Hiring Professional Movers? Here's What You Need to Know
So you're moving, and you think that you'll need to hire movers? Well, here are some things that you should know when considering your options:
Start looking early. About six to eight weeks should be an acceptable gap between the day of your first call and the day that you want to relocate. If you call any later than that, it may be difficult to secure the schedule you want. Or you might have to pay extra.
Check the movers' license and insurance. If you want to hire a professional, make sure that you're hiring an actual professional by checking whether they are licensed by the state. Also, check whether they have any insurance that will cover your goods, just in case they misplace or damage any of them during the move.
Compare and contrast. Check out as many moving companies as possible, so that you can get the best deal in the market. While you're doing this, however, don't forget to read the fine print (or inquire more thoroughly about their offers). This way, you'll be sure to get what you're paying for, without any sudden disappointments or unexpected fees.
