Tips for an easy and stress-free move

With a lot of experience comes a great understanding of what kinds of moves are the best moves. For the award-winning moving company, Simple Moves, quality always comes over quantity. There are some tips which can make your move easy and stress-free.

Tip number 1: Always clarify rates.

In Simple Moves, the price includes the movers, a truck, furniture wrapping materials, wardrobe boxes, home protection materials, travel time, gas and insurance. You do not have to worry about any additional costs since we will communicate everything clearly before the move. Sometimes, choosing the cheapest moving company just because of the price might not be the best idea. The price might seem low at first but don‘t be surprised if some additional costs would add up later. That is why it is essential to get as much information as you can.

Tip number 2: Stay in contact.

The employees of Simple Moves are always checking in with the customer. Firstly, we call a couple of days before the move to double check if the information about the date, the address and the time is precisely correct. That way you do not have to worry about the movers showing up too late, arriving at a wrong address or not showing up at all. Secondly, we ask if the client has any inquiries, maybe just a few days before the move you notice that you will need some help packing. No worries! We are always ready to help. We will get the supplies you need and pack your items for you. Lastly, you can also expect a call a few days after the move because we always want to be sure that your experience is going to be, is and has been pleasurable for you.

Tip number 3: Always ask questions.

Some great questions to ask are:

1. Can you provide me with some proof of excellent service?

If you are unsure if you can trust the company, you can always search for reviews on the Internet. Take time to research the moving company. Ask around and get the option which is the best for you. If the company seems untrustworthy and most of the reviews are negative it is a perfect indicator that something might go wrong during your move. In Simple Moves, we are confident in the service we provide, and every review we get is appreciated and noticed. That is one of the many reasons why we are one of the top-rated moving companies in Vancouver.

2. What kind of insurance does your company have?

Always make sure that you are insured. Simple Moves promise premium protection for your home and possessions for each move.

3. What types of estimates do you provide?

With Simple Moves, you could either get a quote while speaking with a consultant on the phone or book an in-person consultation. What‘s the difference? We typically book meetings for apartments and houses with three bedrooms or more, office moves, etc. Likewise, we will always make sure that the quote we give you is transparent and right.

4. How will you protect my home?

Not only the items which go on the truck should be taken care of during the move. Covering the floor and the railings are crucial. Simple Moves will go the extra mile to protect your old and new home and make your move as smooth as it can be.

5. How will my belongings be protected during moving?

We at Simple Moves believe that keeping every fragile and easy to damage item padded or safely packed into a box is as important as delivering it from the pickup to delivery address is.

No matter how specific your move is, Simple Moves will always try to find the best solution for you. Are you planning to renovate? Simple Moves can suggest a storage option and help you move. For example, the movers can come over, load the items into the storage locker and when you finish the renovation – bring your belongings back. Are you planning to move from Vancouver to a different town in Canada? Our move consultant can visit you at your home during the time which is convenient for you and provide you with a fixed price. If you are not sure how to do it, Simple Moves will gladly try to find the best way for you.
