How To Find The Best Moving Company?

Moving's a headache, right? But here's the deal: a lot of that stress can melt away if you find the right moving company. You're looking for folks who'll treat your stuff like their own and won't break the bank. Some movers just get your things from A to B, but others? They offer all sorts of cool services to make your move super smooth. Our tip: Take a little time to check out different companies. See what extra goodies they offer that could make your move way easier. We're here to help guide you through and knock a bit of that moving stress off your plate!


 

Do All Moving Companies Provide the Same Services?


Moving companies vary in what they offer. At the very least, they'll transport your stuff from one place to another. But a lot of them throw in extra services beyond just the basic move, though sometimes these extras might cost you a bit more.

 

Packing and Unpacking Services

Many moving companies offer packing and unpacking as optional services. While you can do this yourself, it's quite time-intensive. Professional movers are efficient and safe packers, allowing you to focus on other aspects of your move.

 

Supply of Packing Materials

If you decide to pack on your own, you'll need supplies. Check with your moving company as well as retail stores for packing materials. Moving companies often provide a range of materials at reasonable prices, including specialized options for uniquely shaped furniture.

 

Transporting Pianos and Large Items

Moving bulky items like pianos usually isn't included in standard moving quotes. This task requires special skills to avoid damage. Check with your movers about their ability to transport such items, and expect an additional fee for this service.

 

Storage Options

If you're unable to move into your new home immediately, some moving companies offer temporary storage solutions. They can keep your belongings in a storage unit or sometimes on their truck, and then move them to your new home when you're ready.

 

Assembly and Disassembly of Large Items

Items like pool tables and treadmills often need to be disassembled for transport and reassembled upon arrival. Many movers are skilled in handling this task, though it typically incurs an extra charge.

 

How to find the right moving company?

 

Local or Long-Distance?

First, figure out the scope of your move. Are you staying local (same city or zip code) or moving long-distance (across the state or country)? For international moves, you'll need a company specializing in overseas transportation.

 

Ask Around for Referrals

Start with online reviews, but also seek recommendations from friends and family. Neighborhood forums and online groups can be helpful too. Just watch out for overly positive or negative reviews. Don't forget to check the companies' ratings and licenses.

 

Call and Ask Question

Once you've got a list of potential movers, call them up. Ask questions to get a feel for their service and professionalism.

 

Gather Multiple Quotes

Talk to several moving companies to get quotes. Make sure they offer written estimates, detailing all potential charges and services. Remember, many quotes are non-binding, so the final cost could change depending on the actual size and complexity of the move.
