Hiring Licensed And Insured Movers
When you get started looking for local moving companies and hiring movers, here are some tips. What you want to do is be pro-active, first thing to do during the busy moving season is to give moving companies enough lead time. In the busy season moving companies do book up very fast. The beginning and end of month are always the first to fill up, so make sure you are giving your moving company plenty of lead time. When you start calling around for estimates from moving companies always make sure that you are using a licensed and insured moving company. You can do this by asking for a US DOT number from the moving company and checking them out on safersys.gov. This website will show you if the company is licensed and insured to do local moving in your area.
Checking Reviews When Hiring A Moving Company
Now the next thing that you want to do is to research the moving companies that you are considering for your local move, you can do this by looking up the reviews.
