Moving from one home to another in Chicago ranks very high on the “stress list,” although the thoughts of a new home are exciting, but the whole process can be very daunting. When you are looking for reliable, cost-effective professional movers in Chicago, you can save money and bring down the stress level by following a few proven tips.
Always Ask For Recommendations:
As is true for most things, personal recommendations are better than random ads in the phone book. Talk to people you know at work as well as friends and the real estate agent you have been dealing with. Once you have a few names, call, and arrange an in-house estimate. If the company tries to give you an estimate over the phone, this is not a good sign, move on to the next company.
You can learn a lot about a professional mover from their website. Go online and do a quick check of their services. Check with the Chicago Better Business Bureau to see if there are any unresolved complaints. If the company is recognized by the Illinois Movers’ and Warehousemen’s Association and the American Moving and Storage Association, you are assured they are known for quality and reliability.
Don’t Hold Anything Back:
The “best surprise is no surprise,” and the way to ensure that the price you are given is the price you will pay is to ensure the estimator sees everything that is to be moved. Discuss any abnormal conditions at your new home, and just as you divulge everything, the estimator should do the same. Find out if the company will do the work themselves, and how long the company has been doing business in Chicago. By the time the estimator has wrapped up, you should know that they have worked hard to gain their reputation as quality professional movers.
