To find the best moving companies, research the top movers in your area and ask yourself a series of questions, such as:

  • Does the company show up on time or are they late?
  • Does the moving company charge by the hour or is it a flat rate?
  • What are people saying about their movers?
  • Does the moving company offer insurance?
  • Does the company provide specific moving services, like packing or storage?
  • How does the moving company charge for long-distance moves?
