While moving can be exciting, it can also be stressful. Even if you are physically able to move yourself, squeezing large furniture through narrow doorways and driving an unfamiliar truck can be a hassle. Our partners at ConsumerAffairs researched the best movers in Green Bay to help make your move as seamless as possible.
Projections indicate Green Bay will see a strong increase in new residents in the coming decades. Combine that with the influx of Baby Boomers moving to senior living facilities and the recent growth in Hobart, and it’s clear that many people in northeastern Wisconsin will need relocation services. If you find yourself preparing to move, it’s important to choose movers you can trust.
Some moving companies personally employ and manage all their movers, while other companies serve as brokers that connect you with movers that are appropriately licensed and insured. Regardless of which type of company you work with, they’ll help you schedule your move and can answer any questions you have about the process.
Many aspects of hiring a moving company boil down to your preferences when it comes to how involved you want the movers to be and what your specific needs are. Some companies can help you pack and unpack or supply you with boxes and additional moving supplies.
When getting quotes from moving companies, don’t forget to ask the following questions, if they apply to you:
Do they charge for moving items up or down flights of stairs?
What is their claims process if any of your items are damaged?
What packing do you need to have done in advance, and what will they do when they arrive?
Will they move large, heavy or specialty items?
Do they offer short- or long-term storage?
Most companies will offer a free quote for your move. The distance of the move is a large factor in the price. Local moves are typically charged at an hourly rate while long-distance and interstate moves are charged based on the total weight of items moved.
To get the most accurate quote, take an inventory of how many items need to be moved. Alert the moving company of any extra large or unusual items that may require special handling. Don’t forget to include items in your garage, attic or any other space you may not use daily.
