Terms and Services to Expect From the Best Moving Companies

Staff Writer · Nov 10, 2009

Households looking for a relocation to a new home have a lot of options to choose from with either local, long distance or international moving and storage companies, but when they are able to choose the best moving companies around, customers are better positioned to get more for their buck.

Here are some of the things that you can expect from superior moving companies in your area. Look for these signs of good professional service to find businesses you can rely on for any distance.

Clear and Reasonable Rates

When you find reliable, superior local or international moving companies, you’ll find that they consider the client by providing clear up-front pricing to avoid misunderstandings on moving day. The rate offered might not be the lowest one around, but with the best moving companies, you can rely on honesty and price inclusions to be sure that that price doesn’t spike when garnished with a whole list of extras after the job is done. You’ll also avoid what some call a “freight hostage” situation, where dishonest moving companies pull you in with a low rate and then jack up the price when you’re household possessions are already loaded on the truck.

A Clear Time Frame

Part of the cost of a move is in the time that it takes. Customers have often taken care to synchronize their trips with movers as part of a moving day checklist. A late truck situation can have a disastrous effect on a moving plan. The best moving companies save you money by considering your time, and showing up as promised.

Damage Control

Another very important aspect of moving is in the protection of goods and possessions during transit. What you’ll find with the best moving companies is skilled personnel who will wrap furniture and other items in moving blankets, apply straps or braces with precision, and effectively pad all of your possessions for the trip ahead. Workers will also use care in and around your home (i.e. on steps, through doorways, etc.) to avoid damage to your items or your residence.

Courteous and Professional Staff

Another of the main services that you can expect from superior moving companies is a crew that operates with the appropriate care for your family. With the best crews, you may never know that they were there at all. Moving companies that build superior customer service into their plan will thoroughly instruct employees on how to handle moving day. When employees are trained not to mess up your house, disturb the domestic environment with loud noise or otherwise aggravate clients, the company demonstrates a superior attention to customer care that can go a long way in the residential moving business.

Looking for moving companies can be tough, but a detailed personal interview with representatives can get you a good picture of how these shops will handle your relocation. More research before the move can mean a happier transition, and less hassle when you have to settle up with a moving company.
