If you’re moving, there are surely a few things you’re dreading, and choosing a moving company is probably high on the list. Selecting the right movers can eliminate moving-day stress and give you peace of mind that your belongings will be safe while they are out of your care. Don’t just pick the first mover you find online or the one with the lowest price—you have to trust them with every single thing you own! Below are a few things to consider as you search the best Waukesha movers. 

Experience Counts

It’s not that the brand new moving company won’t do a good job, but do you want to take a chance on a mover that is unproven? Instead, choose movers Waukesha residents have trusted for years! An experienced moving company will have professional affiliations and staff that knows the best ways of doing things to ensure safe arrival of the things you care about most. 

Behrens is a fourth-generation family-owned business that has been helping people make their moves since 1926!

Be Wary of Over-the-Phone Estimates

It’s difficult to provide an accurate moving estimate over the phone. Not all 2-bedroom apartments are the same, and the costs to move such a space can vary greatly depending on factors best assessed in person. Some companies provide an over-the-phone estimate, but the final bill is thousands of dollars more. Avoid that unpleasant surprise by choosing a Waukesha moving company that comes to your home to provide an accurate, written estimate of your moving costs. 

Behrens offers free, in-home estimates, so the number on the final invoice will be what you expect!

Don’t Compare Apples to Oranges

Another mistake some people make is to compare the prices of two Waukesha movers, but not take into account that the companies are offering very different levels of service. One mover might do nothing more than load your boxes onto the truck. Another company may charge more, but offer a full menu of services that will not only make moving day easier, but also help ensure that your belongings arrive safe and sound at your new home. Be sure to understand exactly what services you’re getting for the quoted price. 

Behrens offers both full-service moving and options that allow you to pick just the services you want, so we have packages to fit every need and every budget!

Can They Do it All?

Some moving companies offer limited services, but you should look for movers who can handle moves of any size and to any location. The best, most experienced movers will be able to tackle any relocation, and that’s the kind of company you want on your side on moving day!

Whether you’re moving a studio apartment

or a large family home, the professional staff at Behrens has you covered. Plus, as an Allied Van Lines agent, we can take on your relocation whether you’re moving down the street, across the country, or around the world!

Check Licenses and Professional Affiliations

If a moving company is unscrupulous, they could lie about any type of affiliations or licensing. The onus is on you to verify licenses, bonds, and any professional affiliations or accolades, such as BBB accreditation, ProMover status, and membership in the American Moving & Storage Association

Our long-standing BBB accreditation, agent status with top-rated Allied Van Lines, and other professional affiliations make us a trusted Waukesha moving company

Read (and Heed) Customer Reviews

It’s said that the best predictor of future behavior is past behavior, and it’s fair to apply this line of thinking to moving companies. Waukesha residents should always check the online reviews of any movers they are considering. You’re not necessarily looking for perfection as there are always those few customers that are impossible to please. Instead, read as many reviews as you can to get an overview of how the company is able to satisfy the needs of their customers, whether they keep their promises, and how, as a whole, they rate with past clients. If the majority of the reviews are negative, find another company. 

Behrens takes customer service very seriously, and this is reflected in our many positive customer reviews! We love reading reviews from satisfied clients, because it means we’re doing our job right and providing quality, courteous service to everyone who chooses us for their move!
