I’ve had some good experiences with moving companies and one experience that still leaves me shaking. It only takes one incident to make you realize how important it is to do all you can to ensure your belongings are in the best possible hands.
So how do you find and hire a reliable moving company?
Most of the people you know have moved at least once in their life. Ask your friends, family, and even colleagues if they can recommend a moving company or if there’s a company they don’t recommend. Both lists are valuable when choosing a moving mover.
How to Hire Good Movers

Check out their website, and in particular, their moving companies comparison chart where you can compare moving companies: great resource and a great place to helps you in the moving process.
Hiring good movers can be difficult. There are so many to choose from, with many offering incentives and discounts. So, how do you know which company to hire? Find out with these tips and suggestions.
Do Your Research
When you check the moving company with the Better Business Bureau, the company has no records at all. Sometimes such a result means the company has not had any complaints; however, it can also mean that the company changes its name so frequently that the new name is not registered at all. In fact, rogue movers change their name so often, it’s difficult to trace their history.
Finally, you go to the Flyttebyrå Oslo website, and there are several postings on their message boards that complain about the potential mover. This is probably the best resource on the web for finding out about rogue movers. If you can’t find anything posted against the company you’re thinking of hiring, post your own message and ask. Someone will respond with their own experience. Take their advice or post your own.

How Much Do I Tip the Movers?
I had an email from a woman who was moving from one end of the city to another, and she wanted to know the rules about tipping the movers. It’s a good question and one that not many people ask or are even aware that such a tipping practice exists.
While I’ve had my share of bad movers, overall, the majority have done their job well. And when that happens, I certainly compensate the movers not only because a good job should always be rewarded, but also because I may need their services in the future. A good tip will usually guarantee that they’ll go that extra mile should I need them to. Find out how much to tip and when in this moving FAQ.

Moving Company Estimates – The Essential Elements of Mover Quotes and Estimates
I once went with the cheapest movers I could find. I was still in college and was barely making it from month to month. What I didn’t know at the time was that I needed to take into consideration other factors than just how much my stuff weighed and what the price is per pound.
Remember that not all estimates are created equal, and while one moving company may seem cheaper than another, there are four key factors you need to consider when comparing movers. And don’t forget to make sure you get estimates from at least three companies (five preferred) before you hire.
