How to Choose a Moving Company

Featured Image-41

Don’t be intimidated by stories of lost furniture, broken precious heirlooms, mysterious storage units nowhere near point A or B – even companies ghosting clients. Here are the 3 things you must do before choosing your moving company:

1. Screen, Screen, Screen!

Do your homework before trusting a complete stranger to handle the treasured armoire you inherited from your grandmother. Screen every mover for quality and trustworthiness. Take personal recommendations, and look them all up on sites like Yelp, Google, Facebook, and the Better Business Bureau. If they have any negative reviews or major complaints, move on.

2. Get an Estimate in Writing

To avoid any discrepancies before the final bill arrives, get an accurate quote in writing. For accuracy, be honest, and tell them how many rooms you have and the square feet of your home. If you’re a minimalist, tell them. If you’re a packrat, tell them. For assurance, get the estimate in writing. Sometimes, moving companies offer attractive, low quotes and then silently charge you separately for other nominal services. However, if you get everything in writing, you’ll be able to see the fine print and compare apples-to-apples when deciding among other companies.

3. Check the Insurance Policies

Insurance is what will allow you to file a claim against the moving company if something is lost, damaged, or stolen. Insurance coverage is paramount – so make sure that you check the policies!

If you use the 3 tips above, you’ll mitigate many issues that could arise during the moving process. You have enough going on otherwise, so take this added stress off your plate.
