Tips for Selecting A Moving Company
— Choose the kind of moving company you need, such as a relocation service, interstate movers, local mover, pack-and-load services, junk removal, or driving only.
— Ask your friends and neighbors who have moved recently for their recommendation. A trusted word-of-mouth referral is a great way to ensure the movers will do a solid job for you.
— Ask for references, and check the companies online reviews. Reach out to the references if you have concerns.
— Determine whether or not you would like the moving company to pack and what other services you may need from them. Ensure that the moving company is aware of everything you require.
— Know the difference between binding and non-binding contracts. With a binding estimate, you know in advance what your move will cost. However, it also means you can’t add anything extra that you might have left off during the estimate. With a more open-ended non-binding estimate, there is no limit on what you can request from the movers.
— Inform the moving company of any unusual situations, such as access or parking needs. If the mover does not know about potential issues in advance, additional charges could apply.
— Verify that the moving company you select is licensed and insured. You can ask for proof of this information, and look it up online.
