4 Questions To Ask Yourself Before Selecting A Moving Company In Atlanta

If you’re moving across state lines or just thirty minutes away from your old spot, you may choose to hire a moving company to cut down on the stress and costs of moving. If you decide to go this route, let me be the first to tell you that there will be tons of moving companies to choose from.

Don’t stress yourself out trying to figure out which moving company to hire. Take a deep breath and ask yourself these four questions as you narrow down your list. 

1. Is there a minimum charge for your move? 

Many moving companies in Atlanta will require you to pay a two hour minimum charge for their services.

Questions to ask yourself:

Can my move be completed under two hours?

2.Are you required to put down a deposit?

Many top moving companies in Atlanta will require you to put down a deposit to reserve your upcoming move. Moving companies that require a deposit usually will charge you a percentage of the estimated cost of your move. 

Questions to ask yourself:

-Will I have the money to put down before my move?

-How much am I required to put down?

-Will I get my deposit back if I need to cancel my move?

3. What does your move include? 

Moving companies are not created the same. Let me repeat that. Moving companies are not created the same. What one moving company may offer you, will be different from what the next moving company will offer you. Make sure you have a full understanding of what’s included in your move when choosing your moving company. 

Questions to ask yourself:

-What is it that I want my moving company to provide?

-Do I want to pack/unpack my own boxes?

-Do I want to deal with disassembling and assembling my own furniture?

4. How are they rated online? 

Top moving companies in Atlanta should have plenty of reviews for you to sift through. Reviews are awesome because you can get an idea on how they’ve treated past customers. 

Make sure to pay attention to the critical reviews, but don’t forget to take into account the good reviews they’ve received also.

Questions to ask yourself:

Is there a common complaint in the reviews?

How many bad reviews do they have?

What are the good things people are saying about the moving company?

    It was nice that you suggested checking the reviews of the moving company that you’re interested in so you can gauge how they treat their past customers. My husband and I are looking to hire a long distance moving company. We want to make sure that we’ll be treated fairly by the long distance moving company that we will hire, so we’ll be sure to only deal with a long distance moving company that’s highly rated by their past clients.

    I like that you suggested reading reviews about the moving company that you’re interested in so you can get an idea how they treated their past clients. My husband and I are moving to a new place soon. We’re interested in hiring an in-state moving company that will make us feel valued because we want to ensure that moving won’t give us so much stress. Thanks!
