If you're looking for a reliable mover, getting moving quotes takes a few simple steps. First, decide if you need a trailer rental, van rental, etc. Second, ask your friends and family if they have any movers they would recommend. Almost everyone has moved at one point or another -- and looked for the best deal -- so tap into the resources that are right in front of you.
Gather a few names from the folks close to you, then move onto the phone book. You can find not only a great amount of listings, but many companies that offer discounts in their ads. Finally, search the Internet for moving companies in your area. When you get your list compiled, call each company and be sure to ask if you can receive an in-person estimate. It's vital to have representatives from the moving company see your home first-hand to get an accurate quote.
