Q1. Where do you start looking for a Mover?
jkmoving Talk to your Realtor first. Friends and neighbors are also great resources.
movingpro Definitely. Friends, family & coworkers are always the best bet IF they’ve moved recently. If not then it’s time for review sites.
movingpro But, of course, review sites should be read cautiously. Not everything you read is true.
rebachan Friends, family & coworkers who have moved in the last 6 months are a good place to start on your initial search for a mover.
Q2. How can you be sure the company you’re moving with is credible?
movingpro Most important: they are licensed & insured. After that, look at client reviews, BBB rating, and awards.
Q3. Should you visit your moving company’s facilities? Why or why not?
movingpro Interesting question! I think I’d say it can help you get a feel for the company, but it is not necessary.
jkmoving We would recommend visiting the facilities. Get a chance to meet the crew, see the trucks and training facilities
rebachan YES! The condition of a mover’s facilities is very telling, even if you aren’t using their warehouse/storage.
rebachan You want to see neat, organized, well-maintained warehouse, fleet, offices, etc. “Seeing is believing”
Q4. Open question, any additional words of advice for people #moving when selecting their mover?
rebachan Get three in-home estimates. Ask for references from each mover. Ask if they offer any free or discounted boxes
jkmoving Give yourself as much time as you can. You’ll want it to compare estimates and companies.
movingpro (1/3) A4. So many answers 4 this question! Ask how they will customize services to fix your exact needs.
movingpro (2/3) A4. Ask how many years they’ve been in business. Years of experience are proof that clients keep coming back & not a scam.
movingpro (3/3) A4. Ask about green practices and how they give back to community if that’s important to you.
