Our brand new Buena Park moving company truck

So you bought or rented a new house and you are excited about moving into the new place… and then it hits you – you are going to have to move ALL of your stuff to the new place. You look out into the driveway and see that neither of your cars are going to do much good. You have a couple of friends with trucks, but do they want to spend a couple days lugging all of your stuff around? So you need to hire a Buena Park moving company. How do you go about picking the right one?

It is a great question to ask because there are a lot of scam (or just really bad) moving companies out there. However, I’ll give you some things that you should ask your moving company before you even think about hiring them. You are trusting this company with all of your belongings and you want to make sure that they arrive at the new place, safely and in one piece AND that they don’t charge you an astronomical price to do it.

5 Question to Ask any Buena Park Movers

1. How long have you been in business?

This one is obvious, but many times we forget to ask. It is important to choose a company that has been around for a little while so that they have enough experience to move your things safely. You don’t want the company to “learn” with your things. You want a moving company that has seen it all before and will know exactly what to do in any moving situation.

2. Are they licensed and insured?

Technically this is two questions in one. You want to make sure that the company that you choose has a US Department of Transportation number (and make sure it is a valid number!) if you are moving across state lines. If you’re staying in California, make sure that the company has a Cal T license. Insurance is also important for obvious reasons. It is a move and anything can happen (no matter how good or how careful your moving company is). You want to make sure that you are covered if anything is lost or broken.

3. What do their rates include?

Rates can be figured in many different ways. Make sure that you ask questions and fully understand the rates and get an estimate in writing. If they provide references, make sure that you ask them if they stuck to their estimate. Many moving companies in Buena Park will give a low estimate and then raise their prices dramatically once they show up to actually do the move.

4. Do they have reviews online?

Of course you want to check the references that they give, but an unscrupulous moving company can give anyone as a reference. But companies do not have control over what is written about them on sites like Yelp and Google+. Make sure that you look on sites like that and see what the reviews are like. Of course a single bad review shouldn’t keep you from using a company. You should look at what the general consensus is and how the company replies to any negative reviews.

5. Do they do estimates over the phone or in person?

You have unique items. You want to choose a moving company that will take the time to do an in-home estimate so that they know what they will be moving. This allows them to give a much more accurate estimate and keeps you from getting any surprises on moving day.
