Selecting A Moving Company

Aug-9-2013 By Barbara Zak

Moving can be a stressful time in your life. However, with the help of professional movers like those found at a Montreal moving company, the job can be a lot less stressful. When looking for a professional mover, there are several things that you will want to keep in mind.

Before hiring a professional mover, get a list of recommendations. Friends and local real estate agents can give you a list of possible choices. You should also look in your local phone book. Once you have compiled a list of potential movers, go online and do a background check. Pay close attention to any negative reviews the company may have.

Next, dwindle your list down to three or four companies. Call each company and ask for an in-home estimate. Do not rely on estimates that may be listed online. When the company arrives to do the estimate, show them all the items that will be moved. If you fail to show them everything, you may be faced with a higher than expected bill. Ask what packing materials will be provided. After reviewing all of the estimates, select the moving company that best fits your needs. Be leery of bids that are significantly lower than others. Finally, ensure that the company you choose is fully licensed and insured.
