Before making any commitment, make sure the moving company is familiar with standard operating procedures. Do they provide estimates? Will they come out to the home to provide an estimate in person? Do they have useful paperwork that outlines fees and an itinerary? Do they allow clients to purchase insurance on carried items? Can they be contacted easily? Do they have a physical office with staff? These are all important questions to ask, and if the answer to any of them is “no,” then it’s time to find another service.
