Tips on Hiring a Reliable Mover (even if you don't use us!)

You want to hire a mover you trust!


It is very important to follow these tips, as there is always a danger of hiring a company who is dishonest.

-Price: If the price is too good to be true, then it most likely is! Avoid being drawn in by overly low rates, as hidden fees may be a concern.

-Hidden Fees: Many companies charge hidden fees which they will not be directly mentioned, unless asked; stair fees, items over 100lbs fees, stretch wrap fees…

-Estimate: Don’t let a mover low ball the estimate. If they tell you, it will take 3 hours to move a 3-bedroom house, they are not being honest.

-Insurance: Many companies do not carry insurance. You have the right to ask the company for a copy of their cargo insurance document, proving that they are backed with at least $20,000 worth of insurance.

-Registered Business: Make sure the company you hire is registered (click here). An unregistered company might appear to be a regular, functioning business; however, they will often change the name on their internet ads. The company can attempt to scam you, then disappear under a new name. Fly-by-night movers do exist, so make sure the company is registered and insured!

-Binding Hourly Rate: The rate the mover quotes you should be Binding. Movers will often try to change the rates on moving day. Protect yourself against this. Always have something in writing, online or paper.
