Choose a moving company not a broker.

Brokers are in the business of selling and arranging moves for movers that bid for your move information. Removing the middleman may help you avoid the blame game should you need assistance during or after the move.

Choose a company regulated by the industry.

Weigh the risk of hiring people off a listserv or group who do not use employees that are insured and bonded. Harm to your premises or a mover injury will financially fall on you if they are not insured.

Ask for DOT and Motor carrier licenses to ensure a mover is complying with federal and state regulations and if moving long distance check for a American Moving and Storage Association (AMSA) endorsement.

Choose a company recognized by consumers.

The Better Business Bureau, the long standing indicator of quality, gives you the benefit of reviewing a company’s track record. When reading consumer review sites take into consideration the tone of the review and how the company responded.

Choose a company for the right price.

Reputable movers know they don’t quote the lowest price and you don’t want them to. Asking for a rate per hour or price per pound may not ensure a valid comparison of services performed. Invest your time upfront getting free written estimates from several movers to avoid surprises in the end that you don’t have the money or time for.

Top Rated, Highly Recommended

I used Beltway Movers for an office/corporate move. Bill was extremely helpful, easy to work with, and was quick to respond to my calls/texts. The group of guys that moved us were awesome! They came in and got the job done quickly and efficiently! We'll be using them again when we move to our permanent office space. Thanks Beltway and Bill!

Beltway movers did a fantastic job helping me move furniture and other items at short notice. They were super responsive in general. I appreciated that they very careful wrapping and moving antique furniture. They went above and beyond. Highly recommended.
