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 time your boss asked you to get a task done with little warning and not enough time to do it? You knew that with more notice and a better timeline you could do the job better, it’s the same with movers in Oklahoma City!
Does your moving company have credentials
Anyone can buy a truck, a few straps and say they’re a moving company. Every Oklahoma City moving company must be licensed and insured to be truly professional. Ask to see these documents if you’re unsure. Other credential you can check are with the Better Business Bureau and local ratings sites. If the movers you’re considering can’t provide any of these, or have poor reviews, you need to keep looking.
Can the moving company you’re considering really handle you move
This relates to the stress of moving. If your company isn’t up to the stress of your big move then they can’t help you. Companies that can handle it will have:
- special equipment for awkward items
- standard dollies and carts
- enough staff to do your move in a reasonable amount of time
- trucks in good repair
Not having these essential pieces of equipment can add to your stress! A good moving company in Oklahoma City will do everything it can to minimize the stress of your move.

"...I decided to use Able Movers, Inc. because they are a local company and are family owned. I have used them three times, twice for some in-house moving. I am very satisfied with their service. They were there on time and there were no scratches on anything. The last time I used them they definitely helped make my move a smooth one."--- Karen G., Yukon
"... The guys at Able moving were very courteous. It was a very hot day for our move, but these guys really seemed to enjoy what they were doing. We sure don't plan on moving again in the near future, but if we do, we'll call the guys at Able Moving. If anyone asks for our recommendation, we'll gladly recommend the guys at Able Moving...

"... really liked getting a real quote before our move. Other moving companies we've used before added charges that weren't in our original agreement. Then they wouldn't finish moving our furniture until we paid the extra. Thank you Able Moving Company. It's refreshing to find a moving company that's actually honest."--- Robert S., OKC
