Finding a reputable Moving Company
Relocation can be exciting! Moving Day doesn’t have to be stressful. A little bit of preparation and planning can take a lot of stress out of moving day. If you would like to hire a full service mover, who will also provide a packing service – you should do so as soon as possible. We have put together a short checklist of how to choosing the right moving company for your moving day:
- Search the Internet for a Mover
If you are like most people one of the first places you go when looking for something or someone is the internet. There are thousands of search results that come up when you type in “mover” or “moving company” If you live in a large home you may want to hire a locally based mover. That way you can have one of the moving consultants come right to your home to give you the most accurate quote.
- Read Mover Reviews
Some people aren’t lucky enough to have a friend or family member recommend a moving company. If that’s the case, search the internet for moving company reviews and see what other people’s experience has been. Even the Best Movers out there may a small percentage of negative reviews. IF that’s the case don’t discredit them right away. Find out how the mover handled the customer complaint? If the moving company has shown they have gone out of their way to fix a mistakes it speaks volumes about how important customer satisfaction is to that company.
- Chose a Mover with Accreditation
All Professional Movers have designations of some kind. Take caution if you are considering hiring a mover without any accreditation. Most accreditations require a certain level of standards in order to be a member. For example movers that are members of the Better Business Bureau show that customer satisfaction is of the forefront of their mind. In Canada, professional movers have the option of joining the Canadian Movers Association, which require strict guidelines to be followed. Lastly, many small moving companies team up with larger corporations such as North American Vanlines in order to serve customers requiring large international moves. Teaming up with larger corporations gives small moving businesses a stronger reputation and level of trust.
- Get 3 Moving Estimates
Make sure you compare apples to apples. Have 3 different moving companies come to your home and give you in house moving estimates. Speak with the moving agent and see if he or she is professional, courteous and friendly. You can gauge a lot about a company by the people they employ! Moving your house entails strangers to come into your home and pack up and move all of your belongings. ALL of your furniture, clothes and worldly goods. Make sure you hire a company that you can trust – that won’t sneak in hidden charges. There are many rouge movers in Vancouver who offer low cost moving services and then sneak in hidden charges. Homeowners are then forced to pay otherwise the movers hold their goods hostage – until these ridiculous chargers are paid.
If you do a bit of homework and stick with the 4 steps laid out in our moving checklist, you can rest assured that your move will be as stress free as possible
