Ask for recommendations

The first step in finding a moving company is to ask around for recommendations. Approach friends, family, and local real estate agents to start an initial list of businesses they have used successfully in the past and that have their “seal of approval”.

Do a little research

Once you have your list, perform an initial screening. Don’t worry, you don’t need to be an expert searcher for this. However, a quick background check online will confirm whether your candidates are

  • licensed
  • bonded
  • insured

Check the company’s website, and you can also use these resources for further information:

For your information: The American Moving and Storage Association (AMSA) is an organization in which members agree on specific tariffs and to participate in the association’s arbitration program. However, AMSA membership is voluntary and a moving company shouldn’t be automatically ruled out, just because they are not a member here.

Check the reviews

You have probably already come across several reviews during your research so far. If you have not done so yet, check the company’s reviews on their Google and Yelp profile (provided they have one). Make sure there have not been too many complaints.

Contact the company

By now, you should have a shortlist of a few candidates with information like:

  • Full company name and any ‘doing business as’ names
  • How long they have been in business
  • Phone number(s)
  • E-mail address(es)

(You can take your verification process even further by checking out the address listed for the company in person.)

The next step is to contact the company to ask any remaining questions and get an estimate for your move. At Brothers EZ Moving, such an estimate is FREE! Simply call us or send us a message!
