Are you searching for the perfect moving & storage company? Many people are taking on the challenge of moving this summer. Whether you need a long distance moving & storage company to take your household possessions to another state or are wondering how much to tip movers, here are some tips on how to choose the right moving & storage company.
Choosing the Right Moving & Storage Company
- Find a reliable mover. A quick Google search for a local moving & storage company will get you a bunch of different results. However, what you want to find is a mover with a good reputation. Reading online reviews is helpful, but a recommendation from someone you know is even better. Ask coworkers, family members, or people who have recently moved into your neighborhood if they can recommend home movers.
- Get three moving estimates. Most movers will provide potential customers with a free moving quote. Some companies prefer to work with non-binding moving estimates. This means you’ll be charged based on the moving services and products provided by the moving & storage company and the actual weight of all your things once they are loaded onto the moving truck. A binding moving estimate guarantees the final moving cost and is based on the estimator’s quote once he or she has toured your living spaces and garage. The big advantage here is that there won’t be any surprises and will know exactly how much your move is going to cost up front.
- Which moving service is right for you? Depending on your budget and needs, hiring a full-service home moving & storage company means they’ll handle as much or as little of your moving checklist as you’d like. Choose from having the movers pack everything in your house and garage, only fragile items, or any combination of services. Professional movers know how to move your furniture without getting injured, and will disassemble your beds and then reassemble them in your new home. If you plan to put some or all of your household possessions in a storage unit, be sure to prepare your furniture for storage ahead of time.
- Moving out of state? It is never advisable to use a moving & storage company that cannot provide you with an operating license number and verification of insurance. This is especially true if you are hiring a company to move you across state lines. Ask for the moving company’s US DOT number before signing on the dotted line.
