How To Find The Best Full Service Movers

When you’re assessing full service moving companies, it’s not always easy to separate the good from the bad. Luckily, there are some simple steps you can take to ensure that you find the best fit for your moving needs. In this article, we’ll outline a step-by-step process for finding the right option to meet your requirements and deliver your items safely and securely to your new home or business.

The first step in finding a reliable moving company that can do it all is to understand what your moving needs are. There’s a host of options at your disposal when hiring movers and knowing exactly the type of service you need can save both time and money. Here are some of the most commonly requested moving services you’re likely to be offered by professional movers.

  • Commercial or residential moving
  • White glove moving services
  • Furniture disassembly and reassembly
  • Packing and loading
  • Short term storage units
  • Supplemental insurance coverage
  • Special equipment for heavy & oversize items

As you can see from the list above, there’s a lot to choose from! Different services have different price points so being aware of exactly the type of moving help you need can go a long way toward making the process easier. For example, if you need packing help, as well as furniture breakdown and reassembly, those carry an additional cost beyond standard moving.

Once you know what type of moving services you need, it’s easy to get a number of competing quotes from almost any moving company. Before you do that, however, you need to figure out which moving companies to consider. The best way to go about this is to explore the website for a mover and see if they offer what you need. Not only that, but you should also be able to glean their level of professionalism and experience—two factors you should not undersell when considering prospective moving companies.

A-1 Auto Transport can help you move your household goods to any location or city, nationwide. Call 888-241-3110 if you’d like a FREE no obligation price quote for full service moving!

Follow Up Steps To Finding A Reputable & Professional Mover

After determining your moving needs and considering the information they provide about their company, it’s time to dig in and look for customer reviews, ratings, and recommendations. There’s several resources you can use for this step, including online ratings, experiences from previous customers, and consumer websites like the Better Business Bureau. Perhaps the most helpful resource available is the mover selection tool from the FMCSA, which oversees the industry in terms of licensing, operating authority, and safety standards.

Finding A Reputable Movers

The final step in the process is to contact the best options you’ve considered and get a cost estimate. Price quotes are free of charge and do not require any sort of payment or agreement—this is an important thing to remember. If a moving company asks for payment or contractual agreement before giving you a price, it’s time to move on to other options. It’s recommended that you call a company for an estimate as this can give you another way to gain an understanding of how they treat their customers.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
