Hiring movers can feel a little overwhelming. With so many moving companies to choose from, where do you even begin in your search to hire movers?

Before you even begin your search, it’s important to understand what kind of move you’re making.  Do you need labor only services because you’re renting your own truck and driving it yourself?  Do you need local movers with a truck to take your belongings from your old home to your new home?  Do you need interstate movers to take your belonging out of state?  Knowing these things will help you find the right movers. 

Once you find a mover that seems to suit your needs, it’s time to inquire with them.  Some things you will want to discuss include:

Estimated Cost

Most professional movers can give you an estimated cost over the phone or on their website.  You’ll answer a series of questions about the size of your home, the types of furniture and boxes you need to be moved, and the distance between pickup and delivery.  In turn, you’ll receive an estimate on what it will cost.

At Elite Moving, you can do this directly from our website or call our incredible office team to get your quote.

Additional Costs

You’ll want to mention some things to your mover to determine if you’ll have any additional charges.  Having this conversation early on can prevent unexpected charges on the day of the move.  Some things to discuss are any oversized furniture pieces that may require special handling, the need for packing materials or special moving equipment, packing services, furniture disassembly/reassembly, etc.

At Elite Moving, we offer solutions for every budget. This means we tailor our quotes to only charge you for the services you truly need. Our robust service offerings provide solutions for everything from labor only to full-service, long-distance moves.

Additional Insurance

All of our moves carry standard insurance, which is 60 cents per pound and is sometimes not enough to cover the true cost of a damaged item. Before you purchase more insurance, look into your home insurance to see if they offer additional coverage for moving.  If they do not, or you need additional insurance coverage, you should purchase an additional policy.

At Elite Moving, we’ve partnered with movinginsurance.com to provide you an easy and secure solution that will give you that extra peace of mind.  If you enter promo code ELT25, you’ll receive a $25 discount.
