Selecting A Moving Company And Getting the Best Rates Possible.
Local moving usually 100 miles or less, is charged for by the hour, and often completed within the same day.
When selecting local movers, research is key. The internet today provides many helpful tools that enable you to find qualified movers very quickly. Various review sites such as the Better Business Bureau and Yelp can help you narrow down your search to a few qualified movers. Movers that belong to the BBB and movers that belong to any state moving associations are good choices. The reason is because member movers value their reputations within these associations. You will rarely find bad movers or rogue movers that are affiliated with consumer or moving associations, because over time they would be exposed.
To get the best rates from movers, when you contact them, let them know you will be contacting a few other movers and that budget is important. When movers know they are competing with other movers, they will tend to give the best rates and pricing. Ask them to email you their quotes and rates in writing. Be sure their quotes includes the list of items to be moved, along with access descriptions of each location. Actually read the quotes, as each mover may have different minimums, rates, etc.
