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

Bill was excellent in both estimating and explaining the move, which entailed working with multiple people and delivery points. Follow up from the office was very professional, questions and concerns were answered promptly, and paperwork was thorough and easy to understand. Beltway is clearly a team operation, and a winning one at that. I would absolutely use Beltway again, and especially commend Caesar, Rene, and crew. I chose Beltway based on the promises made, and from start to finish, they did everything they said they would, and more. The team clearly understands the moving process from both a psychological and logistical standpoint

The packing team and the moving team both arrived exactly when they said they would with the size crew they needed and all the supplies they needed and did an amazing job.

They were so quick obviously. They were very nice and helpful. And my wife specifically liked how they would talk out loud about their own safety and about protecting the walls and floors. Very amiable. Loved the experience!
