It has come to be that time of year again. Moving season is upon us and the time to start hiring movers, and the kids are getting out of school. The days are getting longer, the sun is out and the warmer weather is here. With this great combination comes the busiest time of year for local moving companies.
Tips And Tricks On Hiring Movers
Here at Brothers Moving & Storage we are prepared to help you with your upcoming move and hiring movers this season. I will give you some information on how to deal with local moving companies, and how and when to book. Brothers Moving & Storage wants to be your moving company when you are moving internally, down the street, or across the state.
Hiring Licensed And Insured Movers
Here are some tips when you get started looking for local moving companies and hiring movers. What you want to do is be pro-active. First thing to do during the busy moving season is to give moving companies enough lead time. In the busy season moving companies do book up very fast. The beginning and end of month are always the first to fill up. Make sure you are giving your moving company plenty of lead time. When you start calling around for estimates from moving companies always make sure that you are using a licensed and insured moving company. Ask for a US DOT number from the moving company and checking them out on safersys.gov. This website will show you if the company is licensed and insured to do local moving in your area.
Checking Reviews When Hiring A Moving Company
Now the next thing that you want to do is to research the moving companies for your local move when hiring movers. You can do this by looking up the reviews. Brothers Moving & Storage encourages customers to do your research. Always look up the reviews, price is not always what you want to look at for moving companies, sometimes the cheapest rates mean that you get what you pay for. With Brothers Moving & Storage you will always get professional movers, our movers work for us, we never hire day labor and our crews always go through constant training to make sure that the customer is getting the best customer service as well as a professional move.
Beware Of Hidden Charges
More things to look for when booking your move during the busy moving season. Make sure that your local moving company is not hiding any charges. Make sure that you ask the companies you are calling if there are any hidden charges (ex: bulky articles, stairs, long carry, elevator, extra stops, etc). With Brothers Moving & Storage we are upfront with all the charges that you would be paying for your move.
Watch Out For Those Scammers
Busy moving season means that you the customer need to be more careful when hiring movers. This is the time of year that moving companies try to take advantage of customers that are looking for movers. As a customer you want to make sure that you are following many different tactics so that you do not fall victim to scams. Brothers Moving & Storage is also an advocate for you, if you have any questions always feel free to contact us.
