Tips For Hiring The Best Professional Movers

With millions of moving taking place in the United States every year, it is no less than a miracle to have a smooth moving with no issues whatsoever. With so many moves, scams or shoddy practices have become quite common. Hence, it has become quite essential to hire a quality mover.

Following are some of the ways to hire the right professional mover for your quality move:

1

Don’t let your professional mover to phone it in

A large part of your mover’s price is based on the weight of your belongings and the space they occupy in the truck. Hence understanding this estimate properly is most important and it should be as accurate as possible. A reputable moving company will always take complete checklist and description of all your possessions and would determine the bulk and weight of your move.

Should look for more than a cursory glance

A good estimator will always ask questions about all the stuffs you are planning to take from your current place to the new place. An estimator who just performs a walk-through quickly without even noting the things you plan to take move is always going to be off the mark.

3

A large deposit should not be paid

When you pay in advance, you have no control over your belongings as to when you will see them again. You should always pay upon delivery. Reputable movers would never demand large deposit or cash before moving.

Always avoid the name switch

It is advisable to be sure that the moving company has a local address and all the information related to licensing and insurance. Some companies do business under a variety of names to avoid being accessed by the Better Business Bureau. Be sure that their employees answer the phone call with the full name of the business.

5

Getting references is the best policy

Get recommendations from your friends and family. In case they do not have recommendations, then get a list of reliable movers from associations such as State Association of Movers and American Moving and Storage Association. Asking for references from any mover you speak to is also a good option.
