To find trustworthy movers, you will need to know what to look for in good movers. You would not want just anyone handling your personal or professional items. Thus, these two characteristics are key to finding the right moving company in Utah.
How Can You Determine Qualifications?
Movers need certain credentials to be legally authorized to work in the United States, depending on if they will move between or within states. For interstate work, movers need the Department of Transportation (DOT) and motor carrier numbers (www.consumerreports.org). These should be on their website. For work within states, you will need to check the specific requirements. For Utah, a DOT number is required (www.fmcsa.dot.gov).
Other credentials to look for:
- Certification from the official ProMover program (www.consumerreports.org).
- Accreditation from the BBB (www.themovingblog.com).
Be Sure to Obtain Estimates
- Estimates provide more comprehensive expense information.
- A moving company’s estimate process helps you determine if you are being scammed.
- You can ask any questions you have before moving.
Choosing the right moving company limits unnecessary costs. You can obtain quotes, ask for in-home surveys, and then obtain estimates (www.themovingblog.com). You will want as much information as you can to determine a moving company’s reliability. If no representative wants to meet you in person for estimates, the company might be scamming you (www.consumerreports.org).
Taking the necessary steps to find a trustworthy moving company will be well worth it in the end. These steps will help you to minimize wasted time, stress, and money. Use these tips so that the company can give you the trustworthy service you deserve.
