Finding a reputable mover

Movers

As fall approaches many of us, including myself are in transition and moving into new homes.

Moving is stressful. Packing and unpacking is sometimes the least of your worries.

Finding a reputable mover is always the biggest challenge.

I have heard more horror stories than fairy tale endings from my clients after their moves. My last move was a disaster, with timelines changing and many boxes missing after the fact.

The best way to find a mover who you can rely upon is to ask around. If you have the benefit of a ‘NextDoor’ Network in your area, this is the perfect place to begin. Next Door is a free bulletin board system that broadcasts things for sale, things for free and a provides a general chat line within your neighborhood. It is an amazing resource and even helped me find my missing cat a few weeks back.if you don’t have a Next Door system in your neighborhood, you can start one yourself with little effort. Check it out – I love this free resource! As a disclaimer, the links include an affiliate link back to me.

After you get a few recommendations and a few mover quotes, go one step further and check out their insurance coverage.

If you live in California, follow this procedure to see if they are insured and reputable.

1. Go to PUC website : https://delaps1.cpuc.ca.gov/pls/public_cpuc/f?p=203:35:14893983128020::NO:RP::
2. Choose: moving company (MTR).
3. Enter Carrier ID (0190802) or Carrier Name/ DBA (Vector Moving.
4. Press submit.
You will then see all the license and insurance information for the vendors you are considering hiring.

If you live outside of California, google search your government website for similar systems. The best way to protect yourself is to double check each mover before you hire them so make sure to do your due diligence in advance!
