Moving to a new home or apartment can be a challenging task considering all that is involved like packing your belongings, transporting them to your new home, and eventually unpacking. If moving out of state, there are plenty of other responsibilities such as paperwork, leases, taxation, insurance and more that will take up your time. The hassles of packing and relocating can be reduced considerably by hiring a professional moving company to oversee the job. With the many movers in your local area, you’ll need to ensure that you choose the one that is just right for you.

Finding a reputable moving company requires doing some research. Here are some tips that can help you find the best company to provide reliable relocation services and to make your move go smoothly:

  • Hire a local moving company. Start by researching the local moving companies in your area and reading their reviews. You can search online or even find names on our moving app to download to your phone. You can also ask family or friends if they have any recommendations for you.
  • Get price estimates. Contact the moving companies that you researched and ask for an in-home, written estimate. While the estimator is at your home, gather as much information as you can about their company. When comparing price quotes, don’t be afraid to negotiate for a better rate or ask about any special offers or discounts you may qualify for.
  • Verify the credentials of the moving company you are considering for the job. You can check their DOT and motor carrier numbers online  to make sure they are accredited and legit.
  • Now you should be confident to select a mover. Confirm the moving dates and any other details of your move. It might help to have a moving checklist ready so that you can discuss the entire project.
