When it comes to moving to a new home, the last thing you and your family need is any type of unnecessary stress. There are so many working parts to a move, and the easier you and others can make that process, the better for everyone.
It is so important to make sure that the people you hire for any job are trustworthy and dependable. There should be no confusion as to the people and professionals you are dealing with and that are serving you. And because the Internet over the years has opened up a whole host of services, it’s important for you as a consumer to be as careful as possible in understanding who you are dealing with.
That’s why when you need to move to a new home, it’s important for you to deal directly with a reputable moving company.
And you need to be careful when directed to a moving broker.
Let’s talk about why it’s important to deal with a moving company first.
Dealing directly with the moving professionals that will serve you
When you hire a moving company, you will end up dealing with the people that will serve you and your family. You will have a dedicated contact such as a move manager and that person will see to it that every part of your move is conducted the way you want it. But before that, a reputable moving company will conduct a professional survey of all your goods and items and provide you with an accurate quote from a professionally trained moving consultant.
You need to do business with an established moving company
We are proud to say that we have been serving as a moving company in Boston since 1905. And there are several other established moving companies in Boston that operate as trusted organizations. When you’re choosing a business to help you with such a critical part of your life, it’s important to work with an established business that has a reputation for excellence. This gives you peace of mind and you know exactly who you are dealing with. If you are embarking on an international move or an interstate move, it’s even more important to deal with the national carrier to ensure they have the network you need for your upcoming move. We serve as a United Van Lines agent in Boston and it gives us the backing we need to give you even more comfort during your move.
Why you should be careful with moving brokers
A moving broker is not an established moving company. They do not have any type of moving professionals on staff. Their sole purpose is to sell your moving job to a business within their network. In most cases, they will bid on your move and then find a moving company to do the job. If they bid incorrectly, you could end up without a moving company on the day of your move. And in some cases the moving companies they do work with may not be established businesses, despite what they tell you. Their crews may not be trained properly Which can result in your move going terribly wrong.
Bottom line? Resist the urge to save a few pennies on your move and go with a reputable moving company that is an established business.
