Moving is a tedious job, especially if you have tons of stuff. Just the thought of moving to another house is absolutely tedious. There’s the business of packing up all your stuff, and then transferring it to the truck, cleaning up the empty house (yes, we do!) and then of course the entire carrying and unpacking and arranging your stuff all over again in the new house. Some of the things that are tedious to move are bed frames and bed mattress, huge pieces of furnitures like antique drawers and cabinets, grandfather clocks.
Anyway, the point of this entry is to give you pointers on what to consider when looking for hauling services.
- Ask around for referrals, as they say the best form of marketing is word of mouth. You want to use the services of a company who has already provided satisfactory service to someone you know. If that is not possible, check out online forums and read on the feedback provided by former customers.
- Check the rates. Some companies would charge you an arm and a leg and will not include other services like the actual carrying of your stuff. Make sure you know everything before finally making up your mind.
- Check out their vehicle and their people. Their people should at least be in uniform and have proper identification and the trucks should look well maintained.
Oh well, hope that helps
