4 things to consider when choosing a relocation company

Before choosing a relocation company, consider services, experience, customer service and reputation.

Relocation can seem daunting, and not all moving companies are created equally. Though most of them can get your household belongings from point A to point B, these are some addition things to think about when choosing a relocation company—whether you’re relocating locally, nationally or internationally,
 

1. Service offerings

Though many relocation companies offer similar services, find out if one company specializes in the type of move that you need. If you’re moving internationally, ask how many international moves they handle a year, for example. You may have a better experience when you choose to relocate using a company that understands your situation and can anticipate your needs.
 

2. History

Consider how long the moving company has been in business, and also how long they’ve been doing your type of move.  
 

3. Customer service

Make sure your moving company is responsive and communicates well.  At every step, you should thoroughly understand your move process, particularly at the quoting stage.
 

4. Reputation

The Internet has created a vast resource when it comes to customer reviews. Research moving company reputations before you choose one to help you relocate, and know the telltale signs of rogue movers and moving scams. Seek out people who have used the ompany before and ask for recommendations.
