While moving into a new space for a fresh start can be very refreshing and exciting, the moving process can be equally troubling and challenging. Aside from organizing and packing away all of your belongings and valuables, having someone else handle all of that loading, transporting, and unloading for you can be a headache. Make sure you’ve got a worthy moving company to handle all of your possessions to save yourself from moving day stress.
Check Your Options
Don’t hire the first moving company you find, unless they blow you away. You’d be surprised just how many of these companies are in existence, and each one of them has their own special way of performing the job to please their customers. What’s more, rates vary and others might just offer prices that are closer to your financial flexibility than others. Shop around and check your options before you sign any waivers or contracts. You can even opt to call and inquire to learn more about the service and whether it fits your preferences and needs or not.
Ask for Promos and Discounts
Moving companies often don’t advertise their promos and discounts in case a client wasn’t intuitive enough to ask about it so they can charge full price. To make sure you’ve got the best bang for your buck, try asking for available promos and discounts and see whether you’re eligible for these marked-down prices. Members of special groups that are affiliated with certain moving companies are almost always granted discounts, so see to it that you ask for affiliations in case you’re qualified.
Learn More about a Mover
Sadly, many moving companies see stressed, anxious, and troubled movers as opportunities to squeeze money as these people are often in a hurry to make the move. Before you say yes to a moving company, learn more about the service it has provided in the past and whether or not it has the certification or accreditation it needs to provide its services. Are they part of the Canadian Association of Movers? Check their credentials to find out if your mover fits the bill.
If the mover breaks or damages anything during the moving process, it’s their responsibility to answer for the costs of repair or replacement. Find out what the insurance covers, what they intend to do if in case anything breaks, or if you’re entitled to cash compensation should anything happen to your belongings.
