Moving requires a lot of decisions and selecting the right mover is an important one. Choosing a moving company like Two Men and a Truck may be an alternative but may not be the best fit for your business or home moving needs.

Here are a couple of articles that we found that can potentially help you.

12 Steps to Hiring a Mover

  • Get recommendations
  • Do an initial screening
  • You should end up with at least three or four companies to call for an in-home estimate
  • When an estimator comes to your home, show him everything
  • Review the estimate
  • As you get estimates, collect them in a brightly colored (that is, hard-to-lose) moving folder
  • When you’ve gotten all your estimates in, compare the bids
  • Now check out the contenders in more detail
  • Next, make sure your moving company has the license and insurance it needs to move you legally
  • Finally, call the FMCSA’s Safety Violation and Consumer Complaints hotline
  • Now you can select a mover
  • On moving day, get a written copy of the mover’s inventory list
