Things to consider when choosing a moving company

Moving is among the most stressful things that people go through, it is difficult at the best of times to be faced with packing everything up and leaving the home you are comfortable with, but then having to turn everything over to a bunch of people you have never seen before can do nothing but make a bad thing worse. No one deserves this so, whether you are moving across the country or to the other side of town there are a few things you can do to gain a little peace of mind.

The first thing to remember is that a moving company in Lubbock TX is a service company, this type of company is actually hard to promote and advertise as anything can be said but there is little or no proof. The best advertising for any service company is word of mouth. Start asking people you know; perhaps friends at work or neighbors for recommendations as well as warnings of movers they have had hands-on experience with. If you don’t have any luck turn to a real estate professional, they are well aware of the movers in the area.

Once you have three or four names that look like good candidates give them a call, get the full name of the company and ask if they also have a “doing business as” name. Find out the length of time they have been in business, get their DOT license information and confirm they are fully insured. Doing business with a moving company in Lubbock TX that is licensed and insured provides you with certain protection that you would not have otherwise.

It is a good idea to call the local Better Business Bureau (BBB) and find out what their complaint record is and whether or not there are complaints that have been left unresolved. Although even the best mover can experience a complaint, the good movers respond immediately to the complaint and ensure that acceptable solutions are found.

Take the best two or three and make it your business to call in at their physical address, it is actually a good idea to drop in without an appointment because this will give you an opportunity to check their facilities in an “as-is” situation. Look for a company that keeps their buildings clean and orderly; look for a company that takes the time to answer all your questions in a friendly manner.

The final selection procedure is to have the company visit your home and provide you with a firm price to make the move, never accept an estimate over the phone.
