movers in spokaneMoving is an incredibly stressful time, and you don’t want to make it more stressful by choosing to hire movers in Spokane that won’t do a great job. Choosing the right movers can have a huge impact on the quality of your move. The Census Bureau reports that 16.8% of Americans have needed to relocate since 1980. In addition, about 63% of adults have moved somewhere new at some point in their lifetime, while only 37% have never left their hometowns. Renters are especially prone to relocation, with one-third moving each year. Check out our tips on finding the best possible company to handle your move!

Thorough Initial Check
When you have a local mover come in to see what you have that needs to be moved, check on how thorough they are. If they don’t spare much more than a glance around each room before throwing an estimate out there, it’s almost certain that the estimate will be very off. The key is to sit down with the movers beforehand and figure out what you’ll be moving from your old home to your new one, as well as how much those things will weigh. Much of what a moving company charges is based on weight and space taken up in the truck, so take this into account.

Pay Attention to References
This is incredibly important. If you have any friends who have recently moved, ask them what company they used and what the experience was like. You likely have a short list of what you’re looking for in a company, so asking around will allow you to see which ones match up.

Get Everything in Writing
This goes for any business transaction really, but don’t forget that anything you or the movers do should be in writing. This protects both you and the company should anything go wrong. The only things that will hold up in a court of law will be those in writing. In addition, it just gives you peace of mind — you’ll know where your things are and when they’ll get to the new home.
