Santa Ana moving company moving another satisfied customer

Not every Santa Ana moving company is the same. A quick search will get you anything from huge, national companies to one man shops that rent trucks every time they have a move. And because of this, the level of service that you will get from each company is also very different.

The first thing that you need to realize is that you have to think about what it is that you want before you can choose a moving company. Do you need full packing and unpacking services? Are you looking for the cheapest option, no matter the level of service? Do you have any specialty items that you need moved? Are you looking to move across the country or just across Santa Ana? All of these issues can have a big impact on what moving company is right for you.

What Should You Look For In A Moving Company

1 – Make sure that the company is licensed and insured

Think about this for a second – you are loading all of your worldly possessions into a truck, driven by a stranger. Of course you did your due diligence to make sure that the company has a good reputation and that the drivers will take care of your things. But even if the driver is the most careful person in the world, things can happen. And you do not want to find out after there is damage that the company is not insured. Make sure to ask if they are insured (and you may even want to see it in writing just to protect yourself).

2 – Hire a Company That Will Do an In Home Estimate

Phones are amazing inventions, but not everything can be done over the phone. If you want an accurate estimate, then the moving company will need to be able to see the items that they will be moving and take a look at how difficult it will be to get things out of your space. If you need full packing service, they need to know what kinds and how many boxes to bring. Of course in a pinch, you may be able to get a decent estimate by sending pictures to the company, but a good moving company will always prefer to do an in-home estimate.

And for you, this is very important to you as well. You want them to be able to take a look beforehand so that they can give you an accurate estimate. We hear horror stories all the time about people who got an estimate over the phone. Then, the movers show up and “see how much stuff needs to be moved” and quote a much higher price. The poor customer is trapped because they need to move and they know that they will not be able to get another moving company on short notice. So, get an in-home estimate in writing.

You are trusting the moving company that you choose with a lot of your things, so you want to make sure that you choose the right one. Don’t pick the cheapest just because of price. You will be sorry most of the time. You want to talk to the mover, ask all of the questions that you want answered, and choose the one that you trust with your move.
