We have all of the moving and storage services you need.
1. Check out the moving company online.
It's an unfortunate fact that not all companies that claim to offer moving services are legitimate. Before you agree to hire a company, do a quick online search to verify their information. You should be able to easily find both the company's website and online reviews by customers. Beware of any salespeople who come to your home without identification or trucks arriving with no company name or logo. You can also visit consumer protection websites, such as the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's (FMCSA) protectyourmove.gov website for more information about researching a Melbourne mover.
2. Make sure the moving company is certified by the DOT.
When choosing a Melbourne moving company, it's always a good idea to look for a certified moving company. You can check a company's certification status on the U.S. Department of Transportation's (DOT) website. For your peace of mind, we make Suddath's certifications and affiliations easy to find, and we're always happy to answer any questions you may have.
3. Verify insurance and licensing.
You should also check to see if a prospective mover has proper licensing and insurance. A mover's license requirements are dictated by your destination: In-state moves will have different requirements than cross-country or international moves. It's also very important to verify that the moving company is insured to ensure your belongings and property are safe. You can verify insurance in the database of the U.S. DOT.
4. Request a free estimate.
Movers are required by the FMCSA to provide free, in-home estimates for your move. You should never have to pay for a moving quote.
5. Ask if the moving company's employees have had their backgrounds checked.
When you are about to invite a moving crew into your home and trust them to handle all of your belongings and be in the company of your family, you want to be certain that packing, loading and driving staff have undergone background and drug testing. For your peace of mind, every Suddath team member working on your move has passed these checks and has been extensively trained in the proper handling and safe transport of your belongings. Our team includes some of the best drivers in the industry—in fact, Suddath has garnered multiple United Van Lines Driver of the Year awards and earned recognition from the American Moving & Storage Association for our leadership in residential moving.
