Hiring a moving company is the best way to help ensure that your move goes well. However, not just any old moving company will do. You have to find a quality moving company that really knows their stuff.
That can be harder than you think. Anyone with a moving truck can tell you that they’re a professional mover. How do you weed out the amateurs from the professionals?
Here are a few steps you can take to ensure you find the best moving company for the job.
The company history is the perfect place to start. You don’t want to choose a company that isn’t transparent about their history. If you don’t know how long they’ve been in business, it’s probably because they haven’t been in business for very long.
The number of years a company has been in business can be a good indicator of their dedication to quality service. Here at Morgan Manhattan, we’ve got over 160 years under our belt! That’s pretty impressive, but it isn’t necessarily the only thing you should focus on.
If the company hasn’t been in business for very long, take a look at the previous experience of their employees. You may discover that the company has only been in business for a few years, but the owner has decades of experience in the moving industry.
A quality moving company is proud to do what they do all day, every day. One way they show their pride, and dedication to the latest industry news, is by associating themselves with professional organizations.
Morgan Manhattan is a good example because we're members of:
- The American Moving and Storage Association
- The New York State Movers & Warehouse Men's Association
- The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration
High Customer Satisfaction Rating
Countless years of experience and tons of professional associations can't make up for a lousy customer experience.
At the end of the day, it’s all about the kind of service that a particular mover offers. To make sure you choose one that treats their clients like family, take a look at their customer reviews. Start with the reviews on the website. Then, check other sites to get a more complete picture of the service they offer.
