Hiring a mover is one of the best ways to reduce stress during an already stressful time. Houston is a huge city, so how can you keep your Houston move simple? There are tons of movers to choose from. Who can you trust with all of your possessions? Here are some tips to keep your Houston move simple!
Don’t trust someone without verifying who they really are. It’s finally here! The day you move into the new home. The last thing you want is for someone to drive away with a truck of your belongings, never to be heard from again. Get referrals from someone you know. Check to make sure the company is a real moving company. Doing your research early will save you a lot of heartache later.
Get an estimate. No mover will know how much you owe unless they can see how much stuff they’ll be moving. Have three or four companies come in and give you a quote. This will save you from any surprises later and help you get the best price in town.
Do your research early. Booking a mover at the last minute means you might not be getting a good price. It also means you could be missing out on working with the best companies. Consider your options long before the big weekend to save money, time, and avoid companies that might be trying to take advantage of you.
Pack your belongings on your own. Hiring movers to pack your belongings can incur hefty additional costs. Movers may be responsible for damage to your belongings if they pack them, but any decent mover will take care of your belongings and ensure they make it to their new home safely.
