What should I look for when hiring movers?
This is one of the most commonly asked questions we get from buyers and sellers as they prepare for their new adventure. We have compiled a list of the top 7 tips for hiring movers.
1. Moving Inventory
A reputable moving company will take inventory of all your belongings and determine the bulk and weight of your move. The estimator should be thorough and check all of your storage places such as cupboards, drawers, garages, and bookcases. A large portion of the mover’s price is based on the weight of your belongings and the space your goods take up in the moving truck. Be sure you understand this estimate and that it is as accurate as possible.
2. Get a Thorough Walk-Through
An estimator who performs a quick walk-through without taking note of what you plan to move is going to be off the mark. A good estimator will ask questions about what you plan to take from your current house to your next home. Be sure you are prepared to tell the estimator which items you don’t want on the truck such as items you plan to give away, donate to charity, sell in a yard sale, or leave behind for the new owners.
3. Don’t Pay a Large Deposit
Reliable movers won’t demand cash or a large deposit before your moving day. You should only pay upon delivery. If you pay in advance, you have no control over when you will see your belongings again. When you do pay, use a credit card to help protect you from possible fraudulent activity.
