Why Hire a Moving Company: An Interview with Michael Ketterer of Pair of Guys Movers

By Michael Ketterer

Please describe a little bit about your company and its foundation.

Pair Of Guys Movers was founded on several basic principles. Our goals included designing a stress-free moving experience for our clients which was also affordable. We sought to create a completely transparent pricing plan without the surprise of hidden fees typically found in the moving industry, and to meet the increasing demand for quality moving services in Georgia. Years later, we are still accomplishing those goals on a daily basis.

Located in Cumming, we have the ability and resources to transfer household goods and business furnishings all over the state of Georgia. Our mission is to exceed our clients expectations with the quality of service we provide. We are licensed and insured (MCA# 219184) and have a carefully selected staff of professional movers and packers that ensure each and every move is done right.

Our goal continues to be the leading provider of quality moving services and to offer unbeatable value when it comes to moving services. We're not part of any franchise, which means we don't have the junk fees and hidden charges commonly found elsewhere.

What are some of the various moving services you offer?

Moving from one residence to another both locally and statewide
Storage unit moving
Business/Corporate relocation
Loading/Unloading rental trucks
Clearing out rooms to be remodeled
College student moves
Senior citizen moves

What are some of the advantages that come along with hiring a moving company?

By using professional movers you'll save time, money, and your back. Gone are the days of choosing between the movers with the lowest rates and the movers with the best service record and most professional staff. With Pair Of Guys Movers, you get it all.

What privileges do moving companies have that I may not?

Often moving companies have established bonds with storage units and realtors, which may equate to cost savings for a client utilizing both service providers. Moving companies also have access to professional grade equipment such as heavy duty blankets for protection, dollies, and stretch wrap which are not commonly available to the public.

Is it sometimes more affordable to utilize the services of a moving company?

In most situations it is. Friends will bail, other folks work full time, and who would want to give up a weekend hauling other people's items? Consider the cost of the truck you'll rent, fuel, insurance, and let's not forget the tools to do the job like handtrucks and the heap of protective materials and isolation straps required to keep items secure and free of damage. No amount of free pizza and soda for friends could provide as smooth a moving experience as professional movers.

How does hiring a moving company help me save time?

We realize first and foremost that your time is valuable. We handle the heavy lifting so you can focus on your day to day operations and the other things that are important to you.

Will I have insurance on all my belongings?

All legally operating and licensed moving companies will have coverage available for your belongings. Depreciated value coverage is included free. Should you opt for replacement value coverage, the extra charge is based on the number of rooms being moved. The latter offers peace of mind in the event your homeowner insurance isn't applicable in this area.

Any other advice about why homeowners should hire a professional for their move?

Check out your prospective company thoroughly. If you come across an offer that seems "too good to be true", it most often is. Ask about hidden charges such as arrival fees, extra charges for fuel, usage of the moving truck, local driving, commuting to and from the moving project, multiple destinations, disassembly/reassembly, stretchwraping, long walks, appliances, and usage of stairs. Many operations use small delivery vans, then charge extra to "upgrade" to an appropriately sized large moving truck. These are just a few of the things that you'll want to ask your movers. Check online reviews like Kudzu.com, where we received the Excellence Of Service award for 2013.

Lastly, go with your instinct. Anyone who answers with "hello" or "movers", or doesn't sound professional most likely won't be down the road.
