Should I Move Myself or Hire a Professional Movers

Image
To have a stressfree move, you should plan ahead for the unexpected. Moving to a new residence can bring a lot of uncontrolled complications.

Many of do it yourself (diy) moves go as expected. Moving yourself is the most inexpensive way to move. On the other hand, the least expensive way isn't always the very best way. Moving yourself might be tricky if things go wrong and end up turning into a moving nightmare. In many cases, you depend on people to help you and they don't show up. The other concern is if you or your helpers injure themselves trying to move a big item.

For people with specialty items like grandfather clocks, artwork, antiques, pianos, pool tables, etc you will require special equipment to move it. Make sure you consider that the money you save by not hiring a professional moving company could end up being spent on repairs. These large and valuable pieces may get ruined while moving or induce damaged walls, floors and more.

Be Cautious When Getting Online Moving Quotes

Image
The procedure of finding an excellent moving company can seem to be overwhelming. But performing a little research will probably be worth it. By doing some research, you can cut your costs and prevent online scams. 
Ask close friends, coworkers, and local realtors for referrals or suggestions for reliable movers. We recommend that you request to have an in-house estimate completed. Once you’ve shopped around, you should have at least 3 moving quotes. If the moving company is unable to come to your house to do the estimate, ensure that they have photos and dimensions. Never trust an estimate where the mover has no idea of what to expect.
Cross check each company’s name on Google. Use their company name, address, telephone numbers, e-mail, and website to find feedback. Look for moving company reviews.  Get the names and contact info for the company’s references. Find out if they are an actual business. Make certain the company you select will be moving you themselves rather than outsou…

Tips to Make Moving Environmentally Friendly

Image
Moving is a stressful time for many.

Unfortunately, the process of moving can also take a toll on the environment. From the gas involved in transportation to the fact that people tend to throw away a lot of things during the move, the environmental impact can be surprisingly high. Even the package materials can create a lot of waste in the process of packing and unpacking.

Here are some tips, you can make your move much more eco-conscious:

Donate Instead of Throwing Things Away

People tend to throw lots of things into the garbage or take things to the dump, even though items may still be in good condition. The reason for this is simple - it’s often the path of least resistance.

The problem is that these things end up in a landfill. One way to reduce your environmental impact during a move, especially if you are downsizing or getting rid of a lot of things during your transition, is to donate as much as you can.

Find a Community Centre near you or other similar charity. The process is very c…

The Difference Between Movers And Brokers

Image
The Internet has made it super easy to get in touch with professional moving companies.  Getting a moving quote online is easier than ever before. However, do you know if you are contacting a moving company or broker?
Moving brokers are not professional movers in the sense that brokers are neither authorized nor licensed to transport household goods because they don’t own any moving trucks, moving staff, moving equipment, or packing supplies.
In reality, moving brokers act as middlemen between the customer (the individual who is moving home) and moving company (the business entity that will complete the actual transportation job). Brokers are trained sales teams that will arrange for the transportation of your household items and then will try to sell your booking info to an actual moving company that may provide the actual truck transportation.
Moving companies are the professional moversthat make the real household move. They personal their very own fleet of branded moving trucks, …
