Get a Relocation Estimate

How will you get a relocation estimate?

This is one most common question that most people tend to ask while choosing a mover or a moving company. The answer to this question is quite easy. Use your common sense. You are a consumer and you have every right to ask for the quotes and estimates before you select a moving company. It is advisable to get the relocation estimates from a number of moving companies, rather than from just a single moving company. Just make sure, in advance, to check out if there are any surcharges or fees. Some companies will quote you lowest prices but there will be extra charges hidden and you will end up with incurring more expenses.

Estimates or quotes can be available over the phone after providing proper information. If you don't want to get the estimates for your move over the phone, you can ask the company's representative to visit your place. An estimator will physically visit the office or your home and will check out your things to be moved. He/she will prepare an itemized list of the entire household and on the basis of this the final moving estimate can be produced.

Another possible option is to just check the estimates directly from the company's office. You can find a tons of moving companies in the Internet. Just make a list of all the movers that are existing in your locality and visit their office. You can talk to them directly and get the estimate quotes for your move.

Prepare Your Home Plants For The Move

How to prepare your home plants for the move? This is one most important question that many gardener tend to worry about when it come to move! Here are some tips on how to prepare your plants for the relocation. If you're moving locally, sometimes your plants are not allowed to move along with you. I remember my move from California to Toronto years back; I got stuck to a real bitter problem. My long loved potted peach bonsai had been disallowed into Canada. I was really heartbroken and had to give off my most loved peach bonsai to the customs there! My days were blue for some times without my bonsai. I hope she is living well in some garden.

Prior to take your plant to your new destination, try to know if there is any legal restrictions. Get all necessary information about which species are allowed. It is a real terrible feeling to leave of your greens to the custom officers, without knowing if he has a green thumb at all!

Believe me... I talked to many movers. I know that most of the movers do not cover the damage to your plants, since they are too delicate to sustain the jolts of the move. Check before your sign the contract if your mover will cover damages to your plants. If they do so, ask them if there are any rules or any additional expenses to be incurred.

If you are an experienced gardener, you can pick the do-it-yourself option! You will better know the nature of each kind of plant and you can arrange them accordingly. Plan your packing scheme! Get some sturdy boxes for your plants to be packed. Don't forget to stuff bubble wraps and foam cushions between pots, so they won't break! Remember you need to pack the tall plants in plastics; create some holes so you plant can breath.

All plants cannot suite to all kind of climates. Before you plan move your plants, spare a second thought on it. Check if you have any varieties that will not be able to adopt the new climate. If you have such plants, better to leave them with a responsible gardener pall who you know for long.

Moving with your plants requires huge lot of thoughts and decisions to be taken. It is advisable not to make mess in haste.

Finding Good Movers

My previous post was all about a bitter experience that I had while moving from Minnesota to Ohio. Relax... your worst nightmares would soon be futile fantasies if you make the right kind of decision. Right decision in this regard is choosing the right mover. A good mover should be a complete package of every essential thing that might be required to benefit a customer. Starting from having a set of well trained professionals, who would pack your stuff with immense care to having a good storage facility, a good moving company should have every single reasons to be chosen. Once they walk into your home, you can leave all your worries behind and sit back at your couch to play game online! Most of the good movers, I have seen, in the industry also have departments of freight forwarding and pet moving.

Finding a budget moving company in your locality is a real easier task - even more easy than you might think it to be. If you are looking for a budget mover with proven track record, I am sure you will soon get one, as I know well that there are budget mover companies in about every area of the United States, who can move you and your belongings and pet fro one corner of the country to other safely and with a decently low rate.

Once you got a list of movers you might want to ask them about the dispute resolution procedures they follow. Ask them without fail what recourse you have if your items are damaged or lost in transit and who to contact if there are problems on or after the moving day. Don't forget to ask them as to how will you be able to track the progress of your relocation process... especially if it's a long distance move. Don't forget to keep your pals' suggestions in your mind, while on move!
