Planning a move to Texas? Moving consultants – especially Certified Moving Consultants (CMCs) – can help with every step of the moving process. Your CMC will develop a moving timeline, recommend the amount of manpower needed for the move, and evaluate your assets to decide how much packing supplies will be needed and more.
As part of our effort to help make moving easier, TXU Energy has these tips for how to find a Certified Moving Consultant:
Find your consultant.
To find a Certified Moving Consultant, first visit the American Moving & Storage Association (AMSA). This non-profit organization was established in 1936 to help improve the moving and storage industry. All member consultants have passed a certification exam. On their Web site, you can browse through the list of qualified consultants.
After you've made contact with the consultant of your choice, you can meet in person to discuss your move. If you’ve got the time, it might even make sense to meet with at least two moving consultants to make sure there’s a point of comparison.
Ask for credentials.
For your peace of mind, it’s important to ask for a CMC's credentials. A fully certified consultant shouldn't mind showing his or her certification. This proves that the CMC is in good standing with AMSA and is knowledgeable enough to pass the certification exam. More importantly, it assures you that your consultant will be held accountable to the CMC Code of Ethics and Professional Practices.
Check off your list.
Not only will your CMC coordinate your move, but they are also trained to look for the best deals and biggest savings for things like a home cleaning service, cable TV, Internet and other services.
Know the benefits of a CMC.
A CMC helps make your move an easy transition. They are trained to look for savings and plan out everything to the very last detail. From labeling your boxes to disposing of unwanted goods in an environmentally friendly manner, a CMC will handle it all. You can also count on your belongings getting to your new home in one piece. For big or small moves, Certified Moving Consultants make moving easy.
And whether or not you end up hiring a CMC, you’re going to need to get the electricity in your new home set up. For that, sign up with TXU Energy, the #1 electricity provider in Texas. With straightforward pricing and energy-saving tools, you can choose what's right for you and your new home.
