- All moving and/or transport companies must be registered with the USDOT. They are also required to be licensed through the state.
- They should possess certifications proving their success throughout the years.
- As a licensed moving company, the state also demands that they offer the set minimum of insurance coverage to each customer. Some movers choose to have supplemental packages in case a customer prefers more protection on the value of their things.
- They should have amazingly helpful and friendly customer service representatives ready to answer the phones for their inquisitive customers.
- They must either have the exact relocation services you seek or a large variety of services for you to choose from. Many movers will tailor your plan to suit your needs and your budget the best they can.
- Their rates must seem reasonable and they shouldn’t expect any money to be handed to them upfront.

The Cost of Moving
Until an in-home evaluation has been performed or the relocation has been completed, it is much too difficult to give an exact total for your moving services. Of course, movers will hand out rounded estimates based on the criteria you provide them with either over the phone or online through their moving calculators but these aren’t usually honest quotes. However, they do provide you with a figure that you can use for comparison purposes as you narrow down the movers you’re considering to hire.
Over the Phone Quotes
Over the phone quotes are perhaps the best way to gather prices on moving services through several companies. It allows you to get on the phone with a rep to not only receive your free quote but to ask questions and learn more about the company before you choose one to hire. While you’re on the phone with the representative, they will ask you a few questions before giving you a quote. Answer these inquiries to the best of your ability, providing as much detail as you can. This will only help you to get a more honest total.

Online Moving Calculators
Online moving calculators aren’t as accurate as over the phone estimates but they are usually much quicker and convenient. By simply submitting answers to the questions listed and providing some details, you will receive a quote within minutes. However, this is an impersonal way of going about getting a quote and it may not be as accurate as you had hoped.
A majority of moving companies will request an in-home evaluation before they can hand you a total for their relocation services. This inspection, or appraisal entails a quick walkthrough of your Pleasant Grove home. During the walkthrough, the movers will evaluate all the rooms that they must move goods out of. They’ll assess just how much property they will need to transport so they can decide what truck or trucks to use to get the job done sufficiently. These experts will also determine how many laborers are needed, what kind of equipment may be necessary, and how much time the relocation may consume. Once they come to these determinations and include other factors (EX: current cost of fuel), they will provide the customer with an estimate.

- If you own any pets or have any children, get a relative to watch them on the days scheduled for the move. Having them out of the way will only keep everyone safer.
- Make sure all your belongings are packed and ready as according to the mover’s requests.
