Make the Most of Your Movers in New Orleans

If you chose to use movers to help in your transition, there’s a lot you can do to save time, money and effort. First, make sure you have proper quotes and do your research on the Internet to ensure that the agency you choose is reputable, professional and affordable.

It should never be stressful finding great movers. New Orleans is home to many agencies that can turn moving into an easy, affordable process so you can enjoy your new home as soon as possible.

Here are some tips on how to make the most of your movers:

Have Them Take Inventory
Reputable movers will take inventory of all of your belongings to determine bulk and weight. The estimator should walk through and check all storage spaces, garages, sheds, bookcases, cupboards, closets and drawers. Price is often determined by weight and space and the only way to get an accurate idea is for the representative to see everything in person.

Beware of Extra Fees
Look for little fees in the contract that might not make sense to you. You can be charged extra if moving professionals have to negotiate stairs, elevators or even a narrow street. You can also save money by packing your own things and avoiding any kind of packing fees. At the end of the day, remember to ask about all additional fees ahead of the move.

Choose a Different Date
Try to move on weekday where hourly rates for movers are at a minimum. Also avoid the first or last week of the month, as those are the most popular times for moving. If you can, you might even want to wait to move until the winter when fees will be at an all-year low.

Be Ready When Moving Professionals Arrive
Make sure ahead of time that your origin and destination locations are ready. Have everything packed and ready to go and have clear paths to move things. If necessary, reserve elevators and parking spaces.

Have your inventory of items ready to go and check things off as the moving professionals put them into the truck and then again when they are unloaded. When the move is complete, do a walk-through of the property to make sure nothing is left behind.
