In the relocation business, moving companies may come and go, so you want to be sure you’re hiring a legitimate moving company. Proper insurance and licensing of a moving company is a must when you are looking for a reliable CT moving company to care for your possessions on the road.
Looks can be deceiving
Just because a moving company has a nice website and colorful logos on their vehicles does not necessarily qualify them as a reliable moving company. Since the majority of us don’t frequently have the need for moving companies, many of us aren’t aware that there are actually many “fly-by-night” moving companies. These “rogue” moving companies are waiting to take advantage of innocent customers. Your best bet is to do your homework so that you will avoid moving scams.
Ensure your moving company has insurance and proper licenses
Because moving companies handle the personal property of customers and enter into their private homes, moving companies must hold proper licensing or permits. Among the many important details you should research when searching for a moving company, make sure the mover has insurance and is licensed by the proper authority. A legitimate, established moving company is experienced in handling your property, providing reasonable estimates, and dealing with customer claims.
