Finding a reliable moving company for your local move is one of the most important decisions to make in the process of your move. There are plenty of options out there, and while you have a timeline to adhere to, you shouldn’t rush into a decision you may regret later.

Here are three pitfalls you need to avoid when you’re searching for the best Minneapolis moving company for your move.

Not Getting Quotes From at Least Three Movers

Your move and your possessions are too important to use the first moving company you find online or that a friend mentions. Recommendations from friends and family are great, but you should do a little due diligence of your own. Follow this simple process:

  • Research moving companies online and read reviews
  • Narrow it down to a few that offer the services you want
  • Contact each of them for a customized moving quote

Choosing a Mover Based Only on Price

When you receive your quotes, don’t simply pick the lowest price! Cheapest rarely means best, so consider the whole picture. (In fact, a quote that is much lower than the others or that seems too good to be true could be an indication of rogue movers who try to lure people in with cheap quotes.)

Look each quote over carefully and compare them.

  • What is included in their pricing?
  • Are there services you may want that are not included?
  • Are there any other fees you need to be aware of that are not listed?
  • Does the quote have line items so you can see the exact breakdown?

Weigh the pros and cons of each company, their services, and what they include in their quote to find the best fit for you.

Not Asking the Right Questions

Don’t be afraid to ask questions about your quote, their services, or their company. A reputable moving company should be willing and able to answer your questions at any point in the process.

In addition to questions about your quote and what services they offer, you should ask the right questions to ensure their moving company is reputable.
