After you have agreed on the date, start your search for movers immediately. This is especially important when the peak moving season falls between May and August. You will lose the option to delay it.
How can you locate a mover?
Talk to your dealer. Dealers are familiar with home sales. They can recommend movers or make proposals that will save money and time. You can also have 5-star moving services of Seattle select movers according to your need.
Also, take a look at the Yellow Pages. Local subsidiaries are available for most nationally-respected moving companies. These subsidiaries must adhere to the same values as these giant moving companies in order to be allowed to join them.
Large movers now have websites that provide information, advice, and numbers for both the corporate head office as well as local movers. If you have one, the corporate relocation section of your business can be a reliable source of trustworthy movers. Information from family, friends, and neighbors is a less reliable source of information.
You can request estimates from five different movers if you are able to. Ask for references. Most estimates are based upon hourly expenses for a set number of movers and, most importantly, what the moving requirements are.
You should be provided with information about the number of movers needed, the time required (as well moving time), and the number of necessary trucks. Once you have received the estimate and checked the references, it is time to choose your mover. Your choice should be based on the service and not on cost. Don't hesitate to ask for help.
