How to Find a Reliable Moving Company

13367124451334882953srteam“Dear Ikem, I recently started obtaining quotes from moving companies and now I’m more confused than ever.  Some quotes are extremely low.  Some are extremely high.  Some offer a variety of services while other offer different services.  Some can do it on the date we need while others give us a three-day window when they can do it.  How is one to know which companies are reliable and which price quotes are fair?”

You might be surprised how often we get an email like the one above.  The simple fact is that obtaining quotes from moving companies and for that matter auto transport companies can be very, very confusing and, quite frankly, infuriating at times.

Although there is no simple answer to the question above, there are a couple things to consider:

  1. If the price seems too good to be true it probably is.
  2. The more advanced notice you can give a moving company, the better your chances of moving on the day you require.
  3. Generally speaking, most major moving companies are fairly close in their price quotes.
  4. Reliability is based on experience, so finding as many references as possible is very helpful.

What would I suggest to the person who wrote this email?  I would suggest she turn her relocation problems over to me at  This is what we do for a living.  We deal with these moving companies quite a few times each year. We have a working relationship with them, and we know the good from the bad.
