When you are looking for a quality Austin moving company it is important to do your research. Many moving companies in Austin offer a free moving quote. Make sure you have a couple of moving companies you are researching and receiving quotes from, to ensure you receive the best moving rate. Our Austin movers at All My Sons Moving & Storage know that it’s important to ask the right questions for movers to give you an accurate quote. Here are some recommended questions you should ask your local moving companies.
First, confirm the company’s name, address, phone number, website, etc. to make sure you are speaking to the right company. You can ask about their USDOT number and how long they’ve been in business. Make sure you ask about liability coverage- it’s also extremely important to know what their policy is if something happens to your items during the move. Another good question is whether they have their own movers or if they subcontract the job to another group.
Once you confirm that they are a reputable and legitimate moving company, you should ask about their services. Find out what services are included in the moving estimate, what are “extra services” and how much they would charge and what items they cannot move, if any. Can you pack items yourself and will they accept liability for those self-packed items? You should ask about pick up dates and delivery dates and whether they guarantee them. They also may have a policy on what actions they take if your belongings do not arrive on time.
The last thing you want to make sure you ask is about payment. What methods of payment do they accept and what is their cancellation policy? What is the deposit they require, and do you pay the full amount upfront or on moving day?
You should feel comfortable asking as many questions as you need to understand what goes into the moving process. Be wary of a moving company who doesn’t want to answer questions or doesn’t know the answers to your questions. Our Austin movers are happy to answer any questions you have about your upcoming move.
