Tips For Choosing A Local Moving Company

By

man lifting boxAs most homeowners can attest, moving can be a complicated process, but that doesn’t mean you have to let it stress you out. Set aside some time for yourself to do some research to prevent any moving scams and decrease the stress that comes with a local move. A-Z Express Movers has put together a few tips to help prevent a stressful move!

  • As you begin looking for a moving company, talk to your friends and see who they have used. A respected company is going to have happy customers who are willing to share their experience. Look for review websites and the moving company’s social media profiles for more opinions.
  • Speak with a trusted advisor, like a real estate agent or contractor, who work with moving companies on a day to day basis. They can provide you with their professional opinion on the companies you bring to them.
  • For each moving company you are considering, contact each one to get their legal name and ‘doing business as’ name, DOT and MC license numbers and the number of years they’ve been in business. With this information, you can then go to FMCSA resources to ensure that the companies are federally licensed.

Receiving Moving Estimates

A legitimate moving company will provide you with an in-home estimate for your upcoming move. Be sure that you show every room, space or nook and cranny to ensure there are no surprise fees come moving day.

Avoiding Moving Scams

Moving scams happen more often than you think-about 3,000 Americans a year will be scammed by a moving company. Be on the lookout for the following red flags as you make your way through the moving process:

  • Don’t provide a deposit before your belongings are moved
  • Ensure that they have a physical address
  • Check their qualifications with companies like the Better Business Bureau (BBB) or American Moving and Storage Association (AMSA)
