There are many different factors that you need to look at when you are looking to hire a moving company for your upcoming move. You need to verify that they are licensed and insured. You need to obtain estimates. And you need to talk to people who have used them recently. But, you may have no idea what you need you ask as you speak to a moving company's past clients or references. Here are a few of the important questions to ask.
Was the Estimate Close to Your Final Bill?
When you obtain estimates from a moving company, it is important to know that it is just that—an estimate. Unless the contract you sign states that the price is binding, the final price you are charged for the move may be higher or lower than the estimate. As such, when you talk to a moving company's past clients, you want to ask them if their final bill was close to the estimated price. Try to avoid hiring a company that low balls the estimate and then springs a higher price on you in the middle of the move.
Did You Encounter Any Problems With the Moving Company?
Another important question to ask as you speak to a moving company's references is whether there were any problems with the moving company. Were the movers on time? Were any items damaged during the move? Did everything go off without a hitch? You can't see examples of a moving company's past work. So talking to their previous clients is the best way to ascertain the experience you may have with any given moving company.
Would You Use the Moving Company Again?
The last question you will want to ask is whether they would use the company again and/or recommend the company to friends and family. Then be sure to ask why they have given the answer they did. Always look for a company that people have glowing reviews of and who has past clients who would use them again.
