When hiring people to transport your belongings, of course you want them to be trustworthy. Moving is overwhelming as it is, so employing a bad moving company can be a nightmare. Hiring a trustworthy moving company takes some work, so here are some tips on how to choose one you can trust with your personal belongings and protect your wallet as well.
Make Some Calls
Call several different moving companies in your area that seem reputable. Ask questions about their services and prices. If they are helpful in answering all of your questions and you feel comfortable with them on the phone, then you can consider them one of your potential movers.
Get an Estimate
Moving estimates are tricky because they always vary depending on the extent of the job. If you have several rooms’ worth of furniture and belongings, the moving men will charge more based on weight. When you have narrowed your choices down to a couple different companies, have them all come over separately and give an estimate. If it seems inexpensive, be wary of future fees. If the price is too high, choose another company. Either way, have them give you a signed written estimate.
It is easy to tell when a moving company is well-established. If they have been around for years, have great online reviews, and stable prices, they are probably a good company. Ask questions about their equipment, the history of the company, and employee training. Choose the moving company that can answer all your questions, has plenty of resources, and has a substantial client base.
Know Your Stuff
When you choose your moving company, make sure you know what your insurance will cover if any of your items are lost or damaged. Know the extent of their services and fees in case anything goes wrong. Do not commit until you know everything you are committing to.
