3 Things You Must Demand From Your Moving Company

We’ve all heard those awful moving horror stories — a moving company shows up hours late, ruins your favorite carpet, breaks a family heirloom, and then charges twice what they initially stated in their original price quote. Moving in and of itself is stressful, and when the moving company messes up, it puts you at your wit’s end.

In order to prevent these kinds of nightmares from happening, we’ve put together a list of 3 things you absolutely must demand from your moving company to make sure your move goes smoothly.

  1. The moving company MUST have some sort of online presence. If a moving company does not have a website, that’s a red flag. If a moving company does not have online reviews or listed anywhere, that’s a MAJOR red flag and you should stay as far away from them as possible. Make sure to do your research – read online reviews (good and bad), look up the company’s Better Business Bureau Rating, and call to ask for referrals. (Read more about what you must research before hiring a moving company here.)
  2. The moving company MUST be licensed and insured. Your moving company not only should have the licensing and authority to perform your relocation, but they should also have the insurance to make it legal.
  3. The moving company MUST respect your budget. Don’t sign any blank paperwork. In your phone calls/emails with them, make sure to discuss your needs and timing, their pricing, and any anticipated difficulties. If you feel pressured into booking right away, steer clear! A truly reputable moving company will not bully you into moving with them. (At Bin It Moving, we offer a no-obligation moving quote! Just fill out the online form here.)
