How to Choose a Moving Company in Atlanta
If you’re looking for a moving company to move you from state to state (interstate moving), your moving company should have a US DOT number ours is 2161279, which is a unique license number issued by the United States Department of Transportation. Make sure your mover’s DOT number is valid by searching it in this database. Before the US DOT number was created, there was the ICC MC number. Every moving company does not need to have this number, but if they do, that means they are well established and have been in business since early 1990s.
Moving companies moving you within a state (intrastate moving) should have state license numbers. In Georgia, this would be a GPSC or DPSC# ours is HG (Household Goods) 501257. You can search a Georgia mover in this database.
Also, verify that a company is insured on the same website you use to check their license number. Never use a moving company without a license number or insurance.
The Better Business Bureau (BBB) is a private, non-profit organization that monitors businesses and rates them on a scale from “F” to “A+” based on their practices. They are a well-known and widespread organization that consumers can trust when searching for a moving company. It’s important to check your moving company’s rating and how long they have had their rating. A moving company that has had an “A+” rating for a substantial amount of time is a solid choice.
Using a well established moving company is your best bet at getting good service. Not only does practice make perfect or what we call a rehearsal, but years of experience are the reasons that clients keep coming back for more. A company with over 23 years of experience isn’t there to turn a fast buck but is in business to keep moving you, your family and your referrals. Make memories!
Thankfully, no one wins awards and accolades for overcharging. If a moving company has a great reputation, that means they don’t slap you with a bill that makes you wanna call Channel 2 after the boxes have been unpacked. People don’t support a business and write five-star reviews when they think they’ve overpaid. No hidden charges. No rip-offs or scams. A good reputation is really the best way to make sure you’ll be getting a great rate in this market.
A moving company shouldn’t charge you for the privilege of possibly earning your business. A free on-site estimate or over a scheduled FaceTime survey, is your best chance to meet someone from the moving company in person you’re considering hiring. It’s a chance for you to get all your questions answered about your unique move scenarios. No two moves are alike, and the on-site or FaceTime survey is your chance to learn exactly what is included and excluded in the price structure. Who really wants surprises on moving day? With solid estimates and options, you can choose a moving company that’s the right for you.
Doing this research also helps you get the best price price for your move. People don’t give five star reviews to a company that ripped them off. Ask the moving company to provide proof they are the best. If they can’t prove it, chances are – they aren’t.
Paperwork in this move is crazy! It’s literally like buying a house considering a real licensed mover is regulated by so many different agencies like Department of Revenue, Department of Public Safety, Department of Labor, Department of Workers Compensation, Osha and Federal Motor Carrier agencies. Therefore every “T” & “I” counts. Luckily we have figured a way for you to do most of this online prior to movers arrival or at least familiarize yourself prior to our arrival. Keep in mind local movers charge from Hello and so while you’re reading their documents they are billing you.
Does your moving company have a Resourceful Solution To Atlanta fun locations? If they care about taking care of the precious time you have to find fun activities in Atlanta, chances are they care about taking care of you too.
Moving is never an exclusive product or a-la-carte. Shopping for the right moving company isn’t just about finding out the hourly rate of x-number of movers and a truck. It’s about having the moving company listen and learn about your exact move. A good moving company wants to hear all the details of your move. They will create a plan of action for moving day. Together you’ll decide the exact right number of skilled movers and the correct equipment needed to make sure your prized possessions are moved safely. So our pre-move questionnaire is huge and very awesome way to have you communicate with the sales team and drivers on move day prior to their arrival. It sets the standard of expectations from all parties from your choices on our service questionnaire.

Is your moving company looked to as “The Moving Expert?” Do they have a lot of buzz around their name? Experts aren’t born overnight; they have a long established track record for excellence.

What shoes a man has on tells you the type of person he/she is and what they represent. Don’t be fooled!
It’s not vital to choose a moving company with a passion for wearing shiny shoes vs. tennis shoes. It’s just first impression always counts!
~ But it’s kinda like would you rather the mover have a truck that won’t breakdown in transit or might because they are cheap on their equipment investing? If a man buys shiny shoes and wears them proudly then he probably invests wisely into his trucks and keeps them clean of bed bugs, trash and keeps his blankets clean for your furniture.
You’re about to trust that person with everything you own. Do you want used tennis shoes, broken down truck and nightmares for weeks or shiny shoes, clean-cut guys with clean equipment?
