After a closing is said and done, most buyers are eager to move into their new Colorado Springs home. What some are guilty of is becoming overly excited and failing to properly plan for their move. By taking some time to think your move through, you can ensure a smooth and efficient process so your family can begin to settle in as soon as possible.
“Getting multiple moving estimates from Colorado Springs moving companies is recommended before choosing which one you will go with,” says Joe Clement, Broker/Owner of RE/MAX Properties, Inc.. Furthermore, get recommendations from your friends, family or trusted Colorado Springs real estate agent. Have the company come to your home and see the task at hand so that your estimates can be more accurate. “Many new buyers make the mistake of randomly choosing a moving service because they’re anxious to get moved into their new home. Take some time to make your decision,” says Clement.
The moving business can be quite complex, so don’t be afraid to ask your Colorado Springs moving company any questions you may have regarding the process. Read all of the documents provided to you, but ask for clarification if something doesn’t make sense. If the carrier hesitates to calm your concerns, consider another carrier.
When you move may also make a difference in service. “June to September is a busy season for movers and moving companies,” says Clement. If you must move between those months, aim for mid-week and/or mid-month–the end of the month can get hectic and service may falter.
Be reachable by phone in order to facilitate communication. Your mover may have specific questions to ask you at any given time. To make sure the process runs smoothly and as quick as possible, make sure they know how to reach you. In addition, ask the company for your driver’s name, ID and truck number. You want to know how to contact someone who is responsible for all of your personal belongings.
By properly screening a moving company and planning your move with them, you can be sure that your family and belongings are relocated with ease.
