Traditionally, people have lots of questions about the moving process. And of course, it’s incredibly important to get the answers to all of these questions before to get started.
Today, we’ll provide you with the frequently asked questions and give the answers to them. Take advantage of our FAQ page to prepare for a move in the best possible way.
So, let’s get started.
When Is It the Best Time to Move?
Summer is a great time to move. Summer has good weather conditions for relocation. That’s why the vast majority of people choose to relocate in summer. However, moving companies are usually very busy during the summer months. So, you may find it hard to hire movers during the peak season. In this case, it would be better to schedule a move either for fall or winter. Moving companies are not busy and that’s why rates are lower during that period of time.
What to Look for in a Moving Company?
You must be very selective when it comes to picking a moving company. Give a preference to reliable movers, who have built a solid reputation on the market. So, spend some time and check moving company’s customer reviews. Plus, you need to ensure that movers of your choice are licensed and insured. Get an initial consultation with movers and make sure that they can meet your needs. Lastly, you need to pay an attention to the price. Ask movers to provide you with a service quote.
How Long Does the Moving Process Take?
It all depends on such factors as the size of a move as well as distance. Let’s say that you are moving locally. In this case, you will be able to relocate within 3 hours. However, you must be prepared that the moving process will take 2 weeks and even more time if you are moving the long distance.
What is the Approximate Moving Cost?
Unfortunately, it’s impossible to get the answer to this question without the initial consultation with movers. The cost of a move depends a lot on the moving type. You should contact movers and get an estimate in advance. During the consultation movers will analyse your moving needs carefully and then tell you exactly how much your move will cost. Don’t forget to ask movers about hidden fees to avoid unpleasant surprises in the future!
When Do I Need to Contact Movers?
It would be better to schedule a move and get in touch with movers ahead of time. As we have already mentioned, moving companies can be busy. So, the earlier you contact movers – the better. Do your best to contact a moving company at least a month prior to moving.
