More than ten percent of Americans move to a new home every year. A great deal of those are long distance moves that are taken care of by a moving company. If you have a move planned in the future and will need to hire a company to assist you, be sure to keep the following tips in mind to help ensure you hire the right company and that everything goes smoothly.
- Before you hire a company, check online with the BBB and other review websites to see how well the company has performed for others. Some companies do not have anything listed with the BBB or review websites, but many of the older companies may. If you can’t find reviews, ask the company for references.
- Check the company insurance certificate to make sure the coverage is valid.
- Ask upfront what items will be covered. Most companies will not cover personal items and household goods unless they pack and load everything for you.
Deciding on the right company to hire during a move can be difficult decision to make, but when you take the time to really check the company out and see what they have to offer, you can easily narrow down your list to hire the best company for the job at hand.
