No doubt you may want to take a much-needed change and move houses. You might be considering moving to your newly acquired home or probably you are thinking of upgrading to a bigger, better office across town, or pick a smaller, affordable one. Chances are high you will need the services of home movers to help with relocation to your new destination.
Rest assured your greatest task would be to find the most reliable service providers to help you move into your new home. While the yellow pages may offer valuable listings of both local and distance moving companies, getting the most effective moving company can be very challenging. Here are the costly mistakes you should avoid that will help you get good movers to ensure the transition is smooth.
Always ensure you get quotes from at least the top three reputable movers in your locality. It is actually advisable you have up to five movers to allow you make a thorough comparison on the terms and conditions, estimates, costs, etc.
The other costly mistake you could ever make is to commit to service even before the movers visit to see what needs to be moved. This is to be able to review everything that is being moved and provide an accurate moving estimate. It is also an opportunity to see to it that the mover sees all that is being moved such that by the end of it all, the inventory they quoted beforehand should match all the things that were moved.
The other costly mistake to ever make is to settle for the most affordable moving company. Rogue service providers tend to lure clients with special deals, low costs and such like enticements so be watchful and ensure the quotes are within the range of what the average of all service providers are offering.
You should know by now that hiring movers is not an easy task, so you had better arm yourself with all relevant questions that you need to be addressed. The last thing you would want is to have regrets when the damage is done already especially if you had the chance to ask the questions. While at it, you might want to ask about the extra costs that different moving companies might charge and which apply to your situation. For instance, some movers may charge you extra to carry stuff up and down the stairs. Packing supplies cost for items that are not well packed, or even not having a close parking area where the moving truck will be packed are other additional charges you may incur.
