Why you need a moving company

Reliability

The reliability of a moving company stems from the employees and equipment. A moving company that has been in business for years knows the industry very well. They know the areas prone to accidents and find solutions to problem.

They are disciplined and arrive on time, pack and deliver the items promptly. The items are packed and loaded efficiently hence slim chance of damage. They have an inventory that confirms the location of each item.

They are audited and monitored by organizations like BBB to ensure they provide consistent and exceptional services.

Affordability

Moving companies have reasonable moving rates to attract more customers. They ensure minimal expenses to make the final cost affordable. If you have a load moving in the same direction with another customer, they consolidate the loads and reduce the fee charged.

Moving a mansion using a self-move would probably take numerous trips. A moving company performs it in a single trip.

Movers work in quick shifts and have good packing experience. This reduces chances of additional expenses due to delays and use of excess supplies.

Reduced likelihood of accidents

A moving company has the skills to conduct a safe move. They have wraps to cushion fragile items and winches to move very heavy items.

They can pack glassware carefully with clothing and safely load the boxes with zero accidents.

How to find the best mover in Lake Forest

Check the company’s performance at Better Business Bureau. The organization has business profiles of all movers.

The Illinois Motor Vehicle Department licenses the transport sector. They inspect moving vehicles and ensure compliance to the set standards. A reliable moving company has new vehicle which are modified to improve safety and performance.

Moving companies in the state must have a valid IDOT number from Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.  They display the authority, safety and resources a company owns. If a mover has many accidents in a year, their safety rating is poor. Likewise, if the company doesn’t resolve complaints, their reliability rating is lowered.

Moving companies who are members of IMAWA have a higher reliability rating. They have the experience and expertise to provide remarkable services.

Simple tips for a successful move

  • Choose a desirable moving company. You can opt for a full-service move, where the company handles packing, unpacking and arranging.
  • Get free quality packing materials like corrugated boxes, tapes, labels and markers from com.
  • Sort out your stuff and sell or donate junk. Items lying in the garage, kitchen and bedrooms for years and are not used will only add to your load.
  • Pack weeks in advance beginning with the room with rarely used items as you progress to the room with daily essentials.
  • Pack items like toiletries and clothes in a first night bag. This will save you from rummaging through boxes looking for essentials.
  • Make a copy of the movers’ inventory after loading all items. This is necessary to claim compensation in case of damage or misplacement of your items.
  • Update your change of address at I am moving. Tip the movers fairly and offer refreshments after the job is completed.
