Humboldt Storage and Moving answers one of the most common questions of the moving season
April 16, 2012 - PRLog -- Humboldt Storage and Moving, the oldest moving company in Boston, largest United Van Lines agent and experts in stress-free moving, have been in business for well over 100 years. Over that time, many questions have arisen about a whole host of moving topics. One that the company hears quite often is how to find a reputable moving company.

As the busy moving season approaches, countless people and families across the country are getting ready to move. Humboldt has come up with a number of tips to find the right moving company;

One mistake many people make is hiring right through the internet, without an in-home estimate. Often times these companies are actually move brokers with no physical locations or equipment. They simply sell the move and only act as a middleman. Always hire a moving company that has a physical address, the proper licenses and its own professional staff.

Always get three estimates for the moving job and ask those moving companies for references. The way companies draw up estimate can vary so it’s a very good idea to compare at least three. When presented with the estimates, don’t be afraid to ask questions about how the moving company came to that estimate.

Once the consumer has selected the moving company for the job, it’s important to have clarity on what the company will do and what the customer is responsible for. To have a stress-free move it is critical to know all the services that are going to be performed by the moving company such as packing, crating, appliance disconnections, parking permits among others. In short, make sure everyone is on the same page.

“Finding a reputable moving company does not have to be a stressful occasion if the consumer knows what questions to ask and is educated about the process,” says James Sullivan, president of Humboldt Storage and Moving. “ Getting at least three estimates, asking the moving company for references and being clear on who will do what are keys to a successful and stress-free move.”
