The recommendation of a mover by a relative, via word of mouth, or the consultation of opinions of former customers can lead you to prefer this mover rather than another. It is for this reason that it is essential to consult the testimonials left by customers on the site of the mover. Movers’ lets you speak through a dedicated “Testimonials” section to tell your feelings about the move or read those already present. The second solution to find opinions on your future mover: Google Maps. Our card on Google Maps is also available to leave a comment. You can search by movers near me and come up with the best solutions.
Perform an initial sorting of your goods
Over the years in your home whether in a house or in an apartment, you accumulate business and business without paying attention. Before moving again and before the visit of several movers, we strongly advise you to make an initial sorting of your goods. This will benefit you on several levels:
Make people happy: this first sorting will allow you to donate, sell or throw away some of your business, unused in recent years, which has no sentimental or market value.
Reduce the cost: this sorting will reduce your total volume cubic capacity calculated in m3 to be moved. Fewer goods, fewer boxes, the mover will, therefore, provide you with a cheaper quote than if you had not made this selection.
There is no need to pay for the transportation of goods to throw them away after moving in. It is a good initiative to do this sorting.
