Finding a Mover in Kelowna
Before you get a relocation estimate, remove items you’re uncertain you’d like to have at your new residence. This helps keep moving costs and stress levels down.
Finding a reputable mover is essential if you’d like to come away with a positive experience. Go online and check out their reviews. Another tip is to call the company and see how professional they are over the phone. If they seem professional, schedule an appointment for them to come out for an onsite estimate. Being onsite will help the moving consultant get a clear picture of your relocation needs and determine the best way to organize your belongings.
Planning an Unexpected Move
Have you just discovered that you will need to relocate the family due to your job and you’re just looking for a starting off point? These tips will help you make the most out of an unexpected move.
The first thing to do is check out the movers available to you and make sure that they have been around for a number of years. Check to see that they are members of their local Chamber of Commerce. Then, contact the Chamber of Commerce to learn about the company’s rating score and if they have any complaints. If you are satisfied with the information you receive, give the company a call to arrange an estimate in your home.
If you are moving long distance, again check for membership with the Chamber of Commerce. Next, find out if they are also members of a van line. This is very important as agents of a van line are also accountable to the van lines for the quality and service to you, the customer. By using a van line, you will know when your household items will arrive at your new residence. They should also provide you with the terms and conditions before your shipment leaves its point of origin.
Next, arrange an in-home estimate before you sell your home. This will give you a clear picture of your moving costs so you can work it into to your relocation expenses.
Remember: Always check out your mover’s ratings by visiting websites such as:
