Moving to a new home, whether it’s a house, a rental home or an apartment, is not an inexpensive ordeal. There are ways to reduce those expenses by finding and using cheap moving services. When looking to save some money on your move, make sure that cheap moving services are also licensed and insured. Otherwise, a cheap moving service could end up costing you a lot more. Here are a few tips to help you find reliable and cheap moving services.

Get quotes

Call as many local moving companies as you can find and ask for a moving quote. You can also get quotes online through the moving companies’ web sites. There are even sites that allow you to fill out a single form that is then sent to moving companies, who will offer competing quotes. Make sure you provide as much information as possible to the moving companies, whether over the phone or on line, to make sure you get an accurate moving quote.

Know what you want

Sometimes the absolute lowest dollar expenditure is right for a particular move. Other times it is not what you are looking for in cheap moving services. Sometimes a moving service that provides a better value is better than one that simply costs less. For example, some moving companies offer a service in which they will actually pack all your belongings for you and move them. This obviously will cost more than just moving everything after you have packed it yourself, but for some people, leaving the tedium of packing to others is worth the additional expense.

Make sure your movers are fully licensed

All moving companies are supposed to be fully licensed with their home state and insured, but some of them are able to skirt the rules. They have been known to give a low price quote, only to demand more money once they have your possessions on their truck. If the movers are uninsured you will have no recourse if they damage any of your property. Again, cheap moving services are not necessarily the best services.

Shopping around is the best way to get the cheap moving services to make your move as easy and cost-effective as possible. Just make sure you are getting what you want and getting what you pay for.
