3 Men Movers has an internal attitude that permeates through to its customers! What is that attitude? “It’s our move!” They really do make their clients feel as though they’re making the move together. The service is personal and provides a feeling of security. Especially, when one considers that your possessions are being transported by complete strangers.
I invited Lauren Pickens of 3 Men-Movers to provide some inside details on the company and the service they provide! So, I’ll leave it to our guest blogger:
5 Must Do’s To Find Reliable Movers In Houston
During our 32 years as Houston movers, we have heard endless stories from clients who have booked with shady moving companies in the past and are hesitant to trust movers again. To protect yourself from these illegitimate companies we have outlined the five ways to ensure you are booking with movers you can trust!
1. Check to see if their TXDMV# is valid
One of the most important, and least known ways consumers can ensure that they are booking with a legitimate moving company is to check their DMV#. Every legal mover is required by law to list their DMV# on their website (it’s usually located in the footer) and on their trucks. By simply typing the number that you find into the Texas DMV truckstop site, you can verify that you are booking your move with legitimate movers.
2. Make sure they are BBB accredited
Another important step is verifying that your movers are BBB accredited! Simply type the business name into the search bar on the BBB site and you can find out whether or not the company is accredited, what complaints they may have outstanding, and their letter rating.
3. Be sure to ask plenty of questions about the fine print
Unfortunately, not all moving companies are forthcoming about their service. Keep reading for the questions you may not think to ask but need to know before you book.
● Are there any special fees for large items?
● Does the hourly rate begins when they leave their office or when they start moving?
● Is there an hourly minimum?
● Are there fees for travel time (sometimes referred to as fuel charges)?
4. Do some digging online
Check out their social media platforms and reviews on sites like Yelp, Facebook, and Google +. Checking these websites gives you the opportunity to see what other customers have to say about their service and you also get the chance to see how they interact with their clients.
5. Ask around
While online research is great, there’s nothing wrong with doing things the old fashioned way. Get the opinions of your friends and family. See what movers they have used in the past and what their experience was like.
Ensuring that you are booking with reliable movers may take more effort, but when all of your belongings are in your new home without a scratch, you’ll be glad that you put in the time and booked with pros! Happy moving!
Thanks Lauren! And, keep up the great work! We at Tanglewood Luxury Real Estate appreciate all the great things you do for our clients!!!
