How to Select a Moving Company in South Florida
By The Good Greek

Hiring a moving company is one of the biggest pieces of the moving day puzzle. In South Florida, you have plenty of choices.

It’s important to have tips on how to separate the good from the bad (and the ugly). Consider these tips before starting your search to find the best South Florida movers.

In-Person Estimates

Reputable moving companies do not show up on moving day with no idea of how much you need to move, and they don’t try to figure it out on the telephone. Look for moving companies that send someone to your home to do an in-person assessment of your moving needs. That includes both looking at your belongings and talking to you about the details of your move. They also should provide a estimate that you can rely on.

Online Reviews

Everyone knows that online reviews aren’t always 100% accurate. Angry people (or even competitors) can attempt to hurt a local mover’s reputation. However, if you take the time to look over many reviews, you can get a sense of how a company has done with clients.

References and Testimonials

If a company has done an excellent job, they often will place reviews – often called testimonials – on their website. Again, you can look through them and see if common themes emerge. Look for details about cost, services, and how well the moving company followed through. Old-fashioned references also work – simply ask friends and co-workers you respect which mover they used.

Is The Mover a Full-Service Company?

This is extremely important. Like most people, you might think early on that you can handle many things yourself. And you very well may do that. However, it helps to have a full-service company that offers a full range of packing supplies, packing and unpacking services, disassembly and reassembly of furniture and storage services. You might need all of that by the time moving day rolls around.

Experience

Many movers advertise online and elsewhere, but that doesn’t mean they have experience in the field. It’s best to find a mover who has handled all kinds of moves. That means small apartments, condos, townhouses and large homes. Look for those who have been endorsed by local businesses they helped move. In short, you’re looking for a company that has a track record that provides a level of trust in their work.

Can They Move You Anywhere?

Another area to check out from the beginning is the company’s ability to move you anywhere. Some companies will only handle moves within South Florida, while others can move you across the state. If you’re moving from Miami to Los Angeles, you will need a company that has the proper licensing and insurance to move your belongings across state lines. This also applies to international moves. Few companies can handle all the above. Those that can are often the best choice, as they have experience in distinct types of moves.

Keep these tips in mind before you start you search for a South Florida moving company. Moving can be frustrating and stressful. Picking the right moving company can spare you from a lot of that frustration and stress.
