How to find the best moving company

Use websites such as Moverreviews.com or Transportreviews.com to check how previous customers rate a moving company. The reviews mostly deal with service delivery and customer handling. Movers such as A-1 Auto Transport score a 5-star rating with every 97/100 reviews.
Use the company’s USDOT number to conduct a credibility search. The moving company should be registered and licensed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association. They should also have a satisfactory safety rating and zero pending violations.
Ask for quotations from different moving companies and make a comparison. The best moving companies have a fair quotation which includes extra services. Companies which provide low quotations do not necessarily mean low prices; they may have hidden charges which emerge after signing the contract.

Tips on how to ease your move
- Plan early: Contact your moving company months in advance. Verify their resources and equipment by visiting their offices. Set a convenient moving date between the months of October and April. Let the company representative come and conduct a thorough walk-through. Source for moving supplies months ahead. The U-Haul customer moving forum and Freecycle.com have free quality packing material and subsidized moving equipment.
- Budget: Formulate a budget using the company’s estimate as a guide. Ensure you include all items, specialized items and unforeseen circumstances. Confirm the final moving cost does not exceed 10% of the estimate. Avoid using inexperienced personnel to handle your items. The accidents may cripple your move. Keep time by assigning sufficient labour to each task. Delays may result to additional expenses.
- Moving day: Pack items from one room as you move to the next. Begin with rarely used items as you progress to everyday items. Create an inventory for all packed items. Label all the boxes along the sides. The label should display the room destination and type of items. Use bright and huge labels for boxes with delicate items. Place all the packed items in strategic locations and inform the moving company. Provide beverages and snacks for the personnel. Tip them fairly and sign off the moving contract.
