3 reasons why you need a moving company
- Recovery time: Moving is tiresome. The planning, heavy lifting and follow up can be draining. You need to spend a few days recovering after the move has been conducted. Moving companies ensure you have enough time to yourself after the move is completed. They have full-service moves where they pack, unpack and arrange your stuff. This is very convenient as you adjust to the new environment easily.
- Time: Moving companies know their reputation grows according to the speed in which they conduct a move. The company estimates the move and gives a timeline to deliver your belongings. They assign adequate labour and equipment to conduct the move. Trained employees and advanced equipment ensure the work is done fast. Dollies can move hundreds of boxes in fewer trips than your friends would. Ramps are used to connect the truck and ground for items to slide in much easier. The employees have worked together for years and hence understand the moving process extensively. They divide the tasks and work simultaneously along the entire day. They work in shifts to keep their energy levels and concentration high.
- Safety: Movers have the training to ensure they handle items in the safest manner. They exercise regularly to keep themselves alert when dealing with bulky and delicate items. They can move heavy items like pool tables and pianos with ease. They can also dismantle large furniture and move it in bits. Delicate items are wrapped in bubble wrap and packed amongst clothing. They are loaded into separate compartments in the carriers and strapped onto the sides to ensure they don’t bump into each other.

How to choose the best moving company
- Research: Perform a background search of the moving company. View the company’s experience and resources it owns at Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association. Enter the USDOT number and confirm the compliance and registration status of a moving company.
- Customer reviews: Moverreviews.com has forums for customers to review their experience with moving companies. They then rate companies according to the service delivery and assessment.
- Pricing: Request for price quotations from several companies and make a comparison. Moving companies provide low quotations to lure customers to subscribe to their services. The quotations have hidden charges and fines that are used to increase the final price. If you are unsure about certain terms and conditions, consult a professional.
What to do when moving to West Des Moines
Downsize your move before the walk-through is conducted. Some items are no longer useful and will only reduce the space in your new house and increase the price charged. Organize a yard sale and donate the rest of the items.
Use mobile packing apps for the best packing tips and professional packing services.
Scope the area in advance. New environments have different rules and regulations. Acquaint yourself with the locals and amenities to help you settle much faster.
Keep in touch with the moving company. Ensure they can easily find you in case the need arises.
Switch off utilities in good time and have them set up in your new house.
