There are a wide range of Portland moving companies to select from. There are plenty of fly-by-night companies and then there are those with the experience and service you and your family deserve. Moving is rather difficult to begin with and it’s not easy to juggle everything life throws at you and also work on finding a good moving company. However, we can help streamline the process a bit. Here are 3 aspects to look out for:
Professionalism and experience go a long way. While it is true that most anyone with money can purchase a nice looking website, that is a good initial criteria. If the moving company is presenting their very best face to the public, then it’s more likely that they will be interested in serving your best interests. Then, check to see how long they’ve been in the business. Companies come and go in this industry, so if you find one that has been through all of the ups and downs of a long-standing business, then you’ll know that you’re on the right track.
Insurance is probably one of the key elements in a move. You trust your Portland movers with your most prized possessions, so you want to be assured that everything will be covered in the event of an unforeseen event. Any good company will be happy to discuss their insurance policy and how it covers you and your possessions. If they balk, then you might want to find another company to help you and your family in this pivotal chapter of your life.
You’ll probably want to deal with a full-service company. Even if you don’t necessarily need everything they have to offer, you will be happy you’re doing business with a company which can, for instance, pack you up at the last minute when a situation arises in your life. You might also find that you need to store items either while you are in-between homes or once you have moved. Streamline that process with a full-service company who can take your belongings directly to the storage unit. One stop shopping never was better!
