Do you have a certified moving consultant? Do you need an accredited and registered company to help you with your move? These are both questions that you need to ask yourself when you know that you are going to be planning a move. But you may ask, what even is a moving consultant? Isn’t moving pretty much X, Y, Z? Not always. We will explain what it means to have a trusted advisor to help you with your move.
What is a Certified Moving Consultant?
First off, a certified moving consultant is someone who works for a moving company that has the proper knowledge in order to help provide excellent customer service and assistance when making plans for a move. They have gone through the proper training and licensing in order to have the credentials. When you begin doing research on which moving company you want to choose, it is very wise to make a decision not only on price, but on if they have moving consultants that come and give you a consultation. Also, when a moving company has a certified moving consultant, you can rest assured that the company isn’t just two ordinary guys and a truck but is a registered company that has taken the time to find the proper consultant and can give the best advice and customer service.
What All is Involved with a Moving Consultation
Usually a consultation will consist of a moving consultant coming to your house and walking through all of the ins and outs of your needs. Taking notes on staircases and turns, the amount of items you have, any fragile or large pieces that need extra care, or any other things that they need to be aware of. That way on the day of your move, there will be no surprises for anybody and they will be able to complete your move in a timely and organized fashion. It’s important that you are honest and upfront with everything that you have. Most often with a consultant, the company will offer services like helping to pack and unpack your stuff besides just the actual moving of the items in and out of the houses.
There is More Than Just Service
Even though it may seem unnecessary to have a moving consultant, it can end up saving you time, money, and hassle at the end of the day. They will know the proper tools that will be needed for certain items in case anything needs to be broken down and put back together. Before moving day, they will be able to prep the movers in what to expect so that the movers will be prepared and make a plan on completing everything. This way on the day of your move they wont be standing around waiting to be told what to do and can be efficient and safe. One of the additional perks of having a professional moving company assist, along with the moving consultant, is the supplies. If you don’t want to hassle with any of the boxes or packing/moving supplies they can provide boxes, moving pads, straps, and whatever else you may need for a move. The aim is to have a safe and quick move for everyone involved and this is what a certified moving consultant can do.
