Smooth Move!

September 27, 2012 - Updated: October 4, 2012

Moving is one of life’s most stressful events, especially when you consider that you’ll likely be trusting strangers to handle your valued belongs.

Keep these tips in mind when deciding on a moving company:

  • Talk to friends or family who have recently moved, and ask for references based on their experience.
  •  
  • Get at least three different written estimates, obtaining all the same details from each company. Find out if the movers provide insurance to protect your possessions against loss or damage. Pay attention to any limitations on their liability.
  •  
  • Ask how your belongings will be protected during the move – some movers have been known to skimp on padding, resulting in damage to your breakables and antiques. Remember, the company will not be liable for anything you’ve chosen to pack yourself.
  •  
  • Do some background research. How long have the movers been in the business? Can they provide references? Are they members of any type of movers’ association?
  •  
  • Timing is everything.  Try to avoid Saturdays and the end of the month moves if possible.
  •  
  • Don’t feel compelled to pay for higher-priced national movers in order to get quality service. For moves within a local radius, there are many movers that specialize in smaller loads and local destinations, who will likely charge you less.
  •  
  • If living in or moving to a high-rise home, remember to book an elevator well ahead of the moving date.
