What to Ask Your San Antonio packing Company

When you’re looking for the best and most efficient packing and moving company to handle your moving needs, you’ll want to perform adequate research. With seemingly countless moving companies in every city, it can be hard to determine which one to trust into your home, and with your most beloved belongings. That’s why All My Sons Moving & Storage has provided a list of the most important questions your potential packing company should answer before you agree on a start date.  

Is your packing and moving company properly licensed?

It’s important that your packing and moving company provides qualified, trusted movers who are properly certified and insured to handle your needs. A legitimate local and cross-country mover will have a US Department of Transportation number (USDOT) issued. A quality moving company will be willing to provide you with this number to ensure real and legal packing services. Another positive sign is if a company has a membership and good standing with the Better Business Bureau. This shows reliability and trustworthiness in their services.

How long has your packing and moving company been in business?

The length a company has been in business points to the kind of diverse experience they offer as well as the quality of services performed. Companies that have been in business for years have yielded successful results that have made them stay competitive for so long. You may want to consider hiring an established moving company with years of experience so you can feel comfortable with them handling the packing and moving services in an efficient manner. 

Does your company provide the necessary equipment?

What good is a packing company if they don’t provide you with the supplies you need? Make sure your movers show up with the right equipment: properly sized moving trucks, dollies, boxes, tape, protective padding, bubble wrap, and other necessary resources to keep your items safe. You can consult a moving company about the kinds of equipment they use for packing, transporting, and unpacking services. A full-service moving company usually provides the adequate materials and resources to your home before the transit takes place.

 What references can you provide?

When you are performing research on packing companies, you want to come across satisfied customers who share their positive experience. People are more likely to trust previous customers than a moving consultant at first, and strong references give a good indication of dependability. Choose a moving company that can offer strong testimonials of their quality service.  

What kind of storage do you offer?

Storage facilities are one of the most helpful tools during a move. They’re the perfect place for the items you want to put aside until the moving process is complete. Our San Antonio moving company has climate controlled storage facilities, located all over the country. These storage units are set at temperatures that ensure your items don’t become warped, broken, or damaged due to extreme temperatures. Additionally, they’re great at keeping pests and dusts out.
