Poor Choice of the Moving Firm
When you wait to book for a mover, most of the best movers will have been occupied. This means that you will be forced to go for a mover with less moving experience. That’s where all your moving problems originate. The best is not always saved for the last. Moving is a competitive area since it touches on the very lives of the customers. Imagine moving your whole house and relocating to another state? It takes courage and the healing hands of time to help you settle elsewhere. You have been used to seeing some buildings and have even made them a landmark. All of a sudden there is the need to move. This situation is scary at first. People will do everything to ensure that they move perfectly. Troubles in the moving process are not hoped for.
It is a Competition
As you prepare to move, thousands of other people are also in the process of either preparing or moving. There is an increasing number of moves in today’s world. This makes moving even more competitive. People fight for a chance to move with the best movers in town. As an Abbotsford mover, Good Place Moving Company handles a lot of clients. All of them want nothing less than quality services. Late booking sometimes causes people who would have moved with us to move with other movers. When they get a bad experience, they develop a bad attitude towards moving.
Just Book Earlier
Save yourself from getting to a point of hating moving by booking earlier. For you to get there, you need to adjust your timeline properly. Make sure that you have enough time to move. Begin looking for reputable movers as early as possible. Sometimes your friends will recommend a mover. Family and relatives also offer trustworthy recommendations. But if you don’t have that advantage, do the research on your own. Begin with deciding on the type of move you have at hand. The type of move determines the type of mover you should be hiring. Short moves are very different from long distance movers. Similarly, moving common household goods should be different from moving office furniture.
Thorough Search for the Mover
The search for a reputable mover can be in the form of internet search. Good reviews and occasional bad reviews should give you an idea of the type of moving services a mover offers. You shouldn’t expect all the customer reviews to be good. In fact, that could be the only red flag that tells that the mover is a scam. Why? A mover who has been in the business for long may have had some problems with weather, traffic, and so on. This means that some of their clients will end up being dissatisfied. Even with the best services, there are some buyers who won’t leave a good review. Read the reviews and find out if they are trustworthy. You don’t want to be a victim of a robot’s comments.
When Are You Moving?
Timing the move helps make an early booking. If you know that you will move in a month’s time, you should begin finalizing the process of booking. People who plan to move many months ahead may not need to rush to get a mover. All they have to do is ensure that the critical time does not catch up with them. Check that you are comfortable to move and then contact the mover. The planning process needs to be executed to make it worth your time and efforts. There is no point planning to move for months only to still become a late booker of the mover. If you know every detail about the mover, feel free to make the bold step and book early. Doing so will give you a chance to find out if there are any promotions and discounts on offer. Who would want a waiver from the moving quote? This only comes once in a while anyway. Don’t put too much hope unless you have a reason to believe that there is a discount.
What can hold you back?
Everything is set and you seem ready. You have the resources necessary to pack and get going. But sometimes you just feel that there is still something that you have not done. Are you planning too much? Maybe you are getting into the finer details? This has the potential of slowing your movement. Sometimes you just need to make a quick decision. At other times, you may need a second opinion before you finally trust that moving firm with your belongings. The best thing to do is to multi-task. Don’t wait for the mover’s feedback and then being to do the packing. Do your part and let other parties do theirs. At the end of the day, you will realize that you can only do what is within your reach. For instance, it is yours to choose the firm but it is theirs to make the move a reality. So why and what were you waiting for anyway? The basic mover research should earn you a good mover who will do the talk.
The Importance of Early Booking
By simply booking early, you will have several advantages. These advantages may be limited but they will make your moving experience better.
No Last Minute Rush
The biggest gain that an individual gets from early booking is lack of last minute rush. The craze over where to put what or how to pack stuff won’t be there. It will be a calm move. This will mark the beginning of organized moves for the individual. Good Place Moving has the capacity to handle many customers. This does not mean that we love last minute rush. The confusion is sickening when you have to do everything in a rush. We believe that the quickest way to move is to simply move earlier. This explains why booking early is the same as moving efficiently. Goods are safer when they are handled with caution. It is hard to handle goods carefully when you are dashing all over the place. Want a gentle mover? Give them time to handle your goods.
Cancellations won’t throw you off balance
It is interesting how some movers take on the moving requests beyond their capacity. They keep receiving bookings until when the time comes to move and they realize their insufficiency. That’s when they begin looking for other movers to help them offload the workload. That’s unfair, right? But lucky are you if you booked earlier. Most movers move in the basis of first come first serve. Other movers with bigger capacities can handle urgent moves. The point is, when you come earlier, you will get the move at the expense of others who come late. That’s the beauty with booking early. You rest assured that whatever happens, you will be considered first. Some peace of mind you will get if you know that your move is kind of assured.
When worse comes to worst, people who booked earlier will be notified early that there is a change. This still gives you an edge to plan and book another mover if necessary. Your moving schedule will not be disrupted and you will go home happy. Some people can’t afford to move at a later time because of work and other commitments. If you are in that position, make sure that your booking comes even earlier. And even if you have some time to waste, why waste on moving? There are other interesting things to do in life.
Enough time to Adjust
Early booking gives you a chance to adjust according to new needs. The mover can come to your house and make an estimate. On further inquiry, you realize that there are things that you no longer need. They can be dumped and you will have to adjust the moving budget. At other times, you may need to buy something and move with it to your new home. A new piece of furniture may be cheaper in your area than in the area you are moving into. You will have to make some changes and budget for the new furniture. There are some things that can fit into your car. They include the valuables which you can’t afford to lose. Don’t bother the mover with them. Take the responsibility of taking them with you in your small car. This way, you will have security over your highly-valued items. Sorting things out to decide on which ones to consider as expensive may need the help of the mover. This especially comes handy when you are evaluating the value of assets during insurance.
Let the mover know in advance what you plan to move. This is good for everyone. You will have your goods handled with the right equipment. The moving company will not have to struggle during the moving process. Sometimes you think that everything is in control until you realize that you need expert hands to help you. Things like packing are easy until you meet goods which need some formula to pack safely. All these moving issues can be solved if they are detected early. That’s why you will be required to book earlier to get safer moves. Most movers are not equipped with the necessary license or facilities to move things like firearms and ammunition. Knowledge is power. If you just know that the mover won’t move something, you will do something about it.
Time for Inventory
If you are told to move now and then, you won’t be in a position to account for all your goods. Now, if you don’t have a reference point, how will you know that something got lost along the way? It is impossible to know that unless you keep an inventory. Most moving companies will also want o keep an inventory including the state of the goods when they received them. Don’t rely too much on their inventory. There could b errors in the inventory. Keep your own record of the things that are being transported. That can be an uphill task in an individual who has been buying stuff over years. If you book early, you can have all the time to record each and every piece of item. This will help you not only in moving but also to know what you have. You could easily identify important stuff that you are lacking through checking through your goods.
Move with Us
Moving experiences are diverse across moving firms. Some have all it takes to make moving a happy experience. Other movers rely on equipment from a third party to move for their customers. All the same, moving will feel different when you compare companies. In fact, no two moving instances will ever be the same. There are things that change and they make the difference.
