Local Movers in Fort Lauderdale

Moving for the First Time?

On the day of your local move, your movers will arrive to load your packed and labeled boxes into their moving van. Should you opt into their packing services, a crew will come on a prearranged date before your moving day to pack the items you’ve designated. Once every item has been safely loaded onto the truck, they will transport them to your new home and carefully unload and arrange them in the correct rooms according to the labels on your boxes. After all the items have been unloaded, you will inspect each one for possible damage that could have occurred during the transit. Once you’ve confirmed everything is in order and damage-free, you can officially sign off on the completion of your Fort Lauderdale local move.

Local Moving FAQ

“When it comes to a local move, from my experience, each one is a unique situation. This is why it is essential for someone to visually see what needs to be moved, whether virtually or in person.”

How Do I Find the Best Fort Lauderdale Local Movers?

Finding the best local movers in Fort Lauderdale starts with asking the right questions. Forbes declares, “The right moving company can transform this overwhelming process into a seamless transition.” It’s crucial to do thorough research and consider a variety of factors to ensure a smooth, stress-free move. The first questions to ask are:

  • Are the movers fully licensed and insured? Moves within the state of Florida require a Florida IM license. This should be prominently displayed in the footer of your potential mover’s website.
  • Do they have awards and accreditations that speak to their trustworthiness? An A+ rating from the BBB or holding ProMover certification from the American Trucking Association: Moving & Storage Conference are two examples.
  • Are they locally owned or a chain? Independent moving companies that are family owned with the owner on site can provide a level of customer service that national chain movers can’t match.
  • How many years of experience do they have? It’s key to avoid startups that aren’t equipped to handle every aspect of your move.

Consider these questions and create a list of movers that you can get estimates from. We suggest getting at least three to make sure you get a fair price and determine the best local movers for you in Fort Lauderdale. When you consider all of the above, you’ll see Cousins USA is the best Fort Lauderdale mover.

How Much Does It Cost to Hire Local Movers in Fort Lauderdale?

The cost of a local moving company can vary significantly based on many factors, such as the size and distance of the move. As of May 1, 2024, according to MoveBuddha, “The typical cost for hiring movers in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, is $112 per hour. If you’re moving locally within Fort Lauderdale, moving companies range from $429 to $3,800 on average.” The best way to get an accurate estimate is through a complete home survey conducted by a professional mover. This comprehensive survey assesses all the items to be moved, the size of the home, and any special requirements to provide a precise quote.

At Cousins USA, we offer both in-home and virtual surveys to give our customers accurate estimates. Unlike some other movers, our estimates are never given over the phone; instead, we meticulously examine all items to be moved. This thorough process helps avoid unexpected costs and ensures you receive an accurate estimate on your local move. “Our commitment to providing precise estimates through thorough evaluation sets us apart in the industry,” assures our President, Joseph Pollio.

How Quickly Can Fort Lauderdale Movers Handle a Local Move?

The timeline for a move can vary depending on several factors, including the size of the move, the distance between locations, and the specific services required. Professional movers typically aim to complete a local move within a day. According to MoveBuddha, “If you’re hiring professional movers for a small local move, it’ll take a few hours.”

At Cousins USA, we understand that sometimes moving needs arise unexpectedly. That’s why we offer last-minute moving services to accommodate those who require swift relocation assistance. Our experienced team is equipped to handle urgent moves with efficiency and professionalism, ensuring your belongings are transported safely and securely to your new location. With our last-minute moving services, you can rely on us to provide timely and reliable assistance whenever you need it most. “Let us know if we can help you pack. Our team is pretty good about showing up at the spur of the moment,” emphasizes our President, Joseph Pollio.

Do Local Movers in Fort Lauderdale Have the Proper Licenses and Insurance?

For a local move in Florida, you will want to look for a Florida IM license number. This should be displayed prominently in the footer of their website. You can also find their USDOT license number, which can be used to find the mover in the Federal Mover’s Database. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration states, “Use this search tool to check whether an interstate mover is properly registered with the U.S Department of Transportation.” This provides key information about the moving company and identifies if they are properly licensed.

