Monthly Item of Value: How to Hire a Moving Company

how to hire a moving company part of july e-reportIt is important to know how to hire a moving company before making the big move. The company you hire can make a difference in whether your move goes smoothly or not. Do your homework before you make a commitment.

Ask around, friends, coworkers, family members, and find out what companies they used and how it worked for them. Knowing a person who has had personal experience is always helpful.

Get a written, digital or paper, estimate before moving forward. An estimate is just that, but it’s a good guide.

Do some online research. Read revues, check out their credentials. Make an informed decision.

Learn all about hiring a moving company with my monthly item of value for July.
