Five Tips for Choosing the Right Moving Company

Moving Company

When you have a looming moving date, choosing a moving company to assist with your move can be an important step in the process. However, there are a lot of moving companies to choose from, and knowing which one will be the best for your specific moving needs can be a challenge. At Glaser & Sons Mooving, we find that there are a few different things to consider as you choose your moving company, so we’ve provided some quick tips:

1.  Get Recommendations – Asking your friends and neighbors who they prefer for their moving needs can go a long way to telling you where you should start. Rather than calling every mover in town, asking the people you trust most will give you a shorter list to begin.

2.  Do A Little Research – Once you have an initial list of moving companies, do a little research about the background of the company and look at their reviews. You may be able to narrow down your search further with this step.

3.  Ask for an Estimate – You have your top moving company choices – now what? If possible, ask for an in-home estimate. You’ll want to be able to compare quotes and services so you can choose the moving company that will best meet your needs.

4.  Check for Licenses & Insurance – Because you are putting your personal belongings in the hands of someone else, checking to make sure your preferred moving company is licensed and insured can go a long way to giving you confidence on your moving day.

5.  Choose Your Mover – At Glaser & Sons Mooving, we think you’ll find that we meet all of your criteria when you need a moving company, and we’ll be happy to provide the services and solutions you need to make your upcoming move a success. Contact us today to get started!

Advice from Your Moving Company: How to Make Packing Easier

Moving CompanyAs a moving company, one thing we hear from our clients time and time again is how much they dread packing up their belongings. Since our moving company is here to make life easier, here are some helpful packing tips to use if you’re on the brink of a move:

  • Use clear plastic bins —When you’re packing, put the things you’ll need FIRST once you get to your new home in clear plastic bins so you can find them easily. Doing this is good for things like toilet paper, essential kitchen gadgets, trash bags, towels, and anything you’re going to need during those first few days.
  • Stack plates vertically — As a moving company, we see people pack their plates and bowls horizontally in boxes all the time, and this process usually leads to one or two casualties. To keep your plates and bowls from breaking in your move, stack them vertically in boxes, like records.
  • Cover drawers in plastic wrap — Instead of unpacking all of your dresser drawers, cover the tops with plastic wrap before you move. This way, you can leave things exactly as you left them without having to pack and unpack all of your drawers.
  • Keep sandwich bags handy — As you take apart furniture and things with screws and hardware, place the contents in small plastic sandwich bags. Then, label them and tape them to the back of the item they correspond to.
