Getting a whole bunch of quotes from different movers.
Scan around and get as many quotes from movers as possible. You want a diverse field to choose from and to see who can offer you the best deal. Do your research into each company and see what they have to offer you.
Not asking the right questions.
There are a few important questions to ask when it comes to talking to movers. You need to collect the right information and to see if the moving company is right for you. Check out our pages, “The Questions to Ask the Moving Company” and “More Questions to Ask the Moving Company” to get the right questions.
Getting the professionals to come to your house beforehand.
Real professionals come to check out the place beforehand to make sure they are well-prepared for moving day. They need to collect all the vital information (house size, stairs, space and so forth) so they can come prepared for you when it comes to moving day. Make sure that the professional you hire does this before they turn up for the big day.
Not choosing just for money.
Yes, you are obviously trying to save money when it comes moving. But you be warned that not every “cheap” option out there is good for you. They are cheap for a reason (lack of proper equipment, poor service, not the right truck), so make sure you do all the proper research beforehand.
