Choosing The Right Moving Company

Sep 14, 2008
Deciding about the moving company is one of the most important decisions you need to make when you are plan you are relocating your stuff. Although you can relocate your stuff on your own but hiring a moving company make things much simpler and easier. You need not worry about getting the vehicle for shifting, labors to load and unload, pack your delicate items etc.

The moving company takes up all the pain to relocate your possessions safely to your new destination. But getting a right moving company that does all this without creating any problems as well without loading you with hefty bills is difficult. So when you plan to hire a moving company to relocate your stuff, do a good research and shortlist at least four to five moving company that you think can do a good job for you. Once you have the list with you, the next step is to get moving quotes from each of the moving companies. Here are some points that can help you decide the moving company that will be perfect for you.

TAKE ENOUGH TIME TO DECIDE: It is advisable that you take enough time researching the company back ground and analyzing the moving quote given to you before you go for the services of the moving company. Book the movers well in advance so that the moving company has enough time to send in the representative to your place and give you the estimated cost of shifting. It is should be remembered that the moving quotes are just based on the average weight of the items that you provide to the movers. The estimated cost of moving can be obtained once the movers come and see your stuff personally.

TAKE ESTIMATES IN WRITING: Make sure that the moving company agrees to give you every thing in writing. According to the FMCSA i.e. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association, every consumer who books a moving company is entitled to have a copy of the estimate. The estimate should clearly mention as to what will be the charges for transportation, loading and unloading, packing etc. If the moving company agrees to give you any kind of discount, it should be mentioned in the estimates clearly.

ADDITIONAL QUOTES: If you want some additional services from the moving company, ask for the additional quote well in advance. Sometimes the movers charge very high for additional services such as packing and packing materials, if your house does not have a parking space the company may charge extra to get a van to shift stuff to nearest parking lot etc. Make sure that you clarify these points well in advance and take additional quotes so that you are not levied with extra charges in the end.

So if you take care of the above points you will definitely be able to get a moving company that takes up all the stress of relocating your home or office for you at a reasonable price.
