Moving is a real adventure. When you decide to move, you have to start by finding a new home, which is no easy task. Once that’s done, the next step is to decide how to go about the move. You’ve decided to deal with professionals rather than do everything yourself. It’s an excellent decision, and will save you a lot of trouble and backache. Now that you’ve decided to give yourself this gift, you don’t want to empty your wallet. Many moving companies offer similar services at quite different prices. Today we’re sharing some of our tips for choosing a good-value moving company in Montreal.
Choosing a local company
By choosing a moving company in Montreal, in addition to encouraging local business, you’ll probably get a lower price. The more the company has to move its truck, the higher the price. By choosing a company close to home, you may reduce the price of your local move. What’s more, local companies often deal with fewer middlemen, allowing them to cut costs even further. Local companies know Montreal well, and will be able to cope with the city’s challenges during the move. They’ll know how to react to unforeseen circumstances, so you don’t have to pay extra.
Choose a company that offers a fixed-price move
Choosing a company that offers a clear, fixed-price package means fewer surprises. The cost the company offers you will be the one you pay, barring any major unforeseen events. This makes it easier for you to establish the budget associated with your move. It sometimes happens that companies are more or less clear and promise you a price, and in the end, the price is much higher. Other companies tell you a price per hour, without mentioning that you have to pay each worker at that price, which multiplies the amount you thought you were paying!
Professional, honest company
Choose a professional company with well-trained crews and well-equipped moving trucks. The better equipped they are, the better they’ll be able to cope with the unexpected. Your furniture will be in good hands, and you won’t have to worry about breakage. Avoiding breakage and having to buy things all over again is a great way to save money! Choosing a professional moving company also means choosing an honest one, one that won’t try to pull the wool over your eyes and cost you extra. We’ve all heard moving horror stories, so make sure you choose a 5-star moving company.
