It’s stressful enough to move to any city without the help of a poor moving company. No matter if you’re moving across the country or need long-distance moving services you want your moving company that values your business to do the job right.
Before hiring a moving company, it is important to do your research. We at long distance mover provide transparent services and believe in customer satisfaction.
Before you sign any contract, it is important to do some research on the moving company. You can avoid a poor moving experience by spending some time researching the best-rated moving companies.
These are four simple steps that will help you avoid having a bad experience when moving.
Online reputations and research reviews
Start your search by simply searching Google for the service that you need. You might search for “Best International Moving Company” if you’re moving to another country. Next, check out the online reviews and reputations of any companies that you find in the results.
Google does a great job of including reviews for each company in its search results. It is worth taking the time to review each company’s positive and negative reviews. This will give you a better idea of how each company performed during each review.
It is important to review the rating, not just the rating. There are many reasons why people might have a bad experience with a moving company.
Check out the information about the moving company
Online organizations can help you avoid scams and hire trustworthy movers. We are one of the companies that participate in this program. They provide local and interstate moving services. Before they can display the ProMover logo, each member must pass background checks.
Also, you should search for safety records and complaints against the moving company. You can also find their contact information on the Department of Transportation website. You should also check safety records and verify that the contact information on the DOT website matches the one on the moving company’s site. It should be a red flag that the contact information on the DOT website matches that on the moving company’s website.
FAQs for your Moving Company
After you have done your research online about the company, you should contact them to schedule your move. We have dedicated customer service representatives who are available to answer any questions about their services. This service is only offered by reputable moving companies.

You should choose the right type of moving estimate
Understanding the estimation process is crucial when researching long-distance or international moving services.
Scam artists and rogue moving companies might try to entice you with low-ball estimates that are too good to be true. Before you sign any contract, it is crucial to understand the language and compare your quotes.
These are the three types of estimates that moving companies offer:
Non-Binding estimate: This quote is based on the customer’s estimated weight. Avoid this type of agreement as the final cost of your move will be higher after your belongings have been officially weighed.
Binding Estimates: This is when a mover promises a fixed price estimate based upon the weight of your belongings. This type of estimate will let you know upfront the total cost of your move and the carrier cannot change it at any time. Although this estimate isn’t the most accurate, it will give you peace of mind as you know exactly how much your long-distance move will cost.
Guaranteed Not-to-Exceed Estimate: The most requested estimate type for local or interstate moving customers is the Guaranteed Not to Exceed Estimate. This estimate type provides a price quote that you will pay regardless of the actual weight or estimated weight. This estimate is not binding. However, it is different from the non-binding one. If your load is lighter than you estimated, you will only be responsible for the actual shipment weight. You could end up paying less for your move than you originally agreed to.
As a local or long-distance customer, the most important thing to do is research and vet your chosen moving company. We are committed to customer satisfaction and will ensure that you have the best possible moving experience.
