f you’re planning on moving soon, you probably have a lot of questions. If so, you’re not alone, as most of our other customers here in (city) do as well. Here are some of the questions we as residential movers are asked most often and their answers so you won’t have to keep wandering about them.
Q. When should I contact a moving company for assistance?
A. Generally speaking, the earlier you contact us the better. In most cases, learning about your move between four and six weeks out is ideal for both of us.
Q. Does it matter when I move?
A. We understand that the timing of your move is usually out of your control. However, if you do have a choice, avoid moving at the end of the month, during the summer or during the period between Christmas and New Year’s Day. These are the busiest times for movers, which means reserving the exact piece of equipment you need could be a bit more challenging.
Q. How is the cost determined?
A. There are a number of things that go into an estimate, but the two biggest factors that determine the cost of a move are the weight of your goods and the distance they must travel.
Q. Are there certain goods that cannot be moved?
A. Yes, there are certain items that should not be moved such as household chemicals, car batteries, aerosols, paints and solvents, to name a few. There may be other restricted items based upon the location you are moving to. We will be happy to provide you with a complete list of forbidden items ahead of time so that you can pack accordingly.
In addition, we caution against moving certain items such as refrigerated or frozen foods, plants or goods with a great deal of sentimental value. Rather than placing these items on a moving truck, we recommend you transport them yourself.
