I’ve always wanted to be closer to the rest of the family. This was now possible, since I sold the business and was in a position to relocate to one of the oldest cities in the country! Of course, by that I mean Boston, MA. My wife and I are originally from Massachusetts, however, we were running a business in the Chicago area and had been doing this for quite a few years. The business was pretty successful and eventually I was offered a tidy sum if I was willing to sell. Well, in this case, I was certainly willing to take that offer and move back to Massachusetts.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I like Chicago – but it’s just not “home”. so now we were faced with the logistics of making a move an we were in the market for some inexpensive moving supplies in order to get started with the packing. Those supplies included some high quality boxes designed for general moving as well as boxes that are designed for moving delicate items. After we secured those, we would then be in the market for a good moving company.
I’ve had experience with moving companies in the past and I have to say that I’ve found it very important to do your research well beforehand when it comes to selecting the company that will help you and your family relocate. I just don’t need any extra moving stress when it comes to seeing my belongings loaded onto a truck bound for my new home! It became clear to me a long time ago that the best way to proceed is to first ask for quotes and then take a hard look at any online reviews from other consumer experiences.
It’s amazing how much you can find out about a moving company just by reading what other people have taken the time to post. For example, after reading a few reviews, I learned that the cheapest movers in town are not always the best movers in town. I guess this concept is true for most of the things that you can purchase online or anywhere else, for that matter. In my experience, though, you can have both. Good quality and a low reasonable price. This is why I first ask for quotes, then follow up with some detailed research.
