May is National Moving Month and it ushers in the start of the busiest time of year for professional movers. At the peak of the moving season, quality professional moving companies in Orange County can book months in advance. May is the time to research and select your summer mover.
With most families moving when school is out, if you don’t plan ahead – and book your mover well in advance – you could be scrambling to find just a mover at the last minute. You want to entrust your household goods to quality Orange County movers – not just any mover.
Finding a Quality Mover is Paramount
You’ve heard the horror stories: belongings arrive at a new location completely damaged, items are held until exorbitant hidden fees are paid and sometimes, the items never arrive at all. Scammers know that during this time of year, demand for Orange County movers can outweigh resources, and they take this as their opportunity to get money.
Alex Moving & Storage is a full-service professional Orange County residential mover committed to providing our community with quality moving services at fair and affordable prices. Check out our tips below to find out more about how you can avoid scammers this summer and how we can help you have an easy and efficient move.
Ask the Right Questions
Moving can feel completely overwhelming and it can be difficult to know how to even begin the process. As you’re looking at potential moving companies, ask questions like:
- How are your services priced?
- Is there a full-service option?
- Can you handle specialized moves?
- Are packing and moving materials included?
- Do you have customer reviews or a list of references?
- What are your professional affiliations?
- Are all of your movers properly licensed and insured?
At Alex Moving & Storage, we love providing information to our customers to help them feel 100% confident in their choice and we offer customer reviews right here on our website.
Don’t Choose Movers on Price Alone
Price is important when choosing a professional mover, and you want to be sure you choose an Orange County moving company that can work with your budget. Scammers often lure potential customers in with unbeatable prices, only to hike up the fees later in the move.
We can’t quote you costs as low as scammers can, but we do offer up-front, honest, and transparent pricing so you know exactly what to expect with NO hidden fees or charges. If a price looks too good to be true, it probably is.
Get a Written Estimate in Person
Getting a quote over the phone is easy, but not very accurate. Without actually seeing what a customer has, it’s difficult to say what services will be needed, leading to a significant difference between quote and the actual cost to move.
We begin every move by sending a trained pro to survey belongings and then provide a written, in-home estimate based upon the specific needs of the individual. With accurate price quotes from Alex Moving & Storage, you won’t have to worry about any unpleasant surprises when you receive your bill.
There are many reputable moving companies in Orange County, but it is important to be aware that there are plenty of companies trying to make a quick buck. Planning ahead is the best way to avoid scams and get the hassle-free relocation you want.
