In the good old days, people used to look for moving companies in the yellow pages. Nowadays, people go online to search for their relocation company. Each basic search will offer you with dozens and dozens of results. But how can you tell the difference between legitimate movers and shady business that decided to open an internet page? This new Alpha Moving and Storage article will help you answer this question.
Your initial internet search should be specific rather than general. For example, if you are searching for movers in the NJ area, type “NJ Movers” in the search box. Trying broad and general search terms such as “Moving Companies” will provide you with a large number of irrelevant results.
Once you have conducted your initial search, it is time to select between three to five moving service providers. Check the individual websites of the most suitable results. Make sure that each of the companies has all the proper license numbers and is registered with the Better Business Bureau.
Because anyone can start an internet web page, comparing prices and reputation is possibly the most crucial stage. Each company should provide you with a written estimate. It is highly important to request each mover to send a representative to your house and provide you with an on-location estimate. This is especially true when you locate your potential movers via the internet. Additionally, you can coordinate a visit to the company’s main offices. Ask your estimator to be present and show you the trucks, facilities and storage area.
