How To Choose The Best Moving Companies

by Austin Baines Content Writer

If you're about to move, hiring the best moving companies is not only important, it's essential. Hire the right moving company and you'll be a happy camper, free to enjoy your new home. But hire the wrong one, and you'll quickly find out why “quality” is more important than “price”.

So if you'd like to know how to hire moving companies that won't damage your precious goods, turn up late, treat you rudely and overcharge you, here's some helpful tips for a hassle free move.

Hire a Mover That Knows Your New Neighborhood

Some moving companies specialize in city based removals whereas others specialize in smaller towns and rural districts. Hiring a moving company that has no clue about your new neighborhood can result in delays in delivery that will cost you money.

Make Sure the Trucks Are Equipped With GPS

You should only ever choose moving companies that use trucks equipped with GPS for two reasons. 1) You'll know exactly where the truck and driver are at all times, if you need to. And 2) the driver will know exactly where to deliver your goods, which saves both time and money.

Do A Reference Check

There's a damn good reason employers check references when hiring new employees. And let's face it. Hiring movers Melbourne is basically the same thing. That's why you should carefully check the background of the company you're thinking of hiring. The removal industry is extremely competitive, and unfortunately there are many companies seemingly hell-bent on making a quick buck at your expense.

When obtaining references, always try and get one from someone you know and trust who has used the company before. Never trust the references moving companies supply you. These are carefully selected references from highly satisfied customers who usually have very low expectations. These references are never a true representation of the actual experience you can expect.

Do They Provide Transit Insurance?

Another thing to look out for is whether or not the moving companies provide moving insurance for your goods while they're being moved. Some moving companies provide this insurance standard, others offer it as an add-on, and some moving companies simply don't offer it at all. If your moving company does provide the insurance, it's important to find out whether or not it will cover your goods based on their replacement value. And finally, always check whether the insurance covers your goods if you pack them yourself. In many cases (insurance companies never tell you this), your insurance is void if you do the packing yourself.

If you follow this advice, your move should be smooth and hassle free.
