When you hire a professional moving company, trustworthiness is most likely at the top of the list of must-haves. After all, you’re handing over the contents of your home–or essentially your entire life–to the moving team you hire.
So how do you know a moving company will safely and efficiently relocate your belongings from point A to point B? In addition to talking with the service and confirming they have all proper licensing, here are four details to look for in professional moving company.
Branded trucks. This may seem like a minor detail, but a company that has visible, consistent branding across their fleet of trucks can give you peace of mind for a few reasons. For one, it shows that the company owns its own trucks and isn’t relying on a third-party hauling service to transport your items. Plus, it’s a good indicator that the company is committed to professionalism, and shows ownership of and pride in their service.
Uniforms. Like trucks, workers in uniform is a sign of professionalism, and also one that the moving company employs a full-time, experienced, well-trained staff, and not part-time contractors.
Website, blog, social media. These days, most reputable companies should have an easy to find website and a broad online presence. A legitimate-looking site, frequently updated social media channels are proof that the company is actively in business and engaged with its customer base.
Reviews. One of the most telling signs of a reputable, trustworthy company is its reviews on sites like Yelp and Angie’s List. Reading about the experiences of a company’s past customers will give you an accurate idea of the levels of service you can expect.
