Pack and unpack painlessly. And call Lone Star Self Storage in South Austin to help stow the “leftovers.”
Sometimes, you can’t manage a move by yourself and need to call a moving company. You can go online or check the local newspaper. But whatever source you use, you’ll need to do some research on the company to make sure it’s all that it claims to be. The last thing you need is a moving disaster to add to your stress levels.
One of the best ways to find a good moving company is to ask any family, friends and professional colleagues who have used third-party moving services. How did the company treat them and their belongings and would they recommend that company to a friend?
Two other great resources are your local Chamber of Commerce (CC) or Better Business Bureau (BBB). Both organizations should have lists of all moving companies that conform to CC and BBB quality standards. Movers registered with these entities will typically have all the necessary licenses and insurance policies necessary to operate within the state where they are located.
If you will be moving between states, you would be wise to do research that’s not only relevant to your state, but also to the state to which you will be moving. This is because not all states have the same legal requirements. Also, if you decide to go with a CC or BBB-approved mover, these organizations will offer third-party arbitration should a problem arise.
After you have settled on a list of moving company candidates, have a short interview with them over the phone. Ask them about their customer policies and the number of years they been in business. Also request some references you can contact. If everything checks out, ask them for an in-house moving estimate. After you’ve compared quotes and services, make your decision.
