With over sixty years of experience in the moving industry, our professionals at Capitol Moving & Storage have seen and heard it all. We have heard the horror stories from past customers that ended up being scammed by other movers. We have heard the disappointment when someone’s valuables were either misplaced, stolen or ruined. We have also felt the excitement of a good move with quality movers and professionals of our own. At Capitol Moving & Storage, we believe that your well-being should always come first. That’s why we are offering up three questions that you should always ask your professional movers before you hire them.
Are you a Licensed Professional Mover?
One of the worst scenarios that people can easily find themselves in during a move is becoming a victim of a scam. Not only are your belongings capsized, the money that you spent for the move has gone with it. Asking your professional mover for a license number can greatly eliminate this problem. License numbers are issued by the Department of Transportation and can be checked on their web site.
Do you have References?
When you are deciding on the right professional mover, it’s important to do your research. Just because someone seems nice and professional does not always mean that you should trust them with all of your belongings. Your belongings are too precious to leave in a stranger’s hands without doing your homework first. Ask the professional mover for references and seek recommendations from those who have used them in the past. Many companies have online reviews and ratings to look at. Be sure to do a thorough job going over them and bring up questions to your movers if you notice a trending problem.
Do you have Experience with this Mover?
Even if they are licensed and have outstanding references, does it really mean anything if they’ve never performed your type of move? Have they been across the country? Have they moved furniture into a high-rise apartment? How do they handle parking? How would they handle moving items into a historic building or home? These are all very important when considering the right type of professional mover.
At Capitol Moving & Storage, we can confidently say that we have done just about every type of move imaginable. Our mission is to always provide safe, efficient and reliable moving services to each and every one of our customers.
