6 Questions Before You Hire a Corporate Moving Company
Hire the best out of the lot of corporate moving companies on your list. Bad choices will always get you, so use care and caution when you choose a service provider. Here are some questions you’ll want to ask.
Is the company licensed?
Look for credentials. Is the company licensed to provide commercial transport services? In what areas? Some companies might only be authorized to provide that service in one state. Check to make sure you hire one that’s recognized nationally, especially if you need interstate moving assistance.
How long has it been around?
A firm that’s been around for ten years and even more is infinitely better than one that’s only been in operation for less than three years. If the company has survived the industry for that long, it means it already has established processes along with the right equipment and an awesome amount of experience that make it possible for the company to deliver the best possible service to each and every client.
What is its reputation?
A firm that’s been in the business long enough should have a reputation that mirrors its track record. If you keep finding negative comments, though, or even complaints against the firm, that could be a deal-breaker. Go over the reviews and check if these are valid or not. Some comments might be fabricated by the competition.
What do the comments say?
Also, finding a complaint or two isn’t a strong enough reason to dismiss an entire business. Are the comments made by real customers? You can’t please everybody, so there will be negative comments and that’s okay. That doesn’t mean the service quality is bad. Sometimes, it’s all a matter of finding a firm that’s right for your needs.
What are the common issues?
When you went over the comments, what kind of problems or issues did many of the previous customers encounter? If they mention nearly the same problem, then that indicates recurring issues within the company. You’ll want to reconsider your hiring decision at this point.
How long will it take?
Get an estimate on how long the job will take. That way, you can plan and organize your own schedule. Be sure to ask about their availability on your dates too. If you want to make sure you get the company you want, ask in advance. Don’t wait until the eleventh hour before you hire the firm for the job.
