Hi *|FNAME|*,

Thank you for considering ABC Moving Systems for your upcoming move!

Choosing the right moving company is one of the toughest decisions you may have to make.

Here is a list of our top 5 things to look for when hiring a moving company.

5 Tips For Hiring Movers


1. Make Sure They Are Licensed

Each state has its own licensing requirements for local residential moving within that state.

In California, movers must be licensed with the Bureau of Household Goods and Services (BHGS) in order to legally provide residential local moving services within the state.

If you're moving your residence across state lines, your moving company must be licensed with the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT).

ABC Moving Systems is licensed to provide local moving services within California only. Here is our License Info:

2. They Have Great Reviews Online

Nowadays, you can get a good sense of how a moving company operates by reading reviews online. Don’t just go based on star ratings, actually read the reviews to get a sense of pricing, what people are saying about the crew members, or how the moving company handles situations if something does go wrong.

3. They Hire Great Crew Members

A moving company is only as good as the movers they hire. Again, you can get a good sense of this by reading reviews online. The crew should be professional movers who have moving experience. They should have experience. Moving furniture and loading trucks takes skill and movers need to be trained to get the job done safely and efficiently.

4. Compare Quote Costs

One of the first rules when getting quotes from movers is to look at the cost of each one. Each one should be somewhat near the same cost if each estimator did their job correctly.

If you have a quote that is unusually low, that’s a red flag. It’s possible the company is not licensed and they are operating illegally. Or, it might be to lure you in and tack on additional fees afterward. Or, they could even have messed up with the inventory or misunderstood job requirements.

When receiving your quotes make sure the pricing is crystal clear and be suspicious of any quotes that are much lower than the rest.

5. Compare Details Of The Quotes

The more detailed the quote, the more likely the movers will be able to do the job for the quoted price. Remember, the quote is not the final price and the more detail provided, the more comfortable with the price you should feel. However, you are required to be completely open and detailed yourself with all the items you have and the services you require.

We hope this helps with your decision. If you have any moving related questions, feel free to give us a call anytime.

Thank you for the opportunity and we look forward to helping you with your moving needs.
