About Moving Services

It takes time to find out about moving services in your area that can be relied on to take care of your valuable possessions. Start looking for a suitable moving company well before moving day, so you will have enough time to check its credentials and reputation. Professional moving services will also need time to make arrangements for your move.

Most people feel that they can get a better deal by approaching residential moving services directly instead of going through brokers. They feel that they will be able to avoid the commission that is paid to brokers for their services.

The fact is that a broker may offer you a better price than what you can get by approaching a moving truck company directly. This is because brokers are able to find out about empty spaces on trucks and to book them at highly discounted rates.

Even though the legal responsibility of the broker ends as soon as arrangements have been made with a household moving service, brokers may provide better customer service than movers.

There are household moving services that act as brokers and there are also brokers who own and operate their own trucks. It is best to compare moving quotes from several reputable moving services and brokers before you make a selection.

Don’t select a moving service only on the basis of the lowest moving quote. If you get a quote that is much lower than the others, make sure that there are no hidden charges involved.

You cannot be asked to pay more than 110% of a non-binding quote or 100% of a binding quote at the time of delivery. If any additional amount is payable, the mover will have to raise a separate invoice for it.

Non-binding quotes are the most common and they help to protect the interests of the shipper as well as the relocation moving service. Binding quotes ensure that you will know how much you will have to pay at the time of delivery. However, moving companies tend to add on a margin to binding quotes to offset estimation errors.

Interstate moving companies must be registered with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and have USDOT numbers. You can get information about interstate movers by entering their details on the website of the FMCSA.
