It is not a secret that moving is a big deal, not just financially, but personally as well. Half of what makes a house a home is the memories that people make in that house. Sometimes though, life happens, and we have to pick up, and go somewhere else. Moving is a stressful process, between signing leases, closing on homes, talks with lawyers and lenders, it can be exhausting. One way to make the process that much easier to hire movers, professionals whose literal job is to assist in moving your worldly possessions from one place to another. This leaves one important question, how can you tell a good company from a bad one? What are some signs of a professional company, and what are some signs of someone you should not be trusting your money or time into?
At Falcon Moving we are here to discuss exactly that, so today we are going to explore how to research moving companies, what are some signs to look for, signs to avoid, and some important information you should know while gathering quotes, so you can make the most informed decision possible for you and your unique situation.
One of the most important things to look at when researching a moving company is their reviews. What are their clients saying about them? Not just their ratings, but the details as well. Did they arrive on time? Did they handle furniture with care? Were they professional throughout the entire job? Were the movers hygienic? If there is a “no” to any of these questions, you may want to consider not going with that company. In addition to the quality of their reviews, check to see how many reviews that company actually has. Some prefer “quality over quantity”, but in this case, you want to shoot for quality and quantity.
Does the company have an address? Both a physical address and online address? If the potential company does not have a website, that should be a big red flag. In today’s digital age, it takes very little time, effort, and money to create a professional website. If a company can’t be bothered to even have a website, chances are they are not a serious business venture. If something happens to your possessions during your move, it will be extremely hard to track down the company and find a resolution to the problem. By considering these factors early, you can narrow your search right away so that way when it comes time to get quotes, you won’t be wasting your time.
Now that we have learned how to spot a quality moving company alongside a poor moving company, we can begin to dive into what you should be looking for while gathering quotes and estimates, along with some other information that is important to know in the moving process. Thanks for reading, and we look forward to seeing you next time!
