Nobody wants to move. Of course the new house may be exciting. The new city may be somewhere you have dreamed of living. You might be getting everything that you want out of the move – but moving is still not a fun process. So the question becomes, should you do it yourself, or hire a Yorba Linda moving company to help you with your move?
Don’t Go With The First Company You See
This is an expensive and important undertaking. You are trusting all of your possession to the moving company that you choose. You want to be sure that you choose one that will value your stuff and will treat you right. There are four things you should look for when you are choosing the right moving company in Yorba Linda (and this goes for everywhere else too!).
#1 – Ask Your Friends For Referrals
You want to find a company that someone that you trust has had a good experience with. You don’t really want to blindly trust Google with this one – this is too important a decision. Take your time, find several companies that your friends highly recommend, and use that as your list of possibilities. If you are having a hard time finding enough recommendations, try looking at yelp for online reviews. You want to make sure that you find a company that will take good care of your stuff, will give you an honest price, and will stand behind their work. If you find a company that will do all three of those, you just might have a winner!
#2 – Schedule 3 or More In Home Estimates
For a move, it is important to have an in home estimate. This lets the moving company know what they are getting into so that they can accurately quote your job, and it gives you the opportunity to ask all of the questions that you will need answered. You will want to make sure that the company that you are talking to is the one that will be doing the actual move (that they are not a broker or will not be subcontracting the job). You will want to ask about insurance and licensing. You will want to ask about their trucks and their equipment. And you will want to ask how they will pack your stuff to protect it. Choose the company that you get the best feeling from.
#3 – Look A Little Deeper
This is when you look at the companies a little bit closer. You want to make sure that they are not hiding any warts under the surface. Take a look at sites like the Better Business Bureau and RipoffReport.com to see if there are any listings of your contenders. If there are horror stories, that should give you pause before you make your decision. Keep in mind that a single horror story on one of these sites should not disqualify a company, but it is at least something that you should ask them about.
#4 – Get Everything In Writing
You want to make sure that you get everything in writing. Read it thoroughly before you sign it – even if it holds up the move. You want to make sure that your stuff is protected and that you are not being scammed in any way. We have heard horror stories of moving companies holding their customer’s belongings hostage until they are paid in full at a much higher rate than they were quoted. These companies will either bury something in fine print or not give you anything in writing, so make sure that you know what the agreement is before you let them take anything!
