Call it affordable, economical, inexpensive—it’s smart to get the most value for your dollar. Moving is expensive and finding the best value for cheap movers Austin is important.

You need reliable, experienced movers who will treat your belongings with care and respect. It’s essential that the moving company shows up on time and transports your furniture and other possessions efficiently and carefully. 


5 Things to Look For: Cheap Movers Austin

1. Does the moving company have great reviews?

Simpler Moving has 226 Google reviews and a five-star rating. We love what we do and our goal is always to have clients who are happy and satisfied with the experience.

Layne and his team at Simpler Moving & Packing know their stuff! The driver, Sawyer, and his 2 helpers showed up on time and took pride in doing the job right. — Matthew

Simpler Moving made our move exactly as easy as that, simpler. They treated all our stuff with care, and as if it was their own house, they were packing up. The crew was professional and polite. Couldn’t ask for an easier move! Thanks, ya’ll. — Mitchell

Do reviews matter? According to a recent article, 79% of consumers say they rely on professional reviews as much as they do personal recommendations. After all, these are customers who’ve used the service and care enough to tell others about their experience.


2. Do they have an experienced and professional team?

We pack, unload, disassemble, and reassemble. As experts, we know how to pack your most fragile possessions or your heaviest furniture. Our teams are not only experienced, but they also have pride in a job well done.

Watch out for unlicensed movers with no markings on their trucks or using rental trucks. The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) mandates that licensed mover must have not only the name of the company but also their TxDMV certificate number and USDOT number on both sides of their trucks.

Texas requires all licensed movers to give you a copy of a booklet that lists your consumer rights and responsibilities. A professional mover will provide you with both a proposal and a contract to sign, too.


3. Will their prices help you move within your budget?

We can’t do anything about the high cost of rent in Austin or the escalating home prices, but we can save you time and money on moving. How to find cheap movers in Austin? Get in touch and we’re happy to give you a quote in writing.

If a price is too good to be true, that is always a warning sign. If your prized possessions are harmed, if the movers damage floors or walls, or if they don’t show up at all, you’ll find that cheapest isn’t always the best choice.


4. Is the moving company licensed and insured?

If you hire someone with a truck and a dolly to move your furniture, what happens if they’re injured or they damage your belongings? 

Moving companies must be licensed in Texas for your protection. Check out the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles informative publication Don’t Make a Move Without Us, for more details.

You can verify our official license here.


5. Does the moving company offer the services you need?

Perhaps you’re moving from an apartment on the fifth floor; can that budget moving company carefully move your furniture down the stairs if there isn’t a freight elevator? Will they bring clean boxes, expertly pack and unpack, and then recycle all the materials for you? Simpler Moving does all this and more.

We promise to take the time needed to care for your belongings with as much care as if they were our own.
