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 booked a move with Beltway Movers after some changes to my plans meant that the original company I contracted could no longer manage my move. I had a great experience! Their quoting process was easy to understand and gave me a lot of confidence in the move. Troy, Donald, and the third gentleman whose name I didn’t catch did an excellent job - they were friendly, professional, efficient, and took great care with my belongings. At the end of the day, they saved me a good amount of money off the estimate. I definitely recommend this company!

Overall really satisfied with the level of care and cooperation from the move team. The process to obtain a quote was very thorough and honest and the expertise was very much appreciated as we needed to know a precise estimate of how much inventory would be moved in order to schedule the appropriate amount and size of self storage units. The sales director kept in contact with us leading up to the move day, answering our questions and updating the move plan as we learned more about our storage needs. Will definitely use them for our next move and highly recommend.
