How to choose the right moving company

You have bought a new home and are looking forward to starting a new life there; however, before this can happen, you have to move all your possessions out of your current home.  Packing up everything you own and trusting a moving company to safely transport your possessions to your new home can be an overwhelming prospect; however, it does not have to be stressful providing you hire the right firm.

There are a number of tips that can help you when it comes to choosing a professional moving company to help you with your move.  One good tip is to start looking for a company as early as you can; you should be hunting for a moving company when you put your current home up for sale, or even before.

Asking for recommendations from friends and family members is a good way to help ease any worries you may have.  After you have narrowed down your choices to just three potential moving companies, call each of them to ask for a quote.  The hourly rate is likely to vary between companies, and most companies will have a minimum charge.  You should confirm if the relocation price quoted is inclusive or if you will be expected to pay more for valuation, packing, crating, fuel and/or mileage, etc.

You should ask to see evidence of the valuation coverage offered by your moving company, as no one wants to arrive at their new home and find that their possessions have been damaged during the move. if the goods are damaged, it’s good to know the items have been covered to some extent by valuation coverage.
