We all know moving can be stressful. There’s a ton of variables and factors to consider, and the thought of relocating can be rather daunting. One of the best things you can do for yourself is reach out to professional movers for moving quotes in Dallas.
But one quote isn’t enough, your best bet is to contact multiple reputable moving companies to see which quote is the best fit for you.
You have a few options for quotes: calling on the phone, online quotes, and in-home estimates.
Phone and Online Moving Quote Estimates
These are good options for convenience, and the more detailed you are with what all you need moved, how far, the dates, etc., the more accurate the quote will be.
In-Home Moving Quote Estimates
These quotes are great because the movers can see what all needs to be moved and can form a better picture of what all will be required to make your move go as smoothly as possible.
When reaching out for estimates, keep these simple tips in mind:
- Be sure that the moving company offers the type of move you need. For instance, if you’re moving from/to an apartment, be sure the company offers apartment moving. If you need to relocate an office, be sure the company offers office/commercial moving services.
- Get quotes from multiple moving companies.
- If doing in-home estimates/quotes, plan on giving each mover about 30 minutes to look everything over and create a quote for you.
- If doing in-home estimates, try and schedule them all on the same day, or within a few days–this will save you time and get it all done with quickly.
- If you need large items moved (such as beds, couches, large TV’s, etc.), be sure you tell/show the movers, as they may affect the quote.
- If you’re moving to/from a place that requires going up and down stairs, be sure the movers are aware, as that can affect the quote/estimate as well.
- Be sure to mention any other circumstances or concerns you may have, so that all parties are well-informed.
The bottom line: clear communication is key! The more clear the job is, the more likely you are to receive accurate quotes. And, of course, accurate quotes are key to avoiding any surprise expenses come moving-day.
