Choosing the Right Moving Company

Moving and relocating can be a very stressful period for some, but it shouldn’t be! If anything, you should take in the experience, and savour it as much as possible for it’s a truly exciting process and does not happen very often! We know very well how troublesome moving can be, as it can be both physically and mentally tiring. We’ve compiled some tips to help ease this transition and perhaps even make it a memorable one for you and your family!

Checklist, checked!

How can you effectively shortlist moving companies? Like any task in life, the first step to aid your decision-making process is to prepare a checklist. This checklist should outline various pointers and features that are important to you, such as years of experience, ratings and reviews, pricing, and the list goes on. This list will help you weigh the pros and cons after doing the necessary research and homework on the many moving companies out there.

Read what others are saying

Reviews and testimonials are your best friends in this situation. When checking out potential moving companies, it’d be a good idea to go online and check out their social media page and Google Reviews. While some companies may promise you just about everything initially, they may not be able to deliver their promises. It’s always best to go with a company that has stellar reviews and testimonials from their past customers. Do also ask around amongst friends and family to recommend any moving companies that they may have used in the past.

Ensure protection at all times

Moving big and bulky furniture may be a tricky process, and unfortunately, there are times when mishaps or accidents may happen. So, ensure that all your belongings and furniture that is being transported is covered by insurance provided by the moving company. A good moving company will often offer various types of moving insurance to help safeguard your belongings. Ideally, you should choose one that covers the entire moving process, so that you can have peace of mind throughout this transition period.

Make sure that the price is right!

It’s true when they say that quality doesn’t always come cheap. While we understand that it’s always smart to stay thrifty in these times, try not to save on moving costs as skimping on this may lead to potential financial woes down the road. However, that’s not to say you should always go for the most expensive option. More often than not, moving companies will also offer various discounts or promotions for first-time movers, retirees, or just seasonal discounts such as a Christmas or Deepavali promotion!

In conclusion, choosing the right moving service is not an easy decision to make, and we hope these tips will come in handy on your big day! And if you’re ever in need of a temporary home to store your furniture, we’re here for you. Feel free to reach out to us to find out more. Happy moving!
