When moving to or within the Austin area, house movers can make a dramatic difference in your success, and they can save you a considerable amount of time and money. In fact, used properly and early enough, house movers can actually save you so much that they end up paying for themselves. That’s why it troubles us so that the popular perception of house movers is that they’re a significant expense and perhaps even a luxury. House movers, however, are a tool. At Austin Movers, it’s our mission to teach the masses to use that tool in a productive way.
We’re sure you’ve heard it all before; start planning your move as soon as possible, preferably thirty days in advance. But what that advice typically leaves out is how to plan in a way that maximizes your time and financial budgets. Most people think of moving companies as a service that comes into your house, perhaps packs your boxes, loads them onto the truck, delivers them to the destination and then unloads them. The good moving services, such as the ones we deal with here at Austin movers, do much more than that.
The reason we advise clients to get their house movers involved as soon as possible is that the service provides you with a moving package, and they’ll even assign a relocation counselor to your account. Sure, you can start planning thirty days in advance, but if you start now, then you’ll have access to that package and that counselor immediately. What that means is that you’ll have a system in place guiding you, and you’ll have access to an expert who can answer your questions, and assuage any concerns that you may have.
Typically, what separates house movers from other moving services is that they provide packing and supplies as part of the service. A packing service is a great way to rid yourself of much of the burden associated with the preparation, and since the moving company is taking care of so many of the menial tasks, you have a lot of “free” time to assign elsewhere. But just because you’ve hired a packing service doesn’t mean that it’s a completely hands-off process. You have to take certain step to prepare for them, and the sooner you do that, the easier it will be.
Now, not all house movers offer the same services or even the same level of integrity and dependability. The last thing you want to do is choose your house movers casually, such as choosing the cheapest option you find or paying more for the big nationwide name. In order to avoid that, you have some work ahead of you. You need to select a handful or more of moving companies advertising fair prices, and then you need to research them. Ask the Better Business Bureau about them, and then call them directly to ask for several references. You can also search online for complaints about the company.
Once you’ve narrowed it to a short list, it’s time to call each company on that list, and conduct a thorough interview process with them. During the interview, you should be concerned with hidden fees, insurance, guarantees and so forth. Then, before agreeing to anything, get the contract, and read it over thoroughly. If you don’t understand it all, get help from someone who does. This is the only way to ensure that it protects you and legally guarantees everything that the house movers promised.
Granted, that’s a lot of work, which is why most people don’t do it. But that’s not a good option. The risk simply isn’t worth it, and that’s why we’ve developed the network here at Austin Movers. We do the work for you by assessing the companies, and we even continue to monitor our partners to ensure that they continue to charge low rates and uphold our standards. When you choose a moving company through us, you’re getting a lot more than just a cheap rate. You’re getting quality, insurance, guarantees and an unparalleled commitment to customer satisfaction.
