If you’re Moving in 2017, Be Sure to Find the Best Moving Company for your Needs

2017 sitting on top of table in new homeAre you planning a move in 2017? Even though the New Year has just begun, there’s no such thing as too much time to plan out your move. After all, there are so many details and parts to a move that the more time you have to organize everything the better. This is especially true when it comes to finding a reliable and trustworthy moving company to help you out. There are a lot of companies to choose from, and you should be looking for the best company for the job.

In order to do this, you’re going to be calling several places to get moving quotes and estimates. After all, a well-informed customer is a happy customer. To that end, we want you to be able to compare each quote you get accurately so you can make the best decision. Just because you get quotes from several companies doesn’t mean that each one is providing you with the same level of service and support. You need to make sure that you’re comparing apples to apples. After all, if one company is quoting you a much lower price than the rest, they may not have included a charge for everything you need moved.

Another big factor in choosing the right mover for your job is brand recognition. Do they have a history of providing your fellow community members with reliable and top-notch service, or are people reporting problems with them? You don’t want to take a chance on a company that has a history of providing poor customer service or didn’t deliver on all the tasks that they were hired to perform. Check to see how long they’ve been in business, look over their reviews, check out their rating on the BBB, and look them up on the AMSA website.

An actual walkthrough will allow your agent to get a complete look at what needs to be packed up and moved, and they’ll be able to provide you with an extremely accurate quote based on this. If you’re putting all your faith in an internet broker simply giving you a rough guess on the moving costs, you might find yourself ending up with unknown and increased costs when the big day arrives. Here at A-1 Freeman, we make sure that every quote is a visual one, and we’ll work around your schedule to find a time that’s convenient for you to have a look at your job.

A professional, above board mover should never ask you for any money up front, either. Payment should only be requested after the job has been completed and everyone is happy. Often times we hear of fly-by-night operations that will demand a deposit and then disappear and are never heard from again.

Above all else, make sure that your contract is solid and that there’s no room for error. Your final quoted price should be what you’re paying for unless you initiate any last minute changes. This ensures that you aren’t taken advantage of, and any reputable moving company will not have any problem providing you with this.

So if 2017 contains an upcoming move for you, consider getting a quote from your friends at A-1 Freeman. We’ve been helping people move for decades, and we can provide you with a moving estimate that we’re sure you’ll find extremely competitive. If you find that you have any questions on anything, don’t hesitate to contact your representative and they’ll help you find the answers you’re looking for.
