Choosing the right moving company is very important when you're getting ready to move. You want to make sure that your belongings are safe and in good hands. The professional residential movers at Thomas Transfer & Storage want to make the process of choosing a reliable moving company a little easier for you. To help you hire a reputable and experienced moving company, we've compiled a list of the top questions to ask.

How long have you been in business?

Asking a company's level of experience or expertise will help you determine if it can meet your needs.

Can I see reviews from your previous customers?

You can learn more about any moving company by looking at their customer feedback or reviews. Furthermore, if they can't provide you with feedback from their previous clients, they could either be hiding negative customer experiences or lack of experience.

What can you tell me about your facility?

A professional moving company will be sure to describe any storage facilities they have and the location of their main office.

Do you have any affiliations?

One final way to make sure you will be working with an experienced and professional long-distance mover is to find out if they belong to any trade groups or are affiliated with any major partners.

What safety precautions do your movers take with customer property?

Professionals in this industry are specifically trained to ensure the safety of your belongings. Therefore, it is recommended that they be equipped with protective equipment, like blankets, boxes, paper, or plastic wrap.

Can you explain how you calculate your quotes?

A trustworthy contractor should be able to explain how they determine pricing on the written estimate of the proposed work. They also should clearly state whether the estimate is binding or non-binding.

Can you explain your claims process?

Moving professionals should be able to execute a plan for addressing customer property damages. They should also be able to explain that plan to you.
