Many customers make the mistake of checking only the bottom line price that various moving service providers offer them, without thoroughly checking their reputation. Unfortunately, numerous shady businesses intentionally lower their estimates to lure potential customers, then find various excuses to inflate them on the day of the move. This Alpha Moving and Storage article will show you how to avoid such an uncomfortable situation by checking the reputations of all movers you are considering.

Checking Licensing Information

The best way to check your potential mover’s licensing information is to ask for the license numbers, then go to the US Department of Transportation and The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s websites. Make sure that the company you are considering is in good standing and has no open complaints of violations.

 The Better Business Bureau

The Better Business Bureau should be able to give you a fairly accurate idea about the reputation of the mover you are considering. It is important to check not only the reputation of the moving company, but also the way it responds to complaints. A reputable company will always strive to resolve complaints. If you see that the company you are considering has a lot of unresolved complaints, this is normally a sign that you should steer clear of it.

 Asking for References 

References are important and you should definitely ask your potential mover for them. Reputable companies who have been conducting local and long distance moving for many years should have plenty of references to provide you with. Call or email a few of the references you receive and ask them to tell you about their experience with your potential mover.

    The quote process was very thorough and transparent. Alpha followed up to see if we had any questions prior to booking as well as called to confirm the … More moving date and time prior to the move. They showed up on time, were extremely careful and wrapped the furniture very well. The movers were hardworking - it was a long, hot day but they were pleasant throughout. Would highly recommend.

    Alpha Moving & Storage did a great job helping me move. Very professional and easy to work with. Detailed estimate let me know what to expect for … More pricing. They worked with my Building Management company to get all the details about the move ironed out so I didn't have to worry. The movers were fast, friendly and very careful with my things. Alpha Moving was the best choice for my move. I would definitely use them again!

    We spoke to several moving companies but Alpha was the only one who could confirm our highly desirable end of month date on short notice. They delivered … More an accurate flat rate and everything went smoothly on our move day. Our 4 person crew was personable, professional and very hard working and I will highly recommend this company in the future.
