How exciting that you’re planning a move to Aurora! This city is often thought of as a Denver suburb, but it’s got a population in its own right of almost half a million. It’s part of an urban metropolis exceeding two million-and still growing. My family settled right in, and I know you’ll do the same.
Once you’ve settled on a moving date, you can begin your search for Aurora movers. You can make your move easier by preparing carefully and researching all your options. I saved 35% on my Aurora moving expenses by obtaining multiple relocation estimates and following a few tips. Some of them were from Aurora movers that were recommended to me by my spouse’s employer or a neighbor, and some of them were from Aurora movers that I discovered on the internet.
Aurora Movers Saving Tips:
Research Each Potential Company:
Aurora movers that advertise on the internet are able to provide remarkable moving rates, probably because the sheer volume of business that they do puts them in a more market-friendly position. No matter which of the Aurora movers that appeal to you, it’s important to check out each and every one of them.
You can do so through the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s website, by entering their docket number or USDOT number into a search bar that will identify their past safety record. You should also check them out with the Better Business Bureau.
Request A Home Review:
As you interview Aurora movers, scratch off the ones who say they don’t need to come to your home to give you a moving company quote. The movers should be ready and willing to view your possessions; otherwise, they can’t really give you a valid moving quote.
Ask your Aurora moving company if it will charge you per pound or per cubic foot. I chose to pay per pound because my family and I were packing our belongings ourselves. However, if you are hiring expert packers to do the job, they will pack much more compactly than you could ever hope to do yourself, and it might benefit you to get a quote per cubic foot.
Binding vs. Unbinding Quotes:
It’s also important to know if your estimate is binding or nonbinding. Aurora movers who quote you a binding estimate cannot charge you more money unless you require more moving services of them than those spelled out in your contract. Examples could be asking them to disconnect appliances, moving furniture that you previously excluded from the quote because you thought you wouldn’t take it, or not telling the movers about excessive stairs in the new home. But if they quote you a nonbinding estimate, they can ask you to pay up to 10% more than you were originally quoted.
Ample Insurance Coverage:
Be certain, too, as you prepare for your Aurora relocation, to photograph or video your valuable goods so that you can prove their condition in case of loss or damage. Ask various movers what their policy is on handling damages. And be aware that all movers, including Aurora movers, generally do not provide adequate moving insurance. Find out what their insurance will pay in the event of loss; I actually bought a rider from my homeowner’s insurance company.
Before you know it, you’ll be happily unpacking, registering the kids at their new schools, and taking your dog or cat to get a new license. Don’t forget to take care of yourself, too! You won’t have much rest on the day of your arrival, but you should schedule some relaxation time for yourself and for the whole family on the very next day to alleviate the stresses associated with moving day.
