Why hire a moving company?
- Professionalism: Professional movers organize the move months in advance and use appropriate equipment and personnel to handle the move. They keep communication lines open and offer various options when handling each task. They know how the move should progress and hence expect zero delays. Reputable movers also resolve any disagreements in a timely and conclusive way.
- Insurance: When conducting a self-move, any damage that occurs is repaid from your pocket. This is inefficient and increases the moving cost astronomically. Professional movers are obligated by law to provide insurance for each move they handle. The insurance covers the items, workers and the building/house. Any damage is compensated at 60cents a pound. They also have supplemental insurance which is common for high-value items.
How to find a reliable mover
Check the American Movers and Storage Association for the best moving companies. The association deals with state to state moving companies across the country. Any mover registered with the association is trustworthy. They have to abide by a professional code of ethics or risk expulsion. Choose members with more than a 10 year membership.
Search the Maryland Movers Conference for reliable moving companies in Maryland. The organization lists over 50 of the best movers. All the movers have passed the Maryland Motor Vehicle inspection tests and have the necessary permits. Check the Maryland Department of Transportation for your rights and responsibilities. They also dictate the conduct of moving company to customers.
Use the USDOT number at FMCSA to view how the company ranks in terms of safety and experience. State to state moving companies should have few complaints. They should also have resolved all complaints successfully. Unresolved complaints show a company’s unreliability.

Tips to conduct an easy move
- Sort out your belongings. Scale down your move to improve your hauling efficiency. Having too much stuff to move means a higher charge and cramping up your new premises.
- Have a central location for packing your items. It reduces the time used to locate and move items in the house. After packing, place the items in strategic positions in the house to aid in the personnel movement.
- Create an inventory of all packed and loaded items. Make sure it aligns with the movers and get a copy of their inventory before they leave.
- Reserve a convenient parking spot for the moving company weeks in advance. Ensure the elevators are working and your neighbours know about your move.
- Cancel deliveries and subscriptions on time. It will result to additional expenses if the delivery guy turns up on moving day.
- Change your address and notify people within your locality. Update the change at I am moving to reach thousands of businesses. This should be done at least 2 weeks in advance to avoid mail going to your previous address after you move out.
