If you are considering making a big move, hiring quality movers will make the process far easier. Given how stressful a move can be either across the country or town, having help will make it possible to remain calm throughout this new adventure. The trick is finding the right mover to help with the process.

Once you have the correct team in place, the process of moving becomes far more relaxing. Here are 5 tips for picking quality movers:

#1. Hire a licensed company

Plenty of people will offer moving services on the side to pick up extra cash. One may see ads on Craigslist or online from various people offering assistance at an hourly rate. These contractors may or may not do a good job. Since they are not licensed, insured, or have an actual business, there is no way to know what type of job an unknown mover will do.

With nothing to lose, they can be careless with one's belongings and can lose items that the homeowner cannot recover. This is a risk one does not have to take by using a licensed and insured company. Their license and reputation are on the line if they fail to meet common business standards, creating a sort of guarantee regarding the quality one will receive.

#2. Check their experience

A company that has been in business for a decent amount of time or has completed numerous moves, has the experience necessary to do a good job moving you. If a company cannot provide information about their experience, this should be a red flag.

#3. Read reviews

Check the reviews online to see what type of reputation a moving company has. If the reviews are mixed, go ahead and ask the company about anything that is negative. You may find out that something that bothered someone has been fixed or that it might not be an issue for your particular situation.

Overall, online reviews can give a basic understanding of what a company is like to work with.

#4. Determine what services they offer

For a company to be quality movers they not only need to do a good job but they also need to provide the services you require. Some moving companies simply drive the truck across town or across the country. Others will box up your entire home, load everything into the truck and unload at the next location.

Determine what level of moving assistance you require and when speaking with a company, ask if they offer those services.

#5. Check prices

The lowest bid is not always the best. Compare prices and determine if you are getting a good value for the services being offered. Quality movers are unlikely to undercut their prices but should be giving you a fair bid. Any bid should be in writing and a reputable company will welcome questions, expand on anything as needed and work with you to arrive at a service/cost arrangement that is fair.

Call Quality Movers When Moving Grandma

Quality-Movers20165As quality movers, we help families through important transitions. One of these important times is moving your grandmother, parent, or elderly relative into their retirement home or condominium. For elderly people, the idea of moving into a smaller space and out of their primary residence can be stressful and intimidating. It is a situation that is often required due to the health of the person involved but that doesn't mean that they are looking forward to the change. Imagine how stressful moving can be for you when you have made a choice to relocate to somewhere different. When it comes to elderly people that are moving due to their health rather than desire, the stress is only magnified. This makes it important to do the things necessary to help alleviate that stress as much as possible. We are here to help you to do so.

Reasons to Hire Quality Movers for Your Elderly Relative's Move

#1 Attention to Detail

As professional movers we pay attention to every detail. For example, when walking through the home with you, you can let us know where a certain piece is going to go in the new destination. This makes it possible to identify which paintings need to go in the new bedroom, dining room, or living room. Every detail that needs to be made note of we can do so, ensuring that the move goes quickly and seamlessly.

#2 Safe Packing

We will pack up everything in a manner that is completely safe and secure so that you don't need to worry about anything breaking, tipping, or cracking along the journey. This is really important when moving an elderly relative because you have likely already paired down their belongings. What remains are things that typically have sentimental value. We respect this and will do our part to keep them safe.

#3 Stress-Free Move

Moving does not have to be stressful when you have someone visiting their home and packing everything for you. We will then load up everything into the truck for transportation and once at the new location we will unload the truck. In this way, you can spend all of your time and attention focused on the emotional and physical needs of your loved one rather than worrying about their belongings.

#4 Fast Set-Up

Once at their new home, we can unload the truck and set everything up for you. This means that all the furniture can be placed in the specific rooms its going in, all the paintings can be placed where they need to go, and the boxes deposited in the right location. We can even set up furniture or unpack if necessary. Our goal is to make the move as easy as stress-free as possible and this is one way to do so. By the time you bring your grandmother or elderly parent to their new home it will look and feel like a place they belong and rather than a moving mess.
