Hiring residential movers for a long distance relocation is a daunting task, and as a leading Milwaukee long distance moving company, we’re all about making the moving process easier for our customers. Before you select movers based on the lowest quote, ask the following questions to be sure you’re getting the quality you want and the services you need.

What is Your Company’s History?

You don’t need to choose the oldest moving company you find, but the importance of experience can’t be understated. You also want to ask about current employees:  Do they hire full-time moving crews or temporary staff? Do they conduct background checks on employees? At Behrens, we invest in our employees to ensure they offer the highest quality service.

Do You Have Any Affiliations or Distinctions?

Ask is whether or not a moving company has ProMover status with the American Moving and Storage Association because this distinction shows that a company has completed an industry certification program on best practices. Also ask about van line affiliations, BBB accreditations, and other professional memberships. If you can find a company with all of these, like Behrens, you’ve found a reputable moving company.

What Types of Moves do You Provide?

Not every company offers the same services, so be sure you know what limits your company has. Whether you need local or interstate moving or even an international moving company, you want to be 100% positive that your company will be able to accommodate your needs. At Behrens Moving Company, we provide services for all types of moves including international and specialized moving.

What is the Payment Policy?

Be wary of companies that ask for a large deposit or payment in full upfront. Deposits are standard procedure, but if you’re being asked to pay for a majority of the move before your boxes are even packed, look elsewhere.

Don’t let just anyone handle your most prized and irreplaceable items, choose a company that has a history of success.
