How To Choose the Best Moving Company

Central Florida New Home Exterior

Once your beautiful Green Key Village home is built and ready for you, all that stands between you and your luxurious, vacation-style life is move-in day! Of course, you may not be looking forward to the task of getting all of your belongings settled in, but finding the right moving company can make an entire world of difference.

Whether you’re moving into your Green Key Village home from in-state or from across the country, the right mover will help to make this transition as seamless as possible (just like life in your new home will be)! Take a look at our best tips and tricks to selecting the most effective moving company in Florida and out-of-state:

If you’re moving from Florida…

Tip #1: Make sure that the mover you’re looking at takes proper and thorough inventory of all of your belongings to “determine the bulk and weight of your move.” This way, you’ll get a better idea of what your total price will be like beforehand. (Best of all, for a limited time, Green Key Village will pay up to $5,000 of your moving costs* to make everything a bit easier for you.)

Tip #2: Since you’re moving in-state, one of your friends or family members is sure to know someone who has moved recently (if you don’t personally know someone yourself). Word-of-mouth recommendations are reliable indicators of the quality of a moving company, and can help you significantly narrow down your search.

Tip #3: Ask a lot of questions! If you want to meet with a moving company ahead of time, make sure to go through all of your concerns, particularly whether they’ll charge additional fees for things like “speciality packing, or disassembling and assembling furniture.” Being as prepared as possible makes everything easier.

If you’re moving from across the country…

Tip #1: When it comes to finding the best cross-country mover, customer reviews are your best friend. Make sure to go through each mover’s website as carefully as possible to understand exactly how they operate, as well as confirm “their insurance policy, inspection and tracking systems, as well as price differences.

Tip #2: It never hurts to get an early start on your cross-country move. If you compare different moving quotes ahead of time, you can take advantage of deals and discounts, and avoid “outrageous fees and less options” when the time arrives. Weighing out your options keeps your finances (and your peace of mind!) in check, and just makes our offer of up to $5,000 toward moving costs* that much sweeter.

Tip #3: Another option you have besides hiring a full-service moving company is to rent your own truck and seek out the help of a labor-only alternative, which is a service that helps you load and unload your belongings. If this option sounds right for you, check out this list of trustworthy companies that can accommodate you.

Once you’ve found the most efficient mover, you’re a giant step closer to your laidback and leisurely lifestyle here. All of us at Green Key Village can’t wait to help you get settled in and welcome you home!
