Five Questions to Ask Before Choosing a Moving Company

Some questions to ask before hiring a moving company:

1.      Experience

Choose a moving company that has experience in moving specialty items such as antique furniture, gun safes, and pianos, in addition to standard residential items.

 

2.      Cost

Choose a moving company that provides you with upfront rates. A moving company should give you a fair estimate of costs (such as fuel, insurance, size of truck, and long-distance moving). You should also get estimates in writing for accurate information. The estimate should include the delivery dates, address of both of your locations (new and old), cost per hour, approximate number of boxes, and the size and value of additional moving supplies.

 

3.      Storage

Many people often require storage while moving to a new place. Choose a moving company that owns a storage facility so you don’t have to look for a separate facility for storage. Make sure the storage containers are properly insulated and safe. You can opt for long-term or short-term storage depending on your needs.

 

4.      Equipment and Supplies

Confirm whether the moving company will be using their own equipment and resources or will be hiring sub-contractors Also, ensure they will have additional moving supplies on hand during your move (such as moving boxes, packing paper, bubble wrap, and blankets) to keep your belongings safe and to avoid chaos on your moving day.

 

5.      Insurance

Make sure the moving company is insured in case of damage or mishaps to your belongings during relocation. Talk to your moving company regarding the type of insurance they provide and whether any additional insurance is required.
