Why you need a moving company
- Emergencies. In case natural disasters or a separation takes place, moving companies have standby teams that can handle your move in fragments at your convenience. This allows you to recover as you look for appropriate housing in the right location.
- Less chances of getting hurt. Moving companies have professionals who are trained and have experience to handle your household goods safely while protecting themselves. They use proper moving equipment such as trolleys and ramps to lift and carry heavy items. This reduces the chances of personal injuries.
- Working in teams. They can also move bulky goods with ease. In case they get exhausted, they shift to lighter duties to ensure they recover before going back to the bulky stuff. When doing a self-move, you might injure yourself when loading or delivering your household goods.
- Valuable items. Household goods which hold financial or sentimental value to you are best handled by professionals. Moving companies have the skills and equipment to deal with heirlooms, art collections, fine china and other expensive goods. They also use the full-value replacement insurance when moving such items.

Find the best mover in Hickory
- Ask for referrals from friends or relatives who have moved in the past. They should go through your belongings to know the type of move you need. You can also ask real estate agents since they frequently deal with moving companies.
- Check the American Movers and Storage Association for a list of reliable moving companies. The association was formed to improve the moving industry through:
- Promoting awareness of the moving industry.
- Encouraging customers to use moving companies.
- Eliminating rogue movers through the Promover programme.
- Check the quality of services of a moving company at the Better Business Bureau. The organization assesses moving companies and rates them according to their prowess. Most reliable movers are rated A and B. It is also important to deal with assessed movers since they are answerable to the organization. A-1 Auto Transport is an accredited mover rated A by the BBB.
- Ensure the moving company you choose is licensed and insured.

You can also verify the company’s safety rating and pending violations and other useful information.
