Household Moving Tips: Pay Attention to Reviews
Something that a lot of people don’t really think about when they’re trying to find a household moving company is actually looking at how reputable and reliable their mover is. It’s a common problem particularly for first-time customers and homeowners, but it’s something that you really should be doing any time you’re looking for a company to ship all your worldly possessions. Household moving reviews are a great way to ensure that you’re working with a company that will actually do a good job instead of just telling you what you want to hear and giving you subpar service, but the question is how to find the right one using the information available to you.
To start, you’ll want to look for someone who can handle transportation services in your area. Nationwide household movers are the best at this, because they contract with local movers on a daily basis to provide services to and from anywhere in the United States. A great way to start is by filling out a quote form and just getting some free estimates. They’re always free (and don’t submit quote forms that make you pay) and net you multiple quotes from nationwide household movers that can handle your shipment. Once you have your quotes, it’s time to start the research!
This is where things can get tricky, though. A good place to start is by doing a Google search for “household moving company reviews” or something similar; you should also search individual companies you get quotes from. Look at the top results – many household moving reviews are posted on aggregate websites that provide reviews for a number of different shippers. Once you’re there you can also peruse top-rated companies and even contact them if you’re not satisfied with any of the quotes you’ve gotten. You want to find a moving company that has been around awhile and that has mostly 5-star reviews – no company can please every customer, so don’t be afraid of a bad review or two. Of course, if there’s a few dozen all saying the same basic things, that’s a major red flag, so keep an eye on who you’re looking at and talking to so you don’t end up booking with a horrible company.
