    Choosing a Reliable Storage & Moving Company

    Are you getting ready to relocate? If so, one of the many decisions that you’re going to have to make in the coming weeks or months is how to choose the best and most reliable storage and moving company. But with so many companies to choose from, how do you make a decision? Here at Carey, we have compiled a list of helpful hints to assist you in your decision.

    How to Locate a Storage & Moving Company

    • Start locally – search for companies in your town, city, or area. Doing so will avoid the unfortunate possibility of doing business with an unethical moving company that operates solely over the internet. Plus, if you work with a company that has a reputation within your community, chances are you will be able to verify the authenticity of their business more easily.
    • Verify credentials and contact info – all legitimate moving companies should have proper licensing and contact information. Check out the Better Business Bureau and make sure that your potential moving company is accredited.
    • Get three move estimates – every final estimate should be conducted in person. Beware of over-the-phone or email-only estimates. This may be a sign of a scam. Also be wary of unusually low estimates.
    • Avoid large deposit requirements – the majority of moving companies won’t ask for a payment until after your belongings have been delivered. Some require a small deposit of around 20%.
    • Read reviews – this is the best way to judge the authenticity and reliability of a moving company. Many companies will list reviews on their website, or you can look on google, facebook, or yelp.

    We hope that these tips will help you make your decision! And for all of your relocation needs in and around the Carolinas and Tennessee, call Carey – your local reliable storage and moving company.
