How to Find the Best Moving Company

The average American will move more than 11 times in their life. While this may seem like a lot, I’m in my mid-30s and have personally moved 15 times already!

But how do you go about choosing the right moving company to handle your most prized possessions?

I turned to www.reviews.com and their 2017 list of The Best Moving Companies. They did the legwork and surveyed 500 people and reviewed 82 moving companies before choosing their two best.

When choosing a mover:

  • Make sure your mover is insured: to move across the country, a mover should be licensed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration(FMCSA), which monitors and ensures compliance with safety requirements and regulations for long-distance movers. If a moving company isn’t licensed with the FMCSA, it shouldn’t be transporting your stuff.
  • Get a quote in person: price out at least three estimates in writing, and avoid any that are too high or too low. While you can get a quote online or over-the-phone, an in-person quote will get you the best estimate.
  • Customer service is key: ask yourself: if you can’t get an actual person to answer the phone, how responsive will the movers be to inquiries during the moving process?
  • Check online reviews: everyone’s got an opinion but if 200 people rate a moving company poorly, chances are you’re bound to have a poor experience as well.

Moving is stressful. Spend wisely on a good mover and a professional organizer who can manage your move and unpack and organize you in your new home.

While not cheap, having professionals pack, move, and unpack and organize you is priceless.
