Reasons Why You Need To Hire Experienced Movers
You've signed all the paperwork, meet with the mortgage company and closed the deal. Congratulations on your new home! Now the packing begins.
Many new home owners or renters cringe at the idea of shelling out for professional moving services (http://www.ablemoversokc.com/services), but each year, people who go the "DIY", route with bargain solutions wind up paying much more for their move than they anticipated. Why? It's all because of the hidden costs of moving on the cheap. Hidden Truck Rental Fees
It's common for budget-conscious consumers to rent equipment to keep their moving costs down. However, rental companies are only inexpensive if you stay within mileage limits, replenish gasoline, and keep their property in pristine condition. You will be charged for every scratch and dent — maybe even the damage left by others if you don't properly document it prior to use. Need to make an extra trip? Fees. Move taking longer than expected? Fees. Did someone back into your rental? Big fees. Potential Damages
Aside from rental equipment damages, bargain basement moving services could leave you with serious repair bills. If you're considering hiring local students for a few bucks, be forewarned. They might save you money initially, but they won't have liability insurance, and they may not be able to replace high-dollar possessions. The low cost of inexperience is usually offset by repair bills and frustration. Y ..... >>Read More>>

No Surprises with Exact Moving Quotes
Able Moving Company offers fixed pricing – a service that is practically unheard of in the moving industry. Most Oklahoma City movers charge by the hour, which means that you have to pay for their efficiency. If you get a slow crew that doesn't do a good job, you're out extra money for no reason. Before you decide to work with a company like that, you need to see the benefits of exact moving quotes. You won't be surprised by a big bill ever again. Advantages of Fixed Price Moving Quotes
Here are some reasons why you may prefer exact moving prices over hourly rates:
Plan an accurate budget. Rather than setting aside the money you think it will cost for your move, you can save the precise amount you need.
Lose the stress with timing. You don't have to watch the clock with your movers because you don't pay for their time. They will work as efficiently as possible to get your move completed quickly.
Know you're getting a good deal. It is easy to get ripped off when you pay by the hour. With fixed pricing, all the risk lies on your movers.
Feel confident about your move. With a quote in hand, you won't have to worry about hearing any excuses for a bump in price. We assess the need for that ahead of time.
As you can see, having an exact moving quote can make your relocation experience much more enjoyable. That is what makes Able Movers the best moving company OKC has to offer. How to Get an Exact Moving Quo ..... >>Read More>>

The Do's and Don'ts of a Residential Move
Moving a house is much like moving an apartment or a business, but it is much more predictable and strategic. In the crowded streets of Oklahoma City, it's nice for us to be able to pull into a driveway, load up, and go. If you are undergoing a residential move in the next few weeks, there are some things you can do to make the process fast and easy. The more you help us, the better we can serve you. Here are some residential moving (http://www.ablemoversokc.com/ services) do's and don'ts you may want to think about. What to Do for a Residential Move
Reserve your appointment well in advance, especially if you're moving in May, late December, or August.
Use boxes to pack instead of bags. Boxes can be stacked on a dolly, making them much easier to move in large sets.
Have a plan for your new house so your movers know where to go with boxes and furniture.
Ask for a sufficient crew. We'll tell you how many people you should have for a project, but it's up to you to actually make that reservation.
Identify fragile boxes or items so they can be placed properly on the truck. What NOT to Do for a Residential Move
Forget to pick up your keys or transfer your utilities.
Wait to pack the day before the move.
Forget to take out the trash when you leave. You'll end up with a swarm of bugs the new residents have to take care of.
Block important pathways with boxes and furniture.
Be somewhere else when t ..... >>Read More>>

Key Points to Keep in Mind Before Before Calling an Oklahoma City Moving Company
Whether you’re looking to do a residential move, or a commercial move, there are a list of questions you should ask yourself so that you are sure to be well prepared in advance. Don’t wait until after you’ve chosen the Oklahoma City moving company you’ll be using to discover the answers to these key questions. You’re trusting these people with the possessions you’ve worked hard to obtain, find out as much as you can before choosing your movers in Oklahoma City. Can you schedule your Oklahoma City movers to come in mid-month
The majority of moving companies in Oklahoma City are busiest at the beginning and end of the month. Being able to schedule your move for the middle of the month allows you to have the best chance of getting a great time scheduled for your day.
Not only will you get a better time scheduled by your Oklahoma City movers mid-month, but supply and demand can affect pricing in this industry as much as any other. The labor of the employees is also a factor. The moving company you choose is going to employ humans, those who are at the end of a week of overtime days due to last minute month end add-ons are just plain going to be tired!
Another point to consider in regards to scheduling is to call at least a week in advance. Having a team that is scheduled properly, rather than rushed, will give you better service. Remember the last t ..... >>Read More>>

Tips to Keep in Mind before Your Next Move
Moving soon and don't know where to start? You are not alone. As a longstanding Oklahoma City moving company, we have seen countless panicked faces when we show up for a move before the clients are ready. Assuming you don't want to be one of those panic-stricken residents when you move, there are some simple tricks you can try to make your move go as smoothly as possible. Here are 10 tips to keep in mind before your next move.
Schedule your move for the middle of the month. This is considered the "down time" for most Oklahoma City movers, so you're much more likely to get an appointment then.
Verify the credentials of your moving company. You don't want to trust just anyone with your stuff. Make sure your moving company is licensed, insured, and fully equipped to handle the task at hand.
Call to schedule your move in advance. If you wait until the last minute, there may not be an appointment available for you. We recommend calling at least a week in advance, preferably longer if you need a moving quote (http://www.ablemoversokc.com/quote). That gives us time to set up the best crew possible for your move.
Start packing early on. Most people assume they have less than they actually do. Pack up everything you don't need, and get boxes ready for last minute items. Then all you have to do is wake up and go on moving day.
Clear a path for furniture. We try to get the big furniture into the truck as quickly as possible, so h ..... >>Read More>>
