Moving is a hassle, even under the best of circumstances. You want to take the time to find the right mover with plenty of experience and great credentials.
Licensed movers offer basic insurance, but it is a good idea to buy replacement coverage for valuables. Be wary of movers who don’t offer more insurance. Don’t just hire the first company you call.
Get recommendations, look for reviews online and research complaints.
Interview the movers with questions like: How long have you been in business? Are you accredited? Are you licensed and insured? Don’t settle for estimates over the phone. Make sure your mover comes over for the estimate. They can identify things that may lead to higher charges, such as parking restrictions, steep stairs and low clearances.
If the moving estimate sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Also, be wary of movers with bad reviews and complaints. You can save time and money by researching the best movers.
