Why you need a moving company

They require adequate labor to cover all the activities within the time given. Moving companies use an adequate number of personnel in their services who are professionally trained, ensuring swift and safe services.
- Equipment: Handling heavy items such as L-couches or king size beds requires proper equipment. Professional moving companies have different types of equipment for each service. Loading is done using trolleys, forklifts and ramps while the items are transported in modified vehicles. The equipment is operated by trained personnel to increase its efficiency.
- Packing and house arrangement: Packing is the most time-consuming task in a move. It is time-consuming and accounts for over 40% of all moving expenses. Moving companies have experience packing different types of items and arranging houses to the customer’s liking.

A checklist for a reliable moving company

Use the Better Business Bureau to verify a company’s experience. The organization has business profiles of thousands of moving companies. They also assess moving companies and handle consumer complaints.
- Permits: Enter the company’s USDOT carrier number at the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association to verify their license and insurance information. The association is mandated to regulate moving, storage and transport companies in the country. They also display moving companies’ safety ratings, pending violations and moving resources.
- Consumer complaints: Moving companies are bound to get a few unsatisfied customers with moves they handle. How they handle them, determines their competence and reliability. Use verified customer review websites to check the number of complaints lodged against moving companies.
- Awards: Moving companies which have quality services are easily noticeable. They have numerous positive reviews, a high safety rating and little or no pending violations. They are also involved in community empowerment projects and have sustainable services.
Tips to make your move easy
- Plan all activities months in advance. Adequate preparation ensures you perform all activities efficiently. You will not have to rush when packing or dealing with other personal duties.
- Create a moving plan. Start by assigning dates to major tasks like packing and the moving day. Ensure your schedule is flexible to accommodate any unexpected changes that might occur.
- Hire a reliable moving company to assist with your long distance move. Moving companies make your move more efficient by doing all the tasks professionally. This reduces the likelihood of accidents occurring while also saving time.
- Scale down your belongings before you begin packing. Separate items you no longer use and sell or donate them. Reducing your load means lower moving rates and a swift moving process.
- Change your address at the United States Postal Services at least 2-3 weeks in advance. Appropriate timing ensures your new mail arrives on time.
