Whether you’re looking for movers just to get you from point A to point B, or if you’re in the market for full service movers who will take care of all aspects of your move (including packing, loading and unloading), it’s important to know what you’re getting into, and whether or not the company you’re choosing is the right one for you.
Additionally, if you’re looking for a full service moving service as an alternative to moving yourself, but aren’t convinced you need full service movers as of yet, there are a few things to take into consideration.
No matter where you’re headed, you might think that you don’t need to hire movers to take care of your relocation for you, or that the cost difference will be too large to reconcile within your budget. However, depending on the size and scope of your move, not only will the cost of moving yourself be comparable to hiring full service movers, but you’ll be saving yourself a lot of time, stress, and physical strain. When you’re pulling off a move, time is money – and it might be worth it to research having your move taken care of for you.
When you’re researching any service, odds are you’re going to run into some scammers or those looking to rip you off – especially when it comes to moving. Oftentimes, if you don’t do your full research or cover all of your bases, it can be a little hard to spot moving scams until it’s too late.
So how do you avoid moving scams? It all comes down to doing extremely thorough research and asking the right questions. First of all, make sure you’re not going in blind. Ask friends or trusted colleagues for moving service recommendations, and make sure they’ve had positive experiences and received good pricing for their move.
Also, once you’ve received recommendations, make sure to also check these companies out on sites like Yelp, the Better Business Bureau, and Angie’s List to make sure that all of their customers have received excellent service and pricing from them.
After doing this, also research the company with the American Moving & Storage Association, and see if they are certified or otherwise accredited from other reputable moving associations. See if they’re partnered with a larger reputable van line company as well.
Finally, ask for the company’s U.S. Department of Transportation registration number, and look up any federally registered complaints they might have.
Before you hire a company, make sure to ask them the hard hitting questions that will not only let them know that you mean business, but that will also ensure that you know exactly what you’re getting into as far as costs, timelines, and overall service.
To make sure you receive the best price, service, and overall experience during your move, it’s imperative to make sure you’ve done your research and are going into your move with confidence.

The driver was the head of the crew, and he was on top of everything. He made the experience working with Hollander Moving a pleasure. We have used others before but it was our first time using Hollander. Everything turned out great.
Every employee I worked with was courteous, professional, and exceedingly competent. I was nervous about the packing and long distance move (from Illinois to New Mexico, October 2009) and Hollander helped make the move as smooth as possible. Not a thing was damaged or broken
I would recommend Hollander to any company thinking about switching vendors, and any family making a move. A Hollander rep even stopped by my new place when they were unloading just to check on things.
Wonderful service – first class!
Everything Hollander has done was over the top. It was courteous people, polite, caring. Their friendliness was over the top. There was one member of the crew who’d been a friend for 30 years, and the rest was family. I couldn’t say enough about them.
I recently moved from Chicago to Tampa and expected a few road bumps along the way but was pleasantly surprised when everything from loading to delivery was flawless. Everyone I came in contact with was very professional and knowledgable. I highly recommend Hollander Moving and Storage as they are a class act.
This move envolved packing and delivery to four different destinations. Attention to detail and coordination were vital and effectively executed by Tony R driver and his crew. Ardene did a great job coordinating everything. The entire group were both extremely pleasant and efficient.
