Whether you are moving within your own city or to the other side of the country, the transition to a new home is a big change. You have many things to think about while you prepare to set up house in a new location. You may be so overwhelmed by thoughts about your new job or finding a school for your children that you forget one of the most important aspects of your journey, the move itself.
Very few people enjoy the physical work of moving. Packing and carting your belongings to a new home or office can be time-consuming and exhausting. Many individuals decide to hire a moving company to lighten the burden of the moving process. Be sure to keep the following in mind when choosing a moving company.
Does the moving company have experience?
Ask the representative of the company you are considering hiring about the amount of experience the movers have. You should look for a company that has provided reliable service for at least five years. If you are interested in hiring a new company, be sure to carefully check their references. You can check Angie’s List for consumer reviews of moving companies.
Ask for a quote.
Every reputable moving company will be happy to provide you with a free quote. If you need to have large or very fragile items moved, be sure that a company representative visits your house and looks at the items. This is the best way to ensure that you get an accurate quote. Remember that heavy items may add to the cost of the move.
Understand what is included in moving services.
Be sure that you understand the terms and conditions of a moving contract. Clarify whether or not you will receive help packing and unpacking. Ask if the moving staff will place furniture in designated rooms or if you will be responsible for doing so yourself.
