Top 5 Things to Look for in Your Residential Mover

Top 5 Things to Look for in Your Residential Mover

When you’re preparing for a move, there’s a lot you need to take into account to make sure you’re doing your research on local moving companies and to make sure your residential moving process goes smoothly. There are a lot of options out there, and not all of them are attuned to your best interests or your needs, so it’s important to make sure you end up in the right place with the right moving company. 


Hiring local residential movers is a great way to make sure your moving process goes smoothly and is handled quickly and efficiently, no matter the size or scope of your relocation. While it might come with a higher price tag than renting your own truck and handling the entire process by yourself, the ease and convenience that come with hiring professionals are unmatched. Plus, moving is not easy – let professionals do the (literal) heavy lifting so you don’t have to!


The Local Residential Movers for You

When looking for a moving company for your residential move, you can be easily overwhelmed by all of the different companies around, and can quickly go cross-eyed when trying to compare and contrast rates. Getting constant incoming calls from companies trying to win your business doesn’t help much, either. To make your search easier and narrow down your results, let’s explore the top 5 things you should be looking for in a residential moving company. 


  • Positive Reviews

The first thing you should always look for when researching a moving company is their positive reviews. If you look up a company and ignore all of the terrible reviews on google, on their website, and especially on the Better Business Bureau, you’re setting yourself up for not only a stressful moving process but for possible damage to your belongings. 


Making sure to use a company with good reviews can also help you avoid moving company scams, which can easily slip in and present as a regular moving company if you don’t look closely enough. 


Going with a moving company with many good reviews will set you up for success and will make sure that your process goes much smoother, plus will protect you from possible scams. 


  • Experience

When researching moving companies, you should also pay attention to how long this company has been in the business. Look for a company that has been in business for a while, and that has a following of loyal customers who have received good experiences. If a company seems very new and without good clientele experiences, it could be a scam. 


  • Variety of Services

When looking for a moving company, check out the variety of services they offer clients. To get the best deal and the right services for you, use a company like Moving Services Inc., which offers customized or flexible moving packages that will suit you and your family. 


  • Specialties

Whether you’re carrying out a  local residential move or a long-distance move, make sure you’re looking for a company that specializes in the type of moving you’re looking for. This will make sure that you not only get a good experience, but that you can have confidence in the company you’re using. 


Moving Services Inc., are long-distance agents of Stevens Worldwide Van Lines, and who have the resources to ensure your belongings reach their destination without incident. 


  • Customer Service

You should absolutely always judge a company based on the customer service they provide to you. You should always be given attentive, friendly, and professional customer service that has your best interests in mind, and should only be working with people who are truly working for you and your best interest.
