Moving to Texas or within the Lone Star State? Make it easy on yourself and hire movers to do the work for you. When you hire movers, you not only save time – you get the manpower and tools you need to make the job a snap. Here are a few tips and things to look into when you hire movers.

The Right Tools
Depending on your load, do your research to find out what kind of moving tools each moving company uses. Will you need a flatbed truck or a trailer? Remember, movers are sometimes hired by the hour, so making the move in one trip may be less expensive. Make sure you hire movers that have everything they need to get the job done efficiently.

Packing Options
Many movers charge to pack your stuff for transport using their own boxes and supplies. Or, if you have time, do as much of the packing and organizing as possible to help cut costs. Have your belongings wrapped and boxed before the movers arrive. To avoid confusion later, you can mark the boxes with their new locations, such as "kitchen," "bedroom,” etc.

Good Reputation
Since you want your belongings in one piece when they reach their destination, hire movers with a good reputation. Search for a professional moving company on moving.com or browse local moving company reviews on angieslist.com.

Setting Up
It's a good idea to have the electricity set up and turned on by move-in day so that the movers can safely bring items into your new home.
