More than forty million U.S. citizens move every year. That amounts to 1 in every 4 adults. Most people will move several times in their lives. Research has shown that relocation ranks third as the most stressful event in a person’s life. Moving can be a disruptive time in anyone’s life. We might be happy about moving to a new home but there can still be a lot of emotion involved in leaving the old home, neighborhood and close friends. The last thing we need to worry about is if a Glenside moving company will deliver our belongings safely on the other end.
The right Glenside moving company can take a lot of stress out of the moving process, but finding one may not always be simple. It will involve more than just flipping through the pages of the phonebook. Moving companies can be quite diverse in the services they provide. Some companies may only work locally while others are national or even global. The Glenside moving company you choose will have a lot to do with your specific type of move.
A Glenside moving company can offer you a wide range of services on top of simply moving your furniture and other belongings. Some companies will often rent or sell you all the packing supplies you’ll need for moving, assist you with packing up your belongings and help with the unpacking once your things get to your new home. While these added features will cost you more, they can be a great convenience.
The quotes you’ll get from each Glenside moving company might be hard to compare, since they can be based on different factors. Going with the lowest quote may leave you wondering if your belongings will arrive safely and in the end
Begin by asking the people you know. Almost everyone has gone through a move at one time in their life, so all you need to do is ask around among your friends, family and those you work with to a few recommendations for a quality Glenside moving company. If you used an agent in buying your new home, try asking them for a recommendation. Your real estate agent might be able to provide you with some good information from feedback they get from some of their other clients. If you’re move is local, keep a look out for moving trucks working in the area. If you repeatedly see the trucks and vans of a specific Glenside moving company, you have to know there’s a reason why they’re so busy.
Use the computer to search the web. A lot of moving companies have websites that can provide you with information about their services, what cities they cover and an online estimation sheet to help you determine before hand how much your move will cost you. You can get their address and phone number as well as an email address if you want to ask any questions. The internet can also help you do some background research on any Glenside moving company you might be considering.
Once you have your list of moving companies in hand, contact the Better Business Bureau to find out if any of the companies have had any complaints filed against them. Even a very reliable Glenside moving company can get the occasional complaint due to the mass amount of business they do. The important thing you need to know is what the complaint was and how it was resolved.
Make a list before you call any Glenside moving company. Include the number of rooms, any over sized or uniquely shaped pieces you might own and remember to include the things you have stored in the garage or utility building as well as any lawn furniture you might have. Your list doesn’t have to be very elaborate but it will help you convey to the Glenside moving company what you need to have moved.
The different estimates can be confusing when you try to compare them. Rates can vary a lot in the business and since companies use different methods to calculate their bids, you may end up with some very different numbers. One company may charge by the room, another by the load and still another Glenside moving company by the hour.
It's important that you get all your Glenside moving company quotes in writing and to make sure that you completely understand how they are calculated. Look closely at the fine print. You need to know what your options are should there be any damages. If you pack your belongings yourself and something is broken, some companies won’t pay for it unless it was due directly to their mishandling.
Once you have some information on each Glenside moving company and compare the bids they have given you, you can then narrow your choice down the one Glenside moving company that you feel will do the best job. Many people really do find moving to be very stressful. So the last thing you need to deal with is incompetent movers or damaged possessions. It doesn’t matter whether you’re moving near or far, you need to find a Glenside moving company you feel certain will safely move your possessions for you.
