Moving to a new home need not be a painful experience. Just following these simple moving tips can save homeowners from a lot of trouble.

Canvas for Moving Quotes

The best way to get a fair deal is to contact a lot of companies and ask for price quotes. This way, one can compare prices and ensure that he gets the services that he needs the most. Just remember to follow the next advice when doing so.

Get In-house Estimates

One of the common mistakes homeowners make in hiring moving companies is making the transaction and asking for a quote over the telephone. A precise estimate is only possible if the company goes to the house and sees all the things that have to be moved. Also, if the company is within 50 miles, this is a requirement.

Beware of Cheap Moving Costs

A mover who tells a homeowner that he’s willing to do the job for a lot less than other movers is probably a scammer. One of the usual schemes that movers may do is to hold the homeowner’s things for insurance until the extra charges which suddenly just crop up in the bills are paid.

Plan Ahead

Companies have their busy seasons so it’s always a good plan to arrange everything in advance. The best time is during second to third weeks of winter since most renters move out at the start of the month when the lease has been signed.

Get a Written Contract

Make sure that a binding estimate has been signed. The contract has to contain all the services agreed upon by the company and the homeowner. A homeowner has the right to refuse signing a moving quote or contract which makes him uncomfortable.

In summary, hiring moving companies just takes a lot of good sense. Hopefully, these tips would be quite helpful. Good luck!
