Top 4 Things to Consider When Hiring a Moving Company

Moving is stressful enough without having to worry about whether or not you hired a good moving company. So before you go searching, take a look at our list of top 4 things you should consider.

1. Cost

Make sure you ask what the price covers. Sometimes there are fees and fine print. The last thing you want to do is find out later that you owe the company more money than you thought you did. Make sure they give you accurate quotes, including all overtime charges, etc. How clear the company communicates their pricing with you is a reflection of how careful they will be moving your stuff.

2. Experience

Look at how long the company has been in business. The older the company, the more experience they have in the industry. An older company has learned what does and doesn’t work. Be sure to ask about your specific situation (i.e. have they moved large offices? big families? etc.)

3. Credentials

Check out the company’s website or ask around to see if they are recognized for their quality service. Awards and recommendations say a lot about a company and the quality of their work.

4. Reputation

See what the community has to say about the moving company you are considering. Do they have good online reviews? Look for complaints as well as praise. The moving company you hire should be known for their attention to detail, professionalism, and care. They should treat your possessions with as much respect as you do, wrapping pieces well and measuring doorways ahead of time.
