Are you looking for a professional and affordable moving company in NYC? Moving can be an expensive proposition, and if you can find an affordable moving company with years of NYC experience, your will have a much better moving experience.
But how do you go about finding such a moving company?
After all, some moving companies have very little experience and even less insurance, and you don’t want to entrust all of your worldly possessions with an unproven company. In the best case scenario, you’ll hire an affordable company that has decades of New York-specific experience under its belt. Here’s how to find such a company and ensure a successful move:
Find a Moving Company With Experience
Moving a household from one location to another seems like a fairly straightforward, simple task, but in New York City, it’s important to find a moving company with plenty of experience. Moving requires attention to detail, proven logistical systems, and contingency plans, and brand new companies tend to be shaky in these areas.
U.Santini has been serving NYC for more than 80 years, and over the decades we’ve learned many ways to move our clients more efficiently and affordably, and we’ve incorporated new technologies as they come along. This experience, plus the benefit of years of loyalty to existing customers, makes for pleasant, stress-free moving.
Check With the Better Business Bureau
When people have problems with local companies, they report their experiences to the Better Business Bureau. BBB standards for trust are high, so when you find a moving company that is accredited by the BBB, you know you’re in good hands.
We’re proud to have an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau on a scale of A+ to F. This rating is based on the fact that we have no complaints within the last three years. Another factor for our A+ rating is that we’ve been operating for so long.
Get Estimate Quotes
Once you’ve narrowed your list of movers down to those with high ratings from the BBB and those with significant experience, go ahead and gather estimate quotes. Be sure to ask for details about the quote. Ask if there are any hidden fees, and find out exactly what the quote includes.
Here at U.Santini, we offer free moving estimates. We’ve designed our estimates to help you think through your moving plans so you can consider all the resources you may need. You can sign up for an estimate here.
Look For a Full-Service Moving Company
Even if you don’t plan on using all of the services offered by a moving company, it’s a good idea to go with a company that provides many different services. Why? Because moving can be unpredictable, and it’s helpful to have back-up resources.
For example, if your home loan doesn’t close on time, you may need to put your belongings in storage temporarily. If you have decided to work with a moving company that has its own storage facilities, your life will be much easier during the interim between when you move out of your old home and into your new one.
It’s also nice to work with a moving company that offers professional packing services, supplies, and custom services like office and international moving.
Choose the Right Time to Move
You’ll likely get a better price on your move if you choose a moving day that is less busy. These days include mid-week days in the middle of the month or during the winter months. Weekends during the summer, especially at the beginning or end of the month, are extremely busy, and you may have a difficult time scheduling your move during these times. If you can be flexible on your moving dates you can usually get a better price.
