Creating A Beautiful Moving Experience

When my boss told me that I would be moving a lot for work, I didn't really understand what he meant. I thought he would want me to move once every few years, but he really meant that he wanted me to relocate about once every six months or so for the entire rest of the time I worked for the company. Af first I was pretty upset about it, but after a few relocations, I realized that it was actually a great opportunity to see new places and meet new people. I made this blog to create a better moving experience for everyone out there.

3 Things to Do Before Hiring Movers


Is this your first experience hiring a mover? You likely have a few movers to choose from—and you're not sure which contractor will provide you with the right level of service at a price that fits your budget. If you're ready to start the search process, take a look at the top things to do before you hire a moving company.

Make Sure You Need to Hire a Pro

A professional moving contractor can reduce your stress level and take care of the heavy lifting. This means you'll have more time and energy to devote to your move, family, work, or life in general. 

Even though there are plenty of benefits to hiring a mover, some people may not need this service. If you only have a suitcase to move or can fit the few items you've packed inside of your car, a DIY approach will do. Homeowners and renters who have furniture, boxes, bins, and bags, can't lift/carry heavy items, or don't have a large enough vehicle will need to hire a pro.

Talk to Friends or Family

You're dreading the big ask—and so are your nearest and dearest. It isn't always easy to ask friends or family members to help you to move. If you don't want to inconvenience those closest to you, don't have friends/family who are physically able to help you move, or don't have friends/family who live nearby, you need to ask your loved ones a different question.

Instead of, "Could you help me to move?" you will need to ask your friends and family, "Who is the best mover to help me?" References and referrals from people you know and trust can help you to narrow down the moving contractors in your area and find one that is reasonable and reliable. 

Interview More Than One Mover

What happens if your co-worker recommends one company, your best friend refers you to another, and your mother-in-law gives you the name of a third mover? It's likely that your friends and family members will recommend more than one contractor. Even though getting multiple referrals may seem like a challenge, it may increase the odds of hiring the best mover for your needs.

Before you agree to an estimate, interview two or three different contractors. This gives you the chance to compare experience levels, services, and prices. Ask each contractor for information such as basic fees, services they offer (such as packing or full-service moves), potential extra fees, and the type of estimate they provide. 

Contact movers in your area for more information.
