When getting an estimate, it is important that you are as descriptive as possible. Make a complete list of all the items that need to be moved, including any miscellaneous. Small items may look easy to move but if they are not packed properly, could require multiple walking trips to the truck or having to take the elevator in your building many times. Large items should always be precisely described since we do require a larger crew size for heavy items. Be aware of some companies “low-balling” your estimate. There are many scammers who would offer you to complete the move for less than it should be and then “hostage” your goods before you pay them the final price, which usually is much higher than the estimate.
Finding a reliable moving company is not easy and many people fall into scams on classified ads. When choosing a moving company, it is important that you look for several important pieces of information. First, the company needs to have a website. Moving companies without licenses and insurance are not allowed to advertise on the internet. When viewing the company’s website, take a look at the bottom of the website and make sure they have the license information. You can check if the information is current by going to the Missouri Household Goods - Motor Carriers website.
