Jan 23, 2020 | Residential Movers

One of your most exciting moments in 2020 so far? Getting the chance to move to a new home. One of the most stressful moments so far? Getting the chance to move to a new home. Choosing the right residential movers will provide for excitement and take the stress away.

The reality is, around 66% of people cite moving as one of their most stressful life events. So, if you’re dreading your upcoming move, you’re in good company.

The good news? Hiring the right residential movers can make your moving experience a cakewalk.

Here’s a rundown on how to choose the most affordable residential movers without sacrificing dependability and quality.

Let’s get started!

Gather Quotes

Before settling on one residential mover, be sure to collect in-home moving estimates in writing from a minimum of three companies.

If a company appears to have an unusually low quote, be suspicious of this business.

Likewise, avoid using a company that refuses to send you a company representative to take a look at your moving job first. This company may actually be a scammer.

Check out Reviews

Be sure to also take a look at what your potential mover’s previous clients have said about the company before hiring them.

The company may include reviews on their website. Look for reviews that point to the movers’ punctuality and quality service, for example.

Also, make sure that the company has an excellent rating with the Better Business Bureau

Get a Comprehensive Walk-Through

Make sure that your moving company estimator completes a complete walk-through, not a quick one.

For instance, the estimator should ask you questions regarding what you intend to take to your new home from your current home. Which items will be going with you versus being left behind, sold at a garage sale, or donated to charity?

The answer to this question will have an impact on the cost of your move.

Look for Insured and Licensed Residential Movers

Finally, make sure that your potential mover is a licensed interstate mover according to the United States’ transportation department. Also, make certain that your company is insured.

If you hire an insured and licensed mover, you can rest assured that they will follow established guidelines related to financial responsibility and safety measures, for example.

In New Jersey, the company you choose needs to be operating under the state’s public warehousemen and movers board to be a truly trustworthy hire.
