Why you should hire a moving company
- Better packing: Moving companies routinely perform tasks like packing and loading which consequently improve on their capabilities. They use corrugated boxes and padding material to ensure safety of the items in boxes. They can dismantle large items and move them in bits, label and list contents to avoid mixing them up. Proper packing makes unpacking very easy.
- Swift delivery: Time is an important component for a successful move. A good moving company will ensure that time is observed because delays will most likely translate to more spending. Movers are trained, meaning, lifting and moving heavy and delicate items will be done with ease. They also come with advanced equipment, such as trolleys, ramps and modified vehicles that ensure a fast and swift relocation for you.
- Know the terrain: Moving companies are familiar with most terrains having used the same roads over time. This familiarity is an advantage for them since they have established the conditions of the road, where they need to avoid a pothole, where traffic gets congested, when the weather is not friendly etc.

Find the best moving company in Ferguson
Ask people within your neighborhood for recommendations of a reliable moving company. Friends or family might have dealt with a mover in the past. If they had a pleasant experience, they will give a glowing recommendation.
Check the American Movers and Storage Association. They are the best source for state to state and intrastate moving companies. All members are professionally trained to offer quality services and fulfill the customer requirements. They live by the association’s code of ethics which promotes fairness and integrity. Check for the Promover logo when dealing with the association’s members.
Verify a company’s service history at the Federal Motor Carrier and Safety Association. The body monitors the activity of moving companies to ensure they adhere to the set safety standards. All companies must have an updated insurance cover, a satisfactory safety rating and little/zero pending violations to conduct moves across the country.
Ask for moving quotations from different companies and make a comparison. Understand how delivery intervals and pricing works before settling for a fair quote. It also helps you negotiate for better terms like discounts. Some movers offer very low quotes to entice you into signing the contract and later on hold your items as ransom.
Six useful tips when moving to Ferguson
- Make a moving plan at least 3 months in advance before you begin handling any moving tasks. Set a convenient moving date, determine what you need to move and call friends to help with simple tasks.
- Use org for free packing supplies. They have corrugated boxes, tapes and markers. Check their condition and handle them carefully since you have to return them in the state you took them.
- Sort out your belongings and only move items you need. Unnecessary items increase the cost of moving while reducing your hauling and packing efficiency. You can pack the items and ship them to Goodwill or sell them on eBay.
- Keep all moving and donations receipts and use them to claim tax benefits from the IRS.
- Pack your items weeks in advance. It eliminates the last minute rush which often results to inefficiencies like leaving some items behind and accidents.
- Ease the movers’ workload by clearing pathways and placing the packed items in a central position. This means the movers will spend less time handling your move which in turn reduces the moving day’s charge.
