Get Three Quotes Based On A Visual Assessment
Whether Virtually or In Home, get three quotes based on a visual assessment.
If an estimate seems too good to be true, it probably is.
One of the biggest differences between a licensed mover and a broker/rogue mover is how they quote your move. Often the broker will cut out the most crucial step when booking your move. They quote you a price without ever having seen the scope of your job. A reputable mover cares about the details. They have to plan for allocating the right resources for each client and so details matter in order to service your move properly. On very small moves, such as a senior going into assisted living, a professional Mover may choose to book your move by phone.
Another red flag to spot a broker /rogue mover is to ask to see a copy of their certificate of insurance. It is the most telling way to know that the company you are speaking to is operating legally. It will also insure you have recourse in the event of a problem.
