These questions should help you further pare down the potential companies. For example, if you live in a small home, but the company exclusively offers very large trucks, they’re probably not the right choice for you. Likewise, if you have quite a few expensive pieces of art but the company’s insurance is lackluster, it won’t save you much stress to hire them.
If you’ve found a company that seems like a good fit, take the time to research them. Look into past customers’ experiences, and make sure that the company has a healthy crop of testimonials that they can offer up upon request. If you find consistent issues coming up in reviews, don’t be afraid to ask the company about them—it’s never too late to look for another service.
Also, try to work with a company that will offer you a free quote. Of course, as we’ve already discussed, there are quite a few specifics that go into the rate for a moving team, but a company should be able to offer you a range quite easily. If they’re reluctant to do this, it could be a red flag; if the quote seems incredibly low, it might be an indication that the company tacks on extra fees later in the process.
