Moving is a big deal. It’s a major life event – a life changing event. So, choosing the right moving company is a very important decision you probably never thought you’d have to make.
The moving and storage industry is huge, and On the Move Moving and Storage is certainly not your only choice, even locally in a growing city like Murfreesboro TN.
So how do you know who to pick?
Well, there are a lot of things to look for, both positive and negative. We will help you navigate your choices and encourage you to make the best choice for your move.
A Cheap Moving Company is Not Always a Good Moving Company
Just like they say, you get what you pay for. When looking to move, it’s always a good idea to compare your options. Some people make price the most important factor, but that may lead you down a path that will cost you more money, time, and frustration down the road.
If a moving company is charging more for their services, it’s probably because they’re using highly skilled, qualified crew members and offering better quality services. On the Move of Murfreesboro, TN offers full service moving, including packing, loading, transportation, and unpacking, as well as custom-building crates for your belongings and any-term storage.
Find Out the Moving Company’s Actual Reputation
The moving company’s website will probably have some good information for you to work off of. There may be testimonials, lists of services, offers for a free consultation, and a physical address where you can go and see the facility.
Although, you can’t just take the company’s word for it. Most of us will take to the internet and read reviews for restaurants, clubs, even parks. So why not do the same for your moving company? Any business with a good reputation should have the reviews in digital presence to back it up.
Ask around. Your friends, family, and people from the area will likely have a good handle on local, reputable businesses. You’ll be much more likely to take the recommendation of someone you know personally than a stranger on the Internet or the business themselves.
Is the Moving Company Insured and Licensed?
This is a big one. You want to make sure you choose a moving company that is insured and licensed. You may be able to find reference numbers on the company’s website. Otherwise ask the company to provide you their Federal Motor Carrier (FMC) number, along with what services they are specifically qualified to carry out and are insured for.
Ask Specific Questions
Watch out for moving companies that waiver or cannot answer your specific questions. Ask about processes, best practices, and how well-trained their employees are. A well-established moving and storage company will have very specific answers to these questions and will be able to walk you through their process in an understandable way.
