With the warmer weather comes many changes. School is ending and your family may spend more time playing and entertaining outside. Those changes may also include moving to a new home.
May is just the beginning of the busiest moving season of the year. More families relocate during the summer months than all the other months of the year combined! There’s no doubt that moving while the weather is nice makes the job much easier, but it doesn’t make finding the right Seattle movers any easier.
With Seattle moving companies so busy during the summer, it’s more important than ever to make sure you know how to narrow down your choices. Here’s how to find the perfect moving crew for your summer move.
Ask About Moving Company References and Qualifications
Your first bit of homework is to make sure the Seattle residential movers you’re interested in are qualified to get the job done right. The great thing about researching references and qualifications is that you can do most of it without calling in and speaking directly with the moving company.
Movers with quality references and qualifications are proud to showcase their affiliations online. For example, at North Coast Moving & Storage, we proudly feature moving reviews on our website. We feature a number of qualifications on our website as well that include:
- ProMover with the American Moving & Storage
- Fully accredited with the Better Business Bureau
- Proud agent of Allied Van lines
If you can’t find positive reviews or qualifications for a particular business online, they probably aren’t worth your time.
Get an Accurate Moving Estimate
Once you’ve found a few Seattle movers that have impressed you with their affiliations, it’s time to give them a call. Getting an accurate estimate is a great way to narrow down your choices even further.
Quality movers will ask you several questions in order to determine your needs. By figuring out those needs, they will be able to provide you with an accurate estimate. Getting an estimate over the phone is a good start, but the very best movers offer in-home estimates as well.
Make sure you ask about all of the services they offer, and which services are offered by a third party. This is also a good opportunity for you to compare the professionalism of each mover you call and how thorough they’re likely to be.
Book Your Seattle Moving Company as Early as Possible
Because the summer is such a popular time to move, you want to make sure you do your homework early. If you leave hiring a Seattle moving company to the last minute, you’ll end up getting stuck with one that doesn’t provide the level of service you deserve. Plan at least several weeks ahead of time, but a month or two in advance is even better.
