins.
Make your move to Clovis flawless
- Make your long distance move when fewer people are moving. The period between the months of October to March is the off-season moving period. Moving companies also give better deals around this time.
- Source for moving supplies months ahead. Ensure you have adequate tape, markers and boxes to pack all your items professionally for the long haul.
- Declutter your items before you begin packing and while you pack. Separate items you do not need such as old and damaged items and sell them through a garage sale. You can also donate them to local charities.
- Evaluate the condition of your items as you pack. Some items such as LED panels or fine china need supplemental insurance apart from the basic bodily-harm and property-damage insurance.
