Moving from one place to another – even if it is just to a different house in the same city – is a huge undertaking and one that can easily turn into a headache if you don’t have the right moving service. Thankfully, there are many great moving services out there that will move your belongings swiftly, safely, and professionally. It is vitally important to make sure you find the best mover possible. Today we will take a look at four important things to think about when hiring a moving service so that you can find and hire movers with confidence.
1. A GOOD MOVING SERVICE WILL HAVE PLENTY OF EXPERIENCE
It is extremely important to look for a mover that has a good amount of experience. Your possessions need to be packed and handled with the kind of care that only experts can bring to the table. Recommendations from people you know and trust are great for this because if a mover helped your aunt move ten years ago and did an excellent job, chances are that they will be a great fit for you as well. You can also check out the moving service’s website, as many companies will put a ‘In business since…’ on their front page. For more information, many online resources can also be found on the Matco website.
2. A GOOD MOVING SERVICE WILL OFFER APPROPRIATE COVERAGE
Insurance is a must have as you move because expensive furniture can be broken and small valuables, if not packed properly, can slip through cracks and become lost forever. In the event of such an unfortunate circumstance, proper coverage will often do much toward easing your mind. When you hire a mover, there will already be a certain amount of coverage available, but it is a very small amount and you would do well to ask your chosen moving service about additional coverage for expensive items.
3. A GOOD MOVING SERVICE WILL BALANCE PRICE WITH QUALITY OF SERVICE
One of the reasons that moving can be such a headache is the expense of hiring a mover. Moving your belongings can cost upwards of a few thousand dollars and so many people search for the very cheapest moving service available. However, this is not always the best idea, as some cheap moving services will provide labour that matches their price – labour of lesser quality. But a good moving service will work hard to find the lowest possible price while still providing the highest quality of service. Again, recommendations from friends and family can be of great assistance in finding a mover that will help you move in an inexpensive, professional way.
4. A GOOD MOVING SERVICE WILL BE RELIABLE
A good moving service, one that you will enjoy working with will, will be prompt to answer questions, phone calls, and emails. They will always show up on time and they will move your possessions exactly as promised and for the price they promised (provided no unexpected problems or expenses come up). Please do not settle for anything less!
