The search for a reliable mover may prove to be a tedious one indeed. Each simple internet search yields dozens, if not hundreds of results. Index websites send out your information to as many as six or even twelve movers. With so much information and so many options, how do you get an estimate from a reliable home mover? Read this new Alpha Moving and Storage article for all the answers.
First, you need to know how to search. One of the best ways of finding a reliable home mover is a good old fashioned one – ask your friends and relatives for recommendations. A personal recommendation is often the best. If you still need to go online to search for movers, be sure to check each one’s address, licensing information and Better Business Bureau reputation.
Select between three to six moving service providers. Our recommendation is to ask each of them to send a representative to your house to provide you with an on-site estimate. Such written estimates will be the most accurate. Also, the personal touch is important. Having a reliable representative you can count on is crucial for conducting a successful and cost-effective move.
Even after receiving your written estimate, be sure to communicate any changes to your relocation consultant. This is especially relevant if you have any inventory changes. If you reduced your inventory or purchased new items, be sure to pick up the phone and give your relocation consultant an update call.
