  • safety and insurance of your goods;
  • your budget and;
  • packing / equipment needed, if any.

One of the most time-consuming, but yet important aspects of your move, is picking the right service provider that will take all of this into consideration.

Let’s take a look at some points to ponder when selecting moving services New Jersey.

What are their reviews like?

While we want to be trusting that people will always do business efficiently and keep all their customers happy, this is not always the case. Reading some reviews on the moving company you are considering, can be helpful to understand the level of service provided to those with first-hand experience already. Companies who hold mostly 4 or 5 star reviews, with positive feedback from their customers, would be best to consider.

Do they have a solid track record?

Your move day has crept up on you, and when your movers arrive, you notice that the vehicle / equipment is not what was promised. This might add some extra levels of stress on an already trying day. Ensuring your chosen movers have a good track record and is already established, will ease your mind. You certainly want to choose a service provider that is professional, reliable and will honor their agreement with you. Movers with a wealth of experience will minimize the typical chaos attached to relocating.

Are they licensed and do they provide insurance?

The New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs will license movers, monitor their activity and provide punishment for those who don’t abide by the law. Therefore, ensuring your movers are licensed will certainly make things a lot easier if you run into any problems. Those who can also offer you insurance on your goods will also be a reliable option, as it will ensure the safety of your goods, should anything happen along the journey to your new home / office. Selecting a licensed and insured provider will make you feel content with the safety of your belongings.

Are their rates crystal clear?

Your quote should be very clearly structured, with all costs laid out in a manner that you are able to understand.

Do they offer tailor-made services for your needs?
