Getting ready for a big move can be as stressful as it is exciting! Once you’ve found the perfect apartment, you have to figure out how to get all of your belongings into it! If you’ve decided to hire a moving company in Albany, NY, there are a few things to keep in mind during your search:
Watch for Scams – If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Be sure the company is licensed and insured, and if you can, take referrals from friends and family. Do your research, and ask for an in-home estimate from the company so you can get the most accurate quote.
Know the Rules – Most moving companies will only move your belongings if they’re secured, according to company standards. Some companies will only move items they are packed away in boxes. Most all company will not move breakables unless they are wrapped. Being aware of these rules will help you to best prepare for your moving date.
Do What You Can – That being said, you can likely save yourself a great deal of money if you pack your items yourself. Once you know what the company standards for packing are, pack your items accordingly, and have them ready to go when the movers arrive. If the company charges by the hour, you’ll want to minimize the time as much as you can. If possible, it may also be helpful to move some of the smaller items yourself in your own vehicle.
Happy moving! We can’t wait to see at your new place at Shaker Run Apartments soon!
