3 Things to Know Before Hiring Movers

Why use professionals for a local residential move? Learn more about the benefits.

Hiring professionals for a local residential move is pretty common, but it’s different from hiring a company to ship your goods across the country. Everything from packing to pricing structure might be different. You want to know exactly what you’re going to get before you set a schedule.

Here are three things to keep in mind before hiring your local movers:

1. Find a company that provides comprehensive moving services.

If you’re too busy to move your own goods from one local place to another, you are you to need a moving company that can offer packing and shipping services. The moving pros will show up, pack your items for safe transport and move them exactly where they are supposed to go in your new home. No more worries about finding enough friends to lift your heavy couch or taking months to unpack all your boxes.

2. Accurate estimates require detailed information.

No moving company can give you a guaranteed quote online or over the phone without detailed information. For an accurate quote, they will base their prices on packing needs, miles moved and time spent completing a job. The quote you get online based on the number of rooms in your home or total square footage could be very different from what you end up paying. It’s always best to call and request a written quote before you schedule moving service.

3. Take advantage of short-term storage if necessary.

Does your lease end before your new place is ready? No worries! The right moving company will also offer short-term storage options. At Nilson Van & Storage, we can split your shipments and deliver certain items while storing others for the time being. Our moving services are completely customized to provide you with the best solutions for your situation.
