Choosing The Right Moving Company for Your Next Move
Moving to a new home or apartment can be extremely exciting. However it can also be stressful, tiresome and chaotic. Many of us have moved and know that wrapping glasses, plates, kitchen ware in general is never fun. The good news is that a good portion of your move can be outsourced even if you are relocating so you don’t have to lift a finger.
By outsourcing your moving responsibilities, you can spend more of your time focusing on the layout of your new home, setting up utilities and getting everything organized for the move. The only tough part is finding a professional Jacksonville Moving Company that you can trust. Below are several tips to help you choose the best movers available.
Ask Family & Friends
Word of mouth is a great first step in the process of choosing a moving company, as family and friends typically would not steer you wrong. Receiving a recommendation from someone you know means that they received quality service and a positive experience from the moving company they are recommending. According to a recent study, over 92% of individuals trust recommendations from family and friends.
Do Your Research
Living in Jacksonville we have a lot of moving companies that you can choose from, however not all movers offer the same quality service. When going through the process of choosing a moving company, look at several criteria (years in business, reviews online, members of associations, price, licensed & insured and salesmanship). A quality moving company will have longevity – years in business, they will have a lot of positive reviews, they will be members of associations or organizations, they will be licensed and insured and they will be able to answer all of your questions in a friendly and professional manner. Take all of these factors into consideration prior to making a decision.
Make Sure You Have a Contract
Everyday people are scammed by moving companies that are less than honest. Always make sure you get a contract from the moving company. Make sure you have specifics in writing as to the services they will be offering you for your move and a final cost for those services. In the event a moving company tries to add more fees that were not agreed upon you have a contract you can reference.
An easy way to avoid these types of scenarios is to hire a legitimate, reputable moving company. All reputable movers will be forth coming in providing you any information you want as it relates to referrals, licensing, insurance and moving contracts. If a company will not provide you with this information take your business somewhere else.
