Moving can be overwhelming, but finding a great moving company can make a world of difference. Looking for the right company takes a bit of research and price comparison, but you’ll be glad that you put in the work. Below are a few of our recommendation on where to find a trusted and reputable moving company that will not destroy your stuff during a move.
Ask Around: Nothing beats a good recommendation from a trusted individual. As you prepare for your move, ask your family, friends, and colleagues who have moved recently about their experience. If no one that you know has moved recently, or you want to look for a better deal, you can research on the Internet. The Internet has lots of review sites that can give you an outside view. Websites like Yelp and other third party websites will give you unbiased reviews on what people experienced with the moving company. Be sure to read more than one review and dig into more then one or two reviews. You can also ask your real estate agents and see who they recommend for a move. Your real estate agents tends to be a good people to ask because they deal with moving in and out on a daily bases.
Start Close: You want to find a company that operates in your area, and in the area where you will move. You can start by entering “moving companies near me” into a search engine, or be more specific and enter your city. For instance, if you live in or are moving to Ventura county, search “moving companies Los Angeles.” Once you have several prospective companies, make sure that these companies will be able to move your belongings from your old home to your new location. If you have items that are large and potentially unconventional, for instance, a grand piano, you should make sure that the Super Powers Moving Company can handle these items.
Background Check: You should always take a bit of extra time to look at moving company’s reviews-even if a company comes with a good recommendation. For instance, many people trust Attention To Detail Moving Company for a safe and easy move, and this can be reflected from testimonials on their website. You also want a company that has been around for some time and that has a good reputation. Using websites like Better Business Bureau and Angie’s List will give you a good sense of how the moving company dose business.
Finding a reputable moving company is easy as long as you are up for doing a bit of online research and making a few phone calls. Once you find a great company, however, the simplicity that they will bring to the rest of the moving process will definitely be worth the work.
