Selecting a reputable and affordable relocation company is important for every type of move. It is even more essential for long distance moving. The expenses involved, the tension, deliveries across far distances, these all require the skillful hand of a great moving company. In this new Alpha Moving and Storage blog post, we offer some explanations about locating the best and most suitable movers for your long distance relocation.
Making Sure You Are Dealing with a Reputable Company
Don’t waste your time getting an estimate from a moving company before checking its reputation. Before your initial call, you should check with the Better Business Bureau, look into the moving company’s physical location and make sure all licensing information is available to you.
Receiving the Best Possible Estimate
Prepare your inventory in advance. This will make the initial estimate process much easier. If you can, prepare an additional list detailing all your packing needs. Most movers will be able to give you an initial idea of the costs so you could know whether or not you want to continue to the next stage and ask for a company representative to come to your house and provide you a more accurate written estimate.
The Importance of References and On-Site Estimates
It is highly recommended to have a moving company representative come to your house and provide you with a written estimate. The estimator will be able to look at your goods, offer you accurate prices for moving and packing and assess any parking or access difficulties.
Ask the moving company to provide you with references before making your final choice. A reputable company should always have relevant references to offer potential customers such as yourself.
