    5 Tips for Selecting the Right Mover

    As you know moving is one of the most stressful life events and over 10% of the population moves each year. Eliminate the stress and worry of moving by hiring a great moving company that you can trust. The more thought you put into hiring the right moving company, the better your move will be!

    Here are 5 tips for choosing a great moving company:

    1. Ask Around. Usually, the best way to get honest recommendations is from your friends, family, and coworkers. Ask around and find out from those who have just moved how their experience was. It is also a very good idea to do some of your own investigating and read the online reviews and contact the Better Business Bureau to inquire about a moving company’s reputation.
    2. Get it in writing. A good mover will give you a written estimate up front that will show you how much you will be spending on your move. Don’t be afraid to shop around! You want to make sure you are getting the best mover for the best price. Therefore you should try to get a written estimate from at least three moving companies, so you can compare.
    3. Beware of red flags. Oftentimes customers do not see red flags or they refuse to acknowledge them. If a mover requires you to put down a large deposit upfront, you should immediately pause and reconsider your moving company.
    4. Ask questions. A good moving company will be upfront and transparent about all of its qualifications and services. Don’t be afraid to get all of your questions answered! Ensure that your moving company is licensed and insured. Also, make sure that your company specializes in the specific type of move you will be making before you make any commitments.
    5. Trust your intuition. After all of your research is complete the last step is to just go with your gut! You will want to pay attention to the feeling you get when interacting with your moving company. Oftentimes our intuition can provide us with much-needed guidance if we listen to it.
