Finding LA movers doesn’t have to be a daunting task. Here’s what you can do to find a moving firm to help you.
Start with referrals
Reach out to friends and family as well as colleagues and workmates for tips and suggestions, Real Simple says. They may know someone or something that could give you useful leads.
Know the signs
Be sure to look out for signs of a rogue mover. If the moving company asks for a deposit that’s too large, insists that you pay in cash, and turns up at your door with an unmarked moving van or truck, end the transaction and firmly but politely decline their offer of help.
Show the estimator everything
Don’t try to hide a few items from the estimator only to sneak it back in come moving day. Trying to pool the wool over the eyes of your moving team isn’t going to go over well and could even net you bigger fees.
Review the contract
Don’t sign anything until you’ve thoroughly reviewed the contract. Understand the conditions and terms. It may seem tempting to skip this step and go straight to signing on the dotted line. But if you have any questions or concerns, now is the best time to raise them. That way, if you aren’t happy with the answers you received, you can always check out other options.
Cover the basics
Make sure the company has the licensed and insurance to provide you with the services and assistance you need. Does it have a US DOT number? It must. If the company can’t show you one, move on to other moving firms.
Get a copy of the inventory list
Check it to make sure it’s complete. Don’t hesitate to tell your team of LA movers if they missed anything in the list.
