The movers finally arrived. As nostalgic I could be about my old house, but I was more enthusiastic about moving to a new home. It was in a beautiful neighbourhood where finally I got a property that provided me with a lawn of my own. It was obsolete but fulfilled all the requirements that I had on the list.
I knew that shifting to the new house was going to be toiling. Hence, I had to hire the best movers in town to ensure that the process goes smoothly without any damage to my belongings.
I talked to the neighbours in my new locality.
Who would have been a better option to ask for the best movers nearby? Obviously, it was the people in the new neighbourhood. I asked them for referrals. I was showered with contacts of several local agencies providing services in moving. All these movers were well experienced and well-versed in working in a particular area where I was to shift.
I ensured that the movers brought their boxes.
Buying boxes amidst all the chaos that I went through while shifting my house would have been difficult. Hence, I ensured that the movers that I appointed for the job came with their boxes. Luckily, the guys came in with boxes that weren’t just cheap but also eco-friendly. Doesn’t it feel good when you know that you are doing something without harming the nature around you even a bit?
I felt the same!
I got the best one by comparing the rates between the movers.
I had one thing straight in my mind: I would not settle on the first bid or estimate. This was the most significant factor that helped me carry the task of shifting to my new house on a budget. Last month a friend moved too and settled on the first budget estimate from the movers. Later he realized that he could have gotten a better deal, only if he had compared. I played smart here!
Hiring a licensed mover’s agency was my priority.
I didn’t want to end up in some trouble if some mishap occurs during the moving. I was aware of the fact that not hiring the right personnel for the task will end up throwing all the responsibility back on me. A license assured me of the fact that the agency is certified, hence trustworthy.
Before finalizing, I also talked to some of the people who had previously worked with the mover’s agency.
Talking to the people who have already had the experience of working with the agency you are about to choose, helps a lot. I got the idea about how the personnel does their work and what’s their nature of work. I didn’t want some rude individuals to come in and do the task for me. After talking to everyone, I went for the other movers because I got better reviews from people about them.
I avoided the agencies that were taking more time to reply.
Who doesn’t want to work with a company that’s professional in its approach? I wanted to, and this was the primary criterion that I used to shortlist. The movers who I worked with replied to me within 2 hours, which was quite impressive. Believe it or not, being on time is always a significant factor in judging someone. I did the same. Wouldn’t you want to work with someone who is punctual and replies on time?
At last, I have shifted in, and I love my new home. The guys who came to work helped me move with ease and smoothly. It’s always essential to hire movers and get the job done correctly. I hope you find the right movers too!
