If you decide that moving on your own isnít for you, you need to find and hire good movers to get you from place to place. You can start with a simple internet search, but you need to find the right movers to be able to get dependable service. Below, youíll find some tips to help making the process of finding a moving company that much easier. 



Get Quotes From A Few Companies


Get quotes on prices from a few different moving companies. Donít just go with the first company that you find. Do a bit of research and even see if you can get some type of a background check on each company that you get a quote from. This way, youíll avoid any nightmare stories from your move.


Have A Mover Do An Assessment


Your movers should come and visit your home before you move. Will they be packing for you? Do They need a larger size truck? If the moving company comes to make an assessment of the home, they will know what needs to be done when moving day arrives. Make an inventory list of everything in your home so that youíll know what you have to take with you. Youíll also know what you have in your new home once you get there. This can really help streamline the process.   


Price Isnít Everything


The most expensive mover may not provide much more services over the least expensive moving company. Sometimes, itís better to pay a bit more if you get additional services like boxes or packing. If a quote is much lower than you think it should be, then you probably should be a bit cautious of hiring the company.


Look For Reputation


You need to be aware of the reputation that a moving company carries with them. If youíre moving locally, you can usually go with a local company that has some good reviews. If youíre moving across states, try and find a larger company that has a lot of experience and a reputation built up for those types of long-distance moves. 


Ask Questions


Youíre paying a lot of money to hire a moving company and have a right to know exactly what youíre paying for. Make a list of questions to ask each company. Find out their protocols and understand how your things will be treated. You want to know that your items will be in good hands. Some things youíll want to know about each moving company:


  • What kind of insurance do you have?
  • What types of fees do you have?
  • Whatís the timeline for my move? 
  • Have all your movers undergone background checks?


If the company tends to avoid certain questions, you should beware. With a little research, moving both near and far will be a breeze.

Do you live in a house that has hard water? You know, where you get those white rings on the counters and the faucets have this grungy, crusty build up. While youíre at the DIY store, you see this free water testing kit and decide its time to learn what is going on. You get the results, and the company asks to come out and give you a further evaluation as well as introduce you to a solution. The time this takes is well worth the process because it gives you valuable information about your water and how to fix it. Unfortunately, the typical solution is a $6,000 to $8,000 fix. Now maybe that is in your budget, and that is great, but most of the time that solution still involves the use of salt.

There is another way 

Alternatives exist where the installation cost may be way lessóalthough it might be the same depending on how large of a system you get. But more importantly, it is a solution that doesnít involve the constant purchase of salt. 

A recent addition to the water treatment lineup includes many different brands on salt-free water conditioners or de-scalers. Typically, a non-salt system consists of a large particle filter and a multiple-part canister. The system works by neutralizing minerals such as magnesium and calcium by changing their ionic makeup so that these minerals do not stick to pipes and other surfaces. They do remain in the water, though, so if you allow a pool of water to dry, the minerals will form a powdery residue that easily brushes off.

DIY Installation?

Installation is not complicated, but if you have little to no experience plumbing, you should hire a local plumber or certified installer to do the project. It is essential to put it in-line with the water going the correct direction (into the water heater, for example), so youíll need to know which way the pipe is flowing where you add the joint.

Does it work?

The results are different from a water softener. Youíll see a reduction of the calcium in the water. Your skin will feel less dried out, and dish soap will create larger amounts of suds. You will not have that slippery feel of salt-softened water though. Most importantly, you can drink the water and water your plants with the water directly from the tap. 

Is it green?

The environment gains because there is no back-washing of the system like with traditional salt-based softeners, so you are not dumping salt water into the drainage system, and you are not using a bunch of extra water. 

What does it cost to maintain?

The cost to operate it once it after installation is very low. There is no salt to purchase every month. You only have to change the large particle filter every 6 to 12 months, depending on your water source. You may even receive extra filters with your installation, so check with the dealer.

The cost to DIY the project includes the purchase of the system and a few fittings to make the connection into your water pipes. Check with your real estate professional to see if adding a water conditioner system will increase the value of your home for resale.
