Frequently asked questions about movers

How much do movers cost?

Credible long distance movers cost a minimum of $1500.The exact cost of your move will really depend on exactly what's moving.This is why its very important to get an in home estimate for any move larger than one or two rooms.

Why use professional movers?

There are a few good reasons to hire professional movers. The first reason is, no one really likes being asked to help their friends move. Think about it, do you want to spend 5 hours carrying furniture and loading boxes for a few slices of pizza? Hiring a few random guys with a truck can prove very expensive because they may not have the experience neccessary to do the best job possible. With professional movers you can know that all of your items will arrive safely. Also hiring unlicensed movers or even doing it yourself with the help of a friend puts you at a big insurance liability in the case that anyone is injured. With a moving company all of the workers are bonded and insured, plus they already know exactly how to move any items which you need to move safely. Another good reason to hire professional movers is that a good long distance moving company won't just help you move your stuff, they will free up valuable time and help you plan your transition into your new home.
