Moving into a new home is a big leap for your family. It’s something to look forward to, but you can’t just sit back and relax, and wait for the big day. Around Town Movers, a leading moving company, lists the most common residential moving mistakes to avoid.
Relocating is more than finding a perfect home location, loading your stuff into the trucks and unpacking; it’s also about looking for the right mover that can help you deal with this task. They can help even with the most difficult activity, such as loading your piano and other big appliances. Professional movers can also transport your household goods with ease since they have the right equipment to do the job.
Planning your move doesn’t happen overnight. Give yourself enough time, at least three to four months before the move, to set an appointment with your local movers. This will help you avoid the peak season and find a good moving company that offers services that align with your needs.
Not Asking for an Estimate
Hiring a company without asking for an estimate is a bad mistake, especially if you are on a tight budget. Remember that estimates come in two types: the binding and non-binding bids. The first moving estimate is a legal document that lists the fixed charges. Additional payment may only be necessary if you requested for add-on services. The non-binding estimate, on the other hand, only gives you an idea of how much your move will cost, based on the size of your current home, its content and the distance between your current location and your new living space.
