It’s always hard to move to a new place, but it doesn’t have to be. After the past year and poltical events that happened, I just wanted to get away. We had been thinking about moving anyway so it was a real concern for us to finally get started. We found a place, and we were all ready to leave, but realized that we really needed to hire a moving company.
Hiring a moving company wasn’t as hard as you might imagine, but it certainly was something that took some time. Phrases like “moving weight cubic” started to mean something to us! Mostly importantly we had to think about which company to hire, and there were a lot of them out there. We took a bit more time than we wanted picking a company, but we wanted to be sure we could trust them and that they would care for the things in our home.
We asked people we knew for recommendations, so we had somewhere to start. After all, people usually know whether they’re satisfied with work that was done. They were able to give us some idea of what they had experienced, and we went on from there. Next we tried the internet to find even more reviews, but the internet was most useful for finding out more about the companies themselves. We really just wanted to find out prices, but we were also able to get moving tips and to find out more about each individual company. We narrowed our choices down to two companies and had them give us an estimate. We made our final choice about a week before we wanted to move.
We may have taken longer than we wanted to, but it was a good idea for us. We got people that did a good job, and we felt safe letting them transport our belongings.
