Preparing financially for a move can be stressful for you and your wallet. If you are going to be moving the first thing you should do is figure out how much you would like to participate in the move. Decide whether you will be packing certain items, just the non-fragile items or leaving the packing to the professionals. Once you have made this decision, you should then call the moving company as soon as possible to have them come to your home and do a walk through. You may want to have several movers to your home to interview them and compare pricing. Also, you should go visit the moving company’s facility, so you can see their equipment, and see how your goods will be handled and where they will be stored. Some companies give binding estimates others give non-binding. When it comes to pricing it is common for moving companies to give either an actual or a binding price. Make sure when you compare the estimates be sure you are comparing apples to apples so there will be no surprises. You need to know what it is you will be responsible for at the end of the move. The last thing you need in an already stressful situation is to get an extra bill at the end of the move.
