moving boxes
Are you planning on moving to Seattle? A long-distance move or even a move across the state can be stressful, but with a little careful thought and planning, you can find a reliable company to make the processes easier.

Here are a few tips to selecting the right company for your move.

Do Your Research

Start your search for a mover online. Most moving companies will have a list of services on their website. Read online reviews about the moving company, and check their credibility with the Better Business Bureau.

Ask Questions

Don’t be afraid to ask the tough questions of companies that you are looking to contract. In addition to rates and logistics, find out about the company’s insurance coverage. Ask how valuables are transported, and what precautions are taken to prevent breakage or loss. What will the moving company need from you to get the estimate process going?

Break Down the Costs

Some movers expect a one-time fee, while others break down the cost into several categories, from mileage to packing materials and special delicate items. If you want the movers to take plants or pack fragile items, ask about those terms as well. Make sure you know exactly what you are getting for the quoted fee.

Moving to Seattle can be an exciting adventure, and by finding the right mover, you can make it a smooth transition.
