Finding the right moving company may seem like a daunting task, but it’s really important. But if you do a little research, you can find the best movers for your budget and needs. Here are some steps that can help you make an informed choice.
Ask around – Talk with friends, family and/or coworkers about their moving experiences. You may find a great company simply through word-of-mouth, or you may be warned away from the poor ones.
Get an in-person estimate – Avoid surprising additional expenses by having Jacksonville movers actually walk through your home before giving you the estimate.
Check their background – When you have your potential movers, call or visit the website of the Better Business Bureau and do a background check. You can also check with American Moving and Storage Association. It’s also a good idea to check consumer-advocacy sites like www.movingscam.com or www.ripoffreport.com. These sites have a blacklist of companies that have a history of consumer complaints.
