How to choose the right Moving Company for your move - Avoid Moving Scams, Ask the right questions.

Choosing the right Moving Company can be pretty difficult. You are going to put all of your belongings into the hands of a complete stranger. How do you know who to trust? Here is a list of what you need to ask your moving company before you hire them!

Ask if the moving companies crews are background checked and if they can send you a copy of the standards.

If a moving company cannot provide you with a copy of the background check standards, then they shouldn't be trusted. If they do not have standards in place, then the chances are that they do not background check any of their crews.

Ask your moving company if they hire temporary labor. We all know that it’s busy in the summertime, but that is no excuse for hiring temporary labor that isn't qualified to handle your items!

Ask your moving company about their coverage options. If they do not offer you coverage for your items while they are handling your items, do not choose them to move your items. A reputable moving company should be able to at least offer you the option of purchasing coverage.

Ask the moving company how long they have been in business. There are a lot of moving scams out there! Do not trust just any mover. Check out our Moving Tips Page on moving scams.

Check out all of your Moving Companies on the BBB! If they do not have a good rating, or if they have no rating at all on the BBB, then it is highly advised that you do not use them to do your move. Here is an example of Buehler Companies A+ BBB Rating !

Ask your moving companies if they have heard of the other moving companies on your list! This seems strange, but if the known moving companies haven’t heard of the moving company you bring up, then you should not use that company! Most moving companies know their competitors.

Ask your moving company if they are AMSA certified! If they are a good reputable moving company, then they should have the credentials to back up their claim.

Remember that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!!! Don’t always go with the lowest rate, it could be a scam or an unethical moving company that could hold your belongings on the truck and demand additional money from you before giving your items back.

Ask Ask Ask! Ask your friends and family what moving companies they know of. Ask them if they have ever used any moving companies for their moves. Ask them if they have seen the moving company operate.

Doing these simple steps can save you a huge headache in the end. When you choose a moving company, choose quality.
