Local Moving Services in Colorado Springs--Worth the Money - Part 1

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

Ask anyone who's moved recently--it may be (and usually is) really, really difficult. Relocating is plenty of a crazy time without the anxiety 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 have it down pat. Your kids are probably worried about changing schools and making friends, your significant other is distressed about a new grocery store and driving routine, and the last thing you need to do is multiply the stress by attempting a DIY move in Colorado Springs.

Why Local?

Why not? A local company in Colorado Springs has its advantages. First, they know the area and will not be depending on their phones to get you to your new home. In addition, they should know what size of moving vehicle will best work for which parts 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 on the line in doing a good job for you--word of mouth moves fast, and if you are 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 Colorado Springs

Questions They'll Have

When you call the movers, they'll have a list of questions, so have this basic information ready. Most of it you know without really having to dig, but there will be one or two questions that you might have to think about. It's probably a good idea to jot down an inventory of your things, 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 barn, basement, attic, or all three? Does your garage have a loft? Do you have a grandfather clock, or anything really, really large like a standing safe? Any play equipment like swing sets 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 certain expensive things, the movers will most likely require additional information about these items.

Once you answered some initial questions, you will most likely be given a ballpark estimate and an option for a free in-home survey for your local move in Colorado Springs. An in-home survey is much more specific and measures the cost with much more precision than the initial ballpark estimate. It covers the exact services that you need. During the survey is a great time to ask the burning questions that you have come to your mind.
