Questions for movers
Choosing a professional moving company for your next moving project should go very easy especially if you are armed with many questions to ask them. Such a huge moving project like this needs to be done with great precision so that you are not disappointed come moving day. Those who find themselves disgruntled after moving day is mainly as a result of not doing their homework when it comes to finding out more about the moving company. You want to work with a company that you can trust and to be able to work along with a moving company that has your best interest at heart. Price quotes may be your top priority as far as getting more information is concerned but just think about how many other pertinent issues are worth discussing with your movers. You may have a mover that would give you a steal of a deal when it comes to a price quote but is the moving company licensed to operate a moving business?
These are questions that you should be asking. In addition, it would also be great to find out what sets this particular moving company apart from the rest? Moving experts would tell you that a company should be able to provide you with at least three positive reasons why you should choose their company over their competitors. Any company that is willing to drag their competitors in the mud based on rumors in order win you over as a customer isn’t even worth considering doing business with.
A reputable moving company would not think twice in showing you a copy of their moving license and insurance upon request nor would they have problems providing you with the owner’s name and their mailing address as well. Find out how long the company has been in existence and also get information about the length of time the employees have been there as well. You want to be locked in to a stable company with employees who have been there for several years who would be a bit more trustworthy than someone who has recently joined the company. Get information about the company’s hiring tactics and if they perform background checks on the moving crew that they hire. Also, get references from former customers so you can speak with them and get feedback from their moving experience with the company.
Is your prospective moving company a member of the Better Business Bureau? What is their rating with the company and do they have a list of consumer complaints? If the company would not provide this information to you, you can always check out the Better Business Bureau’s website at www.bbb.com where you can research the information yourself. Don’t be alarmed if the company you are checking has a satisfactory rating; not every customer would be pleased with a moving service. It is how the moving company handles the whole incident is what speaks volumes about the company that you should choose.
