Moving Company - The Perfect One For You!


How do you know if the moving company you need is right the one for you? Good question and one you will need to do some research on also. There are several things to check on, but if you do your homework, you will know which moving company will do a great job for you and your family.

Moving company base prices are decided by an interstate (between states) or intrastate (within your state) body. With different rules and regulations, you have to compare the efficiency and reputation of a moving company to help you find out how close the quoted price is to the total cost. Confused? This means there is usually a difference with all moving companies between the cost (quoted) and the price (actual). What you need to do is be able to figure that out to the best of your ability.

Here are a few more ideas for you as well, as you are looking for a moving company. Take some time to find out if you want to do a self-service move or a full-service move. What does this mean? The self-service move means the moving company will transport your goods from point A to point B – but you pack and unpack all the boxes. Yes, you can save some serious money this way. Please Note: cargo insurance on self-serve moves is limited to $25,000 and only covers damage caused by disasters like crashes or fire.

The full-service move means the moving company not only moves all your stuff from one house to the next, they also pack and unpack it. While there is no doubt you could do your own move, a company with highly trained professionals could do a much better job of moving heavy items.

Whatever outfit you do select, whether or not you are doing it yourself or going with a full-service move, get a written cost estimate. Understand however that if the estimate is not binding, the actual final cost might be different. Do not deal with a company that is not licensed.

Some other hints and tips that will help you select a moving company are:

• Phone the local better business bureau and check their record for complaints
• Visit the local company and speak to the owner
• Do not invite anyone to your house to do an estimate until you have done a background check

Also make a list of other things you need to check that will affect the cost of your move with any potential company you want to hire. You have to know about packing costs, either they do it or you do it, and leave the hardest things to pack to the professionals.

Ask about disconnecting and reconnecting appliances. The moving company might do this for you, but they do charge to do this.

If you are well prepared with questions, it will not take you long to decide on a moving company for your moving adventure.
