When searching for a moving company, customers are always attracted to the lowest rates. But in most cases, it’s more sensible to avoid the mind-blowingly low prices and choose a company based on the value you’ll recieve for your money.
In addition to fair prices, keep these in mind when choosing a moving company:
Insurance or no insurance?
A cheaper moving provider offers either limited or no insurance, which significantly lowers the end price but heightens the risk of damage, loss or theft.
In this case, cheaper isn’t always better, because accidents happen. Limited insurance covers only certain damages, while full insurance covers any and all damage—from vehicle accidents, weather trouble, lost items, theft, etc. Full insurance may slightly inflate the end price, but it gives a guarantee that your items will be safe.
Trained movers or just strong arms?
A cheaper moving provider wouldn’t spend resources on training staff in advance, or teaching them to handle odd items correctly. Not preparing the moving technicians in advance can start a chain-reaction of other problems.
Choose a moving provider that trains its movers in advance, before letting them handle customers’ valued possessions.
Specialized moving service or simple transportation?
A cheaper moving company wouldn’t offer many additional services, such as piano removals, antique and fine art moving, storage, furniture assembly, etc. These types of additional services can be a crucial part of the moving process.
Choose a moving company that offers these services at fair rates, and that knows how to combine them to make the moving experience as smooth as it can be.
To sum things up …
When we look at the big picture, it becomes obvious that cheap solutions can cost you BIG in the long run.
