You’ve finally decided it’s time to move into a new home. Now comes the step of deciding which moving company to trust with your belongings. It’s difficult finding a reputable company with reviews you can trust. We’ve put together some tips on how to find quality movers in your area to do the job right.
Look into local movers
Choosing a moving company in your local area is a great tip for newbie movers. You can rest assured that the team you hired is familiar with the area and knows all the ins and outs of traffic patterns and local construction. Working with a moving company a little further out often lends to higher travel costs and slower delivery times. No matter where you’re choosing your movers from, make sure you do your research.
Ask your community
The internet is full of community pages for locals to give and ask for recommendations. Look into community groups on websites like Facebook. Not only can you get some great tips on moving companies, you get a chance to connect more with your community. This is especially helpful if you are planning on moving to an entirely different neighborhood.
Check customer reviews
It’s important to do your research on a company regardless of how many glowing recommendations they get. Check customer reviews on the company’s Facebook, their Better Business Bureau status, or Google reviews. The broader of a view you get the more information you have to make an informed decision. Differentiating real and fake reviews is difficult, but just remember to use your discretion. Check Real Pro Movers Reviews here.
Be cautious of extra fees
We all have that one friend who experienced being charged double the quoted amount during a move. Have a chat with each company you are considering and let them know the entire scope of work. Be sure to confirm the amount multiple times before and on moving day to avoid any surprises. We also recommend you always stay onsite during a move. This helps to make sure you’re available to answer clarifications so the job’s done correctly.
