Moving has become a business. Movers and moving companies have sprouted like mushrooms everywhere. Differentiating good companies from the opposite is a challenging mission. There are so many to choose from that it becomes difficult to find a reliable moving company, one that can be trusted with personal and valuable belongings.
Narrow down the choices by listing the services you need and by looking for companies that offer those services. Choose several moving companies, not just one. Get quotes from at least three to five movers.
Movers are easy to find, what is difficult is finding a mover that can carry out the task satisfactorily. The internet is a good place to search for moving companies. Some sites offer lists of moving companies you can choose from. Almost all companies have a website where one can find company descriptions, services offered, contact information, free quotes, the address of the company and some even offer discounts. For those who do not have internet access, a phone directory would help locate local movers. Not to worry because local movers also have the capacity to offer long distance moving services. The relocation department of the office could also serve as a reference. While references from friends and family with personal moving experiences could be used only as a second reference.
It is always best to thoroughly research a moving company before booking their services. This would lead you to save on cash and avoid scams from rogue movers. If you found moving companies from the internet, try to read customer reviews, after which, look for the address of the company. Visiting warehouses and surveying about the company is also advisable.
Do not choose the cheapest or the most expensive mover. Look for quality service instead. Going cheap might cost you more when the company holds your things hostage or when you get scammed. Going expensive is not good either because there are many moving companies that offer reasonable prices for satisfying services.
Ask movers to specify the services they offer. Ask about additional payments. Inquire whether there would be extra charges for moving furniture up and down the stairs or for using the elevator. One could also ask how and when the company offer discounts.
Remember that there are risks involved with moving. Damage and lost furniture are among these risks. To be on the safe side, hire a company with an insurance policy. Do not forget to read their policies so as you would know what to expect from the move.
Hiring a moving company could help ease the burden of moving to another home, however it does not mean one would not do anything for the move. As owner of the furniture and as a customer seeking for pleasing services, one should do the planning and preparation for the move. Although packing could be done by the movers, one should always double check the house for unpacked items.
