Wherever you are moving, there are two things you need. The first is a lot of energy that will help you through the moving process. Everyone knows it can be hard, it can be exhausting, and a thing of nightmares! However, by keeping your head up and planning everything up front, you will be able to bare through it. The second thing you will need is Orange Movers. You need professional West Park movers because they can turn a stressful move into an easy task. In this article, find out why we are the best movers there are, as well as a little more about West Park itself.
A little about West Park
West Park (or the City of West Park – officially), is a municipality in Broward County in Florida. Here you can find the neighborhoods of Carver Ranches, Miami Gardens (Broward County), Utopia and Lake Forest. The name comes from its location – the city lies west of Pembroke Park town. Another important location is its neighboring county – the Miami-Dade County. Finally, at the 2010 census, the population of West Park was 14,156. West Park is pretty diverse and has a higher population than most other cities and towns in Florida.
How to pick the best West Park Movers
So, now that we have talked about the city itself, let’s discuss what makes a great mover. First, let’s look at the steps you need to take:
- get West Park Movers recommendations;
- screen your moving companies;
- do in-house estimates;
- compare the bids.
These simple steps can take from a couple of weeks up to a couple of months. Experts recommend you start looking for good movers around 90 days prior to the moving date. This way, you will have time to find the right moving company and figure out both the cost and the steps of your move.
Get West Park Movers recommendations
The first thing you will want to know is what local moving companies in Miami there actually are. There are a couple ways in which you can go about doing this. First, you can search for them online. The internet makes it so that you have all the information you need right at your fingertips – the only thing you need to learn is how to use it. You should also learn to figure out which information is good, and which you should not trust.
A better, albeit tougher way, will be to ask the people you know. Your family, friends, colleges – anyone is fair game. You can ask them if they, or someone they know, has moved recently. They might have stellar recommendations for you, or they might be able to tell you about a company you should steer away from. These are the people you can (hopefully) trust, so this is why here you save time you would waste on checking the information you get.
Read the moving company reviews
After you have gathered a list of a couple of West Park Movers, you will want to screen them online. There are many websites that offer moving company reviews, but make sure you find the ones that are reliable. When looking into reviews, watch out for negative comments. If there is a trend appearing in all the reviews, maybe the moving company has a problem but it is unwilling to solve it.
You should also be careful with only 5-star reviews. It is perfectly normal for a company that has been working for quite some time to have a couple of unsatisfied clients here and there. Remember, reviews can be manufactured. Take everything you read online with a grain of salt.
After you have thinned the list down to a couple of candidates, it is time to call them in for an estimate. First, take notice of how they talk to you on the phone. This attitude can tell you a lot about the way in which they treat their clients. Do not ever trust a moving company that wants to give an estimate over the phone or online. You need to arrange for an in-house estimate, and the company representative needs to come to look at your things.
Also, pay attention to how professional the person who is doing an estimate is. Professional furniture movers will look thoroughly through your items. They will take everything into consideration, and might even need to look into your wardrobes and cupboards. You should use this time to ask the company representative any questions that you might have about the moving company.
By the time the estimate is done, you should have a written estimate with you. You also need to have the company’s U.S. DOT number, the company’s full name, and address, as well as the company’s contact information. You can also ask for a couple of references to screen your company further. Make sure you call the references and ask them detailed questions about their experience. Questions such as “What were you satisfied with the least?” or “Did you have any negative experiences with the move?” are perfectly fine to ask.
Compare the West Park movers’ bids
Finally, after all the estimates are done, it’s time to compare the bids you received and pick the right West Park movers for you. Be careful with the company whose bid is too low. Make a point of asking them about any hidden or unexpected costs. Also, make sure you examine the estimates they gave you. If it is a binding estimate, then the cost of the move cannot exceed the number on the form. However, if it is a non-binding estimate, then the company can charge you around 10% more than what they put on the paper.
Finally, don’t be afraid to negotiate with your West Park movers. Figure out the best time for both yourself and them, and ask them for a lower price. For example, most of the moves happen during summer, so moving during winter – when there’s less work for movers – might benefit you and them both. Finding the right company will make your move easy, so think carefully about this.
