Are you hiring the right moving company?
You’re moving and it can be extremely stressful! Luckily you’re doing the proper research to help your process. Although it is just moving there are so many factors that come into play when hiring the right moving company. Asking ahead a time for a proper estimate along with all fees and charges is always a good idea so you don’t get hit with any surprises on the day of your move. Here are a couple more tips to help.
What is included with your price?
Countless amount of people find a cheap price and get excited as if they found their golden ticket. However remember you get what you pay for and there is a reason they are cheap. There just simply isn’t a business out there that is successful and always the cheapest. We suggest getting three estimates and going with the middle price if reasonable. When receiving an estimate make sure labor, materials, gas, time, etc is all included. Lastly sign a contract so there is proper record that there was an agreement on the price provided.
Is the moving company insured?
This is a big one in the moving business. There are countless amount of companies that buy a box truck with a couple guys are start a moving business. It is important to hire a moving company with proper insurance to make sure you and your belongings are protected. Not only does it protect you but it shows that the company you hired is a real business and takes it seriously with experience. For instance say one of their workers gets hurt in your home you are responsible rather than the business without insurance.
How many people are in their crew?
It is important depending on the size of your move how large the crew is that will be arriving. If you are moving out of a complete house it is important that there is a sufficient amount of people that show up. Remember just because they are a business doesn’t mean that they are set up to do the job properly.
Do they have good reviews online?
Reviews are the new word of mouth. It doesn’t hurt to do a quick google search to check out their website and if they have good reviews. This is another great way to check out if the business cares about what they do. A nice website and great reviews goes a long way.
