Cheap Moving Companies in Phoenix,AZ
Things you need to know when looking for Movers!
There are many options when you start searching for a local moving company or long distance movers. So your question is how do I know where to start to find a good, dependable, reasonable priced mover.
Well, there are three categories of moving companies. I'm going to set your mind at ease ,by giving you some important information.
Looking for a cheap local movers, here is what you need to know and need to ask yourself or the movers. If you are hiring a Moving Company that is charging $35.00 per hour for 2-men or $49.99 per hour for 3-men, it usually too good to be true.
They usually charge extra fee’s which always ends up costing more money in the end. If you do the math for the labor, truck fee, gas and insurance, there wouldn’t be enough money for that company to stay in business.
So many if these companies charge extra for stairs, heavy items, Shrink wrap, fuel charges, mileage and many more that could end up costing more ,than if you would have went with a reparable professional moving company.
When hiring a Licensed Professional Moving Company you will pay less in the end. They usually get done a lot faster with no damages.
They usually don’t have a truck and you would need to rent a truck for them to move you.
Most of the companies are not on Google Maps or Yelp and Some of these companies on Craigslist have changed their name, due to bad reviews.
Cheap Long Distance Movers: There are a lot of moving companies that say they do long distance moves , but in realty they usually sub it out to a third party company. When the third party gets there they can change the price since you didn't ever talk with them about your move. Which will put you in a big bind ,since you need to move on short notice. So you need to ask the company doing your move, will your company be the ones moving me or another company. Also, Ask them to email the quote so you have something to go by when the movers show on loading day.
Mid Price Movers & Family Owned:
Most mid price movers are family owned or individually owned and they take great pride in there business. These company want to keep a good reputation in the community and are licensed and insured to protect you and them self. They will provide the truck, tools, dollies, pads, experienced movers with background checks. They usually don't have hidden charges for stairs, heavy items, mileage fee, tape & etc..
Average rates are 2-men @ $65.00 per hour and 3-men @ $100.00 per hour + travel time
On the onsite estimate you will usually get one of the owners that would do your estimate which is good ,because they have knowledge in what it take to do the move.
Long distance moves: Some companies do work with the third party companies so do your homework.

Van line Moving company & Franchise Movers:
The Big companies and franchise company are usually high by the hour for local moves due to the large overhead, such as salesmen and office staff that helps ran the company and high pay scales and health plans. For the most part the movers have to get certified by getting trained by there own training team. The estimators are salesmen and have never even done a local or long distance job. They are usually high pressure salesman for the customer to book on the spot.
Long distance moves are done by owner operators, which usually have to contract help at either end for loading and unloading. The driver is paid a flat rate and they have to pay there own labor and expenses.
With all of the information you will need to check on your movers at the BBB for reviews that will make you feel comfortable and trustworthy to choice the right company for you.
