- To hire a company that offers competitive rates, get the estimates of at least three moving companies. Compare this with the services they provide before making your decision. Different movers offer different rates, and it’s up to you to pick one that fits your budget.
- Consider hiring a BBB Accredited moving company. This is the highest level of achievement for a company which means that the quality of service delivery is first-class. The BBB also provides information about the performance of moving companies through their complaints sections. Avoid a company with numerous complaints.
- A reliable mover should have the legal documents required by the federal and state governments. The FMCSA is responsible for licensing companies in the transport industry. Interstate movers should have a USDOT Number while intrastate movers must have a license from the Illinois Commerce Commission.
