One of the final steps in planning a move is choosing the right moving company. Many people put this task on the back burner until they have a confirmed moving date but that may not be the best idea if you don’t already have a moving company in mind. There are numerous moving companies in the DC metro area but most buyers and sellers are unfamiliar with the kinds of services different movers provide. There’s where we come in, we’ve compiled a list of the top moving companies near Kingstowne.
Let’s face it.
Finding the right moving company is crucial to having a stress free move, but how can you find them?
Moving across town and moving across state lines are two very different things. Below, we listed the different types of movers and tips on choosing the right moving company.
TYPES OF MOVING COMPANIES
Think about it. Before choosing the right moving company, homeowners should know the different types and services of moving company. Just a little bit of research can save you not only time and money but also a few headaches.
Step one before choosing the right mover is identifying which type of move you are about to undertake. Here are different types of moving companies:
- Local moving companies
- Interstate moving companies
- International moving companies
Once you know the where you can starting about the how. How much help do you need? How much work do you want to do?
Here are different types of services:
- Full-service movers
- Self-service movers
- Do it yourself truck rental
- Specialized movers (think baby grand piano)
Now that you know what kind of move you have on your hands, finding the right moving companies should be quite simple.
TIPS ON CHOOSING THE RIGHT MOVING COMPANY
Planning before moving is not just convenient for you, but it could also save you some money and a headache too. If you have a firm moving date that will allow you to share that information with moving companies as you get quotes. Without a firm date, you can provide them with a window of possible dates. Many movers rates change depending on the day of the week so the more information you can provide the better your quote may be.
With today’s technology and the various review websites available, you can now look online for reviews on different moving companies around the area to determine which moving company is right for you.
However, if you are not convinced on reviews online, asking the most trusted people in your life is the way to go, they always give their honest opinions about the companies they tested.
There are different types of moving company. Moving across the country and moving a couple of miles are two different things. Some larger companies may not do smaller moves. Additionally, they may not be the best choice for such a move. We recommend working with a company that specializes in your type of move.
We’ve found that interstate movers will do smaller moves but you’ll pay significantly more than if you use a company that focuses primarily on in-town moves.
Cost of service
There are a lot of important things to consider before moving but knowing how much movers charge should not be an afterthought.
Having an estimate in advance can help you decide whether to hire professional movers or do it yourself. The cost of the service is directly related to how much work you expect to be done. You can go with a full-service move which includes the movers packing your belongings, a move only where you pack and they move everything or even a company that will simply help you load and unload your boxes.
