Moving during the summer months can be tough. Buying supplies, getting estimates from moving companies, reserving the moving truck can be a huge task. Please take advice from a moving industry expert. Here are 5 tasks every person planning to move can do to help make the move process easier.
Get multiple estimates several months before the actual move date.
Ask the booking agent, mover, or crew leader questions about scheduling and billing such as hourly, or flat rates and cost of supplies.
Buy more supplies than the movers need!
Plan for the move to cost 10 to 25 percent more than the moving quote.
Reserve the movers, storage containers, and truck in advance.
These 5 tasks will help when planning a move during the summer. Since the majority of moving quotes are given over the phone or online, plan for the move to cost a little over the estimate or quote.
