If you are moving are you going to do the move yourself or are you looking at hiring a moving company? Doing your move yourself or with friends and family is a big job and can add a lot of stress to your move. Of course sometimes working with a moving company can be a big stress adder as well. The key to keeping your move as low stress as possible, which can be difficult because moving is an inherently stressful time, is to make sure your are working with an above board and highly qualified moving company. Working with a moving company is generally easier than managing and conducting your move on your own and making sure that moving company has all its ducks in a line can further reduce your stress levels. So what does it mean to work with a good moving company?
First and foremost the only kind of moving company you want to work with is one that has all the necessary legal paperwork on file and available to view. This includes things like licensing and insurance. Without these two documents you are potentially subjecting yourself to a world of trouble. A moving company without proper licensing is breaking the law and the last thing you want is legal complications during your moving. Furthermore without insurance you may be unable to collect any money form your moving company should something happen to your possessions during the move. This is a nightmare scenario for most movers and one that should be avoided at all costs. Even though those cut rate movers that you are looking at seem like they would be able to save you a few dollars up front take a moment and think about the true cost of doing business with a moving company like that.
