When it comes to finding the right moving company, doing a little research is worth it. By shopping around, you can spot the signs of a bad mover to avoid scams and find a reliable mover that fulfills your needs and fits your budget.
- Getting recommendations from friends, colleagues, and realtors is the best way to start your research process.
- Do a brief background check on the list of recommended movers.
- Only deal with licensed companies.
- Enquire about their worker’s compensation insurance and what cover they provide for you.
- Ask for some references, and call to verify them.
Narrow Down Your List
- Once you have three or four moving companies from which to choose, get clear on exactly what is and is not included in their quotations. Beware of unpleasant hidden costs.
- Choose whether you want:
- full service: the moving company packs, unpacks, and moves everything, or
- self-service: you pack and unpack, and the movers only move it.
- When a consultant comes to your home to give you an estimate, make sure that he or she thoroughly analyses your possessions. It is impossible to get an accurate quotation from a cursory glance. Be prepared to show the estimator everything – from the contents of your closets to your yard, basement, and attic.
- Get a written quotation and find out whether it is binding or not.
- Select your moving company,
- Confirm the dates and details of your move,
- Get a copy of the movers’ inventory list, and
- Get a number so that you can stay in touch with them on moving day.
