Why use a professional mover?

Reliability

A moving company knows the secret to more business is being reliable. They show up on time and deliver the items promptly. The items arrive in the same condition they left. Any hurdle experienced along the moving process is solved with no delays. The company is aware of risky situations and applies appropriate measures to avoid or counter them.

Accountability and professionalism

Professional movers have an office in most cities and trained employees. Their customer service is above average. They talk in a respectable manner and promptly respond to queries.
They are honest and the estimates cover all moving tasks. If anything gets damaged in the moving process, be sure you will get reimbursed.

Affordability

A moving company is cost-efficient. They enjoy economies of scale by dealing with huge volumes and long distances. If you have a load moving in the same direction with another customer, they consolidate these and reduce the fee charged.

A moving company can handle a corporate relocation in a single trip. If it were to be done by the owners, it would probably take numerous trips with several vehicles.

A moving company charges for the services rendered and unplanned circumstances in the estimate. This ensures that in case accidents occur, they are covered for and the owner does not suffer a loss. The set budget is rarely exceeded.

A mover also uses the least time possible. They ensure the delays are kept in check by swift employees and the right equipment. Using minimal time saves much money.

Hire movers within your locality. They know the terrain well and have a bond with the city’s residents. Check local moving companies at IMAWA.

The best tips for a successful move

  • Begin by packing essential items in a clear plastic tub.
  • Scale down your items. Organize a yard sale or ask Goodwill to pick them.
  • Wrap delicate items like utensils and small gadgets with clothes. You can also pack them together with clothes.
  • Cover the tops of all bathroom items and wrap liquid bottles with plastic to avoid spills.
  • Label the boxes according to the items they contain and their rooms. Use a color and number coding system. It helps when unpacking and arranging.
  • Have a plastic pouch to pack small items like bolts, nuts and screws.
  • Take photographs of the electrical cabling.
  • Use baskets, trash bags and laundry bins to save on use of boxes.
  • Hire a babysitter for the kids and pets.
  • Change your address at least 3 weeks before moving.
  • Clean the house and fill the holes with soap before moving out. Clear out your groceries and give them to friends who helped with the move.
