Perform a visual survey of your household goods and give you a not-to-exceed or binding price. A phone survey is not a guaranteed estimate.
Give Written Estimates—do not accept a verbal estimate.
File and Publish a Tariff—Reputable movers have filed a tariff with the government for state-to-state moves. The tariff outlines exactly how their prices are calculated. Movers may discount from this tariff, but they may not exceed it. If a mover does not have a published tariff they are not a reputable mover.
Ask for payment upon delivery, not before.
Not jeopardize quality service by “low-balling” the estimate for your move. An estimate that is significantly below that of other recognized movers is a red flag.
Have his/her own moving trucks and equipment. A reputable mover will not show up in a truck marked with another moving company’s name on the side.
Be designated as a ProMover by the American Moving & Storage Association, AMSA.
