In addition to providing a list of my favorite San Jose moving companies, I also want to share some important information that you should know as a consumer. It’s crucial that you educate yourself on the moving industry and what you need to know as a resident of San Jose and the Bay area.
What You Need To Know
Moving comes with a lot of (unnecessary) stress. From transporting large, heavy furniture to packing up all of your belongings, and moving around San Jose with them can seem like an insurmountable task. However, there are a few things to keep in mind that will help guide you through the process without getting overwhelmed. The first step is to get organized. But how can you do that?
When it comes to where are you moving to and from, you need to think if your move is long distance or you just need a local mover. If you are thinking in moving to/from San Jose to Silicon Valley, San Francisco or anywhere in the Bay area, a local mover will do just fine.
If on the other hand, you you are planning to move to the other side of the state, like Orange county, Los Angeles, San Diego, or anywhere else in California (or another state) you will need long distance movers.
Now, once you select a company to help with your move, things will go smooth.
During moving, it’s truly awesome to see a professional being in control of the small details. These are the things you want to see from those you’re hiring. If you’re hiring contractors, consider them assets. Hire very careful individuals. And ask an absolute minuscule amount of questions at the point of hiring, the very beginning. The more you know during pre-movement questions, the better.
Another suggestion is to know and trust the terms. Making a move for someone is a big deal. While it’s okay to take on a large amount of risk, you’ve gotta make sure you’ve covered the entire pie. Then if things go well, the San Jose movers can be off on the next deal.
Things You Should Consider
When I talk about “San Jose movers,” I’m referring to movers and van services. For those who are unfamiliar with moving, you might be thinking that this means you need to hire a moving company, which I totally understand. Some of you may also be thinking that moving companies are evil and always charging fees. Well, it’s not that simple.
If you do find yourself hiring a moving company, be sure to do your research. Some of these moving companies in San Jose might have great reviews and have good reviews in Google and Yelp, among others. You want to make sure that the company you are hiring is legit and has been around for a long time. Ace moving has been in business since 1984, for your reference.
How to prepare for a move
Moving can be stressful. The last thing you want is to worry about how to organize your important documents and move them safely. With a few minutes of preparation, you can keep your documents safe and organized – and enjoy the moving process!
Know what you have – If you have a computer, table or phone, start by creating a list of items. Make separate tabs for each room so you can quickly access what you need.
Tips for a smooth move
As we said, moving is the worst. But, by keeping organized with a checklist, timeline, and paperwork file, you can mitigate some of the worst parts. A moving checklist will help you prepare for your move by breaking down all of the tasks you’ll need to complete. A timeline can give you an at-a-glance overview on when specific things need to be done. You can find a free checklist in our homepage.
While the majority of people like moving companies and want to have the most pleasant experience possible, it’s also important that you know your rights as a consumer. Some people assume that they are stuck with their moving company unless they don’t like the way it treats them. It is important to remember that if your moving company is operating illegally or is causing you a problem, you can always file a complaint with your local city and/or county governments. At that point, a commissioner may investigate your case and issue citations if necessary. In this case, you have a right to ask for a refund or to cancel your contract and leave the company before they will be held liable.
