Request an Estimate - Step 1 of 2
Are you ready to sell your home? If you are, then there are a few things to remember. While you are gathering your free moving quotes from various different movers, you should also think about getting moving quotes for other services. When you move, you need to think about how you are going to leave your home to the buyer that is going to be moving in. You can easily break a deal by leaving a home with dirt and damage, so consider hiring a cleaning and painting crew or even cleaning and painting yourself.
There are plenty of specialized moving companies that only deal with one aspect of moving; moving out. These companies often offer package deals where they come in and clean, repair, and paint a home before a new tenant or buyer moves in. You can often find these companies locally, so getting a long distance moving quote will usually not include such services. Many companies operate within and under the realm of a typical moving truck company, but others may operate independently. The company that you choose to go with should always be licensed and bonded in the event that something should go wrong and damage is created rather than repaired.
Some companies are happy to come in and take care of such tasks while you are still packing, but most of these cleaning and repair companies will only come into the home after everything has been moved out. Keep in mind that the fee these companies charge will generally be based on the tasks you need completed as well as the size of the home. You can save some money by only opting for certain services or even opting out of certain things. Make sure that you ask about what the company includes when you call to get moving quotes for moving services such as these.
Make sure that you do a final walk through with the company representative that has been assigned to your job. You should be careful to make sure that paint has not made it to places where it does not belong, such as the rug. Also make sure to check the specific repairs that you asked to be completed to make sure that everything was taken care of as you needed it. Remember, you are paying for this service, and you deserve to be happy with what you get.
No matter why you are moving, or where you are moving to, you should always strive to leave your current home in good condition for those people that will be moving into it. Make sure to hire a reputable company to take care of any cleaning and repairs that you might need done if you do not want to take care of it yourself. Remember, whatever you do, leaving your home in great condition will go a long way to securing the home’s sale.
