How to Find Reliable Movers:
Over 42 million people move in the U.S. every year. That’s an amazing 1 in 4 adults. A person will make over 7 moves in their lifetime. Studies have shown that moving ranks as the third most stressful time in life. Even though we may be excited about the move, there can be mixed emotions about leaving behind a familiar neighborhood, close friends and fond memories. On top of all this we don’t want to have the added stress of wondering if PDS is going to handle our possessions with care.
Finding the right Lawrence moving company can make the whole process a lot easier, but it may not be as easy as it sounds. It’s not just a matter of picking up the phone book and searching under “moving companies”.
To begin with there are a lot of different types of moving companies from those that limit their services to local moves to those that will help you relocate across the country or even to another country. So the type of move you are planning and even what you need to move will determine the type of Lawrence moving company you’ll need to hire. A moving company can offer you a wide range of services on top of simply moving your furniture and other belongings. They can provide you with packing boxes and other materials, help you with the packing, provide temporary or long term storage if needed, and even unpack everything for you once your belongings arrive at their new home. These services will cost extra but it’s good to know they’re there if you should need them. Pricing can vary greatly from one moving company to another, providing you with very different estimates for the exact same move. Going with the lowest quote may leave you wondering if your belongings will arrive safely in the end.
Where to Look for Reputable Movers:
Start by simply asking people you know. Almost everyone has gone through a move at one time in their life, so all you need to do is ask around among your friends, family and those you work with to a few recommendations for a quality moving company. Talk to the real estate agent that helped with the sale or purchase of your home. A realtor can usually give you some good recommendations based on the experience of their other clients. If you're planning a local move, look for moving vehicles that are working in your city. You know there’s a reason why they’re so busy if you repeatedly see the trucks and vans of a specific moving company.
Check the internet. Most moving companies have a website that will list their services, years in business, geographical areas that they cover, and even work sheets to help you get an idea of what it will cost you. The website will also contain their physical address and phone number as well as an email address so you can contact them with any questions. You can also use the internet to do some initial background checking on any moving company.
Getting a Quote from PDS:
After you compile your list, it’s time to call the Better Business Bureau to determine if anyone has ever filed a complaint about one of the companies you have in mind. Considering the volume of business a Lawrence moving company handles it’s not unusual for a company to have a few complaints, but the important thing is to find out exactly what the complaints were and if they were taken care of to the customer’s satisfaction.
Before talking directly with any Lawrence moving company, it’s a good idea to make a list of how many rooms you have and if you have any large pieces of furniture that might require extra work or care to move. Don’t forget to include the garage or any patio furniture. You don’t need to be exact. It’s just to give us an idea of what to expect.
Making Your Choice:
Comparing bids can prove to be confusing. The prices can vary greatly as well as the services offered and the methods used in pricing. You’ll find that while one moving company may charge by the load, another may charge by the hour or even by the room.
After you’ve talked with every prospective Lawrence moving company on your list and taken time to consider their quotes, you can make an informed decision as to which moving company you trust to move your belongings. Moving can definitely be a very stressful time. The last thing that anyone wants to worry about is careless movers or lost or damaged belongings. Whether you’re moving down the block or across the country, you need to find a reliable company that you know you can trust.