At Cousins USA, we have all the necessary licenses and insurance to keep your move safe and worry-free. You can check our Florida IM license number, IM256, and our USDOT license number, 70719, to confirm. Plus, we have General Liability and Workers Comp insurance. “We have all the proper licenses and insurance to demonstrate our commitment to legality and safety throughout the moving process,” emphasizes our President, Joseph Pollio.

Do Fort Lauderdale Local Movers Have Reviews from Past Customers?

Online reviews should be taken with a grain of salt as you don’t know the people leaving them, but they do provide a general look into the customer care of your potential movers. We recommend looking at the total number of reviews, the overall score, and how recent the reviews are to get the best sense of how well you can trust a moving company. This Forbes article says, “Real experiences from past clients can give you valuable insights into the company’s reliability, professionalism and how they handle issues.”

At Cousins USA, we have earned an A+ rating from the BBB, which is a testament to our quality service. This dedication to customer care has earned us hundreds of positive reviews online. You can find all of our Google Reviews here. “Our commitment to excellence is reflected in every aspect of our service, from our trained professionals to our top-notch customer support,” affirms our President, Joseph Pollio.

Cousins USA

Do Local Movers in Fort Lauderdale Give Any Guarantees for Their Moving Services?

The biggest guarantee to look for in your moving company is accurate, upfront pricing. Hidden fees from rogue movers can ruin your budget and cause financial strain due to the surprise. Make sure your mover has no surprise fees by getting an in-depth estimate and by checking reviews to see if anyone had issues with hidden costs. The FMCSA explains, “Your mover is not permitted to charge you for giving a non-binding estimate.”

At Cousins USA, we provide guaranteed pricing with no hidden fees. We ensure our pricing is clear and upfront from the beginning. You won’t be surprised or held up by any hidden costs at the end of your move. Our rate of 90% repeat customers is a testament to our fair and honest pricing. “Complete integrity is our promise to every customer,” emphasizes our President, Joseph Pollio.

How am I Covered for Damaged or Lost Items During a Local Move in Fort Lauderdale?

The moving industry refers to the coverage of your items during the move as “Valuation”. The government requires movers to provide a minimum coverage of 60 cents per pound per item. This will be offered to you as Limited Liability Coverage. If you want added protection, you can be fully covered with Full Value Protection Coverage for an extra fee. You should also speak to your mover about Items of Extraordinary Value, which are items valued at over $100 per pound and need to be declared during your move. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration states, “Your mover is responsible for the value of the goods you asked them to transport.”

At Cousins USA, we understand the importance of protecting your belongings during a local move in Fort Lauderdale. That’s why we offer comprehensive coverage options to ensure peace of mind throughout the moving process. Our knowledgeable team can provide detailed information about these coverage options, guiding you to choose the one that best suits your needs and budget. Additionally, you can find more detailed information about moving valuation on our Moving Valuation Guide, which is designed to help you make informed decisions about protecting your items during the move. “Ensuring that our customers have the right coverage for their belongings is a top priority for us,” emphasizes our President, Joseph Pollio.

Cousins USA

Are Local Movers in Fort Lauderdale Able to Fit My Schedule?

While you can work with the move manager to find the best date that works for you, not all moving dates are guaranteed. There are busy seasons at points in the year that result in moving companies filling up their calendar fast, especially in the Summer, including June, July, and August, so be sure to get in touch right away to avoid missing your ideal moving date. Move.org advises, “Be sure to book your company about six weeks before moving day. If you’re moving from a smaller space, you might be able to book closer to moving day, but sooner is better.”

At Cousins USA, we pride ourselves on our ability to accommodate your moving needs promptly and efficiently, especially in Fort Lauderdale. With a full crew and a fleet of trucks at our disposal, we’re equipped to handle moves of any size. Whether you have a specific moving date in mind or are still finalizing your plans, our team is ready to assist you. Simply reach out to us and provide us with the date range you’re considering, and we’ll work with you to ensure a seamless moving experience. “Our goal is to make the moving process as smooth and stress-free as possible for our customers,” affirms our President, Joseph Pollio.
