Once you have verified a mover’s legal status, size up its reputation. Moving businesses spend a lot of money on advertising, trying to persuade you that they are the best pick. Don’t be an easy catch — remember that ads are skillfully designed to attract you and sometimes mislead you.
Recommendations from other people who have experienced the difficulties of moving can be valuable and trustworthy. When you comb through reviews of movers, pay attention to comments about companies’ attitudes throughout the entire moving process.
