How to Find a Reputable Moving Company

So the big day is quickly approaching, no not your wedding (sorry bachelorettes), the other big day – the day of your move! Moving is an exciting process, but it can also be stressful if you aren’t sure how to choose between moving companies. Before you make a choice, here are 4 great steps to finding a reputable moving company:

  1. Get Recommendations

Have your friends or family used a reputable company on their last move? Even if they had a less than stellar experience with their last move, this is still valuable information. Knowing who to steer clear from puts you one step closer to finding a great company. The people you trust will always shoot you straight so ask them for a moving company recommendation!

  1. Check Reviews

The Internet is the next best thing to friends and family when it comes to checking up on a company. If they have a Facebook or Yelp page for their business check to see what people are saying!

  1. Ask the right questions

The moving industry is saturated with phonies and people posing as movie companies simply because they have a hand truck and a dolly. It’s easy to tell the difference between the real deal and an imposter; just simply ask them about their insurance, DOT number, and if they are a member of the Better Business Bureau.

  1. Compare price

Of course price is also a big factor when it comes to selecting a moving service. Once you’ve narrowed down the list using recommendations, reviews, and the right questions, you can now begin to get quotes from the lucky remaining moving companies!
