If there is one common belief about moving, it’s that it’s a stressful experience where things get broken and items get lost. There’s only one way that such a ‘truth’ is actually ‘true’, and that’s if you hire a moving company that’s not fit to call itself one!
Here are some other common misconception about moving …
Want to save money? Then don’t hire a moving company, do it yourself!
Why hire someone to move for you, when you can do it yourself? If you have enough willing friends (and when you ask for friends to help you move you soon find out who your friends actually are) then surely that’s cheaper than paying the pros?
Well … think about it. Do you have a van large enough to move all your stuff? Do you have enough boxes? How many trips will you need to take? How long will it take and how much time will you need to take off work?
When you add it all up, doing the move yourself is not as ‘cheap’ as you may think!
Damages and losses are to be expected …
Are you sure about that? How would you feel if you order an item in the mail and it arrives in pieces? Professional moving companies pride themselves on what they do, and they will do everything they can to make sure not one single item of yours is scratched or damaged in any way.
Professional moving companies have a reputation to uphold, and it’s not a reputation that’s going to garner much business if they constantly break and misplace items.
One moving company is much the same as any other moving company
Would you say that about any other business niche? Say you are thinking about getting a tattoo – would you go to just ANY tattoo parlor?
There are good moving companies and there are bad moving companies, just like with any other business realm. Look out for testimonials from friends, online reviews and any customer complaints. Make sure also that any company you work with is properly insured and fully licensed. Only the best companies manage to maintain a gleaming reputation.
