What to look for in professional movers

Your home is the most important thing that you have, and the items in it are just as precious. Usually everything you own is within its walls, which is why you need to trust your move to professionals. You don’t want to load it all up, stuff it in the back of some random person’s truck, and move it all the way across town, and even worse, across country! Before you get on the phone or the internet to find a company to help you, make sure you know what to look for in professional movers. Knowing the difference can pay off big time in the end.

Local experience

Getting a big truck full of furniture and equipment through the tight streets of a big city sure isn’t easy, especially when the town can be confusing, and full of dead ends and one way streets. Moving a rig through the streets of Montreal is even more difficult. You need a company that knows the area like the back of their hand. This will help everyone plan the move better, and for things to go more smoothly.

They pay attention to the safety of your belongings

There are a lot of companies out there that wrap a pad around your stuff, and throw it on to the back of the truck before driving off. Not us. You need a company that pays attention to every detail. That means wrapping your belongings in pads properly, using furniture wrap to protect your couches and chairs, using pads to protect your walls while moving, and putting down protective layering on the ground to protect your floors. A company worth the money will want to make sure everything about your home and belongings is safe and sound.

Straightforward pricing and estimates

We can’t tell you how many companies out there will give you a lowball estimate just to get you to agree, and then throw hidden costs at you when all is said and done. This is bad business, and we don’t do it. While the estimate is almost never exact, it should be a ballpark figure to help both sides reach an agreement. We don’t have hidden costs, and everything is done straightforwardly. Honest business is good business.
