Helpful Advice from a Chicago Real Estate Lawyer

There comes a time in most people's life where they need to move out of an old home into a new residence. Sometimes, the job is simply too big to handle yourself or with the help of family and friends. When the time comes to hire a mover, it is important to choose wisely. The right mover can make a huge difference in your moving experience, while the wrong mover can add unnecessary stress and problems.

Beware of moving companies that charge you a much lower price than their competitors. The right moving company will send a representative to your residence to inspect the weight and nature of the goods being moved before they quote you a price estimate. If a moving company tries to quote you a price over the phone or through the Internet, the estimate may be wrong and you may end up paying more in the end. It is never a bad idea to call several different moving companies to get a feel for what your general price estimate will be, and to learn more about the different services offered.

One of the best ways to find a trustworthy mover is to ask you trusted friends, family or a Chicago real estate attorney for references. You can also ask most professional movers for numbers of former employers who can give you a reliable assessment of the mover's abilities and experience. There are moving companies today who are operated by criminals looking to swindle your money or sell off your possessions. You should never pay big cash deposits prior to the move, and a mover should be able to provide you with their insurance information and direct access contacts.
