Although it is frequently used, word of mouth is not enough to choose your company. A move is not the other, needs no more, and better to choose for yourself by taking your information. The online site offers companies renowned for the quality of their services, classified by region. Visit their sites to know the details of their services and do not hesitate to ask for several quotes, always given free. From the Tampa moving company this is one essential service that you can go for.
What criteria do you have to be attentive to?
Start by determining your needs and the volume to be transported. Will you be alone on the day of the move or will you have help from several people? In the first case, a team of several men will be needed. Do you have furniture to dismantle and are you able to do it alone? Do all your possessions pass through the door, the staircase and the elevator? If this is not the case, you will need to ask the company if it provides a lift service to get your furniture through the window safely.
We also advise you to use a company located in your area : it will facilitate the various contacts, the home visit and the delivery of the estimate. That’s why our site lists the different providers by province to make your search easier.
When to contact companies?
We advise you to ask at least 3 different quotes before you decide. Do not choose the company one week before the move date: the best providers have busy diaries and may not be available in an emergency. A period of one month (two in the summer and at the end of the year, the busiest periods) is much more cautious to have the time to compare quotes and meet the different providers. In fact, they will come to your home to determine the volume to be moved, the number of men needed, the time to work, the equipment to use (such as a lift), etc. It is on the basis of this information that they will be able to give you a detailed and personalized estimate, without surprises.
What must a moving quote contain?
If the quote is not detailed enough and contains errors, distrust: you risk a bad surprise when you receive the invoice. A professional company will mention the following information: day and time of the move, shipping and destination addresses, distance in km, number of people present with the hourly rate, vehicle size, estimate of the total duration, details of the services. For example, if some of your furniture needs to be disassembled by the movers, this must be mentioned in the quote along with the price. The insurance covering the damage caused during the move must already be included in the total price.
Whatever the company of your choice, find out about its references , the number of years of experience and any specializations , for example if you have to move works of art, a piano or heavy objects.
If the company is an Authorized Member of the Belgian Chamber of Movers , it means that it is committed to abide by a charter of quality established according to several criteria that you can consult here . This approval gives you many guarantees on the quality of the service offered and we can only advise you to take it into account in your final choice.
