3 Tips for Finding a Good Moving Company, Ewa, Hawaii

When you’re preparing to move, finding the right moving company eases stress and ensures your belongings arrive safely and on time. A good mover should exhibit certain characteristics that will give you peace of mind as they handle your possessions. Follow these tips to find a reputable company before your move.

How to Find the Right Moving Company

1. Research

Look up moving companies online that offer the services you need. Make sure they are available for your area and will cover the distance of your relocation. Be sure to check out reputable review sites to learn what past customers think about them. If issues did arise, research how any problems were handled and whether the customer was happy with their response.

2. Estimate

movingSome companies will ask you to list everything you are moving while others will visit your home and take inventory. If you list your belongings, be as detailed as possible to get an accurate estimate. Walkthroughs are preferred because the movers can better understand how your possessions will fit into their truck. Get an estimate in writing and compare quotes from different companies.

3. The Fine Print

Make sure you understand what your estimate includes and ask them if there are additional fees for services not listed. These costs can encompass moving up stairwells, transporting heavy items such as pianos and large furniture, or compensation for additional packing materials. Always read moving contracts thoroughly. Make sure everything is included in writing and that you understand what the terms mean. If the documents seem incomplete, don’t sign anything until you have the information you need.
