As you’re preparing for your move into your beautiful new place here at Springs at Fremaux Town Center, it’s probably a good idea to start looking for some movers. Working with an experienced moving company can take a lot of pressure and stress off of your move, but not all moving companies are created equal. Here are a few tips you can use to find a reliable moving company:
Seek Out Word-of-Mouth
While it’s easy to hop onto the Internet to look up reviews of moving companies in the New Orleans area, a more effective way to determine which moving companies live up to their promises is to ask your friends and family members for recommendations. You’ll find that those you care about will provide you with honest and upfront insight you can use to determine whether or not to hire a particular company.
Get Quotes in Writing
All moving companies offer quotes, but don’t settle for ones that aren’t provided in writing. You should be able to see every itemized service you’ll be paying for and exactly what you’ll be charged so that there aren’t any surprise bills to pay once you’re moved into your new apartment. It’s important to be clear about the amount of belongings you plan to have moved, and make sure that nothing is overlooked or left off of your quote before agreeing to sign a contract.
Consider Packing Supplies
While almost all moving companies provide customers with packing supplies, there is typically a fee charged for each item that is used to pack your belongings. Boxes, tape, bubble wrap, and more can really add up when you aren’t in control of how many supplies are being used for the move. Be sure to get a price list for supplies from movers so you can find the best deal. You may even find that buying your own supplies will save you some money in the long run.
Before deciding which moving company to hire, make sure to ask for a few customer references, and take the time to actually check them. You might be surprised at what previous customers have to say about a particular moving company, versus what the company itself claims their customers say.
