When you are in the process of moving, you can
become overwhelmed quite easily. Moving to a new home in a new neighborhood can be stressful. You may have to find new schools for your kids, new doctors, and new veterinarians if you have pets. Then there is the process of meeting the neighbors! It’s helpful if you can find ways to take the stress out of the actual process of moving.
Once you hire a great moving company, you can check that stressful item off of your list. But for some, finding a reputable moving company can be daunting. How do you know where to begin? It’s helpful to know what to look for in a moving company and where you
can go for help.

time and frustration of having to make several calls yourself.
Ask a Realtor
If you are working with a realtor, chances are she may be able to recommend a great moving company. Ask her for recommendations. If you are not working with a realtor, you probably know at least one you can ask. If not, call a local real estate agency and ask for
recommendations. When you are in the process of getting quotes, make sure you are
clear with your mover about your needs and your budget. Carefully review the clauses regarding damages and what the moving company will do if something is damaged inadvertently during the move. Review the quotes to compare the services provided by each of the moving companies. Some may include packing your belongings and some may only move your packed belongings and furniture.
What to do Next
Once the movers begin contacting you, ask them questions before you sign any paperwork. Find out how long they have been in business and you can even ask for references. Quality moving companies will not balk at having to provide great references (if they have them!).
Check out the mover’s website and social media pages like Facebook or Twitter. See what other people might be saying about the company.
Set up appointments for the movers to come out to your house. Do not take a quote
per cubic feet or some other arbitrary quote. Make sure the moving company sees what
they are dealing with in person. If they are not willing to come out to your home, move down your list to the next mover.
Ask whether they will provide boxes for your move. Some companies may provide boxes for you otherwise you have to go out and procure them on your own.
Do your homework and spend ample time researching moving companies before you sign on the dotted line. Finding reputable moving companies can take time but it is worth it in the end.
