Moving is a big deal and something that requires a lot of work. If you plan to hire a moving company, you want to hire one that is reliable and trustworthy. There are many moving companies out there to choose from, so here are a few steps you can take to find the right one for you.
- Get Three Estimates. You want to get at least three different in-person estimates from different moving companies. You want them to be in-person because no company can give you an accurate estimate without seeing your belongings. These three estimates will give you a good idea of the price range you are dealing with.
- Ask Questions. Make sure you are asking questions about what is included in the price. You don’t want to be hit with unexpected costs on moving day. Here are some questions you should ask: Does the company pack everything or is that something you have to do yourself? Will the company provide boxes and other moving supplies? Is fuel an extra cost or is included?
- Get Referrals and Read Reviews. Get referrals for moving companies from family and friends. Having referrals for companies from people you know and trust is a great reference to go on when making your decision. However, although your friends and family might have had a good experience with a company, there are others who have not. Make sure to read reviews online to try to get a better idea of how a company treats its customers.
These three steps will help you with your search to find the right moving company. If you are ready to start looking for a moving company, call us at Port City Movers today and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
