Leaving your old home and life may be nerve-raking. Many changes may occur. To decrease the possible stress moving can bring, you must find a good moving company. Have moving services that will really take care of your possessions so that you can face a great new start.

So what should you do to find the best moving services you can get? Do reputation research.

You Can Start Online
Unswerving moving companies have good service advertisements available through the internet. With just a few clicks of your mouse, you can find a good list of your potential moving serve providers. Make sure you take note of their address and contact numbers.

If you have a list, find good and bad customer reviews that are also available online.

Ask friends, relatives, and acquaintances that has moving experiences for local moving companies. Know which have great and which have disappointing services.

Do More Research
With a shorter list of potential movers, do an extensive reputation research.

Check the Better Business Bureau (BBB) for complaints filed against your potential moving service provider. Know if problems are resolved quickly or are left pending.

Ask the US Department of Tourism if your choices are registered and updated.

After all the research, there may still be more choices in your list, but here are some CAUTIONS:

  • No contact information available online
  • The receptionist does not answer the phone with the company name, and worse, a machine answers your call.
  • Cash and pricey initial payments and deposits.
  • Claim that insurance will take care of your properties.
  • No pre-movement inspection done.
  • The moving truck does not carry the company’s name.

You may have done every reputation check, but you must always trust your gut feeling. Your instincts may dictate doubt to a certain moving company’s offer, so do not choose that. These reputation checks mentioned are only guides. It is still up to your decision, if a moving company suits your needs.
