Local Moving Services in Denver--Worth the Money - Part 1

Now that you've unloaded your house and have a new residence lined up, party time's over—it is time to pack up all your things and lug them across town to the new house. Since you are just going a hop, skip and a jump or maybe a couple miles away, it is alluring to try to manage the move yourself--after all, how hard can it be to rent a truck and get some pals over to load your furniture?

Ask anyone who has ever moved--it can be (and normally is) really, really taxing. Moving is enough of a pain without the pressure of a Do-It-Yourself project, and now is not the time to think you can binge watch YouTube videos on how to pack a truck and be able to do it flawlessly. Your kids are probably worried about changing schools and making friends, your significant other is unnerved about a new dry cleaner and driving routine, and the last thing you need to do is add to the stress by trying a DIY move in Denver.

Why Local?

Why not? A local company in Denver has its advantages. First, they know the ins and outs of the area and won't be depending on their phones to navigate to your new residence. Also, they should know what size of moving vehicle will best be suited for which areas of town, which can be very helpful if you are moving to a gated community or a location that has truck restrictions. Second, a local company has a lot more invested in doing a great job for you--word of mouth moves fast, and if you're not pleased with the move, then they have to deal with the bad reviews. When you hire locally, you are also keeping the in-town economy going-- a win/win for everybody in Denver

Questions They'll Have

When you contact the movers, they will have lots of questions, so keep this basic information handy. Most of it you know without really having to research, but there will be a couple questions that you might have to think about. It's probably a good idea to take an inventory of your things, one room at a time, because moving is mind-boggling enough that you don't want to forget all the stuff in the storage shed.

How many bedrooms? Do you have a garage, basement, storage shed, or all three? Does your barn have a loft? Do you have a pool table, or anything really, really large like a standing safe? Any play equipment like trampolines or basketball goals? How about any outside items that will be moving?

They'll also want to know if you have antiques or art. If you do have unusually valuable things, the movers will most likely require additional information about these items.

After you have provided this basic information, you will most likely be provided with a ballpark estimate and an option for a free in-home survey for your local move in Denver. An in-home survey is much more specific and nails down the cost with much more precision than the initial ballpark estimate. It covers the exact services that you are requesting. During the survey is a great time to ask any and all burning questions that you have come to your mind.

Best. Move. Ever!
Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
