Hiring a mover

Hiring a mover

When you move your home and belongings, you want to know you can trust the mover you have hired.  The tips supplied here can help you feel confident that you have hired the right moving company for your relocation.

One of the best place to start when you hire a mover is to get recommendations from friends, family and co-workers.  Of course checking with the BBB and industry organization such as the American Moving & Storage Association is a given.  Even asking your real estate agent may be of help in finding the right moving company to trust with all of your belongings.

When you call the mover, do a screening.  Go to the Better Business Bureau online to see if there are any complaints or other issues that may make you trust the company less.  Also examine three to four movers before making a decision.  By looking at more than one company you can determine the one that has the best pricing and also the best reputation.

It is usually best to have a professional moving consutlant come to your home to determine the exact cost of the move.  Online quotes are helpful for the initial consideration of a company, but you definitely want to lock down the pricing before you complete the hiring process.

Examine the different estimates you receive and pick the one that has the best price and conditions.  For instance, will you be charged double if there is an extra day added on due to the moving truck breaking down?  The point is that you need to consider more than just price when hiring a mover to avoid more expenses.  The Moving Consultant will work with you on each of these questions.
