The 3 Most Important Things to Look for When Deciding on a Moving Company

Last updated 7 years ago

Moving is never an easy task. Packing your life into boxes is difficult enough, not to mention finding the right moving company to transport them. The concerns are endless: who is touching my stuff? Will they break or scratch anything?  How are my things packed into the truck? Before you choose from the many moving companies available, here are a few things to consider:

1. Local VS Long Distance

           Whether you are moving 300 or 3,000 miles away, you need to find a moving companythat suits your needs. Long distance moving requires more work than moving to a neighboring state. Find a company whose movers are fully trained in handling household goods; this will help minimize the risk of damage. Long distance also usually means moving a car. Consider moving companies that provide auto transportation services. Auto transporters will often pick up your vehicle from your home and deliver it to your end destination.

2.  Quality Service


The safety of your things is non negotiable. Distance aside, it is important to find moving men who will safely and properly transport your valuables. Find movers who are licensed and regulated; check with your local Better Business Bureau or Department of Transportation for an accurate listing. When moving larger items such as vehicles, it’s always a good idea to get movers insurance in the event of an oil spill or windshield chip.

  3. Products and Services

With your moving expenses already rising, the last thing you want is to spend even more money on packing materials. Many long distance moving companies supply their own packing material. Men On The Move not only uses the best packing materials available, but also provides custom crates for glass and other breakables.

 What if you can’t move everything at once? Whether you are going to college, moving to a smaller apartment, or simply have too much clutter, consider the option of self storage. Many moving companies couple as storage facilities. Men On The Move offers both self storage and vault storage options for even your most precious keepsakes.
