If you have ever made a long-distance move, you know that it is a very stressful time. By equipping yourself with the right tools to decide on a moving company your move have be stress-free and memorable - just like you had imagined. Here are some tips on choosing the right professional mover for your job.
Ask for recommendations from your friends and family
If you have any friends or family that have made a long-distance move in the past, ask them who they chose. Also ask what their deciding factor was. Since you know these people on a personal level, you can feel at ease with the credibility of their recommendations.
At Express Moving Consultants, we do have a referral program. If you or someone you know has moved with us in the past, let us know! We can definitely help out with some added discounts on your move.
Do your research
The internet can be a goldmine of information - and on the same token there is a lot of misinformation as well. You can search any potential movers online but just be weary because unfortunately a lot of companies these days will post fake reviews to make themselves look better.
We are not saying that all reviews are bad but be smart when looking through certain review sites.
We have taken a different approach on all of this. We provide our customers with moving resources via our website, emails, virtual walk-throughs and phone. You can request pricing from us without ever talking to us on the phone - which we understand is important during your busy time of moving.
We are happy to help you look into other companies as well. Even if you don't move with us, we are here to help you make an informed decision and the best one for your move.
Meet with your movers - whether it be face to face or through a virtual call
You can get a lot of information about a mover online or from people you know. All of the information you can get from these sources can make your life easier as a mover, but instead of using other sources, why not ask them personally? Meeting face-to-face is a great way to check the legitimacy and credibility of a mover.
Once you have a time set to meet with the movers, here are somethings to remember to ask:
Ask how long is the mover operating or in the household moving industry. Usually, the longer the mover has been in the industry, the more experienced he is in moving. All of the things he experienced in the past can make or break the success of your move.
Inquire about their costs. Aside from the price of the moving expenses, ask if there are still other fees required from you. You should also know how these fees are computed and if any other factors affect the computation.
If you want your upcoming move to be hassle-free, ask if the movers offer packing services and storage facilities. With these add-ons, several responsibilities will be taken off of your shoulders, allowing you to do more in life even when you’re moving.
