Why hire a professional mover?
- Coordination: Coordination is paramount for a move to pan out well. The movers have roles assigned to them and each is executed within time. Moving companies have an able management structure that monitors all activities to ensure they adhere to the set plan.
- Professional inventory: Moving companies take stock of all items you want moved when conducting a walk-through. They list the items and draw out a plan on the move to follow. This ensures they don’t forget any items or misplace some along the way. They pack the items in quality boxes and label them along the sides. The company then tracks the load in transit using real-time satellite technology.
- Straight-forward estimates: Moving companies provide their customers with clear estimates before conducting the move. They account for all your items, circumstances that may crop up and any miscellaneous expenditure. This ensures there are no surprises when moving. When conducting a self-move, most people do not account for hidden costs like fuel and permits which results in additional expenses that stretch your budget.

How to find a reliable mover in Florissant
Use professional moving associations to find a list of reliable moving companies. The American Movers and Storage Association is the most renowned and trusted moving association in the country. They have a list of over 3,500 companies operating within and across states. They train moving companies and monitor their activities to ensure they operate according to the set rules and regulations.
Check customer review websites for ratings on moving companies. Past customers narrate their experiences at the hands of moving companies on sites like Yelp. They give information about the company’s quality of services and customer handling. The best companies are rated above 4 stars and have little/no consumer complaints.
Contact several companies and ask them for their USDOT number. Run it on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association to check the company’s service history and compliance with government laws. All companies should possess:
- A registration certificate.
- Base level insurance set at 60 cents a pound.
- A household items moving license renewable after every two years.
- Little/no pending violations.
- A permanent physical address.
Ask for in-house estimates from at least three reliable companies and compare their rates and services. Choose the company with most services at affordable rates and a fixed delivery window.
Read the company’s moving contract and understand all the clauses before signing the agreement. Determine who is liable for any damages and the consequences for one party failing to adhere to the agreement. You can also consult a professional if you do not understand any chapter in the contract.
Make your move effortless in five simple steps
- Move with a steadfast moving company in the off-season. During the months of October to March there are fewer people moving which results to reduced charges and timely deliveries.
- Scale down your move by purging items you no longer use. These items use up unnecessary space and increase the moving cost. Donating them to a charity like Goodwill makes you feel better and you can use the receipts for tax relief.
- Pack your items in a smart manner. Use the same color of boxes to pack items from a single room. Fill the boxes to the top and label them along the sides.
- Create an inventory for all packed items and make sure it aligns with the company’s.
- Sweep the house for a final check and confirm no item has been left behind.
