It is no secret that moving companies can improve the moods and stress levels of those involved with making a big transition and relocation, but do you know how to determine which moving company is the best fit for you and your needs? In this blog post we will introduce 4 basic ways to pick movers that will benefit you and be helpful during your approaching move.
1. Know your needs: Understanding your needs is step one in your search for quality movers. For both residential and small business movers in the Bay Area, consider calling at least four moving companies and schedule a minimum of two in-home written estimates. These calls and estimates will help ensure that you are receiving the best rate of service in relation to your personal moving needs and budget.
2. Expect a “not to exceed” bid: To ensure that you will keep within the parameters of your budget, be sure to ask each moving company for a bid that includes all related packing materials, labor, valuation insurance coverage of your choosing and storage if applicable.
3. Go with your gut: Do you trust the mover? Do their references check out? Are they licensed, bonded and insured? The moving industry in the State of California is regulated by the Public Utilities Commission. To protect yourself and your precious belongings, be sure to check all potential movers out with the P.U.C.!
4. Do your homework: Check on moving companies with the Better Business Bureau or on Yelp. Does the company have a good rating or do they have an excessive number of complaints? Are the complaints reasonable? Were they resolved? Asking these types of questions during your research will prevent a bad experience later on that could have been prevented.
