How do you select the best moving company for your needs?
- Ask for recommendations.
- Beware of fly-by-night operations. They may seem like a bargain, but you get what you pay for.
- Request a written estimate and contract. (Beware of movers that just give you a price over the phone.)
- Confirm they are covered by insurance, and clarify their policy regarding lost or broken items. Make sure you receive a copy of their insurance certificate.
- Finally, always ask what circumstances would result in extra charges being applied. The number one complaint received about movers by the Better Business Bureau is unexpected extra charges.
