Pointers to Consider

While hiring a moving company do not make any hasty decisions of randomly picking any that you come across. Take a look at the four essential pointers that will help you to make an informed decision.

  •    Get Recommendations – First and foremost, always go for recommendations from friends, colleagues, family or local agents. Also, do not assume that always big-name companies will be the best.
  •    Conduct an Initial Screening – After getting a list of some recommended movers, make it a point to conduct a prompt background check. Ensure to check consumer-advocacy sites as they contain blacklist of companies along with general information, tips, and history of the consumer complaints.
  •    In-home Estimate – While shifting to another state, ensure whether the moving company will provide you with a binding estimate in written or a binding estimate that will not exceed. Each of these estimates will provide a guarantee on what you need to pay for the move. Estimates for moves that are interstate will rest upon the weight to be moved plus the distance. In case of moves in the same state, the estimate rules may vary. So check this with the company beforehand.
  •    Show Everything to the Estimator – The moment the estimator visits your home or office ensure to show them everything that you want to move in the attic, the basement, the backyard and in the closets. This will help you stay on the safe side of not allowing the mover to charge you higher on the final day stating that you have added more goods. Besides the estimator should know beforehand about any conditions in your office or home which may make a move complicated such as elevators, stairs or a distance to the door from the curb. When the estimator is at your place avail as much information possible regarding the moving company. Ensure that they will carry out the task and not contract it to some other mover. Also, find out for how many years the company is in business. Always hire the one that is licensed and has the needed experience in this field such as Anytime Movers Singapore.

With countless moves each year in Singapore, it indeed is a small miracle that most moves go smoothly, sans any issues whatsoever. Thus, hiring the services of a quality moving company is a must. Unfortunately, amid the smooth moves, shoddy practices or scams do take place. So it is entirely in your interest in being informed regarding every step involved in the process. The bottom line is, next time you or any of your acquaintance are in need of such services consider the aforementioned pointers thoroughly and enjoy a hassle-free move.
