Moving services can vary in almost every way, not only do they provide vastly different services and features in different locations for different types of clients, they can also vary greatly in performance. This is unfortunate, mainly because moving time is stressful for most people, and in many cases people are at their most vulnerable – it takes a lot of trust to put your belongings in the hands of strangers. In this post, we will discuss the criteria you need to use to assess whether the moving service you have chosen is right for your situation.
Will they move your belongings to your new location?
One of the first things you will need to assess is whether the moving service you have chosen will move your belongings to the desired location. If your moving service only moves within a local city or state and you intend to move out of country, then this obviously won’t work for you. If you live in a place which is known for its difficult terrain, certain moving services might not be equipped to handle the trip, so make sure you work with your service of choice to find the best solution for you and your family.
Do they provide appropriate moving boxes?
One of the problems with moving all of your belongings in traditional moving boxes is that they are ultimately not as secure as you’d think. Traditional moving boxes often collapse under heavy weight, don’t stack effectively, can get soaked with water and have to be thrown out after a single use. Companies such as Frogbox provide plastic, reusable moving boxes that stack and are waterproof, they are extremely useful for the moving process, they’re also environmentally friendly. If you have a lot of valuable items and want to ensure their safety, it might be worth considering a moving service that provides appropriate boxes.
Do they provide a ‘Full Service’?
If you, like many other parties hiring a moving service, have a family with multiple school and work obligations, it can be difficult to coordinate all aspects of a move. One of the best ways to ensure that the whole process is taken care of is to to hire ‘full-service’ movers. Make sure that the service you are thinking of offers these features before you confirm your booking. If you are a smaller party and don’t need to have your belongings packed and unpacked for you then a smaller, less comprehensive service should work.
Do they have a good reputation?
This last one applies to the situations of ALL movers. As a client, you should never settle for a moving service that has a reputation for poor quality of service. Depending on your location, you are going to want to weigh up your options and single out the solution that’s right for your unique situation. Good moving companies will accommodate whatever your situation is, but poor ones will not. At the end of the day, enough research and preparation can greatly increase the chances that you will have a good experience more often than not, and the decision is in your hands.
