Where Should I Search for a Long Distance Service Provider?
Your search should combine on and off-line searches. The best way to go is to get referrals from friends, neighbors and relatives. A good old-fashioned recommendation between friends can prove very useful. One you have obtained several such referrals, you can go online and check the reputation of each moving service provider. More on that below.
How Can I Check My Long Distance Service Provider’s Reputation?
You can check the reputation of each potential moving service provider you are considering by going online and visiting the Better Business Bureau’s website. It is important to check not only the number of complaints the relocation service has, but the effort it makes in order to resolve such complaints. Our recommendation is that you avoid using a mover that has a large number of unresolved complaints with the Better Business Bureau.
When and How Should I Make my Selection?
As to the question of when, you should try and make your long distance moving reservation at least three-to-five weeks before your moving date. As to the question of how, compare the bottom line price, the basic charge unit and the potential added fees, then make a decision based and all the above comparisons.
