We know however, that many people wonder how they can vet a moving company and find a reputable moving company to work with them. Below are a few tips on what you should consider when looking for a reputable moving company: Do your homework by checking to be sure the moving company you choose is approved by the Better Business Bureau, read on-line reviews and be certain the company you choose has the American Moving and Storage Association’s ProMover Seal. Be aware of the pitfalls associated with hiring a moving broker. Brokers farm out your job to actual movers which leaves them with no control over the moving process. Also, current household goods consumer protection laws are not applicable to moving brokers. Collect opinions and reviews from your friends, family and colleagues regarding movers they have hired. The internet is also a valuable resource where you can read reviews and experiences on sites such as: www.movingscam.com. Be sure the moving company you are looking to hire conducts an in-home visual inspection of your items to accurately asses the weight to generate a proper estimate. A reputable moving company should also evaluate other factors like parking, truck access and permits at this time. Taking a little time to research moving companies will help you find an experienced and reputable company who can make your moving experience as smooth and calm as possible.
