Top 5 Mistakes that People Make When Choosing a Local Mover in Houston


Moving to a different location with all your stuff is a daunting task. Here is a list of top five mistakes that people often make while choosing a local mover and packer in Houston area

Unscheduled Moving: When your schedule to move in advance is not planned things become nasty. Don’t insist on waiting for someone that can offer you better rate in order to save few bucks. Unscheduled moving leaves you with the option to hire an inexperienced mover. Without adequate manpower, experience and correct transportation how you can expect one to perform ones job in an orderly manner. It is always advisable to have a planned moving schedule i.e. contacting a moving company in advance.

Cheapest vs. Expensive: When it comes to selection between cheapest and expensive one, most of us would tend to opt for cheapest. But is it advisable? Well, it’s not true at all. Make a through market research in order to find some reliable name that can offer you state of art moving services at an effective quote. Lowest price tag may not guarantee best service. By making some timely efforts you won’t need to make any compromise with the service quality.

Ending up packing too much stuff: Stay away from the clutter of unusable belongings that you no longer need now. How about making a fresh start when you arrive to a new location? It will not only make your new dwelling more organized but also will provide a fresh feel.

Not Being Aware of T&C: Most of the people often take things for granted and eventually end up things verbally. Always insist on getting a written estimate from your mover otherwise you might let a door open to new problems. Getting everything in written bounds both parties to stay within the terms of legal contract. Make sure that you have fully read and understood all the terms & conditions of the contract. This will help you down in separating those items that are not a part of inventory and will invite additional charges. Once you get your stuff in order at new location you’ll be bound to pay the mover via cash or through other permissible means.

Undermining the Cost Factor: Every service comes with a price tag and might include some hidden charges as well. Most of the movers charge an advance security deposit when you are moving to an adjacent town or across the state. If some additional coverage is offered by the mover for a certain fee, it is advisable to go for it otherwise you may to replace your expensive items damaged in transit. Be sure of aforementioned factors while making a final selection.

I moved this past Monday and was quite pleased with the two gentlemen that moved me. They were efficient and very friendly. If I were to ever have to move again, I certainly would be giving AB Movers a call. Thanks for a good easy no hassle move. 👍

I had an awesome experience. I was able to get most things done via email. The sales rep reached out and asked our move. I was given a fair estimate, reasonable expectations, and a complete move. I read reviews about this company - I can say from my experience - some people are just picky and not fun to work with. This is a good quality team. The team was comprised of a forman and two additional laborers. Make no mistake - these were not laborers... these were work horses, honest dependable people. I stayed present for 10% of my move. I found things packed, boxes labeled, and a friendly person asking what floor to put my 300 pound washing machine on.In one word: Impressed.Thank you!

These guys were the absolute best! I used them on 3/2/19. They moved me from my third floor apartment to another third floor apartment in the next town over (10 miles away) in under four hours. It even started to rain and they still moved quickly. I was amazed at how quickly they got my apartment emptied. They even arranged and rearranged my living room furniture for me. I was sick with the flu and they got my job done quick, bed set up so I could lay down. I wish I had the extra cash to tip them, as they were hustling for real. I would definitely recommend them to anyone needing moving services.
