What to Look for in a Professional Moving Company
There are many things you need to look for in a mover, and the list goes beyond a team of movers and a fleet of trucks. Hercules Movers meets all the following requirements and more:
Insurance and License
Having insurance and being licensed is critical for any moving company. This lets potential clients know that their belongings will be safe, and if there is damage, it will be covered. Damage can happen anywhere. It can happen during loading, unloading, or actual transport. You want to make sure they will be able to remedy any damage that might occur. They should be able to give you a copy of their license at the time of your meeting with them.
Moving companies usually have a variety of equipment. Whether you are doing a residential or commercial move, you need to make sure they have what they need. This includes making sure they have the vehicle size you need, the manpower needed, and the ability to transport specialty items. When doing a commercial move, you may have computer equipment that is delicate. You need to make sure the movers know how to package them and move them without damaging them. Even a residential move can demand special packing.
Clear Quotes and Predictable Pricing
To make sure you are going to get everything you need, for the price you want, you should be very specific when requesting a quote for your move. Ask questions and be upfront about all the packing supplies, moving help and other services you need. During the process of getting a quote, you will also be able to get a sense of the moving company and if they are a good fit for you. A quality company will have the expertise to evaluate your possessions and all the things you need moved and give you an accurate quote based on their experience and knowledge.
At Hercules Movers, we believe in giving clear and predictable pricing. We’ll help you plan your move with no unpleasant surprises when you reach your destination.
Services and Knowledge
Every move is different, and movers need to have a lot of knowledge and experience to get the job done safely and without damage. Depending on the move you are making, you may need a specific company with the expertise to accommodate your needs.
For instance, if you are moving long-distance, the moving company needs to know all the rules and regulations of various states. Additionally, if you have an international move, the moving company needs to make sure they know those laws to make your move successful. You want to make sure your belongings are protected and get to their destination safely. If the company does not abide by the regulations, your possessions can be detained, and your move might be delayed.
At Hercules Movers, we pride ourselves on following the best practices in the moving industry. We do our utmost to offer the best prices and service of any Gahanna OH moving company.
We can help you with the packing process, but it will often go even better if you declutter as you pack and follow these tips:
- Organization is critical to moving, and a huge part of this organization is packing as efficiently as possible. It’s very helpful to purge while you are packing so that your can get rid of things you no longer want by giving them away, donating them, or even having a yard sale. This creates less that you have to move from one place to another.
- For both residential and commercial moves, getting rid of old furniture can lead to needing less truck space to move the office. This can actually reduce the cost of the move.
- When packing, all the boxes should be labeled. You should only pack items from a single room together. This way, the movers know where to put the boxes and it reduces the need to move the boxes again. This expedites unpacking and getting things in order.
- Another important thing to do when packing is to start it early. You need to pack up the things that are not used on a daily basis. Make sure to label the boxes. Packing away these items will allow you to do the purging at the same time and reduce the number of items you need to pack at the last minute.
