10 Questions to Ask Your Austin Movers
Hiring full service movers requires a certain amount of trust and faith. You want to know that you have found the best Austin movers to get the job done. Instead of guessing, here are some of the questions to ask the movers before you decide to hire them:
- License and Insurance
We strongly recommend avoiding moving companies that do not have the appropriate licenses and insurance. Any local Austin movers should have the correct licenses and moving insurance and any company that does not, can be liability.
- Full Service Moving?
Are these full-service Austin movers? A full service moving company will do all the work for you. They pack, load, transport and then unpack all your belongings for you. Ask the movers to explain how much of the moving process they handle so you can be prepared for their arrival.
- Do You Have Storage Available?
If you plan on arriving the day after your belongings arrive, it may be best to put them into storage. Look for Austin movers that provide storage options so you don’t have to find a third party to get involved in the already complicated moving process.
- What Other Moving Services Do You Offer?
Do these Austin movers offer auto moving services, commercial moving services or any other service you may be able to benefit from?
- Do You Have Reviews?
Check for online reviews of all the Austin movers you are considering for the job, but don’t base your decision on the reviews alone. Ask the moving company if they have reviews that they recommend you check out as well.
- What About Free Moving Estimates?
Free moving estimates are typically standard and most Austin movers will provide them for you. If the company doesn’t offer free moving estimates, then consider a different Austin moving company.
- Do You Offer Any Discounts?
It never hurts to ask for additional discounts.
- Are They Local or National?
Regardless of whether you are moving locally or long distance, ask the movers if they are a national moving company or a local moving company. If the moving company is national that usually means they have been in business for a long time and they probably have a pretty good reputation.
- Who to Speak to Throughout the Move
You’re going to ask the movers a lot of questions and you will probably have some suggestions or feedback at the end of the moving process. All My Sons Moving & Storage assigns moving coordinators to each project we take on. Ask the movers if they do something similar.
- Do They Have Questions for You?
Ask the movers if they have questions for you. You may have missed something important, so this is their opportunity to fire questions at you and clear up any potential miscommunications and prevent future issues.
