What to Look For in a Long Distance Moving Company

by | Sep 3, 2023

Moving is a complicated process, even if you’re only moving across town.  When your move is long-distance, there are even more factors involved.  That’s why hiring a professional long distance moving company you can trust is so important.  Choosing can be difficult, which is why we’ve created this list of what to look for in a long distance mover.

Choosing a Professional Long Distance Moving Company

The first thing you need to know is that you only want to choose licensed and insured long distance movers.  When moving long distance, you want to be prepared for anything.  No matter how experienced and trustworthy your mover may be, you need to make sure your interests are protected with insurance.

Quality staffing practices is another very important factor.  Just because you may have a great manager or owner of the moving company speak with you originally does not mean that is the end.  If they do not have staff expectations and regulations in place, there’s no guarantee who will be handling your belongings.  It isn’t at all out of line to ask about the company’s hiring policy and what they expect from their employees.  At Brothers EZ Moving, we hire reliable employees who have been drug tested and screened.  

Transparent pricing is a major factor when choosing a long distance moving company.  Many long distance movers will try to bid your job low, then add on additional fees.  Or, they will underbid themselves and have to add extra staff and vehicles that you are not familiar with. You could even end up waiting because they are stretched too thin!  At Brothers EZ Moving, we give you a flat rate that will cover what it takes to get the job done efficiently and expediently.  We are affordable and fair, while still providing quality service- and there are no hidden fees.

One of the most important things you can do is check the reviews on your potential moving services.  A good reputation speaks to the integrity and experience of the business you are hiring.  Looking at online reviews is one quick way to do this.  In addition, ask your moving company for references.  Reputable moving companies will be able to refer you to at least one reference or testimonial that will let you know the experiences previous customers have had.

When you choose a long distance mover, you are trusting someone with your entire home.  Making sure that the service you choose is capable and responsible is a top priority.  If you ask the right questions, and make sure your basic needs are met by following the above guide, you can easily set your mind at ease.  If you have more concerns, call Brothers EZ Moving to answer all of your moving questions.

Adan and Fil were efficient and handled items with care. I would use them again.
These guys were great. Very polite and professional. Hard workers and the move went well with no damages!And Gary is very patient with me as I had difficulties trying to get him paid through Zelle and had to get a business check but he was very patient and we got it all figured out. I would recommend this company for local moves.
Highly recommend this company. From estimate to final move, we received the best service from the office staff who explained and answered all our questions and the 2 young men who moved us taking all precautions with our items. Thank you for your transparency and professionalism.
