The Importance of Hiring a Reputable Moving Company

Moving is and always will be one of the most stressful things you can do, but it doesn't have to be. Most people now-a-days do their searching for a good moving company on the internet, and that works, but that is where you are just as likely to run into scammers if you don’t know what you’re searching for. Searching last minute for the right moving company for the job can also lead to disaster and you’ll end up spending more many then you initially anticipated. Here are some important factors to consider when you hire a moving company:

It’s always important to know how long a moving service has been actively serving the community. If you’re searching online directories or even using a phone book, it’s just good to know how long they have been around.

Free In-home Consultation
Many people who move using a non-reputable moving company becomes aggravated when they find out that their actual moving costs are more than they had actually been quoted over the phone. This is because there were items on the list of things that needed to be moved that the mover had failed to mention. This can be avoided if the company offers a free in-home consultation.

Moving Truck
When the company comes over to make their free in-home consultation, make sure that their brand is clearly labeled on their moving truck. This may seem like a minor, cosmetic matter, but many scammers will show up to the job with a truck that’s poorly labeled or no label at all. This is a good indication that you may have a scammer at your door.

If you know anyone who has used their services in the past, don’t hesitate to give them a call. If the company has been around for quite some time, somebody, somewhere will have said something about them. There are many websites out there to use for references like the Better Business Bureau or check out their reviews on Google local.

It’s always important to make sure that you give yourself enough time for the move. If you get your quote on the day before the big move and that was your only option, then you may be stuck with that particular cost. Also make sure that you understand your quote, some companies charge for packing materials and crates while others include them in the moving fee.
