Why Choose Movers and Not Brokers?

Consumers may not be too familiar with the differences between a moving company and a broker, but they actually provide different services altogether.

A moving broker’s job is to find you the type of service you want. The company they work for does not have its own fleet of trucks or movers but looks to third parties in order to find you the right people. The problem is, when you put the two face to face, working directly with a moving company is a lot more convenient, for several reasons:

  • It’s more affordable – with a moving company, you only have to cover the moving costs of the services you choose, such as moving, or other special services. Brokers work on a commission that is usually added to the cost of the service, meaning that you will likely have to pay a bit more, on average, if you choose a brokerage service;
  • You can do your own research – brokers claim they will look for the moving company that best suits your needs, but this isn’t always the case. Brokers have partnerships with a handful of moving companies, and they will recommend the company they know, not necessarily the best company around. On the other hand, you can look into the reputation and services of any moving company yourself, and make an informed decision;
  • Better communication – working with a moving company directly could make the process easier from a communications point of view. You don’t have to contact a broker every time you want to change something, and then hope the broker passes on the information accurately. You can talk directly to the movers, who will help you plan the entire process based on what you need.
