Why choosing the best Boca Raton movers matters

But what if you don’t really find the best long distance movers Boca Raton? Will it make such a difference? We would argue that it will. First and foremost, “being the best” does not simply mean that they provide top-notch service. This also must include affordability, clear communication, etc. (more on this later)

How to choose the best local movers?

Best movers are the ones with all the attributes right there. And when you find such well rounded, experienced moving companies, you will know that you have chosen right. Because, if you operate with a company that is not the best the moving industry can offer, you can never feel at peace when leaving them to handle your possessions and old/new home. But when you know that they are the best, that they are careful, punctual, have the capacity and that they are responsible and accountable – you can rest assured everything will be just fine.

What are the characteristics of the very best movers

So, in choosing your local best movers, what are the characteristics you should look for? What are the most important attributes for good movers to have? Here are three we find the most important right of the bat.

  • Special services a mover will provide. These are things such as appliance installation, piano movers FL, furniture disassembly, TV installation, etc. This is considered to be additional services which often incur their own additional costs. However, they are usually very much needed or simply highly convenient. For this reason, choosing the best Boca Raton movers means choosing the mover who can meet your demands.
  • Good reviews are essential. Looking into a well-reviewed company means looking into a moving company that has a proven track record for its activity. Since most of the time you can’t really find out what is the behaviors of the companies staff and crew in the process of moving any other way, we strongly encourage you too look on the sites like Google, Facebook and Yelp in order to gather knowledge on the behavior of your chosen movers.
  • Good communication is also key. You want a company that can keep in touch and who’s staff is engaged in the process of decision making and troubleshooting before the actual move. This maxim also extends to the website presentation. If the website is confusing and unintuitive, lacking user-friendly elements, that should be a red flag for the simple fact that it proves the lack of interest for their own perception to the user.

There are also three more elements that are crucial for a good mover.

Moving quotes and estimates

What are the moving quotes? Well, when you have your local movers Boca Raton make a moving quote for you you essentially ask for a rough, nonbinding estimate of the total cost of the move. Thee are essential for when you are trying to weigh in your options. What you should do is ask for as many quotes as possible. They are free after all, at least most of the time. What you should be doing is comparing their prices and find out which company is the most affordable one.


Be sure to get good estimates

Of course, just having a nonbinding estimate is not enough to proceed to the next phase of the move, is it? In most cases, no, you should take further steps. Accordingly, these would be asking for a binding estimate. That one is a little bit more complicated, involving the agent of the company coming to your home to check everything. The parameters most often looked at are weight and estimated time traveled. With local moves, the accent is put on the time, while on interstate reallocations it is the weight that is the king. 

Finally, you should be aware of the 110% rule. This rule prohibits movers from having the final price of over 110% of the nonbinding agreement. This is a legal obligation, not some tradition, and if your mover does not follow it he is open for being sued (as he should be). Therefore, be aware that you can have an upper budget limitation even when a nonbinding estimate is in place.

Proper agreements

If you are in need of an important office movers Boca Raton, you need to be sure that you are working with true professionals. And the only way to do that is to have a valid, legal agreement. The best way to determine if the company is not good for business is if they are shady on the deal details.

A good deal is the only acceptable deal

There is even a worse option, a blank dealThis is often offered under the spirit of “friendship”. Do not sign such peace of paper. The Blank agreement with your signature on it can be turned into literary anything the other side wants. Never risk those odds.


Finally, affordability is the key. A great service nobody can afford is not a great service in the first place. Be sure to be realistic with your budget and intelligently pick what parts of the move you can do yourself, rather than using the “full package”.

What choosing the best Boca Raton movers all comes down to…

What it all comes down to is choosing carefully and intelligently. Don’t be in a rush and review all the relevant information when you are hoosing the best Boca Raton movers. Take variables we listed into account and you should be set!
