How to Hire a Local Moving Company in Raleigh

Moving is often ranked as one of the more stressful events in life. So it is completely natural to feel a little anxious if you have the moves coming up. Perhaps you or someone you know has had a bad experience. Well, not to worry you have come to the right place. This guide will help you navigate through the process of hiring a moving company in Raleigh!

Following these three simple, effective steps will ensure you have a solid, reliable crew show up at your door on moving day.

Step 1 – Make use of the Better Business Bureau Sorting Tool To Find Member Companies:

"Furniture Movers" is by far the most researched category in the BBB, and is the perfect place for you to begin your search for a moving company as well. To do this visit the BBB website. You can also search online for Raleigh's best moving companies or head to Crabtree Family Moving. They are reliable moving services located in Raleigh offering all sorts of your moving needs. 

Step 2 – Arrange 3 Quotes In Person

Each company will have a rating anywhere from A + (highest) to F (lowest). Look for companies with a rating that is feasible and that the information on their website appears to fit your needs and it makes sense for you. (For example, if you move a long distance, focus on companies that specialize in distance moving). Be prepared to set up an extra quote in case one of the companies do not show up or do not get back to you with a quote after their visit.

Step 3: Evaluate Quotes

Now that you have three of your quote in front of you, it's time to finish the last step – choosing the best company from these. The middle part and the most important of the quote will properly evaluate the amount of furniture, which must be listed somewhere on a good quote in cubic feet or pounds (1 cubic foot = 7 pounds). Everything else necessary to plan and price your move will follow from this – number of movers, number and size of trucks, and so on.
