You can start in 2 ways: online screening of the market or by getting recommendations. You can ask friends, relatives, neighbors, coworkers and local real estate agencies. You can use the recommended names for your online research.
Check the website of Better Business Bureau, call or e-mail the American Moving and Storage Association (AMSA) to see if the companies are members or not. AMSA members abide to the tariffs published by the organization. Also, check the complaint registries of the moving companies.
You should start with 10 moving companies and after thoroughly examinations, you should remain with only 3 or 4 companies on the list. You may want to get an evaluation of your items. Ask for an in-person evaluation. Companies will be more than happy to send you an evaluator in order to get an estimate.
You should also ask for more details about shipping procedures, number of workers, moving fees, needed moving supplies and moving gear. Companies are also obliged to give you a copy of “Your Rights and Responsibilities When You Move.
Before the day of the move, the mover should provide a copy of the written estimate, a copy of the order of service once it has been both signed by you and the mover and contact information for complaints.
On the move day, you should receive a copy of the Bill of Landing/Freight Bill upon pick-up and a copy of the same bill completed upon delivery.
