How to Choose Surrey Movers
If you’re looking for the right Surrey movers – the type that know how to pack and transport your household treasures the safest, cheapest and fastest way – you have to know what you’re looking for. Movers can be your best friends, or they could be scam artists. Here are 10 things to consider when choosing top-notch Surrey movers.
Movers aren’t “one-size-fits-all.” You want ones who know the lay of the land, and have a great track record of customer satisfaction. Get recommendations through word of mouth, check with the Better Business Bureau, and ask for references.
During summer, holidays or at the end of the month might be the most convenient time for you to move, but it’s also the busiest time for Packers and Movers Jaipur movers. You’re more likely to have your needs met if you book movers more than eight weeks in advance, and you’re more likely to pay less if you avoid peak times.
From packing, to loading the truck, to renting portable moving containers and driving, there are a wide range of services to choose from. Factor your budget into this discussion with the movers, and consider the fact that you could save a few bucks providing your own packing supplies, but you’re better off letting experienced movers fill the truck to meet the proper weight distribution.
Find out what insurance and coverage is included or available at extra cost. Collect everything in writing. Also ask whether the company would provide Worker’s Compensation in the event of an injury, or if you’d be responsible.
What options are available for payment? Is there a discount for cash? Will a deposit be required? When will the balance be due? High-quality Surrey movers will be glad to make the process as clear and easy as possible for your own personal financial situation.
An estimate is just that – an estimate. Consider the accuracy of the estimate when you’re comparing prices between companies. A price too low might be too good to be true, might not include HST or might not have factored in obstacles such as staircases or heavy objects. Talk to them about out how to get the estimate as accurate as possible and find out if there have been complaints from the Better Business Bureau regarding inaccurate quotes.
7. Company organization
Finding a great moving company can be difficult due to the wealth of options during peak times, but hiring a company that sets up shop for some quick money in the summer is the last thing you want to do. Find out how long the company has been around, whether they own or rent the trucks, and whether the staff are temp workers or experienced movers.
What is the refund policy? Booking in advance and knowing that you can change your mind until a certain date will help make the process much less daunting.
Where are you moving from, and where is the final destination? Whether you’re moving to the other side of Surrey or the trek’s a little further away, the estimate in terms of price and length of time for the process will be much more accurate after discussing the location details with movers who know the city from top to bottom.
10. Valuables and fragile items
Regardless of how satisfied you are with your final decision on movers, you still need to keep valuables and important paperwork with you at all times, in case of unforeseen circumstances. Fragile items and plants will also require a keen eye to ensure that they receive the caution necessary.
