Relocating a business is no small task — and the movers you hire can make all the difference in how smoothly it’s executed. How do you choose the best movers to hire? What should you look for in a moving company? Step one is that you have to know what to avoid.
Why is it so useful to understand common moving risks? Think about it: When you know what characteristics are warning signs, you can rule out the companies that aren’t worth hiring. You can avoid getting tricked into trusting a business that will disappoint you.
With that in mind, here are a few examples of what to do when comparing movers for your business:
- Be wary of pricing that’s too cheap. If a moving company’s prices seem too good to be true, they probably are. The savings you get upfront will often come back to bite you in extra costs.
- Don’t accept quotes on the phone. If a moving company is giving you an honest quote, it needs to understand your business size, its facilities, what needs moved, etc. — tasks that are challenging to comprehend when talking on the phone. If you get a quote via phone, there’s a good chance it will be inaccurate.
- Don’t believe everything you hear. When it comes to a business deal, it pays to be cautious. Don’t assume a company is licensed without getting confirmation from the organization or agency that provided it. Don’t believe promises unless you get them in writing.
