Moving soon? Regardless if you’re moving across town or to another state, it’s important to take the right steps up front before you hire a moving company near you.
Step 1: Know whether you need to hire a short distance or long distance mover. Many companies consider over 100 miles a long-distance move. Also consider if you need help packing and unpacking, need storage, and need other additional services.
Step 2: Do you research. Interview several movers. Learn as much as you can about the history of the companies you are considering including reading reviews and complaints.
Step 3: Ask the right questions. Ask about rates and estimates, if the company uses subcontractors, if there are additional fees and when they apply, if there will be transfers, about their insurance, and about packing and storage services. Request referrals.
