Hiring a moving company means trusting strangers with your belongings, so you always need to ensure that your movers are reliable, responsible professionals. Everyone has heard horror stories of unscrupulous moving companies holding a family’s belongings hostage until they pay extra charges tacked onto the bill, or refusing to pay for damaged valuables.
To help make sure your moving experience is as stress-free as possible, Economy Moving & Storage in Cincinnati offers some tips to finding a moving assistance company that you can truly rely on:
- Research, research, research: Ask your friends and coworkers for referrals, and get references from any companies they recommend that offer them. Also check with the Better Business Burueau to see how those companies handle customer complaints.
- Compare prices: Get estimates from several companies, and if possible, have a consultant come to your home to get a more accurate estimate based on the weight of your belongings.
- Get insured: A moving company that packs your things should always carry insurance against damage from improper packing, but if you pack things yourself you should get your own insurance policy. Either way, the company should offer coverage against accidents and negligence.
- Avoid scams: Check the DOT number from the company to make sure their address matches the one they gave you, and pay a visit to their office. One sign is to look for trucks that are clearly labeled with the company’s name and logo.
