Moving out of one house and into another house can be a bit overwhelming to say the least, however if you hire the right moving company it doesn’t have to be that bad.  Knowing that your belongings are safe in the hands of reputable movers goes a long way to making your move less stressful for everyone involved.  Below are a few tips on how to hire the right moving company so that you can rest easy and enjoy your new home!

  1. One of the best ways to know that you are hiring a good moving company is through word of mouth. Talk to your friends and family members to see who they have used in the past and who they recommend to help you move.  If they don’t have any good recommendations you can talk to people in your neighborhood to see who they used and if they were up to par.
  2. Another way to know if you are hiring a good moving company to help you in your move is by talking with your Realtor. Since Realtors are in the business of buying and selling homes, many times they may have heard through the grapevine what moving companies are good and which ones you should stay away from.
  3. You can also look for reviews online of a moving company you are thinking about hiring. Check to see how the moving company rates with the Better Business Bureau.  You can also check on such sights online as Yelp and even FaceBook for ideas on who to hire.
  4. Knowing how long the moving company has been in business is also a good way feel more comfortable about hiring a moving company. If you want someone who knows what they are doing it’s a good idea to hire someone who has been in business for a while.
  5. Finding out what the moving companies rates include is another way to feel more comfortable about whom you hire to move your belongings from one house to the other.  No one wants a surprise unexpected bill in the end.

Hopefully these tips and ideas on how to hire the right moving company for you and your family will get you started in the right direction so that you can enjoy the process instead of getting so stressed out about it.
