We have all heard about moving nightmares and if you have recently sold your house and are ready to make a move you'll want to avoid them. Here are some suggestions to help you avoid these types of bad situations so that they don't happen to you.
1. Plan ahead
One of the most common problems that people have to deal with is hiring a moving company at the last minute because they have put it off. As soon as you know the date of your move you should book the company right away. This gives you time to find out more about the company, their insurance policies and their track record. As well, many companies are booked months in advance especially on the weekends and at the end and the beginning of the month.
There are a lot of Calgary moving companies that are just starting out that you may end up hiring if you book your move at the last-minute. While some of these companies are fine and will handle your valuables with care some are just in it to make a quick buck and move on to the next client.
2. Look for reviews
There are a lot of sites that offer reviews from real people that say how their move went using a certain company. You should be able to read both bad and good reviews at this site. If you only see good reviews being posted about all the moving companies, move onto another site where honest opinions are being added. There are even sites where you can ask people what their experiences were using some of the major moving companies in Calgary.
3. Get references
To make sure that the movers care for your valuables as much as they would their own, you can ask for references from your friends and family. This is probably the best way to find out for sure whether you can trust this company with your move or not. You should also look for reviews to back up this recommendation. This will ensure that you get the absolute best moving company available and you won't have to worry about your move at all.
Avoid moving nightmares by doing everything you can to get an experienced and reputable company. Once you have hired a mover that you can trust you'll be able to work on other things that require your attention.
