Learn What to Look for When Choosing a Moving Company

August 30, 2017

If you have ever had to make a choice among moving companies for a local or long distance move, you know the decision is not always easy. Whether you have had to hire a moving company in the past or this will be your first time, here are some tips and basic steps to make the decision a little easier for you.

Don't fall victim to moving scams! Watch out for these indicators when evaluating moving companies: Moving companies that ask for cash deposits before they begin moving your items is a definite red flag. Do your research and check for licensing and insurance info on the companies' site.

Starting off: Word of mouth can be a great asset in selecting moving companies. Ask your friends if they have had positive experiences with any local moving companies.

Obtaining price estimates:
Reputable moving companies will want to visit your home or facility in order to provide an accurate estimate, so be sure to schedule at least two visits. Beware of quotes given over the phone or internet, as it is difficult to ensure accurate pricing without a face-to-face meeting.


Names and reputations set moving companies apart:
It can be tempting to choose a mover that promises to offer the lowest price. But when you are considering something as important as moving your possessions, as well as the significant investment involved in moving, you are far better off selecting from one of the "brand name" moving companies. Moving is an area where experience counts and reputation is well-earned, because taking a chance with the wrong moving companies could be costly in more ways than one.


The Importance of timing:
Make arrangements for your move well in advance – at least four to six weeks before the moving date. If at all possible, try not to move when everyone else wants to move. Throughout the year, the end of the month is a busy time for movers, because of the expiration of leases and preferred closing dates. The summer months – May to mid-September, when children are out of school, are "peak season" for movers.
