How Does Our Website Work?
Since Best-Movers is not a moving company or a moving broker, you may be curious as to how we help you to find the moving companies that are going to meet your needs the best. We are connected with a broad network of top-tier moving professional in order to streamline the process of getting estimates, selecting the services you need, and choosing the company to carry out your big move.
When you start looking at the factors involved in putting together an estimate, you want to be sure that you have a fairly solid understanding of what is involved in giving you the most accurate estimate possible.
Here are a few of the things that you want to be sure to include when it comes to providing complete information on your estimate form:
Location and Distance of Your Move
Where are you coming from and where are you headed? Not only is it important when it comes to gas and wear and tear on the vehicle that is doing the moving, but there are a few other things that may be involved as well.
If you’re moving to a city, you may have to deal with issues like tolls and parking fees. There are special types of insurance and licensing involved for moves, and the movers will need lodging, food, and pay as well. These all play a role in how much you may have to pay for your move.
What do you want out of your packing services? Do you want to do it yourself and then let the moving company deal with driving the vehicle between your current home and your new one? Or are you going the complete other direction and you want them to do full-service packing, from getting your items into boxes and then loading them in and out of the van or truck and unpacking them into your new home?
There are options for that and everything in between, so you want to be sure that you know what you want, what you can handle, and how much you may want to spend in order to get someone else to do the labor part for you.
The amount of packing services that you’re looking for and the extent of what you want them to do is going to play a significant role in just how much that you’re going to pay. Not only that, but it will also give the mover a good idea of how many resources (time, labor, etc.) that they will have to put into your specific job. Knowing ahead of time what packing services you want will allow the moving company to be more accurate in their estimate and to provide you with better guidelines too.
Weight/Amount of Items Being Moved
This is something that is going to require a little more work on the part of the moving company. In many cases, they will offer an in-home estimate so that they can get a better idea of what it is that needs to be done and how they are going to be able to take care of everything.
With an in-home estimate, they are going to be able to work out the quantity of goods to be moved as well as start calculating things like what sort of vehicle that they will need, how much gas will be used to transport that number of items, and how they may want to proceed with making everything work out properly.
These estimates are normally obligation free and you won’t need to worry about what it is that you’re moving. The agent will come in, look at all that you’ve got in your home and talk with you about what you’re taking and what you may be getting rid of before the move.
The estimate will be based on those numbers and, based on what sort of estimate that you get from them, you will be able to make a decision as to what you will need to do, how you may have to budget, and how you can work out everything related to getting your move completed in a way that makes sense for everyone that may be involved in the process.=
When Your Move Needs to Be Completed
There are some times of the year that are busier than other times and, because of that, you want to be sure that you keep that in mind when you’re getting ready to move. If you’re looking at a period of time around the beginning of the college year, you will notice that it’s a little more difficult to get moving vehicles that can meet your needs.
It’s also common for people to move in late December/early January because they start a new career during those months. Obviously, it’s not the same everywhere, but it’s common for those times to be backed up with long-distance movers.
Another consideration that you need to make is the weather. You may have to pay more based on hazards and such that may come up in the Northern areas due to winter weather hazards. While that isn’t always the case, you will find that some companies may want a little more in their estimate due to the potential weather delays and risks that may come up during those times. Keep that in mind when you’re starting a plan for when you want to move and where you are headed with your move as well.
