A Comprehensive Guide on How to Find a Moving Company
Trying to find a moving company can be difficult and frustrating, but with good knowledge about what you need, it might be easier.
Look for reviews from customers, and check their Yelp page or website thoroughly before choosing your mover. This way you can be sure of the quality and reliability of their work.
Figure out what type of move you’re making: local, long-distance, international?
If you are looking for an interstate mover, check with your local Public Utilities Commission or Department of Transportation to find out if they regulate that kind of move in your state. Once this is confirmed, contact them directly about what requirements need to be met and how much it will cost before hiring any company without a license.
Licensed companies have insurance coverage that protects both customers as well as themselves from damages caused by moving services rendered during transit. This means that there is more accountability on behalf of the movers, leading to higher success rates when moves are completed successfully!
Keep in mind the exact number of items you will be moving, how many employees your company is bringing in for the move as well as any specific concerns or requirements.
When hiring a mover, make sure to get estimates from licensed companies with good references and ask lots of questions about their services!
The three most common types of estimates are free (included when receiving other services), hourly and fixed cost. The latter is based on how much space your belongings will take up in inventory as well as their weight and estimated time for completion. Hourly rates vary depending on location which can fluctuate due to congestion levels at any given moment during business hours or population density per square mile. A free estimate may be less costly than this type but keep in mind there could also be hidden fees such as travel costs associated with coming out to give an estimate if not specified otherwise.
It’s smart to make a list of all belongings including their approximate weight (in pounds) when speaking with potential movers so accurate pricing can be determined.
Movers are required to provide you with a binding estimate in writing, so make sure they do! And once again- it’s important that the final price matches what was agreed.
