How to Choose a Moving Company: Old Way vs. New Way

choose the right moving company

Can we all agree that moving ranks right up there with having a root canal or stubbing a toe? All kidding aside, most people believe it to be one of the most stressful events in their life. Deciding how to get your family and belongings from the old place to the new one will require serious research and consideration. In 2015, there are two different ways to find a moving company: the old way or the new way.

The Old Way

Until now, the only way to get a moving quote was to call a moving company and schedule an appointment with them. A salesman from the company would then walk through your home to provide a “ballpark” estimate of what your move might cost. Unfortunately, estimates are not set-in-stone and the price could change, sometimes even doubling on your move day.

Before you decide if you should choose that moving company, you need to verify that their license and insurance are up to date with the appropriate agencies and do some research on their experience, reputation, claim history and reviews. (many moving companies operate without a valid license or without proper insurance)

If you want to compare more than one quote, you need to repeat this process multiple times and still be uncertain about your final move price. Sounds stressful and complicated, right?

The New Way
