How To Pick Movers

People who know how to pick movers look for affordable service providers who are known for providing excellent. Those who know how to pick a mover never select a moving company only on the basis of the lowest bid.

It pays to start looking for a suitable moving and storage company well before moving day and to obtain moving quotes in writing from at least three movers.

Be wary if you get a moving cost estimate that is much lower than the rest. Make sure that there are no hidden charges involved. Some crooked home movers provide very low quotes to hook customers and then demand two or three times the estimated amount at the time of delivery.  

As per the law, a mover cannot ask you to pay more than 110% of a non-binding moving estimate and 100% of a binding estimate at the time of delivery. Non-binding estimates are commonly used because they protect the interests of the shippers as well as the mover services.

Take time to check the credentials and reputation of the mover companies before you select one of them. Confirm that the moving companies are licensed and insured. Call up references to find out about the quality of service provided.  

Interstate moving companies must be registered with the FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) and have USDOT numbers. You can find information about interstate movers by entering their details on the Company Snapshot page of the FMCSA website.

Many people avoid brokers and prefer to make arrangements with moving services that operate their own trucks. The fact is that many professional movers also act as brokers, and there are brokers who also own and operate their own trucks.

You may find that a broker will offer you a better price than what you can get by approaching the house movers directly. This is because a broker will have a wide network of contacts and will be able to find and book empty spaces on moving trucks at highly discounted rates. 

The legal responsibility of a broker ends as soon as arrangements have been made to ship your possessions with a moving service. However, many brokers offer better customer service than transport carriers.
