What Do You Need To Know Before Hiring Professional Movers?

What happens when you hire local movers to help you? Many of you think that your worries are already out the window as soon as you sign a contract with a moving company but little do you know, not all moving companies are as professional as they claim to be.

Just ponder on this scenario, after contacting your local moving company, one of their staff sets up a date for both pick up and delivery of your things. And then a couple of weeks later, you find yourself in your new home without your possessions all because your local movers are asking for an exorbitant fee and are informing you that you can’t get your hands on your things not unless you pay them in the amount they demand. Yes, such horror happens all the time. And here you thought you are paying people to lessen the burden when in reality, they are only adding to it.

Our advice is that you should be very careful when you choose a moving company to manage your things. Here are some tips you need to know before hiring professional movers.

  1. Know The Type Of Movers You’ll Need

There are two kinds of movers, interstate and intrastate movers. It is important that you know which type of mover you need, as this will determine the company you need to hire.

  1. Do Your Own Research

What Do You Need To Know Before Hiring Professional Movers?Ever business will claim to be the best and they will surely say they are number one in their industry. If you go to Google and ask for the best moving companies within Brisbane, you will only be disappointed and you’ll end up more confused than ever because all companies will tell you that they are the best. Just take a look at their individual websites, in there you will find sugarcoated descriptions of what they have to offer. The only way to know if these claims are indeed true is to ask for feedback from their previous clients and you can do that through research.

You can either phone them if you know anyone who has tried hiring a local mover or you can read forums where clients vent their frustrations and complaints as well as their compliments and praises. Once you get your answers it will be easier for you to come up with a firm decision as to whom to trust. It is also important to study signs of a rogue mover since there are many of them out there.

  1. Ask Question

Every company offers different services. The best way to know what type of service they offer is to ask them questions. Ask as many questions as you can if you get in touch with a customer representative. This way you can help narrow down your options and it will also save you effort and time.

  1. Ask For A Quote

As dumb as it may sound but there are homeowners who fail to ask for a quote. As soon as they find a local mover that offers what they need, they will immediately book them without asking for an estimate. This has to be a priority especially if you are tight on budget. And when you ask for a quote, ask them also if there are any possible hidden charges upon completion. Most of the time, the company will explain to you the estimate and what it’s for. It is also worth mentioning that there are different kinds of estimates. To get clarity around this, ask them directly and take down notes so you won’t forget.

Before you sign any binding contract with a local mover, make sure that you have already done your part. You should have already done your research and made sure that the local company you are paying for is trustworthy, reliable and professional. Their quote has to be realistic. They also should deploy enough professional movers to handle your things. At Local Removalists Brisbane, we always encourage our clients to ask questions. This way, they will know what to expect during the move and it will also help set their expectations regarding the amount of money they will be paying in exchange for the services being offered. So there you have it, what you need to know before you hire local movers.
