Planning a move to a new home for your family is a huge logistical undertaking and very stressful. One great way to take a lot of worry out of a move is to hire a professional mover. However, not all DC movers are reputable or professional and a bad mover could turn your move into a terrible experience. Here are three tips to make sure that you find the right mover.
1. Do Plenty of Research
If it’s at all possible try to get a personal recommendation from someone you trust that has recently moved. Even if they had a bad experience at least you can remove that company from your list. Another great source of information is your local real estate office and they should be able to recommend some great movers.
2. Get Together a Shortlist of DC Movers
Your initial research should have provided you with a number of different companies to consider. At the very least the company you choose should be insured, licensed and bonded. You can carry out a deeper investigation by checking potential movers through the Better Business Bureau and a fantastic website MovingScam.com. If the DC movers has a large number of unresolved complaints don’t use them.
3. Get Three Estimates
Narrow down your search to the final three movers and ask them over to do an estimate based on the contents of your home. The understandable instinct here is to go with the lowest bid as we all love to save money. However, this could be a mistake as a lower bid could indicate that the mover is less experienced and does not value the service he provides. A good rule of thumb is to go with the middle bid as it will probably strike the right balance between value for money and professionalism.
