Local moves are considered moves that are in the city of Denver or in the surrounding area. Local moves do not cross state lines, and they often are limited to a specific range outside of the city. This range or mileage limit may vary by moving company, so it is essential to ask about the limitations on any local moves by any service.
Hiring local movers is, in many ways, easier than hiring long distance moving companies. Your possessions will be loaded on the moving truck and delivered by the same driver and moving crew, typically on the same day. The size of the home, the need for any special moving requirements and other factors may impact the ability to do a same day move for all households.
To get the best local movers, there are some strategies that Denver residents need to consider when talking to moving companies and booking the move. It is essential to pay attention to details and to ask questions to have a seamless moving experience.
Ask About Licenses and Insurance
Not all of the small, local types of movers are professional movers. Some are people that work weeks and use rented trucks and equipment, which poses a problem for customers in claims for damage or in being able to contact the company.
In choosing a well-known, highly rated local mover, this type of issue can be avoided. Always verify the moving company coming to your home has insurance and the necessary licenses to protect your property.
A lot of the local movers offer only the basic services of loading and unloading the trucks. They do not offer packing services, and they may not have experience in wrapping and padding of larger furniture items.
Always check to verify the mover offers the services you want. Be sure to get everything in writing on the contract, and clearly understand the type of estimate the mover is providing.
