How to choose the best moving company that you are ready to trust with your property during one of the most stressful events in your life? Of course, there are many companies that provide moving services, and you need to choose the one that best suits your criteria.

Analyze moving company review sites

Your first step is an authoritative site with an overview of moving companies. Use the information in the reviews wisely: some of the information will be useless to you, while others will reflect your needs and desire for a stress-free move.

Visit sites with reviews of moving companies. Online reviews and recommendations from friends are the best ways to start choosing the right firm for you. Reviews provide an objective look at a company’s level of service.

If you have oversized items: pianos, exercise equipment, pool tables, and so on, find a transport company with experts who know how to properly handle such things. Typically, companies provide this information on their website, but you can also find this information in reviews.

Check if the moving company really responds to any feedback (good or bad). This is an indicator of whether the company cares about its customers and its reputation.

Explore the websites of moving companies

A respected transport company has its own website. Read everything you find there. Even the way the site itself looks is a testament to how seriously the company takes its business.

Are there landlines and mobile phones, a physical address, and an email address? If there is, then the company is not afraid that its customers will contact it. And this is a good sign.

Visit the company at the address indicated on the website, look at the condition of the vehicles and the general view of the offices. Clean and organized rooms are another good sign.

Does the moving company offer relocation advice, or does it handle the move? The presence of such resources for the client is not only useful but also shows that the company is really interested in its industry.

Does the website of the moving company indicate that the company has accredited training or safety certificates? Check them by contacting the issuing authority or ask your company office if the documents are valid today.

Packing services from transport companies

What packaging services does the company offer?

If this is important to you, ask if they have special packaging materials.

Ask how the moving company will protect especially valuable or oversized items.

Make a list of moving companies

As a result, after a detailed study of sites with reviews of transport companies and reviews, make a list with the names of several moving companies. Let there be few of them, but these will be the very firms to which you could entrust all your property.

Find the perfect balance between quality and price

Determine the cost of services of each moving company by comparing the quality with the price. Remember: cheap movers are not good, and good movers are not cheap! But a high price does not mean that a high-quality transport company will take care of the move. There are a number of factors to consider, from price to reputation to what is included in the service.
