Unfortunately it is all too easy to get trapped in any type of a scam in this day which is why it is so important to do your homework before choosing a moving company. Choosing the wrong mover can add way too much stress to an already stressful situation. Our veteran experts here at this Boston moving company offer their best tips for finding the moving company that is right for you. Ask your family and friends about their own experience with moving companies – who better to give you advice than the people you trust most and the people that have already moved. Do your research! Websites like the Better Business Bureau (bbb.org) allows you to look up specific companies to make sure they are a real business. Another helpful website is www.movingscam.com which provides more tips for finding a company and moving in general. It is tempting to plug in a few numbers for a free online estimate but have a company come in to your home to do an in-home estimate. This way you get a real estimate – maybe that couch is heavier than you think or your antique desk needs special handling – and you get to know the company better. If a company doesn’t do an in-home estimate, move on! Finally, visit the company’s headquarters if you can do it. This may seem like a lot of work but it is worth it. You want to make sure that the company handles items with care, has a warehouse and trucks with permanent graphics. This way you can be sure that this is a reputable company and not a broker that will sell your business to the highest bidder. As they say, “Two guys and a truck…” It is important that you find a company that you can trust. They will be responsible for easing the stress of an already stressful move and they will be handling some of your most valuable items. It is not difficult to find a great company as long as you research and do your homework.
