Moving from one home to the next can be a stressful and challenging process. During this time you realize just how important it is to delegate the chores and tasks involved to minimize the stress and make the move smoother and easier on everyone in your family. However, you don't want to hire just anyone to help you move, so be sure to follow these tips and suggestions when hiring a moving company to pack you up and send you on your way.
Selecting a Moving Company
Research the company's reputation. Look for online reviews, and solicit suggestions from your friends and family in the area who might have used them in the past. 

Solicit quotes from several movers. Make sure the quotes are as detailed as possible and include things like moving appliances, pianos, and other large items that can all influence the final cost of your move.

If you are moving across state lines, be sure to make sure the mover is licensed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Also, check to see they carry insurance and are up to date on all of their other licensing requirements.

Things to Watch Out For
Make sure you get everything in writing, and read through everything carefully before you sign any contracts or agreements. Be especially cognizant of fees and expenses that are included and those that are xtra. Be sure that you understand how they will be applied when the final bill is tallied. This will help minimize confusion and ensure that your mover understands your budget and how much you are willing to spend.
Helping Your Mover Help You
As with any move, a little preparation goes a long way towards making things go smoother. That's why it is always a good idea to invite the moving company to visit your home before you move so that they can look around and determine entry/exit points and know exactly what tools they should bring with them on moving day. This is also an opportunity for them to tell you what things they need you to complete before they come in and start work.
