In the moving industry, there is often confusion around the differences between moving companies and brokers. At All Points Moving & Storage, we’re here to help explain the differences for you so that you are prepared when it comes to your next move.
Who Does the Work?
When it comes to marketing, both moving companies and brokers advertise that they can handle your move, but who actually does the work? Well, a moving company, handles the actual move itself from beginning to end. As a moving company ourselves, our team at All Points Moving & Storage does not outsource the move to other companies. We can handle the packing, transporting and manage moving all of your possessions, big or small. A moving broker on the other hand doesn’t physically help with the move at all.
How Much Control do you Want?
By working with a moving company for your upcoming move, you have direct contact with the moving company. For example, you’d have the ability to call our team at All Points Moving & Storage anytime during the moving process and ask any questions or provide any recommendations that you find. You have total control around every aspect of your move. If you choose to let a moving broker handle your move, you’re handing off the control to the broker. The moving broker will evaluate your move and sell this moving project to a moving company. Depending on their contacts and relationships, they typically try and find you the best moving company to work with, but that’s not always the case.
Be Cautious with Moving Brokers
When dealing with a moving broker, you have to be cautious as to what moving company they match you up with. Be cautious that some brokers will match you up with the moving company who offers the cheapest price, but that may not always be the best moving company for your move. Just make sure that you trust your moving broker and that they have your best interests in mind at all times.
At All Points Moving & Storage, our customers are our number one priority. We are a moving company that offers the total package when it comes to your upcoming residential move.
