When looking to hire a moving company, there are some fundamental qualities you should look for in a mover. How long have they been around? This is an important question. Local movers who do a high quality job will be in business for a while. You'll want ot talk to more than one person at the company. Ask about it's history. Is the owner around? An owner that cares about his business generally leads to a well run business.

Visit the facility! Is the office and warehouse professional looking? It should be! A clean and organized warehouse is a good clue that your belongings won't be lost.

What is best for your budget and time frame?  Small budgets and short time frames lead to limited options. To get the best value and service, plan your move early. For large moves, expect large budgets for high quality services.
