How To Find A Reliable Mover In Colorado
Getting ready to move to a new apartment, condo, townhome or home in Denver, Loveland, Colorado Springs or Boulder? No matter where you are moving to in Colorado, it’s important to find a mover you can count on. After all, there are lots of fly-by-night moving companies that are anything BUT reliable. The moving experts at Cowboy Moving & Storage have put together this list of tips so you can find a mover that is reliable, trustworthy and dependable.
Hire a local mover. When you hire a moving company based in your area, you'll avoid being tricked into doing business with a mover operating solely over the internet. You want to be sure your mover has an actual headquarters in a building so if there’s an issue, you can track them down.
Get three estimates. It’s important to get multiple written estimates. Be suspicious if an estimate is unusually low. It may be a sign of scam. Make sure you get a legal estimate/contract and nothing handwritten or verbal.
Ask questions. Moving isn’t cheap so you want to be sure you’re hiring a mover that can deliver. Ask how many moving trucks and vans they have in their fleet and the average age of their moving vehicles. The last thing you want to do is hire a company with only a few trucks. If there’s a breakdown, you could end up without a moving vehicle on your moving day.
Read reviews and complaints. Search the web for online reviews to see what other customers are saying about the company. Find out if the company has a report with the Better Business Bureau, and look at the letter grade the BBB has assigned the mover.
Be wary of large deposit requirements. A reputable moving company won’t require a deposit and won’t require any payment until your belongings are delivered. Put any payments on a credit card, so you can contest the charge if there's wrongdoing.
Ask about overages before your move. A reputable moving company can explain the process if for some reason there is an increase from the estimate. This usually involves a conversation, approval for the increased cost and a signature on the change order. If a mover tries to make you pay more and holds your belongings hostage, contact law enforcement.
