Moving to a new place is a difficult task in itself and hiring a good moving company is a tough chore. There are many movers in a city and some of them may even be near to your home, but the most difficult task is to find out the best one that can fulfill your requirements and save your money too. So you need to analyze everything very carefully while you move ahead to choose a moving company. Here we have some really useful tips below that will help you in choosing the best moving company.
Okay, the first step is very simple and everyone can do this in his or her routine. Ask your friends, family, colleagues about the movers they know or have used while moving. They will definitely suggest a better option because they may have used the movers services already. List those movers and also search for some more from the market. Once you have selected three or four movers, ask for quotation from each of them. There are several questions to ask from them such as the rate if you are going to pack partially or fully, what could be the unexpected expenses or what would happen in case of damage, etc. You must be ready for the all conditions that may incur more cost. If the condition is genuine, you will have for pay for that.
Screen your selected movers through moving bureau and associations, which are regulating, controlling and keeping record of these companies. Check about these moving companies through various websites and associations such American Moving and Storage Association to see if a moving company is a legitimate member or not. You can also contact Better Business Bureau to check if there are any complaints against them. This will help to have a background check about the company.
If you need to move across a long distance, ask about the time span and make sure about delivery date with any tracking option about your goods. Another great idea is to ask movers for on-site estimate for your goods like packing, loading, moving, unloading etc. If there are several fragile items or big stuff in your home, you must discuss the same with the mover in advance. Ask for any special deals as most movers have good deals like advance booking, off-seasons booking etc.
Lastly, don’t forget to have a signed contract with everything mentioned on it about pickup, price, delivery dates, packing services, policy regarding payment and insurance. You must get a customer service number from the company so as to quickly resolve any of your queries. Happy moving!
