WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN HOUSEHOLD MOVERS

As one of the best home moving companies in the business, we know first-hand what services the top companies provide.  At Nelson Westerberg, we’ve moved families across the street and around the country.  We know a thing or two about how to make any residential move a success.  Before booking a home relocation company, make sure that the business you choose can provide you with the four following things.

1. LICENSE AND INSURANCE

First and foremost, make sure that the household moving company you choose is a licensed, insured mover.  To find out their status, locate your company’s USDOT (US Department of Transportation) number, usually posted on their website.  With this number, search the Federal Motor Carriers Safety Association (FMCSA) website for the company’s insurance information, licensing, and compliance history.  Before you ever sign with a company, make sure they are legally equipped to transport your goods safely.

2. A FLEET OF TRUCKS OF ALL SIZES

The best movers have trucks of varying sizes to best suit your moving needs. You need to have a truck that fits all of your goods, and packs them in securely.  Check to make sure that the moving company that you choose has trucks the right size to move your residence, whether that’s a one-bedroom apartment or a six-bedroom home.  Truck sizes vary from 10 feet to 26 feet in length. Make sure the company that’s moving your home has the right sized truck to get the job done.  

3. COMPLETE HOUSE MOVING SERVICES    

Look for a business that can fully support your household move from one address to another. The best companies will be able to supply you with all of the packing materials to safely stow your items, from bubble wrap to boxes and wrapping tape.  Need help packing?  The top businesses can help with that.  Some companies even offer a white glove packing option, a service that provides movers to completely pack, move, and unpack every single item in your home.  Finally, if you need storage solutions during a move, the best house movers can provide that, too.

4. A PERSONALIZED QUOTE

Premium companies always look at your space and your goods before committing to a quote.  They will either send out a representative or ask for video of your home to see your space virtually.  When you’re trying to find the best moving company, make sure that they will be able to provide you with an accurate quote by viewing your home—and all of your goods– first.
