How long has it been since you tried requesting residential moving quotes? The process has changed for the better now that requests can be submitted online for free, no-obligation responses.
Listing the important details once and sending them to pre-screened moving companies saves the customer time that can be used to prepare for the move.
There are several questions to ask the potential moving companies you decide to interview. Make sure you are getting the best deal and there are no undisclosed charges by talking with management. Ask if any part of the move will be subcontracted, and if so, how is control over your property maintained?
Will furniture and other possessions be placed in storage until you arrive at your new home? Ask if the unit has temperature and humidity controls and security measures.
