3 Considerations When Shopping for Cross Country Moving Companies

Moving across the country can be a difficult and stressful experience. Finding new doctors, dentist auto mechanics; leaving behind family, friends and neighbors and, just being in a new environment, is a lot to handle. The last thing you want to do is hire the wrong moving company. Here is a quote from someone who hired the wrong company:

“They said it was going to be a few weeks until my stuff arrived, and in the end it took months. Meanwhile, I had a toddler who was literally sleeping on the floor because I called them at least once a week, and every single week they told me my stuff would arrive ‘in a few days,’ so I didn’t want to actually buy stuff. When I got the final moving docket, I learned that my goods had been stuffed in a warehouse in Albany for months, while they actively lied to me about how long it was going to take.”

Here are 3 things to consider when shopping for a cross country moving company:cross country moving services

  • Never Book On-line 

This is one of the worse mistakes to ever make. When an on-line quote is “too good to be true”, it always is. These tech-savvy shysters get deposits and often never show up. When/if they do, there are always problems with missing items, the bill and damages.

  • Keep All Jewelry and Small Valuables With You

Cross country moving companies almost always take advantage of homeowners who leave jewelry in drawers and small valuables out in the open. Almost all contracts will read “Not responsible for small valuable items” in small print.

  • Only Hire A Cross Country Moving Company That Is Highly Recommended or Has a Great Reputation

Cross country moving companies who can show that they have been in business for several years and, is highly recommended by others, is an indication that they will provide quality service at competitive pricing.
