3 Signs You are Working With a Reliable Moving Service
We know that the belongings in your home are meaningful, costly, and/ or have sentimental value. Here at Totable, we are committed to making your home moving experience a pleasant one. Keeping your items safe and making sure you have a positive experience as a homeowner or renter are our top priorities. Before you commit to a moving company, you should be sure that they are reliable and trustworthy. Ignoring the ominous signs is an easy way to get caught up in a scheme or shady deal. However, here are three signs that you are working with a reliable moving service.
1. Professionalism and Transparency
You’ll want to be sure that the moving company you hire is professional. You also want to stay away from those shady moving companies that don’t actually have any licenses or qualifications. If you get the slightest impression that the movers won’t take care of your belongings or are trying to hide something like a hidden fee or shady scheme, don’t use them. Working with trustworthy and professional movers is essential. After all, the job involves people you don’t know coming in and out of your home.
2. Moving Insurance and Licenses
Legitimate moving companies need to be insured and licensed. If not, the moving world would be a free-for-all, and it would be difficult to find honest and trustworthy companies. When a moving service does not have these qualifications, you could run into a big problem if something becomes broken or stolen. Avoid this potential problem by only working with moving companies that are licensed and insured. Check out our Certificate of Exemption and Insurance Certificate.
3. Address and Office Hours Available
If the moving company you will potentially hire doesn’t have an address or phone number to talk to a representative, this isn’t a good sign. Avoid hiring movers that you aren’t able to easily contact. If something goes wrong during the move and you aren’t able to connect with the company, it could be a messy and long process to attempt to get compensated. At Totable, our office hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Totable movers operate 7 days a week, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Visit our website or give us a call at (919) 424-1498 for address, office hours, and contact information.
