When is the ideal time to move?
The ideal time for a move depends on various factors – atmospheric conditions, holidays, government regulations, and moving policies. You should try to avoid peak season, if possible (summers and year-end). On a personal level, you should consider the urgency of the move, children’s education, and other family priorities. Better planning leads to a stress-free move.
How much time does the entire moving process take?
It depends on many factors, like the time of move, shipment size, distance, and the choice of mover and packer. At A-Absolute Moving & Hauling, we offer consultation before executing a plan for your move. The time duration is estimated thereafter – and strictly adhered to.
How can I cut down my expenses?
Advance planning can save you hundred of dollars. Moving companies usually charge high for last minute jobs, and in peak season. Do not plan your move on busy days. Moreover, reduce the load and plan a garbage sale before moving. You can also go for “partial packing” services to reduce expenses.
What is the right time to begin packing?
Starting a few days to a few weeks before your actual move date helps you to manage your affairs better.
How can I choose a reliable moving company?
Check that the chosen moving company is bonded, licensed and insured. You should be clear about the total expenditure of your move. Track down the history and record of the moving company. Talk to the concerned person and ask pertinent questions. Find out the company’s liability policy and whether you are covered or not.
Is there any additional cost for packing material?
Any supplementary material that you use for your packing needs is charged additionally.
