Hiring A Moving Company

If you’re getting ready to move, be thorough when hiring a moving company!

Here’s some advice on how to choose a reliable moving company.

Be aware of dishonest moving companies who are waiting to take advantage of you. Every year the complaints roll in. The Better Business Bureau receives thousands of complaints against movers every year. Take every precaution to keep your items safe. It’s all about finding a reputable moving company. There are a few resources available.

Check the moving companies’ reputation with the Better Business Bureau.

If you are moving out of state, make sure the moving company is certified with the American Movers and Storage Association. You can check to verify that on the association’s website. Those who are certified have passed background screening with government authorities at the state and federal level.

Searching for a better price is good, but do your homework.

Choosing the best time to move can help save money. Off-season is usually anything but June or July and any time either than the first and last of the month. If at all possible, try to book your move during the week or mid month.

Make sure you get three written in-home estimates. Not all price quotes online are legitimate or guaranteed. You may want to consider full value protection. It may cost a few dollars more up front, but the minimum coverage required is 60 cents per pound and that would not cover the replacement cost of a flat screen TV if it was damaged.
