Things to Do to Get the Right Aventura Movers
The process of finding the right mover may seem daunting. Yet, doing a little research is certainly worth it. By shopping around, you can save a lot of money as well as avoid scams. No need to worry, though. Here are things we recommend you to do to get the right mover.
First and foremost, get recommendations. If you are in Aventura Florida, you should ask for recommendations from your family, friends, coworkers and even local real estate agents about Aventura movers. You can look in your phone book for moving companies which have offices near your home.
Here, you will want to get an in-person estimate of how much the move will cost. Remember, you can’t rely on any estimate which comes from someone who has not looked in every one of your closets. Don’t assume that big name companies are the best. And, don’t get estimates through websites which offer to find you a mover. Instead, find a mover yourself. By doing so, you can avoid scams associated with some of those sites.
Do an initial screening
Do a little research. When you have a list of recommended movers, you should go online to do a quick background check. Yes, just a quick one. You can do a more thorough check later. You can call or go to the website of Better Business Bureau (website: bbb.org). You can call or e-mail the American Moving Storage Association to see if a moving company is a member. If it is a member, it means that it has agreed to follow the organization’s published tariffs as well as participate in its arbitration program. Keep this in mind: the membership is voluntary. While it is a good thing if a moving company is a member, you should not rule out the company who is not a member. That is, as long as the company checks out in all other ways.
Get three or four moving companies to call for an in-home estimate
This is important. You need to get estimates. Yes, estimates. You should get it from three or four moving companies. If you get estimates, you can calculate how much the moving process will cost. That being said, you need to remember that they are estimates. Your price may be lower or higher than that. Expect it to be higher, just to be safe.
