Why you need a moving company

No hassle

Moving companies are very convenient. They handle the most difficult tasks ensuring that your items are safe and you aren’t injured when conducting the move. Moving companies ensure you have extra time to conduct other moving activities like changing addresses and switching supplies.

They also provide additional services such as:

  • Full-service moves (packing and unpacking included)
  • Temporary storage in accessible warehouses
  • Disassembling and reassembling furniture

They work systematically such that when some are packing, others are loading and delivering.

The right equipment

Moving companies have equipment that can safely handle all your items. They know the type of equipment to use after conducting the walk-through and it is operated by professionally trained personnel which further increases its efficiency.

Movers use quality corrugated boxes to pack items. They are strapped on the outside to ensure they can hold heavy items.

The company has dollies, ramps and jacks used to move items from the house to the moving vehicle. Dollies can move multiple stacked boxes in a single trip which could otherwise take several hands for a trip.

Straight-forward estimate

Moving companies use a true estimate when conducting long distance moves. They conduct a walk-through before providing the estimate. They include all items, labour, materials and extra fees. This is convenient since you can formulate a realistic budget.

You do not have to worry about additional fees on moving day when working with a moving company.

How to find the best mover in Grinnell

Search for intrastate movers at Iowa Moving and Warehousing Association. Movers are strictly assessed before registration. The best moving companies have over ten years experience.

Search customer review sites such as Yelp and Moverreviews.com. The verified sites have thousands of customer reviews. They are among the best known consumer rights advocates. They also educate the consumers about moving and recommend the best moving company.

Use the USDOT number from FMCSA to verify:

  • The safety rating from the crashes section
  • The company’s physical addresses
  • The number of trucks and drivers a company owns
  • The validity of the household items license

Ask for quotations from different moving companies and make a comparison. Compare the prices charged against the services offered. Scrutinize the estimate especially where the delivery window, payment policy and binding contract are mentioned. If you do not understand any clause, seek clarification.

Tips to make your move smooth and swift

Scope the new premises in advance. Measure the doorways and staircases to ensure your large furniture can easily fit. Make friends with the new neighbours and learn the rules and regulations.

Procure and rent moving supplies from U-Haul.com. Reduce the moving cost by exchanging and getting free moving supplies.

Downsize your move by selling items you no longer use. They reduce the hauling efficiency and increase the moving cost. Alternatively you can donate them to friends or Goodwill.

Before you begin packing, separate personal items and utilities and move them yourself. Make copies of important documents and save the rest electronically.

Change your address and update it at I am moving to reach over 1500 businesses. Also remember to notify relatives, colleagues and neighbours.

Cancel deliveries and subscriptions a week before moving.

Clear out the fridge, drawers and cabinets and confirm nothing has been left behind.
