How to Find a Moving Company You Can Trust


While moving can be a draining and difficult chore, it’s something that we all have to do at some point. It is a physically and emotionally demanding time for most families, which is why many turn to a moving company for professional, expert moving service.

But how can Phoenix area families find a company they know they can trust to treat their belongings and their checkbook kindly? Today, we’re going to look at some of the ways to find a great moving company.


In the moving industry, there is quite a bit of turnover. New hires aren’t always equipped with the expertise to move things. The more the crew knows how to move belongings safely, the more likely everything is to arrive in one piece.

Clear pricing

Hidden clauses, extra fees, and surcharges are the things which can make using a moving company a nightmare.

There are moving companies who will pack, load, and transport your possessions. Upon arrival to the scheduled destination, the price for the move suddenly changes. The contents of your home are held hostage in front of your new house while the moving company renegotiates their price. Such practices are a scourge on the moving industry.

Great online reviews

The things you want to hear in online reviews about the moving company you’re considering is that they work diligently and nonstop without breaking any of your precious belongings. That they are fair and the reviewer would hire them again. Of course, no company is going to have perfect reviews because of the nature of the review process. But a customer can watch for a repetition of certain words and phrases which indicate the company is careful and a good value.

Personal references

If you have friends or family who has used a moving company for their move, ask them about their experiences and how they were treated. Word of mouth is a powerful tool, and a way to discover how people you know were treated in a real-life situation.


Local company

Hiring a nationally known company is great if you’re moving across the country. But, if you’re moving across town or the state, hiring a local company means that the money you spend will stay in your community. If contributing to your local economy is something which is essential to your values, hiring local is a means you’re promoting a small business.
