Reviews and Track Records
First thing’s first you need to start reading reviews and references online. As there are a lot of companies out there, scamming ones are amongst them and they want your business. When looking at reviews, you need to look for the fees, experience with fragile items, and personal approach.
You don’t want to find out that the company you hired are careless during the move and turn the process into a nightmare.
Always consider a good track record of the companies, too. You need to know the successful long-term businesses and find out why they’re still alive and kicking many years after. These companies are the best ones to trust.
Licenses, Customer Services, and Transparent Fees
Other things to look for are the licenses of moving companies, insurance, and the fees and how they’re calculated.
Every company can get a truck and hire people to carry your items at a lower rate than anyone else. However without insurance and licensing, they might damage your items, hurt themselves and hold you liable or even steal something.
Always research who you let near your personal items and in your home. Note that if you need an interstate company, they need to have the U.S Department of Transportation license. You can find a full list of certified moving companies in the US from the American Moving and Storage Association.
Another thing to look out for is good customer service and transparent fees. If the moving company is not careful or friendly and they don’t care about your belongings, it’s not worth it even if they are the best one out there.
When looking at the fees, the companies must give you an estimate based on the number of movers and hours. Also the cost must include extra packing materials or larger items, so be careful with the pricing. You don’t want to go overboard with your budget only for movers.
Pricing and Personal Approach
Again, we are talking about the pricing and personal approach when it comes to choosing movers. Always cross-reference the prices, reviews and moving plans available. Strive to find the ones with good reviews and lower prices. Work with your budget and don’t overstep it so you can have enough finance for the rest of your move.
Last but not least, talk to your movers about your needs and what your specific case needs at the time. If you need bigger trucks, extra packing materials, specific timeframes, or anything else, communicate it.
We hope that your moving goes smoothly and you end up happily in your new home. If you want professional movers to help you, give our H2H team a call. Happy moving!
