Finding a Professional Home Movers company around Cochrane can be a daunting process but one that isn’t impossible to achieve as long as you know what you want and how to look for it. With a little patience, you can find yourself saving tons of money and time and also being able to avoid the common problems that every homeowner who’s in the planning stages of moving; whether that is locally, provincially or cross-province.
To save you the trouble of trying to determine if hiring a truck yourself and getting friends or family to help, versus hiring a Cochrane serving moving company; we put together a useful blog post here.
The first thing you need to do is go online and search for reputable moving companies in your area. Initially, you may have to ask for recommendations or referrals from friends about what moving companies they used or what they would recommend that you don’t use. Word of mouth is also a great way to figure out the best, but if you don’t know anyone you can ask, you can always do your background check by checking out the Better Business website or any other organization that keeps tabs on legitimate businesses.
Sparta Movers is accredited with the Better Business Bureau of Calgary. You can find our listing here.
Also, look to online reviews to get some indication as to the quality of services a moving company provides. Click here to see some of our star ratings for Calgary Movers Reviews.
Also, you need to remember to shortlist at least three to four companies so that you will be able to compare services and estimates and determine which one will give you the best deal.
It will also be in your best interest to be able to identify the signs that a moving company is not worth even considering. If the moving company’s website has no local address or contact number, chances are these are what is termed in the industry as “rogue movers” and we recommend you don’t contact them.
You also need to watch out for those companies that claim to have all items covered by their insurance,.
Sparta’s Full Value Cargo Protection is one of the best protections there is on the market. It is almost simply unheard of when a local residential moving company offers such coverage!!! When other moving companies offer BASIC cargo protection coverage (limited to 60 cents per lb weight of damaged item) which is the minimum mandatory coverage outlined in Federal Regulations. Take, for example, your typical 50” flat screen TV valued at 500 CAD and weighing around 30 lb. When “other moving companies” will cover up to 18 CAD, Sparta will compensate the full market value of the TV – 500 CAD. Rest assured that your belongings are full covered, when you hire Sparta Movers.
