General Service Info
Whether you are moving your home and shifting within the city, or you are moving to another country, relocation can be highly challenging if you plan to handle everything on your own. The best approach is to hire a professional moving company that can provide efficient customized services as per your relocation requirements. Not only will you save time and money but you can also be sure that your belongings are in good hands.
A short summary of cost
How much moving companies charge you largely depends on how far your starting point is to your final destination, how many belongings you have, the number of trips required, and how difficult it is to transport your belongings. Depending on each company, prices may vary. On an average, you are likely to spend about $135, while costs can go as high as $280 and can go as low as $65. Movers will most likely visit your home to assess your condition and provide a quote.
How do I know which vehicle size I will require?
There are different vehicle sizes that moving companies can provide, depending on the number of your belongings or their size. Choosing the right truck size is critical because your cost will be affected by it, and your entire moving experience will be greatly affected by it too. Usually, three cubic feet of space in the truck is enough for one room. However, if you have any difficulty, you can always call up your mover and ask for help.
What if my belongings do not fit in the vehicle I have ordered?
If your belongings cannot fit in the vehicle that you have ordered, you can book another trip for your second set of belongings. This will be the same rate as before, and your belongings will receive the same amount of care from the same professionals.
What is moving insurance and do I need it?
Many movers provide what is known as moving insurance, which is insurance for your belongings in case they suffer any damages while they are in the care of the mover. This is an important insurance, because, no matter how skilled and careful your movers are, the truth is that accidents can always happen. So, if you want to ensure your belongings’ safety, it is recommended that you buy moving insurance.
Can I change my date of relocation?
Most movers accommodate changes in relocation dates. However, they often charge postponement fees if you change it only a few days before moving. Make sure to always call them and inform them of any change in dates at least seven days early.
What does a moving company do that I can’t do on my own?
Moving companies provide you with professional movers who have been trained in the field and have years of experience. Not only do they know the right way to pack and transport your furniture and other valuable items, they know how to care for them to prevent damages. Moreover, moving and packing materials like carton boxes, furniture wrappers and tapes of the highest quality are provided by the movers.
Will the mover provide packing services and provide their own boxes?
Yes, the mover will provide professionals to pack all your belongings safely and securely. They will bring all the materials they will need to get the job done, be it containers, boxes, wrapper, tape, etc.
Can the moving company make additional pick-ups or drop-offs for me?
Most moving companies accommodate such requests. All you have to do is make sure you enter the right addresses (where they have to pick up or drop off) at the time of booking. Make sure to ask your mover beforehand if they provide this service.
Will the moving company help me unpack once we reach the final destination?
Yes, the moving company will unpack everything once you reach your new home or your new office. After transporting all the boxes inside, they will unpack and put together anything they have dismantled (shelves, beds, etc.) for the move.
