5 Questions to Ask Your Moving Company
Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Moving Company
When you’re looking for professional Pensacola movers to help with your move, doing thorough research is necessary. You’ll want to avoid moving scams and unscrupulous movers and find Pensacola movers you can trust and depend on. In many cases, online research can only take you so far.
Once you filter your potential choices down to two of three moving companies, you can start asking a few questions. Here are five important questions to ask before hiring a moving company.
1. Are You Licensed?
Start your interview with this important question. Moving companies that are not properly licensed should raise a red flag, they are most likely not legitimate moving companies. Avoid falling victim to a moving scam by working with Pensacola movers that have either a state or national license.

2. What Moves Are You Experienced With?
A lot of moving companies offer a wide range of moving services, but not all of them have the experience to back it up. That’s why you should ask which types of moves they are most experienced executing.

Our Pensacola movers have helped thousands of families and companies execute their residential and commercial moves. We are also experts at corporate relocations and packing services.
3. What Liability Coverage Do Your Provide?
Even though all moving companies are legally required to offer basic liability protection, it is good to ask what other liability coverage plans your potential Pensacola movers offer. Moving companies typically also offer full value protection and other moving insurance options. Make sure you understand the terms, provisions, and differences of all available insurance plans before choosing the one to be included into your bill of lading.
4. Are Your Employees Covered by Workers’ Comp and Public Liability Insurance?
You really should find out if your potential Pensacola movers are covered by workers’ compensation or public liability insurance. If your moving company doesn’t provide these protections, you may become responsible to pay for any injuries that occur on your property.
5. Do You Have Storage Facilities?
In some cases, you may need to store away some of your belongings in a storage unit during the moving process. When interviewing your potential movers, ask what kinds of storage services and facilities they offer. At All My Sons Moving & Storage of Pensacola, we offer short-term and long-term storage solutions.
