Planning tips for simpler moves

If you are moving your house, you will inevitably have to involve a third party – most likely a professional moving company – to help you with items such as grandfather clocks, pool tables and pianos that you could not possibly move on your own.  Which moving company should you pick and how can you make sure it is trustworthy?

Prior to selecting a professional moving company you need to have done your homework.  Make sure that you know the method of charging that is used by the moving company you are considering going with, as some may charge by how long it takes to move your items while others charge by how great a distance the goods are being moved to your new home.

Making a mistake in the choosing a moving company can turn the whole experience into a serious ordeal, so it is crucial to make the right decision.  When the estimator from the moving company arrives at your home, be sure to judge them on factors such as their level of professionalism, their responsiveness to your questions and their attention to detail.  Make sure that you get quotes from at least three different moving companies in order to ensure that you get the best possible service at the best possible price.

Once you have decided on a moving company, the next thing you need to do is to request its brochures in order to learn about your own responsibilities and rights when making a move.
