How to Find Reliable Santa Barbara Movers

Over 42 million people move in the U.S. every year. That’s an amazing 1 in 4 adults. A person will make over 7 moves in their lifetime. Research has shown that relocation ranks third as the most stressful event in a person’s life. Even though we may be excited about the move, there can be mixed emotions about leaving behind a familiar neighborhood, close friends and fond memories. The last thing we need to worry about is if a Santa Barbara moving company will deliver our belongings safely on the other end.

The entire process will be a lot easier if you can find a reliable Santa Barbara moving company, though this might not always be as easy as it seems. It’s not just a matter of picking up the phone book and searching under “moving companies”. To begin with there are a lot of different types of moving companies from those that limit their services to local moves to those that will help you relocate across the country or even to another country. So the type of move you are planning and even what you need to move will determine the type of Santa Barbara moving company you’ll need to hire.

A Santa Barbara moving company can offer you a wide range of services on top of simply moving your furniture and other belongings. They can provide you with packing boxes and other materials, help you with the packing, provide temporary or long term storage if needed, and even unpack everything for you once your belongings arrive at their new home. Of course these services will cost extra but it’s nice to know they’re available if you need them.

Pricing can vary greatly from one Santa Barbara moving company to another, providing you with very different estimates for the exact same move. You may hesitate to go with the lowest bid, worried about the quality of the service and safety of your possessions.

Where to Look for Reputable Santa Barbara Movers

Start by simply asking people you know. Almost everyone has gone through a move at one time in their life, so all you need to do is ask around among your friends, family and those you work with to a few recommendations for a quality Santa Barbara moving company. Talk to the real estate agent that helped with the sale or purchase of your home. A realtor can usually give you some good recommendations based on the experience of their other clients. Look for moving vehicles that are working in your city if you're planning a local move. If you repeatedly see the trucks and vans of a specific Santa Barbara moving company, you have to know there’s a reason why they’re so busy.

Check the internet. Most moving companies have a website that will list their services, years in business, geographical areas that they cover, and even work sheets to help you get an idea of what it will cost you. You can find their contact information including an email address incase you have any questions you want to ask before talking with them further. You can also use the internet to do some initial background checking on any Santa Barbara moving company.

Getting a Bid from the Santa Barbara Movers

After you compile your list, it’s time to call the Better Business Bureau to determine if anyone has ever filed a complaint about one of the companies you have in mind. Considering the volume of business a Santa Barbara moving company handles it’s not unusual for a company to have a few complaints, but the important thing is to find out exactly what the complaints were and if they were taken care of to the customer’s satisfaction.
Before talking directly with any Santa Barbara moving company, it’s a good idea to make a list of how many rooms you have and if you have any large pieces of furniture that might require extra work or care to move. Don’t forget to include the garage or any patio furniture. You don’t need to be exact. It’s just to give the Santa Barbara moving company an idea of what to expect.

Making Your Choice: The Santa Barbara Movers

You may find that comparing quotes can be a bit confusing. The prices can vary greatly as well as the services offered and the methods used in pricing. One Santa Barbara moving company may charge an hourly rate, another may estimate the volume based on the number of rooms you need to move and still others by the estimated weight per load.

It's important that you get all your Santa Barbara moving company quotes in writing and to make sure that you completely understand how they are calculated. Make sure you read all the fine print. You need to know what your options are should there be any damages. Some companies won't pay for damages if you packed your belongings yourself unless it can be proved that the damage was a direct cause of their mishandling.

Once you have some information on each Santa Barbara moving company and compare the bids they have given you, you can then narrow your choice down the one Santa Barbara moving company that you feel will do the best job. It’s true that moving can be an emotional and stressful time. So the last thing you need to deal with is incompetent movers or damaged possessions. Whether you’re moving down the block or across the country, you need to find a reliable Santa Barbara moving company that you know you can trust.

You are the best moving company I have ever used. Thank you so much for treating my piano with the same loving care that I do.

Mr. Drew, I am sending this short not to tell you about the superb job your crew did in my recent move. While I was only moving about 20 miles, the packing job was done as if I was moving across country. The care and professionalism of your company is second to none.
Tom L. - Thousand Oaks
We have used Buck's moving many times through our history. Whether we have heavy equipment to move from one location to another, or are relocating one of our branch offices to a new site. Buck's is always on time, does a professional job, and checks back with me after the move to insure everything was finished to my satisfaction. I highly recommend this company for any move, whether big or small.
