Long Distance Moves: How to Choose a Mover

Making a long distance move is an intimidating experience for most people. Approximately 35 million Americans will pack up their things every single year and make a move. Time is needed to pack down the items, wrap them in protective materials and load the boxes in a truck.

Jordan River East can make that process simple with our cross country moving service. We will pack, load, store and unload your items with care. A big move requires proper preparation and planning. Here are some things that will help you choose the right mover.

Does the Company Have Experience?

It is best to choose a moving company with plenty of experience. This will ensure that every employee who touches your belongings are highly trained to handle large and bulky boxes. Cheap moving companies hire amateurs who will cut corners and are indifferent and nonchalant about damaging your stuff. Choose a certified moving company with highly trained relocation consultants that are skillful, careful, and respectful of your fragile items while moving boxes.

Professional moving companies like Jordan River East with the proper experience will do the packing, loading and unloading for you. We understand the various elements of a move, such as factoring in weather conditions, making use of the environment and measuring the dynamics of the boxes. Moreover, we will stay professional during the move to ensure that your items arrive safely intact.

No Surprises or Hidden Fees

Hidden fees on the final bill at the end of a move can surprise any customer. Unexpected charges can cause a lot of headaches, confusion and even hostility between the customer and company. A legitimate moving company like Jordan River East offers fixed price contracts that inform you of all charges up front. You know how much you need to pay in the beginning. There are no hidden fees or surprise bills. Everything is straightforward and easy to understand.

Choose A Trusted Company

The best way to choose the right moving company is searching for trusted and reputable companies in the community. Here is a set of questions to decide if a moving company is right for you:

• Does the company have many positive reviews from satisfied customers?
• Does the company have enough trucks in their fleet to move all of my stuff?
• Does the company have the proper credentials that include DOT licenses or any bad marks on their record?
• What services does the estimate include?
• Does the company keep to a schedule and meet deadlines?
• Will all of my items arrive to the destination safely?
• Does the company offer fair pricing?
• Does the company have insurance if anything gets damaged? What exactly does the insurance cover?
• Does the company offer an all-inclusive service that includes loading and unloading the truck, storage, packing, transporting?
• What are the protective tools the company uses? Do they have bubble wrap or blankets that protects against scrapes and bumps?

Consult friends and family members to get their thoughts about a prospective company. Read the policy rules and fine print in the contract. Search for the moving company reviews from real people who used this service. Studies show that 82% of young adults read online reviews before making a purchase. You can call the moving company and ask a customer representative these questions.
