FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

?

What is the best time to move?

The best time to move generally is the summer. Summer is the busiest season for movers though. Most people choose to relocate in the summer because of the favorable weather conditions. According to AMSA, some 32 million Americans relocate in the summer alone. Thus, imagine that the moving companies get extremely busy and if you don’t schedule your move in advance you may find yourself moving on your own. Therefore, consider moving in off peak season. Off peak season is usually the winter and late fall months. Or if you have to move in the summer try to schedule your move for the middle of the month when it’s not that busy and moving rates are lower.

?

How long in advance should I contact movers?

This is one of the most frequently asked moving questions. Often you don’t know when exactly you will move and thus you can’t schedule your move in advance. It is best though if you can start contacting movers at least a month in advance. The earlier the better because then you will have the time to research the moving companies and schedule your move for the desired day.

?

What is an estimate and how many should I get?

An estimate is an educated guess of the approximate cost of your moving. This educated guess is based on your inventory, the movers’ tariff and their experience performing the same type of moves – local or long distance. It is best that you get at least three moving cost estimates because that way you can compare moving companies and services rates. The more estimates you get the better idea you will have of how much your move may cost you.

?

How do I know if my movers are licensed and insured?

You can easily check if your movers are licensed and insured. This information should be available on the movers’ website, advertising materials and trucks. Whenever you call a mover, you can ask them for their DOT and MC license numbers and then verify them with the Department of Transportation and the local authority. If they are licensed, by law they have to offer limited liability protection. Some movers offer additional coverage as well or can refer to agents they work with if you need full coverage for your belongings.

?

How long will it take to move my home?

Every move is strictly individual and the time to complete it varies a lot. The time to complete a moving job depends on the size of your home, the magnitude of your household and the distance traveled. If you are moving a one bedroom, it may take up to three hours to pack, load and move locally. If you are moving long distance, depending on the size of your home packing and loading will vary and it may take up to two weeks to deliver your stuff. So, the time required to move your home will depends greatly on the type of your move and the size of your home. There are some factors like the distance from your front door to the moving truck that can additionally increase the moving time for local moves.

?

How much will my move cost?

This question again depends on the size of your move and the moving services you require. The best way to see how much your moving will cost is to get a free estimate. All movers offer free online or over the phone estimates. For local move you can even get an in-house estimate, which will give you the most accurate assessment. Thus, begin by contacting movers and be sure to tell them about every little piece intended for moving.

?

How and when do I pay the movers?

Question for movers about how and when to pay are some of the most important for many of us. Moving is not cheap service and thus you have to be aware of the moving charges. The moving company you end up hiring will give you all the details on how you can pay and if they require deposit. Most reliable moving companies accept most credit cards, money orders or bank checks and some even work with PayPal. Usually there is an initial charge (moving deposit) when you book your move and then when your goods are delivered, before movers start unloading you have to pay the rest. Stay away from companies that require foot big deposits in advance. The initial booking deposit usually should not increase 15% from the estimated amount.

I highly recommend this moving company. I called Fabio to pick up a piece of furniture for me. He responded almost immediately, picked up a large China cabinet, delivered it in perfect condition and placed it my home. Thank you to Fabio and his guys for a quick pickup, delivery and perfect placement.
