Start by simply asking people you know. Almost everyone has gone through a move at one time in their life, so all you need to do is ask around among your friends, family and those you work with to a few recommendations for a quality Scottsdale moving quote and movers company.
Talk to the real estate agent that helped with the sale or purchase of your home. A real estate agent can be a good source of information because they often know about the experiences of their past clients.
If you’re planning a local move, look for moving vehicles that are working in your city. You know there’s a reason why they’re so busy if you repeatedly see the trucks and vans of a specific Scottsdale moving company.
Check the internet. Most moving companies have a website that will list their services, years in business, geographical areas that they cover, and even work sheets to help you get an idea of what it will cost you.
You can find their contact information including an email address in-case you have any questions you want to ask before talking with them further. You can also use the internet to do some initial background checking on any Scottsdale moving company.
Once you have your list of moving companies in hand, contact the Better Business Bureau to find out if any of the companies have had any complaints filed against them. Considering the volume of business a Scottsdale moving company handles it’s not unusual for a company to have a few complaints, but the important thing is to find out exactly what the complaints were and if they were taken care of to the customer’s satisfaction.
Before you start talking with any Scottsdale moving company, you should make a list of how many rooms to be moved, if you have any unusually large, bulky or odd shaped items and don’t forget about the garage, and patio furniture.
You don’t need to be exact. It’s just to give the Scottsdale moving company an idea of what to expect.
