How to Choose a Mover

Moving Guides and Toold by

It is worth taking time to learn about how to choose a mover, because your entire moving experience will depend on it. We can help you to find professional house movers in your area, who can be relied on to take care of your valuable possessions.

Ask family, friends and colleagues to recommend mover services and talk to at least three mover companies, before you make a decision. Look for apartment movers who are helpful and take time to understand your needs.

Donít make a decision only on the basis of very low hourly rates. Some crooked moving companies offer very low quotes, just to get your order, and demand much more, once they have your possessions.

Question the moving service representative to ensure that there are no hidden charges and ask about the claims policy of the apartment mover.

If you are moving out of state, make certain that the mover company is licensed by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). You can verify the DOT number on the website of the FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration).

Find out if the moving mover is authorized to transport household goods and is adequately insured.

Ensure that you are dealing with a moving company and not a broker, since brokers cannot be held responsible for any damages or other problems. Brokers are not licensed to handle the move and may hand over your order to the highest bidder.

Most national moving and storage companies are not licensed to handle local moves. If the local agent of the company is handling your move, the company will not be responsible for any damage or losses.

Check to see if there are any customer complaints against the moving van company, with the Better Business Bureau and the FMCSA.
