Finding the right moving company

Choosing the right moving company is crucial for a successful and cost-effective relocation. With numerous companies to consider, finding the ideal one can make all the difference between a smooth moving day and a nightmare.

When dealing with specialty items like pianos, appliances, hot tubs, double door fridges, treadmills, or valuable artwork, it’s important to share a picture with the moving company and inquire about their specific charges. Additionally, don’t forget to ask about their experience in handling these items.

Here are some steps that you can take when evaluating which moving company to go with

Make a detailed list of all the items in your house that you will be moving and give this list to the moving company when sending out moving inquiries. Being upfront with the moving company and make sure they have a detailed list will ensure that they provide a more accurate estimate and they will have no reason to change the price on move day. Also, make sure all communication is via email so you can refer back to previous communication if need be.

Only go with a moving company that has insurance coverage.  No matter how careful the movers can be during a move, the accident does happen even to the best of us. When this happens, it’s always nice to know that the moving company is fully insured, and you can file an insurance claim.

Do your research before making the decision to go with a moving company. Check the moving company reviews on platforms like Facebook, Google, BBB, yelp, Reddit etc. Go with a moving company that has consistently great reviews. Also, beware that some reviews may be fake.
