Hiring reliable movers 101
Have you ever moved before? If you have no experience, reading these tips will be essential for avoiding moving scams and moving troubles. Moving helpers will make your move an exciting adventure to remember, but only if you hire reliable movers. When searching for movers, you should:
- Use reliable resources – The more reliable resource you use, the better chances that you’ll hire a quality and reputable moving company.
- Do a thorough background check of all companies – Making sure you avoid moving scams is absolutely an essential thing to do.
- Compare companies – Pick the most affordable moving company instead of the cheapest one.
What resources to use?
- Friends and family – These are the people you trust the most. Hence, if some of them moved recently, they’ll be able to suggest a moving company you should hire.
- Colleagues and acquaintances – Although not as reliable as friends and family, they still can recommend some quality and reliable moving company.
- Other resources – Such as ads, the internet etc. These are least reliable resources, but you need to have at least 5-10 companies on your list, so you should use all resources you can.
How to check the reliability of moving companies?
- Check the licensure – If some company doesn’t have proper licenses to do the job, walk away.
- Read the reviews – Find out how satisfied their previous customers were or if there are some accusations of a moving fraud.
- How do they answer the phone – If they don’t mention a company name, there’s something strange, and you should avoid hiring them.
- Do they own the equipment and vehicles or rent them – The reputable and reliable movers will always have their own moving equipment.
Comparing moving companies
Get moving quotes – and make sure you have a list of moving services you will be provided with at that price.
- Compare the quality of moving assistance – Hire only the top quality movers. If you can’t make a decision because there are two or more companies with similar prices, pick the one you consider to offer more quality services, even if you’ll pay a few dollars more.
- Don’t hire the cheapest moving companies – Pick a moving company offering the most affordable price. This could be the company with the lowest price, but make sure to check the quality and volume of moving services first, and only after that compare prices.
