The movers have packed up furniture, they’ve closed the van doors and are leaving with everything you possess, then your stomach turns, and for a moment, you think will you never see your belongings again. Most people have had positive experiences with a moving company, but some have not. It only takes one experience to sour your opinion with a moving service to make you understand how important it is to do everything you to make sure your belongings are in trustworthy hands. So, how do you choose a good and reliable company?
Most have websites that list what they provide, a service history, locations they will travel to, and approximately how much it will cost. This is a good starting point to get information and to begin compiling a list of companies. Also, many firms will list all their contact information, such as e-mail addresses, which will permit you to ask questions, and be provided with a response.
Ask around. Most people in your life will have moved at least once in their life, so ask family, friends or colleagues if they know a company, or what companies to avoid. Both are invaluable when finding a moving firm.
Get in touch with the Better Business Bureau. Check to see if any of the firms on your list have had any complaints against them and how they were resolved. It’s very rare that a moving company will not have any unhappy clients, the key is to make sure that if there were complaints, the customer was happy with the end result. Read carefully the report, and if you’re thinking of hiring a firm that has a grievance against them, ask the firm about this case and how it was sorted out. Depending on the actual complaint, you may not was to choose that company.
