If you are planning to move house, or office, or even to migrate, you will definitely need someone to help you. This is where moving companies in Hong Kong comes to play.
You will need to engage the services of movers to help to move your stuff from your old place, to your new location.
But the question is, how can you engage a reliable mover to move your items, without worrying, and without stress? Let’s find out more in this article.
There are many moving companies in Hong Kong that you can choose from, that you can call to engage, but if you want to get a good one, here are some questions you have to ask.
1. Where can they transport?
This is the first and most important question to ask the moving company. Depends on your needs, you may want to just move a furniture, or move all your items in your old house to your new house. Or move your office items and equipment to your new office. Or move everything in Hong Kong to your new residence overseas.
Whatever it is, you have to check clearly with the company the specific moving service they provide. Otherwise, you are just wasting your time by just asking about the price.
2. Can they support?
Next, after knowing they provide the specific service you want, you have to ask if they are able to support your request. If you are just asking for help to move a cupboard or a sofa set, or a refrigerator from one place to another, that’s easy.
The mover can just do it with 1-2 person, with a van or small lorry, and that’s it. It’s quite easy.
Now, if you’re requesting a moving service to move everything in your house, then you better find a moving company with the manpower and vehicles to ship your items from one place to another. The scale of the work is different, hence you want a company who is able to fulfil your request.
3. How are they moving it?
Moving items may seem easy. It looks like it is just carrying items, put in vehicles, and carry to the other place. But there’s a big difference how normal people move things, compared to professional movers.
Some items will need special equipment and technical skills to move them. Example, piano. It is not just about 2 person carrying a piano out of a door, and moving it to another place.
It has to be moved properly with the right method to ensure the piano is not damaged during the process. The mover has to know how to move it, where to carry, so that the piano is not damaged.
4. How much?
Okay. That’s the question you want, but it should be the last question to ask the mover. This is because you want to know what you will get from the mover, what value added services you will have, instead of just asking directly for the price.
When asking about the price, it is also important to take note of the extra charges that comes with it. Some of the extra charges that movers will add on, is the time of delivery, location of pickup and destination, urgency of moving, and assess to lift at the new location.
It is normal to compare quotes and prices across all movers in Hong Kong, but you have to compare apples to apples, side by side, so that you get the best deal (and not just the cheapest price).
Yeap! These are the 4 questions that you should ask before engaging a moving service. These will help you find the best and most reliable mover in Hong Kong!
