How to Choose the Right Moving Company

The idea of moving all of your belongings from one place to another in a timely manner can be stressful. You don’t want things to break, you want it to be done on time, you want it to be affordable, and you want your movers to be professional. It’s a lot to consider, and the thought of choosing a reliable moving company can feel completely overwhelming when you are already busy thinking about the move itself.

We have created a checklist of everything you should consider when choosing a moving company. Following this list will ensure that you are choosing someone reliable, safe, and excellent.

Verify Their Credentials and Commitment to Safety

Do the movers that you are looking into have credentials proving that they are a trustworthy business? Checking for certain credentials from organizations like the Better Business Bureau and Angie’s List can ensure that the company you are working with is a quality business.

Additionally, it’s important to check your potential moving company’s policies on hiring and safety. When you essentially have strangers entering your home and are trusting them with your precious items, you want to be sure that they are trustworthy and safe. Ask what the company’s hiring qualifications are and see if they are committed to safety.

At Firefighting’s Finest Moving and Storage, we are not only accredited by the Better Business Bureau and Angie’s List, we also have a strong commitment to safety by the thorough vetting of all our potential hires. This ensures that every mover you come in contact with through our company is trustworthy.

Check Their Reviews

Customer review apps like Yelp and Yellow Pages are great tools for you to use when searching for a moving company. Use these apps as a guide—the star rating is a great indicator of what you can expect.

Beyond that, read the reviews that previous customers have written about the company. Taking the time to understand their praises and frustrations can be the deciding factor in what company you choose—the company that you thought was the most affordable could also have poor reviews.
