You wouldn’t trust just anyone with your precious possessions, which is why hiring a legitimate moving company is of the utmost importance. With fraudulent companies attempting to take advantage of your money (and your stuff), knowing the difference is vital. M. Dyer & Sons has been Pearl City, Hawaii’s premier moving company for almost 50 years. Whether you’re relocating from the mainland or making an inter-island move, the highly trained staff will ensure your possessions are in qualified hands.
As part of National Moving Month, M. Dyer & Sons offers these tips to ensure your moving company is legitimate:
Check BBB Ratings: Qualified movers will be registered with the BBB, and a quality company will have the ratings to match. If the movers you’re considering aren’t registered with the BBB, they most likely aren’t legitimate. Try using Google to dig up additional reviews and information before making a hire.
- Visit The Facility: Local movers will have a facility near you, and it’s always worth checking out. A legitimate company will gladly supply an address and other information. Drive by the facility to ensure that it actually exists, and check out their inventory of trucks, employees, and the action on the lot. Moving is a major process, so don’t just hire someone off the internet.
- Make Sure They’re Licensed & Insured: Licensure and insurance mean that the moving company has qualified staff who will handle your possessions with quality and care, all while saving you time and effort. In case an accident happens, your possessions are still protected.
- Get Estimates In Writing: Moving is difficult enough without the hassle of fraudulent movers. Ensure that your movers are legitimate by getting multiple in-home estimates. Show the company everything you have, from the living room to the shed. Ask for estimates to compare pricing, and avoid any companies that offer overly high or low estimates.
