Green Checkmark choose right moving companyWhen you are about to move into a new home, you start looking for a reliable Lakewood moving company. You do not want to risk your furniture, electronics and home appliances getting damaged or lost. But how can you be sure that you will select a professional team of movers?


There are several things you can do to determine the trustworthiness of a moving company:


  1. Check for Accreditations

Companies with a good reputation usually have a rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website. And they also proudly display the rating on their own websites. There are other services where consumers can rate service providers, such as Angie’s List or Yelp.


  1. Look Over the Detailed Services They Provide

Experienced moving companies go in detail explaining what they can do for customers. For example, they will state that they can provide cold storage or controlled atmosphere for sensitive items, or that they are specialized in moving valuable pieces of furniture and items such as piano, pool tables, large statues and artworks, etc.


  1. Read Customer Testimonials

If you cannot find any customer testimonials on a moving company website, this is a red flag, unless the company has just opened. In reality, each reputable company has at least 3-4 positive testimonials displayed on the home page of their website or on a special section for reviews and client cases.
