Cheap Moving

Done Right by Hilford Moving & Storage

You may not think of professional movers as your source for cheap moving, but read on to find out why you may want to consider the moving team from Hilford before looking at some cheaper options.

Moving can be stressful.

While people like new opportunities and a new apartment or house, they don’t like the work involved with moving their stuff to another location. So what do people do?

They get someone else to do the moving for them. When looking for a moving company, the most important elements to look for are price, trust, and insurance.

Cheap Movers or Beer Buddies

  • The group of college guys one finds on Craigslist may offer the lowest price, but where will they be when a couch is damaged or something irreplaceable?
  • A friend with a truck may do it for all the beer in the world, but how many trips will that take?
  • Also, the onus still lies on you and the friend to do the heavy lifting.
  • What about storage of anything that won't go in right away?

The best scenario would be a company of professionals, insured for safety, with reasonable prices.

If you are looking for cheap moving in Ventura, California, you would be smart to go with a company like Hilford Moving and Storage, a licensed Allied Van Lines company.  Hilford is uniquely positioned to not only have a reputation built over the past 80+ years in the Ventura area and all along the state of California, but also they have the reputation of Allied Van Lines, another 80 year old company for national and international moving expertise.

What is the importance of insurance if you're considering the cheap moving route? Things are replaceable, to be sure. But who wants to pay for a new television when one is not needed? Having an insured mover is extremely important.  If you're one of those who feel that you don't need to get insurance, that insurance is not needed, until your items break, then I guess only once your items are broken, will you become a “Yes, please” person when it comes to insurance. Only then will you become aware of the  value.

While a 12 pack of beer for your buddy may be cheaper short term, not having to worry about the hassles of moving all the items, risking injury and damage to said items, becomes cheaper in the long run.
