Now that you've unloaded your house and have a new one on the horizon, party time's over—it's time to pack up all your belongings and get them across town to the new abode. Since you're just going a around the corner or maybe a couple miles away, it's tempting to try to manage the move yourself--after all, how difficult can it be to rent a truck and get some friends over to throw your furniture into the back of the truck?

Ask anyone who has ever moved--it can be (and commonly is) really, really hard. Relocating is plenty of a stress without the headache of a Do-It-Yourself project, and now is not the time to think you can binge watch YouTube videos on how to box a lamp and have it down pat. Your kids are probably worried about changing schools and making friends, your significant other is distressed about a new dry cleaner and driving routine, and the last thing you need to do is multiply the stress by trying a DIY move in Denver.

Why Local?

Why not? A local company in Denver has its benefits. First, they know the ins and outs of the area and will not be counting on their phones to navigate to your new residence. Also, they should know what size of truck will best accomodate 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 good job for you--word of mouth travels fast, and if you're not pleased with the move, then they have to live with the bad reviews. When you hire locally, you are also keeping the local economy going-- a win/win for everybody in Denver

Questions They'll Have

When you contact the movers, they'll have several questions, so keep this basic information ready. Most of it you know without really having to research, but there may be one or two questions that you really have to think about. It is probably a smart idea to take an inventory of your furniture, room by room, because moving is staggering enough that you don't want to forget all the stuff in the basement.

How many bedrooms? Do you have a garage, basement, attic, or all three? Does your barn have a loft? Do you have a piano, 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 high value things, the movers will most likely require additional information about these items.

Once 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 estimate is much more detailed and measures the cost with much more precision than the initial ballpark estimate. It covers the specific services that you want. During the survey is a great time to ask all of the burning questions that you might have.
