To save you time and ensure that you’re the most effective in your search here’s X questions that we recommend you ask the movers.
Question 1: “Can you move X amount of stuff from X to X?”
So you need to know exactly how much you have that needs to be moved and you need to know where and from your moving. You should always ask this upfront to save you time in case a mover cannot do this.
Question 2: “Are you a licensed mover?”
All our movers are licensed, but its always good double checking this. The extra benefit to asking this question is that they will know you are serious and a knowledgeable buyer.
Question 3: “How much would this cost me?”
If they cannot give you a quote tell them that you will need at least an approximate quote before being able to consider them as a potential moving company. Tell them that you are speaking with several other movers and that you’re just trying to get the best possible deal.
Question 4: “What can I do to lower the cost?”
This can be things such as using a smaller truck, or being flexible on the move date.
