Right Mover's Anaheim moving company truck in action!

If you are looking for an Anaheim moving company to help you with your move, whether it is a residential or commercial move, we would love the opportunity to work with you. However, we know that it is not about us, it is about you finding the mover that is right for you. To help you along in that process (full disclosure – we hope that you decide we are right for you!) we have an article for you to help you with the steps that you need to do in order to choose the right moving company.

Unfortunately there are a lot of bad moving companies out there and you want to make sure that you do not get stuck with one. We hear horror stories all the time (some right here in Anaheim) about people’s moves going incredibly wrong. Here are 4 things that you should do before your move to make sure that you do not end up with a horror story!

#1 – Get Recommendations from Friends and Family

The best place to start the search for a good Anaheim mover is to ask your friends and family who handled their move. If they were happy with the moving company that did their move, that is a great first step in finding your mover. We would really recommend finding 3-4 well recommended moving companies before you move on to step 2. Of course, you may not be able to get recommendations of 3-4 movers from your friends and family. If that is the case, head over to Yelp and find a company that has great reviews. Make sure to read over the reviews to make sure that they look real. The last thing you want is to find the company that only has good reviews because they had employees, friends, or family write them.

#2 – Get In-Home Estimates

Once you have your list of 3-4 companies, it is time to get estimates. You do not want phone estimates! There is n way that a good moving company can estimate the time that it will take, the amount of trucks needed, the amount of manpower necessary, etc. without actually seeing your belongings. Insist on an in-home estimate. If the company is unwilling, cross them off of your list. The phone estimate is the favorite tactic of the moving scam artist – they will quote you a low price, show up and look at your stuff, and make up a reason that they have to charge you MUCH more than your estimate. And of course, since it is moving day and you are under the gun, you either pay or have to scramble to find another way to get your stuff moved. In-Home, in writing estimates are the way to go!

#3 – Don’t Decide on Price Alone

Price is important. You don’t want to pay more for the same service. However, all moving service is not the same. The quality of the packing, the care that the movers take, and their cleanliness in your old and new home are just a few of the things that set movers apart. If you are moving valuables, it makes sense to choose the company that you get a good feeling from, and who you feel will stand behind their work – even if they cost a little bit more. Most of the horror stories that we hear start with the homeowner choosing the cheapest  moving service…

#4 – Check Their License and Insurance

Make sure that the Anaheim moving companies that you have do your estimates are licensed and insured. You want to make sure that your things are protected if something goes wrong in the move. And do not just take their word for it – ask to see it in writing so that you can be sure that you are protected.


You want to make sure that you choose the right moving service. You want your stuff to arrive safely and you want both of your houses to be left clean and undamaged. Choose a moving company that you feel will offer you all of this at a reasonable rate.
