The Beginner’s Guide to Moving

Important Things To Consider When Choosing a Moving Company There’s no denying the fact that having to find a good moving company can be daunting. But doing a thorough research will make it all worth it. You may also want to shop around so you can save money and save yourself from scams. It would be best if you keep the following things in mind to help you hire the best moving company out there. It would be best if you start by getting recommendations by asking people whom you trust such as your friends, family, and even your real estate agent. Browse through your local phone book for any moving companies with offices located near your home. You should personally ask for the estimate of how much you will be paying if you move. You should never trust estimates given to you if they were not even able to take a look at the things you need to move. You should never assume that companies that are known to have big names are the best ones. Keep away from websites that gives you estimates but will offer to refer you to another mover. The rule of the thumb is that you should be the one to choose the mover yourself and not from numerous scams linked to these sites. The next thing you need to do is to conduct an initial screening. Once you’ve already come down to a few names on your list of movers, you should do a background check on all of them online. You should also see if there are other people who may have availed the services of these companies and what they can say about them. It would be best if you’re down to at least three or four companies and call them for an in-home estimate. If you’re going to move to another state, you should ask your chosen company to provide you with a written binding estimate, or better yet, a binding not-to-exceed estimate. Both of these estimates will give you guarantee of the cost that you have to pay for the company once you complete the move. While you could say that nonbinding estimates are legal, you will most likely to pay the final cost of more than what you’re given as an estimate. While interstate movers have the choice to charge you for binding estimates or not, there are lot of these companies who would just offer it for free. The estimate provided to you by interstate movers will base on the weight of the items and the distance where you will move the item. In case you’re not yet aware, moving within the same state may also have different rules applied. Some states would require movers to submit written and signed binding estimates while in other states, they forbid them to.Services – Getting Started & Next Steps
