Have you heard? Boise has the fastest appreciating real estate in the country right now, and the cost of living sits below the national average. Prices are still relatively low compared to large coastal cities, and if they continue to increase, you could see a large return on your real estate investment. Plus, Boise’s just a nice place to live! If you’re thinking about making the jump, you might need help moving all of your stuff. We have a few suggestions to help you find the best moving solution for you.
Do Your Research
As with any major life decision, it’s best to gather as much information as possible before you take the plunge. That includes getting information on movers, especially if you’re changing cities. Packing your life into a truck, driving to the new city, and unpacking it can be difficult. You’ll want to be sure the people handling your things are trustworthy. Do as much digging as you can and look at customer reviews to make sure you feel comfortable with your movers.
Planning is key in any relocation or move. Different moving companies offer varying levels of service, from full-service help to partial service movers. You might consider renting a storage container or a moving truck on your own. It all depends on what you need and what you can afford.
To get an idea on the level of service you’ll need, it’s a good idea to take stock of all of your things. That way you can estimate how much space in a truck or container you’ll need, as well as how much help you’d need to pack it all up and move it. Communicate this information with your selected moving company well in advance to make sure they’re available for you. The last thing you want is not having enough space or help when moving day arrives.
Look at Multiple Options
As with many services, it can help to shop around before you settle on a mover. If you only talk to one moving company, you may never know if there’s a different one out there that can better meet your needs. A simple internet search can make finding information on multiple service providers a breeze. Once you’ve narrowed down your options, call the companies you’re interested in to get multiple bids. Even if you like one mover more, a second bid might even help you negotiate on price. At the end of it all, you can rest easier knowing that you considered more than one option and picked the one you thought best.
