Moving season is in full swing, which means you may be looking for a moving company to help ease the stress of your next relocation. While you have many different moving companies to choose from, it is very important that you find someone who is going to be experienced, trustworthy, and reliable.

We’ve earned a reputation for ourselves as one of the top companies in New Jersey, and know how difficult it can be to find a company that truly works for you—especially during the summer, which is peak season for moving.

In this article, we are going to look at some of the best ways to evaluate your next moving company—and how to find the services you need for a smooth and successful relocation.

Take Advantage of Free Quotes To Compare Prices

When it comes to moving to a new home, you are going to want to find the most cost-effective way of doing so. Moving expenses can add up, so it’s a good idea to set a budget and follow it from start to finish.

To make sure that you are getting the best deal available, you will want to get quotes from a few different moving companies and compare the prices. The most reputable moving companies will offer a no-obligation, free quote for your move. This is the perfect way to narrow down your search for the best rates.

Find Out Which Services They Offer

Another factor to consider when finding a moving company that best suits your needs is to look and see what type of services they offer and which are included in your quote. For example, for those who are going to need storage in between moves, you are going to want to find a moving company that has on-site storage facilities to safely store your valuables.

Also, doing your research on what services are included will allow you to compare the value of the cost of your quote. Some companies may offer more services for the same or lower prices.

Hourly Rates vs. Price Per Job

Taking a deeper dive into your quote, you may notice that some moving companies charge by the job and some charge by the hour. While you may get a better deal on your initial quote by paying by the job, there may be ways to cut some costs if they charge by the hour.

For example, if the moving company breaks down your move by the hour, you can easily check and see if your time is better spent doing a few of these tasks on your own, instead of having to pay the moving company to do so. The best moving companies will work with you to develop a personalized plan that fits into your moving budget.

Do Your Research with Online Reviews

In this day in age, you can find out just about anything about any company online. This makes it easy for you to compare each moving company by the number of online reviews that they have. While some companies may have reviews on their site, you can always check Facebook, Google, Yelp, and BBB for online reviews to get first-hand accounts of people who have used the moving companies. This will tell the true tale of how their customers felt that they were treated.

Stop In Or Give Them A Call To Check Their Customer Service

If you would like to take things into your own hands and see how they treat you as a potential customer, give them a call or stop by their business location to see how good their customer service is. You can find out a lot about a company by doing your own in-person research so that you can get determine whether or not the company is going to be the best fit for you and your move.
