Choosing the Right Mover for Your Move

The last few weeks, we have been discussing the process of moving, and how it can be a stressful and difficult time. With using a professional mover, often times that stress can be alleviated. It all depends on the mover that you choose. Hiring the right mover can make all the difference in the process. Lisa James from Mesa Movers and Storage, one of our Community Partners, sat down to discuss how to choose the right mover and what sets apart Mesa Movers and Storage.

Choosing the Right Mover

It’s important to be able to trust the people that are coming into your home and moving your personal belongings. When choosing a mover, you need to be able to meet with the people who are going to be taking care of you. Are they willing to spend time on the phone or in person with you, going through every detail of your move? Do they understand your specific situation? Are the worker’s background checked and drug tested? These are all questions you should be asking when choosing a mover because it truly is such a personal experience.
