1. Make sure that your moving quote is based upon a visual survey.
One of the biggest mistakes that people make when booking a move is assuming that a phone quote is guaranteed. The only way to obtain a binding quote is to have your household goods visually surveyed by a moving company.
2. Use a reputable mover for your move.
The American Moving and Storage Association (AMSA) has established the ProMover program to provide an easy way for consumers to separate reputable professional movers from rogue operators and con artists. All of the movers in the Move Advocate Network are ProMover certified.
