Which moving company is right for you?
Choosing the right moving company to trust to move your most sacred belongings can be difficult, but it doesn’t have to be a challenge if you follow these tips for moving in San Diego. There are a lot of imitators and fraudulent moving companies ran by someone with a van and a couple of their friends, but we know you want the best people handling your possessions at McCarthy Transfer & Storage.
We live in the digital age now where you don’t necessarily have to depend on the word of mouth family and friends. The best way to start comparing moving companies is to go online and check out review sites such as Angie’s List, Yelp, or Google Reviews to name a few. These reviews can give you a good idea as to who is trustworthy and dependable and who you might not want touching, let alone moving, your belongings. Word of mouth is still a handy and personal way to get recommendations for moving companies, as people move all the time, so there’s a good chance you will get some helpful advice there as well.
The next step in the process would be to go to a company’s website to see who the key players are behind the company and also find out how long they have been in business. Their website can also be a handy place to find out more information about the service that they offer and there are often testimonials from former customers. At McCarthy Transfer & Storage we provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision as to our dependability and experience as a San Diego moving company.
After you have narrowed down a list of companies that you think might be right for your move, contact them to find out more about their availabilities, specials, and any other questions you might have. Many companies will also offer a free quote or come out to your home or business and meet with you. At McCarthy Transfer & Storage we believe in providing a personal touch and will send out a personal consultant to meet with you and provide a written estimate, while answering any questions you have throughout your move.
Another option to consider when moving is to rent a moving truck. While the price might be cheaper in the long run, you also have to consider if you have enough people and the right people moving your belongings. There is also a time factor to consider when you aren’t using professional movers such as our team at McCarthy Transfer & Storage.
Finally, compare the quotes given to you by the moving companies as well as what it would cost you to rent a truck and move yourself. Think about your conversations with the companies and how easy you wish your move to be. Remember that moving can be one of the most stressful life events and try to do whatever you can to alleviate that stress for you moving in San Diego.
