When you’re hiring movers, it’s important to ask the right questions so that you know what you’re getting into before you sign on the dotted line.

An article from outlined the crucial questions you should ask before hiring movers to manage your next move, including:

  • Is there anything you won’t move? Some moving companies have policies around items they won’t move (for example, plants or high-ticket items that would cost too much to replace if damaged). Before you hire movers, it’s important to get clear on those policies—and make sure that they’re willing and able to move all of your belongings.
  • Do you disassemble and reassemble furniture? Some movers include furniture disassembly and reassembly in their service offerings, while others don’t—so if you have furniture you want to be disassembled and/or reassembled, it’s important to ask whether that’s a service the moving company offers.
  • How much will it cost?—and are there any extra fees I need to know about? You want to have a clear idea of the total cost of the move before you hire the movers—so make sure to not only get an estimate but also ask about any extra or hidden fees before making a decision and hiring movers.
