Interviewing Moving Companies

Once you've finally finished house hunting and have looked at enough Saint Norbert or Mississauga homes for sale to last you a lifetime it's time to move on to the next stage of owning a home. One step that you will have to complete once you've signed on the dotted line and the keys to your new piece of Saint Norbert or Lindsay Ontario real estate property have been handed over to you is to move from your old home to your new home.

The moving process can be a bit of hassle, especially if you plan on moving everything yourself, so you need to come up with a plan that will make things much easier on you. One thing you can do to make the process of moving simpler is to hire a moving company. Moving companies know exactly what it takes to move people in and out of their Saint Norbert houses or Toronto lofts and they can use their knowledge and expertise to help you out during your move.

If asking your Saint Norbert or Vaughan real estate agents for moving company recommendations didn't turn out so well then you should start interviewing as many moving companies as you possibly can. It's not wise to just hire the first moving company you interview because they might end up being a horrible fit for you and your situation. You need to take the time to interview moving companies and hire the one you believe will do the best job for you.

If you're unsure of what questions to ask during the interview process then let us help you out with that as we've compiled a list of questions you should ask when interviewing moving companies. Read below to see our list:

-What are your rates and estimates?
-How do you charge? Hourly? Distance traveled?
-Will there be any additional fees?
-Do you provide insurance? If so, how much does it cost?
-How do you protect and label items?
-Do you have any unsolved complaints or claims against your company?
-Can you please provide us with a list of referrals and recommendations?
-Are you insured and bonded?
-How experienced are your movers?
-Do you have a cancellation policy?
-How long do you estimate the move will take?
-Do you offer packing and unpacking services?
-How many years have you been in business for?

Hopefully the list of questions we've provided you will be enough to get you started on your moving company search. You can also use this list of questions the next time you find yourself looking at homes for sale in Oshawa or Saint Norbert. Good luck!
