Many times, people look at low costs and end up hiring shady movers, who levy hidden charges at the end of the procedure. You definitely do not want to give the responsibility of your valuable and loved furniture items to someone who is not going to handle things with care. It is equally important to note that a higher price does not equal safer, better and satisfactory service. Instead, important things such as reviews, ratings, recommendations and testimonials should be considered before hiring a moving company.


Also, it is highly important to get a fixed written estimate from the moving company, stating clearly their services, costs and extras. This is to eliminate all possibilities of shady business transactions or hike in costs when the move is finalized.


So, we recommend you to get a written contract from the moving company, mentioning full details about the stuff to be moved, cost per hour and the total cost (according to the estimated time required), the insurance policy, so that in case anything goes wrong, you can always seek legal address.
