    One of the first things you’d want to do before hiring a moving company is to check the information it has provided. You should look for a website or a profile page on social media networks. Make sure to check their phone number and address. Try to find out if the company has changed its name in the past two years. This can be a potential red flag. Also, try to find some photos as they can tell you a lot about the company. You can see in what condition their moving equipment is and there might even be some pictures from other people’s relocations. The more information you find, the better.

    Keep in mind that these things you’d want to do even if you are hiring a company just because you need to store some of your belongings in self storage Boise.

    Make sure the company is certified and has a USDOT number

    Another thing you will need to do before hiring a moving company is to ask for their license number. If a company doesn’t have one or avoids giving you its number, stay away from it. This is a sign you are talking to scammers. And, if they do give you a number, you can check it online, in just a couple of seconds. One of the benefits of hiring van line affiliated movers is that you don’t have to worry about whether a company is licensed or not. They all are licensed and they all are reliable.

    Check online reviews and ratings to confirm moving company credibility

    While you look for information about the company you want to hire, you should also visit sites for leaving reviews and ratings. Check whether the moving company you want to hire has been reviewed. This is a great way to check moving company credibility since you will be able to read about someone else’s moving experience and see if everything went according to plan. Beware, this isn’t one of those tasks for the night before the move. You need to do this well in advance, and not after hiring movers.

    Schedule a meeting with the company’s representative

    If everything seems good so far, it’s time to schedule a meeting with the company’s representative. This can tell you a lot about a moving company. If its representative seems unprofessional, unfriendly, doesn’t want to provide you with all the information, or seems uninterested – then you probably don’t want to have anything with the company this person represents. You want to look for professionals who can help you move safely.

    There you have it – these were the best ways to check moving company credibility. In case you had a bad relocation or you’ve stumbled upon scammers, make sure to file a moving fraud complaint as quickly as possible. After doing this, you will be informed about the further steps.
