How To Find the Best Moving Company
Moving can be a very stressful and expensive experience if you don’t hire a professional moving company that is licensed, bonded, and insured in your state. If you don’t take extra precautions to protect yourself and your belongings, it can quickly turn into a nightmare.
Where Do I Start?
So how do you find a moving company that you can trust with everything that you own, and still feel safe in your decision? While we don’t recommend moving yourself you can search for local licensed businesses on websites like The Better Business Bureau. We don’t recommend picking the first moving company that you may come across on a Google search. Do your research. Jake’s Moving and Storage in MD is your local mover for residents, businesses, and storage solutions in the DC Metro area.
Where Do I Find the Right Movers?
The first thing that you should do is put down your keyboard and step away from your computer. While there are some reputable moving companies that have web sites, nearly all of the victims that contact us found their moving company on the Internet. The Internet will come in handy later, but for now let’s start local. As mentioned above, use websites like the “BBB” or “Angies List” which will let you see reviews of other people who have used that companies services.
Your next step is to pick up your phone book, or call your local real estate agents and find at least three moving companies that have offices in your area. Try to find moving companies that have been in business at least ten years, and do not hire a moving broker. You’ll want to ensure the moving company you hire knows how to pack, unpack, and take apart furniture pieces if need be.
