One in four people in this country move every year. That’s an astounding forty two million people on the move. Most people will move several times in their lives. It has been proven that the third most stressful time in a person’s life is when they move. 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. We don’t need the added burden of being fearful about entrusting everything we own in life to an Austin moving company.
A qualified Austin moving company can take away a lot of the stress involved but it’s not always easy to find one. It will probably require more than searching through your local phone book. You’ll discover that there are a variety of moving companies catering to specific needs. Some companies will do only moves within a limited area. Others will move you anywhere in the country or even internationally. The Austin moving company you choose will have a lot to do with your specific type of move.
Larger moving companies can also provide you with other services that can be invaluable during your move. Companies will often have boxes and other packing supplies available and can provide assistance in the actual packing and unpacking of your belongings. These optional services are offered in addition to the move itself and will cost more but it’s good to know you have access to them if needed.
The quotes you’ll get from each Austin moving company might be hard to compare, since they can be based on different factors. The lowest bid might not be your best option if you value your belongings.
You can start by simply talking to people. There’s hardly a person that hasn’t moved at some point in their lives so just start with friends, relatives and work associates. They’re likely to know a good Austin moving company . You might also try talking with the real estate agent that worked with you in locating your new home. Based on the experience of their other clients a realtor can usually give you some good recommendations. Keep a look out for moving trucks working in the area. Usually the most popular Austin moving company is the busiest and therefore the one you will see around town the most often.
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 Austin moving company you might be considering.
Before contacting any of the companies directly, you should call the Better Business Bureau to find out if any of them have any negative reports on file. Even a very reliable Austin 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 Austin 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. It’s not important that the list be detailed. You just need to have it to help you explain to the Austin moving company what you’ll need.
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. Each Austin moving company has their own method of estimating what they will charge, from by the hour, by the load to by the room.
Be sure that you understand how each Austin moving company puts together their estimate and that everything is written in detail. Look closely at the fine print. You need to know if you have any recourse in the event that any of your possessions are damaged. If you decide to pack your own boxes, many companies will refuse to accept responsibility for any damages unless it was due to direct neglect on their part.
Having your Austin moving company estimates in hand, you can then make comparisons and choose the Austin moving company that you believe will provide you with the best service. Moving can indeed be a very stressful time for many people. You don’t need the added stress of worrying about damage to your possessions at the hands of irresponsible movers. In the end when you see the moving van pull away from the curb, you want to know you’ve chosen the right Austin moving company to get your belongings safely to their new home.
