Tips For Finding a Moving Company

  1. 1. Tips for Finding a Moving Company
  2. 2. About there are many reasons why someone might move, but it’s important to observe a number of moving tips to ensure the process goes smoothly. Moving can be a stressful endeavor, but choosing the right moving company doesn’t have to be. By following a few basic rules and taking a few precautions.
  3. 3. Friends and Family The first people to ask about moving companies should always be friends and relatives. You can be certain to get unbiased, honest assessments this way. If somebody you know recently used a moving company, ask about his or her experience.
  4. 4. Real Estate Agents Not everyone thinks to seek out local real estate agents for advice on moving companies, but they are a wealth of information. They make a living helping people relocate, and they often have the inside scoop on what movers are certified.
  5. 5. Better Business Bureau The BBB is often considered the gold standard for businesses. If a company is not accredited with the BBB, that does not mean the institution is disreputable. However, an accreditation does provide an extra vote of confidence in the business’s reliability.
  6. 6. Survey Sites Check everything from Yelp to Angie’s List to gauge what people are saying about the moving company. If possible, find multiple reviews of a company. That eliminates one dissatisfied (or satisfied) customer from swaying your decision. Also keep in mind that unhappy customers are always more vocal.
  7. 7. Insurance A reputable moving company will be fully licensed and insured. Ask about your insurance options with your moving company, and make sure you’re covered for loss or damage during the move.
  8. 8. Investigate The Company’s Background One of the most important moving tips is to investigate the company’s background as thoroughly as possible. The best way to do this is to request the company’s Department of Transportation (DOT) license number, which is required for any motor carrier.
  9. 9. Home Moving Estimates Moving companies that are willing to come out for an in-home estimate should be able to provide a more accurate quote for the move. Starting from an accurate quote can eliminate unexpected costs at the end.
  10. 10. Business and Employee Longevity Check into how long a moving company has been in business. The greater its longevity, the better the chance of it being professional and honest. Also look into the average tenure of its employees.
