Do Your Research
Although the internet may not make you feel as confident as a recommendation from your friends or family, it makes it easy for you to search what’s out there and compare the services and moving quotes of several licensed and insured moving companies that can carry out your move. Also look at complaint history, BBB reviews, and testimonials before making a final decision.
Friends & Family
Better than an online testimonial, your friends and family are the best reference for finding a mover. These are the people you trust the most. Good advice from a family member or friend can be extremely useful when searching for a moving company. You then can call the recommended moving company and get a moving quote.
Avoiding the Phone Book
By using the internet, you avoid the difficult task of finding a qualified moving company. All you have to do is compare, save, and make the final decision.
You can easily rummage though through the phone book and search for a mover but there are some red flags that you have to look for. Tediously calling each mover for a quote and asking qualifying questions can be tiresome. You may come across a company that you’re very pleased with, but that may take up a lot of time that you don’t have.
