Why people choose well-known expensive moving companies?
Leading moving companies like TWO MEN AND A TRUCK always enjoy the moving season, because customer just won’t stop moving. If you plan to become a customer of one moving company or another, make sure to make the right choice and have a hassle-free move.
Of course, it is a huge temptation to hire movers, offering you the lowest quote. Who wouldn’t want to save money? However, you shouldn’t expect that the company, which offers you the lowest rate, is capable of providing the quality of moving services that you need. Below, we present you recommendations, which can help you find the moving company that you can trust.
At Atlantic Group, we always treat our clients the best possible way. In fact, we try to put ourselves in the position of our customers and constantly comply with the best practices in service you can find out there.

We understand how difficult it is to find a company and actually not to worry about your belongings during a move. Please, read carefully the recommendations we have for you, and use them to protect yourself against careless movers.
Check the company’s license.
Before you even let the company representative enter your house to proceed with assessment, it is wise to check the license of this moving company. Visit the U.S. Department of Transportation site and check the license number that the company gives you. If it is valid, you’ll find it there. If it is not, forget about this moving company for good.
Check whether your belongings will be ensured during the move
Yes, it is a good thing when the movers are insured. However, it is very important that your belongings are insured as well. As a rule, moving companies offer an insurance, which covers $0.6 per pound of weight of your items. It is not that much, and you might want to get additional insurance, which you usually can purchase.
Check whether the company is real
Start with visiting the official website of the moving company you have chosen. Check their contact information for a local office and phone number. Dealing with ‘ghost’ moving companies is a very bad idea.
Ask for a real quote with no hidden fees
While browsing the company’s website, do your best to find their actual quote for the moves and different services they offer. Avoid dealing with companies, whose site includes price offers of different moving companies.
Make sure the movers’ background is checked
While Atlantic Group only works with movers, whose background was fully checked and who pass regular drug screens, not all companies choose the same policy about their employees. If you see that the company hires movers on a temporary or daily basis, better avoid this company, as it doesn’t really care about the safety of your belongings. Such companies usually never offer any coverings for unfavorable events.
Take your time to check the options available
These days, it is easy to find comments and reviews on the Internet about the quality of services of literally every company out there. Yes, it might be time-consuming, but it’s definitely worth checking. Diving into customer experience and checking reputation sites is essential to get a good idea of who you plan to deal with.
We don’t say that you should only deal with a company, which doesn’t have a single bad review. It is impossible. Unexpected and unfavorable things can happen during a move. Still, if you see that these are rather rare and that the company does take the time to answer them, and answers respectfully and reasonably, there is a good chance that you can trust it.
Don’t let the low price trick you
If you get an incredibly low price for your move, you might end up being all stressed out with the way it’s going to go. Don’t forget that moving your household is an expensive process. Yes, even if you decide not to hire a moving company or a team of movers to help you. And if you choose the option “I can cope with it myself”, plan ahead and try to think through every small detail. What concerns the payment options, if the company you chose offers cash only options, it is wise to stay away from it.
Save yourself from possible hidden fees
Ask the moving company to give you an exact quote and the things that it includes. Also check for the cancelation fees, as these might be too high. If you are asked for a deposit, make sure to check whether it is refundable or not, and when is it best to cancel your move (if you have to) in order not to lose the deposit.
Also, check for additional payments for some unconventional situations, like large items, stairs or distance.
Ask your family and friends to give references about the moving company they used
Your relatives and acquaintances could have used the services of the company that you have chose, or used another moving company, who you might like. It is wise to ask as many questions as you have about the movers – to get an idea of how you will be served and what you will get for your money.
It is important to find a moving company, which can become your partner for the move. Atlantic Group does its best to provide the moving services of the highest quality and give best results of every move.
