Moving to Denver is increasingly popular, and the Mile High City added more than 13,000 residents last year. In fact, Colorado has the eighth fastest growth rate in the country. Reasons people move to Colorado include the weather, proximity to outdoor recreation, active lifestyle, healthy work-life balance and available jobs.
Generally, it's more expensive to move to Denver during the summer because that's a popular time to move. To save money, you can move in the winter, but you'll face unpredictable weather like snow, ice and frigid temperatures.
When choosing a moving company, the first thing to consider is whether your move is local or out of state. If it's the latter, you'll want to find a moving company that is licensed for moves across state lines. For example, Purple Heart Moving Group, Colonial Van Lines and Open Road Moving are all good options for out-of-state movers.
To be sure you're getting the most accurate quote and reliable service, consider following these best practices before hiring movers:
Understand what the company's policy is for damaged or lost items.
Ask for a run-down of extra fees. You may pay more if you have multiple levels in your current or new home, or if fragile items need special handling.
Ask for a walk-through of your current home so the company representative can see what you have.
Be specific about your inventory. For example, if you're moving a dining room table, indicate the size, dimensions, weight and if it can be taken apart.
