Moreover with increasing number of scams in the moving business, getting a company that has a good reputation as well gives you service in reasonable price gets tough.

Before you hand over the task of relocating your possessions to a moving company, it is desirable you do an intensive research about the moving company. After all, the safety of your possessions is at stake. Moreover, you will be paying handful of bucks to the moving company to carry out the job for you. You should get full value for the money you are paying to the company. So before you decide to hire a moving company, know it well. Here are some points that you need to find out about the moving company before engaging it for the task of relocating your home or office.

Check if the moving company you plan to hire has a valid registration with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Any company which does not have the registration of this bureau does not have the license to shift your stuff. Check if the company has any complaints filed against it. Check if the moving company sends a representative to your place to make a moving estimate. It should be known just getting a moving quote from a company is not sufficient.

The moving quote is based on the average weight or volume of the items in the list that you provide to the moving company. Only a moving estimate can give you an idea of what your final bills will be. Beware of moving companies that insist on settling the bills later.

Make sure that the moving company you plan to hire gives you a written copy of moving estimate. According to the guidelines of Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, both the moving company as well the consumer should have the copy of written moving estimates to avoid any disputes in the final billing.
Ask the moving company, if it offers the "dispute settlement program". If it does, it is one of the reliable companies you can go for.

Check if the moving company you plan to hire offers insurance of your goods against theft as well as breakage. Most if the reliable moving company will offer insurance. Take advice of your friends as well as other family members if they had any poor experience about the moving company you plan to hire.
