3How many movers should I hire?
There are no rules when it comes to the number of movers you should hire. You might be moving out of a tight living space with a lot of furniture and heavy items, which will ultimately require a little more manpower than moving just a couple of items. In contrast, you could be living in a large home with a few pieces of furniture that need to be moved, which means that you won’t probably be in the need of a large moving crew. Your relocation specialist will also advise you about the appropriate number of movers that are needed to complete your move, as they have the experience and knowledge and know the most efficient ways to help you relocate.
4How to pack for movers?
The only thing you need to do before your movers arrive, is to pack your belongings and be ready for the relocation process once they get there. This means that all of your belongings should be in boxes, fully closed and ready for transport. It would help your movers and speed up your relocation if you label your boxes beforehand, with the contents inside and the rooms they go to. However, the entire process of packing and how you should tackle it is completely up to you.
5Why tip movers?
As previously mentioned, tipping your movers is not mandatory when moving with our company, however, you can always tip your movers if and how much you wish to. If our movers have done a great job with your relocation, you are free to tip them.
6Will movers move plants?
We at San Diego Best Moving always advise our customers to relocate their plants on their own, for the sole reason that our insurance does not cover plants and there is no efficient way of protecting them during transport. There is a risk of your plants getting damaged during the process, and since we tend to avoid these situations, it may be best to take your plants with you.
7When to hire movers?
You should give your movers a call at least two weeks in advance, and that is if you’re planning a short notice move. Ideally, giving your movers a call as much in advance as possible is the best option, since there is no guarantee that they will have an available spot for your relocation to take place if your give them a call just a couple of days before. The sooner you give them a call, the bigger the chances are that you will be able to reserve them on the day that you have carefully picked for your move.
8When do movers get paid?
You will pay for the service you have received from your movers the moment your move is finished and the total bill is calculated according to the time it took for your movers to complete the relocation process. This is when you will pay for your move, and you can also choose to tip your movers for a job well done, although this is by no means mandatory, or included in the bill when moving with San Diego Best Moving Company.
9When do movers start charging?
The way a certain company charges their clients is completely individual. However, at San Diego Best Moving, we start charging our clients once our movers have arrived and started with the relocation process. We don’t charge you anything to get to your starting location, or to go back, and there are no additional fees for gas or mileage when moving with us.
10Will movers pack for you?
Most moving companies do offer packing assistance in addition to their standard service. We at San Diego Best Moving do offer a few packing options from you to choose from. You can opt for a partial packing service and a full pack service in addition to our relocation services, or you can choose the option of us only helping you pack your belongings, while you handle the rest of your relocation on your own. The choice is completely up to you.
