Movers – Getting Started & Next Steps

      Comments Off on Movers – Getting Started & Next Steps

Finding the Right Moving Company Moving is tough enough, even without the hassle of finding a dependable moving company that can handle all of your possessions. However, if you take note of the following guidelines, the entire process will be much easier: Request in-home visual estimates. The moving companies have to see what exactly must be moved so they can offer precise quotes. If you wrap up an inventory using the Internet or phone, you will definitely miss certain things, affecting the final costs you’ll be paying – and you’d rather not spend your moving day disputing the final price.

This will give you a concrete idea of the going rate. Don’t pick the first mover you seem to like, and by all means, avoid the movers that are way cheaper than the rest. Too low rates are a sign that shortcuts are being taken, or that they’re hiding some of the charges. Go with a mover that has a local presence. Whether they’re locally owned or an agent of the large van lines, they’re more likely to visit your home to conduct a visual estimate, and you will be able to check them out personally in their office to see how professional they look. And take note that if your move is local, dealing with a local mover makes damage complaints, if any, much easier to handle following the move. Verify the mover’s licensing. When moving intrastate, ask your local state authority about its process for regulating movers. For interstate moves, the Department of Transportation can provide the information you need. Call the Better Business Bureau and ask if there are unresolved complaints about a certain mover you may be considering. Also request for client referrals (business referrals may be more reliable compared to personal referrals because they usually engage in repeat business with the mover), and use the Internet to search for reviews. When the movers come to your home for a visual estimate, don’t think twice about asking questions, and make sure you are satisfied with the answers they give you. But you would like to ensure that they’re not only telling you what you would like hear just so they can win your business. What you should watch out for: > Companies that promise to send you your things right on the date you want them You should instead be given a time window, knowing that there’s no predicting what happens. > Movers that don’t thoroughly explain your options for moving insurance Even if you don’t want any insurance, you need to have a good idea of what it is or what it can do for you before you decline. > Movers that are happy to match a suspiciously low price another is offering
