We offer three tips you’ll want to follow for hiring affordable movers.

 

  1. Thoroughly Screen the Top Prospects

 

After you have identified a group of potential movers, take some time to screen your list before committing to let them come to your home for an in-house estimate. The Better Business Bureau (BBB) website is good place to check the background of moving companies. If a moving company is member of the American Moving and Storage Association, it is a good sign. Members of the organization are required to use its tariffs and arbitration program to resolve disputes. Another screening question to ask is if the company handles the move or if it’s done by a subcontractor.

 

  1. Get In-House Estimates

 

Once you are satisfied you have found some good discount movers and have screened them, invite them to do an in-house estimate. Drop any company from your list that insists on doing an estimate over the phone.

 

  1. Show the Estimators Everything

 

It is important take an estimator through your entire home so he can see everything you to want to move, including the attic, basement and closets. This will help ensure you get the most accurate quote and are not surprised on moving day. Make sure to thoroughly describe your new house, including any stairs and elevators and the distance from the curb so the conditions can be correctly noted in the quote as well.

 

Following these three tips are some of the steps you can take to identify a good moving company. If you have any questions about discount movers, please call Frisco Moving Systems Corporation at [phone].
