Most homeowners have spent years collecting the items in their homes. Many of those items cost a great deal of money while other items hold only sentimental value as they remind us of a special trip or an event in our lives. Now, with close to 100 million Americans deciding to right size or downsize, it is especially important to choose a moving and storage company which has professionally trained staff to handle your assets. The more trained and experienced staff are, the more likely they are to know exactly to pack and handle your family’s assets.

Here are four things to look for in a moving company which has professionally trained staff.

  1. Length Of Time In Business - This is not always an indicator that the staff have been professionally trained, but it speaks to how long the company has managed to stay in businesses. It is difficult for any moving business to say they have professionally trained staff if they are a newer company.
  2. Great Google Reviews - Many online review sites like Yelp, rely on paid advertising and will give fake reviews to horrible companies, just for the monthly paid advertising. Google reviews really are about the business and tend to be very accurate. Also, stay away from choosing a company that lists “paid ads” in search results. These companies often just rely on people to call them because they are at the top of an internet search.
  3. References - Before hiring a moving and storage company, ask trusted friends and neighbors. Make sure, however, that they had items which required professionally trained staff to handle. Some moving companies can have a good reputation for just moving “stuff” that has little sentimental or monetary value. If there is professional packing and handling needed, only a company with professionally trained staff will do an excellent job.
  4. Never Shop Price - If you need professionally trained staff to handle your art, wine, heirlooms and antiques, the right company will NEVER be the cheapest. The best companies will charge according to the level of service they offer and will charge according to their reputation.
