What to do before your move
Ask your friends, relatives, and neighbors for recommendations.
The first step when searching for a mover should always be asking those you know. Word of mouth is often the best way to find a great mover. If you had furniture delivered from a shop in the area and were pleased with the moving service give the shop a call and ask who they use. Often small business take advantage of local movers, and will have helpful recommendations.
Research the reputations of your movers online.
Website such as the better business bureau will provide you a history of the company’s reputation. Google Business Reviews are also a great place to learn about a moving company’s reputation.
