5 Common Myths About Moving Companies
People think that moving abroad is a fairytale, you think of moving to another country, and everything happens with the flick of a finger. You get a visa, your belongings automatically land there, and you get a nice house with a beautiful backyard. And you start living happily there. I wish it was that easier, but it is not!
It's great if you are moving abroad to begin a new beginning of life. But leaving your motherland and moving to another country is not easier. It is not only about missing your land or getting a visa, finding a job, and a place to live. It is also about moving your belongings. That's where the real struggle begins. Many people find it easier to hire an international moving company to handle this headache. However, some people feel reluctant because of all the myths associated with these companies. Not all rumors are wrong, but some definitely are.
So, in this blog, we are going to burst a few myths about international movers so that you can make an informed decision:
Doing it yourself is cheaper than hiring a company. That's one of the biggest myths I have heard, and that's totally understandable because when your money is flowing like water, you want to cut money wherever you can. But do you know that sometimes doing it yourself can cost you more than hiring a company? Especially when you are unaware of the whole procedure or some valuable item breaks (tsk!) while moving things.
On the other hand, when you hire professional movers, they know their work very well. Moreover, they bring their packing material and are responsible for carrying your stuff carefully. If something breaks, they will be responsible. So isn't it better to let professionals do their work?
All movers are scammers. No! A few movers can be scammers. Well, yes! So, whether you get a scammer or the right person depends on who you hire. That's why choosing the moving company carefully is important rather than hiring the first option you see online.
Do your research, see their experience level, check their reputation, what services they offer, have they moved to that specific country previously, and what about their prices and for what. Asking all these questions is important before hiring a company to avoid scammers and starting your life’s beginning with a bad experience.
Can all lawyers, doctors, engineers, and teachers be the same even if they have the same degree? Hope your answer is no. Similarly, all moving companies are also not the same. They differ depending on their services, prices, experience, customer service, reputation, reliability, etc. So, don't consider every company claiming to offer the best services as the best. Carefully evaluate them, and then hire because you might get the worst wrapped in the packing of the best.
Well, I wish this was true because otherwise, everything would have been done smoothly, within budget. But unfortunately, different companies have made their specific cost plans that include different services. For example, your selected quote might not include taking care of your things if you arrive late at the destination. You might have to pay extra to them to keep your stuff in a safe place until you arrive. So, it is essential to ask what your selected moving plan includes to avoid receiving a pile of extra bills that you never knew about
This sounds legit if you take the literal meaning of moving company. It seems as if they only move things. However, it is not true! They are also responsible for packing and unpacking your stuff. Yes, you heard it right. You don't have to go through the annoying packing task. In fact, you don't even need to arrange boxes because they bring boxes and packing material that is sturdy enough to not tear or burst while moving. So, don't worry. With an international moving company, you get end-to-end services.
So, now you know the ins and outs of the international movers, what is true about them, and what is just a myth. This will help you clear your mind and make an informed decision based on facts, not myths. Some people might have faced some cons of hiring an international moving company. But a few bad experiences can't be generalized to the whole moving industry. Generally, most people have received more good than bad by hiring international movers. So, if you are thinking of moving abroad, international movers might help you make your journey hassle-free.
